What is Infected in Call of Duty?

The game starts with all players being survivors. After a certain amount of time, one player will be chosen as the infected. This player will now only have a melee weapon, but gain a movement speed boost.

The aim of the game in Modern Warfare 2 will be for the infected to convert all survivors to their cause, by killing them. This can be challenging, as survivors will have guns, but once a few players are infected the survivors can be quickly overwhelmed.

The mode is a fan favourite as it retains a very casual feel, much like gun-game, and is great to hop on for a quick match.
