The new mode from Sledgehammer Games has fans excited about the possibilities, with the developer calling it “a competitive 3v3v3 experience” in the official announcement.

Currthroat in MW3 will pin three teams of three (3v3v3) against each other across all of the revealed 6v6 Modern Warfare 3 maps

The individual squads will spawn in a triangle formation and be tasked with either taking down all of the other teams’ players or capturing a flag once the game reaches overtime to secure a victory.

“For 1v1 and 2v2 fans, Cutthroat will feel familiar with round-based elimination format and intense close-quarters. It’s 3v3v3 with custom Loadouts, a moving flag, and 3-way firefights,” the official Call of Duty account posted on X.

Plenty of posts under the reveal are asking that the new mode doesn’t replace Gunfight, but rather gives another option. One of the main differences between the two modes is that Cutthroat in MW3 will allow you to use your own custom loadout.

It’s not yet known whether it will or won’t at this point, but the community seems to be open to the new game mode either way.
