The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta is out on all platforms this weekend, and people are having a lot of fun with the game. It comes with a wide variety of game modes and weapons for fans to enjoy and get a taste before the main game drops.

Unfortunately, there have been a few bug occurrences that have become pesky problems. One such issue is where the game refuses to detect any controllers even though it is plugged in properly. This guide talks about that problem and teaches you how to fix the controller not detected in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.

How to Fix Controller not Detected in Call of Duty MW2?

This is a very common yet, easy-to-fix issue that can happen with pretty much any controller be it a Dualsense or Xbox Series X/S controller. Players have reported that their controller simply doesn’t work inside the game and they cannot even see the controller menu inputs.
