Without knowing you join a hacked MW2 server and in there you get lasers on your guns, see players in a red box, etc.
It is all coming from the server (!). It will change your map size and show the names of your classes in colours.
When you leave the server all turns back to normal, except the map size, the coloured names and your screen resolution.
This can be very annoying. How do you get the original settings back ?
On your PC go to:
C:|Program Files (x86)|Steam|steamapps|common|call of duty modern warfare 2|players
Delete the config_mp file (cfg file) and right click on the game in Steam, go to properties local files and verify integrity of cache.
You will get a new clean cfg file.
You can also use this Modern Warfare 2 Configuration Utility v9.2
Changing settings in the config file will not get you banned. The game will automatically overwrite any setting it doesn't want you to change.
