Update: Just like AlterIWNet and FourDeltaOne, RepZ has came to end, too. As of 10th February 2016, RepZ has closed down all services. The following tutorial will not work anymore. It was fun while it lasted.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 doesn’t need an introduction for sure. Developed by Infinity Ward and released by Activision way back in 2009, Modern Warfare 2 is part of hugely popular Call of Duty series. And for the majority of players like me out there, first person shooters are not only about single player story mode, it’s all about multiplayer. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer is still being played by fans all over even after 6 years of its release.
Some gamers don’t prefer the multiplayer gameplay developed by Infinity Ward, though. There can be many reasons for this but a large number of players prefer to play Modern Warfare in a custom-made multiplayer environment on dedicated servers. And for all those who prefer these custom-made multiplayer Call of Duty games, AlterIWNet and FourDeltaOne are hardly unknown.
AlterIWNet used to provide alternate servers and client which allowed users to play Call of Duty Modern Warefare 2 ia s custom environment on dedicated servers. AlterIWNet was closed down due to cease and desist orders. After the demise of AlterIWNet, FourDeltaOne was developed and they too ceased their development after being well-received by gamers. Now the same multiplayer facility is developed by RepZ. RepZ allows gamers to browse and connect game servers hosted by other users. In this tutorial, we will show you how to play Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer using RepZ.
