You can change your game filter settings to always queue into Team Deathmatch in Modern Warfare 2.
You can edit your Quick Play filters to queue into a limited selection of game modes instead of the full playlist.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has over a dozen game modes and it can be difficult to queue into the modes you want to play due to the overcomplicated user interface (UI). The UI which was heavily criticized at launch is being worked on but until then, we have to deal with it to get to play our favorite game modes. Team Deathmatch is one of the game modes available in Modern Warfare 2 and here is how you can guarantee that you always queue into the game mode.

Modern Warfare 2 has a game mode filter system that you can use to select the modes you want to play. If you have multiple options selected, the matchmaker will choose one of the modes randomly. Here is how you can queue into Team Deathmatch every single time:

  5. Leave Team Deathmatch selected and deselect all other game modes
