Modern Warfare Season Two Revealed

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released on October 25, 2019. Since then, we’ve had some updates, and then the big Season One update. (First Details, Trailer, Battle Pass, Refresh, and Extension) Season One lasted for 2 months and a week. Season One brought new weapons, new maps, new modes, a fresh take on DLC content, that were released throughout the season event. It’s most likely going to be the same with Season Two. This morning, Activision and Infinity Ward released a new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trailer on their YouTube channel to show off Season Two…

That’s not all, the team at Activision and Infinity Ward posted a new blog post on their website(s) to hype up Season Two. I will post some excerpts to help you understand, from their mouths, what will transpire throughout Season Two…

Season Two of Modern Warfare returns Ghost to the firefight and brings more Multiplayer experiences through maps, modes, and an all-new Battle Pass. Plus earn rewards to climb through the Season Two Ranks with more ribbons to earn, new challenges to complete, and new missions for both Multiplayer and Special Ops. 

In Season Two, Al-Qatala agents have stolen a Soviet nuclear warhead and smuggled it into the city of Verdansk. Combined with previously obtained chemical gas, Al-Qatala is determined to cut off Verdansk from the rest of the world. On the brink of a global catastrophe, Captain Price sends in Ghost to track down the location of the warhead and lead key Operators before it’s too late.

Read on to get the intel on the Season Two content arriving on launch day and more dropping in throughout the Season. 

Battle on More Maps for Multiplayer

New battlegrounds arrive to Modern Warfare for classic Multiplayer, Ground War, and Gunfight game modes. Each map has its own distinct look and feel for a unique, tactical, and grounded gaming experience. 

Rust – Standard Multiplayer and Gunfight (Launch Day)

The classic map returns! A small map for fast-paced combat, Rust brings the battle to an oil yard in the middle of the desert. The site of the Modern Warfare 2 Campaign mission, “Endgame”, may be just that for players who don’t learn the tricks to master this arid field of play. Utilize the environment for cover and grab the high ground and low ground to take advantage of your enemies. 

Atlas Superstore – Standard Multiplayer (Launch Day)

Go shopping in Atlas Superstore, a new Multiplayer map that takes place in a supercenter warehouse that has been taken over by Al-Qatala forces. Battle in dense lanes of traffic, over fallen shelving, and throughout the shipping, receiving, and employee-only areas. Clean up on aisle six!  

Khandor Hideout – Standard Multiplayer (Mid-Season)

Zhokov Boneyard – Ground War (Launch Day)

A resting place for discarded airplane parts, Zhokov Boneyard is a Ground War map in Verdansk. Traipse through this airplane junk yard and avoid the turbulence of the enemy team while capturing your objectives. 

Bazaar – Gunfight (Launch Day)

A tightly contained cross-section of the streets of Urzikstan is turned into a battleground in Bazaar. Experience the tension-filled Gunfight while navigating a new zone of combat. The randomized Gunfight loadouts all have a chance to shine as the maps symmetrical layout offers opportunities for big moments and epic plays.

Gunfight Tournaments (Launch Day)

Demolition (Mid-Season)

Similar to Search and Destroy, this respawn mode pits two teams against each other with the objective of attacking or destroying bomb sites. The attacking team must destroy both bomb sites within the time limit to win the round. Decimating one bomb site adds to your time. Destroy, defend, and be mindful of explosives in Demolition.

Infected Ground War (Mid-Season)

An outbreak has occurred in Ground War. Join up with your fellow Survivors to hold off the Infected horde until the time expires. Infected players will have limited loadouts but increased movement abilities, so be wary of their crafty play. If you do get infected, attack with the horde to assault and takedown any remaining Survivors in a large-scale match of Infected. 

NVG Reinforce (Mid-Season)
