Call of Duty fans across the globe are gearing up for the release of the highly-anticipated Modern Warfare. The game, which is the first installment in the Modern Warfare series since 2011, has already been shown off by streamers and content creators - while PlayStation 4 owners got their hands on the 2v2 Gunfight alpha.
However, attention has quickly turned to the upcoming beta test. PS4 owners will again get a head start on the competition as Xbox and PC players have to wait their turn. Yet, that wait could get even longer as one leaker has begun filtering out details of what players can expect when they dive into the beta.
According to YouTuber TheGamingRevolution, who has had accurate leaks for Modern Warfare’s killstreaks and multiplayer perks previously, PS4 players will see a level cap of 10 once they get involved in the beta.
This, apparently, will not be lifted until Xbox and PC players also get their hands on the beta at a later date. Once they do, though, there will only be an extra ten levels to achieve during the beta and more games modes will be unlocked for all platforms - if the leaker is to be believed.

At the start of the PS4 beta the level cap will be level 10 and WILL NOT be increased until all 3 platforms are included.
The perk "Quick Fix" was taken out of the beta but will still be a perk within the perk 1 slot in the full game.
PS4 players who want to grind the early week of access seemingly won’t have to be concerned a level reset.
The YouTuber also stated that the progression will carry over into the second week. So, if you hit level 10, you’ll likely have a jump on everybody else you come across.
Once Xbox/PC get access to the beta too, on the 19th-20th the level cap will be increased to level 20. Once the 21st hits, the level cap will be increased to 30.— TheGamingRevolution (@TheGamingRevoYT) September 9, 2019
30 will be max level cap increase for the beta.
There will be playlist updates throughout the beta.
As for maps, there will apparently be 7-9 maps, with four coming in the form of the 2v2 Gunfight locations that players have already played.
According to his information, players can expect to play maps called Hackney Yard, Cave, Runner, Quarry - not the map from Modern Warfare 2, though - as well as Raid, which is a 10v10 map, and again, not the one from Black Ops 2.
The beta will feature 7-9 maps, 4 of those will be gunfight maps from the alpha, excluding one.— TheGamingRevolution (@TheGamingRevoYT) September 9, 2019
Main maps are: Hackney Yard, Cave, Runner, Quarry.
Then there's Raid (10v10 map).
20v20 will not be in the beta, just 10v10 & 32v32 added later. Aniyah Palace will NOT be in the beta.
Of course, none of this information has been confirmed and could very well change before players get their hands on the Modern Warfare beta on September 12.
While the YouTuber has been a reputable source of information in the past, it’s best to take everything with a pinch of salt until Infinity Ward themselves reveal what you’ll be able to play.
