The introduction of crossplay on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare marks the first time in Call of Duty franchise history that players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC can play together. Along with this unified experience, crossplay also enables cross-progression, which means your progression in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will carry over across all platforms linked to the same Activision/Call of Duty account.
The following information gives you an overview of how crossplay and cross-progression works and will help you add friends on other platforms and party up using Activision IDs.
To make crossplay possible, the game now requires players to log in to an Activision/Call of Duty account. If you don't have an Activision/Call of Duty account, you can create a free one here or in the game when you connect online for the first time.
Your Activision/Call of Duty account comes with a unique Activision ID, which is how you'll appear in game and how you and your friends can identify each other.
Game progress in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is stored on your Activision/Call of Duty account, not your platform account. That means your progression carries with you no matter which platform you play on as long as the platforms are linked to the same Activision/Call of Duty account.
Cross-progression includes XP and Weapon XP, items you've earned or unlocked through gameplay, Battle Pass progress, Campaign progress, and Missions and Challenges you've completed.
Cross-progression does not include Call of Duty Points (CP), however. You can only spend CP on the platform on which they were purchased, but items you purchase with CP are shared across all linked platforms.
Please note: If you choose to link a platform account to another Activision/Call of Duty account, your progress will not carry over.
Head to the Social menu to manage your friends. Friends appear in one of two categories: Activision friends and friends on your current platform.
Follow these steps to invite friends from other platforms.
Please note: Some older Activision IDs do not include numbers after the PlayerName.
You can also use this space to add players you recently played with to your Friends list.
Your invites will be under Received Requests. You'll also see the requests you've sent to other players.
Follow these steps if you’d like to be a Party Leader.
Return to the Party tab in the Social menu and select Party Settings to adjust your Party’s privacy settings.
Crossplay is enabled by default. However, if you only want to play with other players on your current platform, you can choose to disable crossplay.
On the Account tab, you can also choose to enable or disable text and voice chat with players on other platforms.
Crossplay supports all multiplayer modes in Modern Warfare.
Yes. In the pregame lobby, icons indicate each player’s platform and peripheral. Here are a few examples:
