Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will either go down as the most overhyped Call of Duty game or the best one yet.

Unlike the basic PC requirements revealed a few weeks ago, this goes into the specifics of what it is you'll need to run MW2. For what it's worth, it's not the most unreasonable, unless you're looking at the Ultra 4K category.

Either way, you will need to have Windows 10 64-bit with the latest updates installed to run MW2 on your PC as well as a phone number.
