How to Access Settings During a Match in Modern Warfare 2

So, is there a way to open settings during a match in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer? I know that what I’m about to say will sound unbelievable, but no, at the moment, there’s no way to access settings while in-game in MW2. It’s baffling we know, to have such a basic functionality missing from the game. But that’s how it is at the moment. A silver lining here is that this is not by design. The developers didn’t simply decide to prevent players from opening the menu while in a match. That would be silly, no. Rather, this is a bug.

Having the option to leave a match during a multiplayer game or access MW2 settings is there, but it is currently bugged. When pressing pause, many players are only able to change classes during a match, while others report that even that is not working for them. A number of players are currently experiencing the same issue. For now, there doesn’t seem to be a workaround for this problem. Hopefully, the developers will acknowledge this glitch soon and will be able to fix it in a timely manner. Nonetheless, we will update the article if we stumble upon a temporary solution. Do you have a fix? Share it with us in the comments section!

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
