Face Off is a playlist in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and was also added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare after launch and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in December 2020.

Modern Warfare 3

The playlist involves either two players versus two players, one versus one on small tight maps or three players versus three players. The mode itself is very similar to Cage Match in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Face Off is available to play on split-screen, private, and public matches. There are seven maps for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. It was never added to the Wii version. 

A Hardcore variant also exists.

Modern Warfare (2019)

A similar mode called Gunfight was introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Unlike Face Off, this mode focuses primarily on one life matches with unique mechanics from standard multiplayer. Gunfight maps are also compatible with standard 6v6 multiplayer modes, and Face Off style matches can be created in Private Matches. Occasionally, a limited time  Face Off playlist is available, which features 3v3 respawn modes similar to the original gametype.

Black Ops Cold War

A Face Off playlist was added to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in December 2020. The playlist allows players to play 3v3 Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed and Hardpoint matches on the game's Gunfight maps. Scorestreaks are disabled and in Domination capture times are quicker, and time limits and score limits are shorter. A Hardcore variant is also available.

Trivia

  • In Modern Warfare 3, Search and Destroy game mode was trialed for one weekend, then Team Defender the next, and Capture the Flag after that. Domination was trialed for two weeks from the weekend after Capture the Flag. On 7 November 2012, Domination and Search and Destroy returned to Face Off and have since remained.
  • In Modern Warfare 3, Even though the maps are designed for 1v1's, 2v2's, and 3v3's, playing in Private Match allows them to be played in 6v6 games in a variety of different game modes.
  • In Modern Warfare 3, Playing the maps in Private Match on Infected allows up to 18 players.
