The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 open beta will let you earn a handful of exclusive in-game goodies.
Ahead of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s release next month, you can sign up for the beta to get an early glimpse of the game. As an added incentive, you’ll also be able to unlock a bunch of skins, blueprints, and charms by leveling up during the testing period.
As revealed by Activision, the rewards will only be available to unlock during the beta but will carry over to the full game on release. They’ll also be available to use in Warzone 2 when the battle royale sequel releases later this year.
