I have a 2011 RT AWD and under medium to hard acceleration a weird metal like rattling noise starts happening when I get above 2000 rpm. Any help would be appreciated as to what it is.

The sound is very hard to hear in your video. Can you reproduce it in the driveway? Once it starts, does it change when you turn?

It certainly could be the beginning of the water pumps demise. You can check it easily, by removing the serp belt, and feeling for up/down or in/out play in the WP snout. Could also be an idler or tensioner pulley. You can check those as well while the belt is off.
