Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Gameplay Uncut: Flag Runner

Infinity Ward have released a new Modern Warfare 2 trailer showing the Flag Runner multiplayer game in action.

You can also see some of the weapons available when the player moves over them and the kill stats that pop up which shows some interesting and funny info. Keep watching to…

So how does Wacky Karts fare…
