Call of Duty fans, get ready as the wait for new content is almost over. Activision is set to release Season 3 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 on April 12. The seasonal trailer has been released, and it reveals some of the new modes coming to the multiplayer and battle royale components of the game. If you’re wondering what to expect, keep reading.
Season 3’s story revolves around a face-off with Alejandro Vargas and Valeria Garza from the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, both of whom will be playable operators this season. The characters will likely become available as either battle pass rewards or operator bundles in the in-game shop. While the new storyline is exciting, it is not the only thing that is new for the season.
New Multiplayer Modes
Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer will get two new modes. The first is Cranked, a fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled mode that forces players to chain together kills to reset a timer and avoid exploding. The second is Gunfight, a chaotic 2v2 matchup played over a series of fast-paced rounds on small maps.
New Battle Royale Modes
The upcoming season will add a Resurgence respawn mode to Al Mazrah and the money-based Plunder mode from Warzone 1. Activision has also confirmed that the long-awaited Ranked playlist for Warzone 2 is finally happening. These additions bring some much-needed variety to the game’s battle royale experience.
New Maps and Weapons
The new season’s battle pass will also feature some exciting additions. Fans of the iconic Intervention sniper rifle will be pleased to know that it is making a comeback. However, it will be rebranded for Modern Warfare 2 as the FJX Imperium sniper. Pelayo’s Lighthouse, a new 6v6 multiplayer map, is another addition that features a stormy nighttime setting.
Activision recently revealed the new tools for Call of Duty’s Ricochet anti-cheat system, which includes the detection of third-party hardware devices meant to give players an unfair advantage. With this system, players can expect a more level playing field, making their gaming experience more enjoyable.
If you’re a fan of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, you definitely don’t want to miss out on Season 3. With the new story content, multiplayer modes, battle royale modes, and anti-cheat system, there is a lot to look forward to. It’s time to gear up and get ready for the action-filled season that is about to begin. Are you ready?
