How To Get A CoD: Modern Warfare 2 Beta Code With Xfinity

Existing Xfinity customers can score a free MW2 beta code.


Early access to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II beta began for PlayStation players on September 16, with an open beta scheduled to follow on all platforms the following week. However, though it's mostly only preorder players who gain access to the first beta period, there is actually one other way to do so. If you're an Xfinity customer, things are a lot easier. The internet service provider has partnered with Call of Duty this go-around to offer one free Modern Warfare II open beta code to each customer, and scoring it isn't a particularly difficult task.

How to get a free Modern Warfare 2 beta code from Xfinity

In order to access this free Modern Warfare 2 beta code, you'll first need to ensure that you have some type of service through Xfinity, as you won't be able to just score the code without service. If you're already a customer, though, follow the instructions below to snag the code and gain access.
