2v2 Gunfight at season launch

The acclaimed game mode from Modern Warfare 2019 is making a comeback with the upcoming update. It's a battle between two teams of two players on close-quarters maps. The initial few maps to be featured in the rotation for the Gunfight mode include Alley, Blacksite, Shipment, and Exhibit. A variation of this game mode, Gunfight OSP, will also be added in which players have to acquire weapons placed around the map instead of simply spawning with them.
