With Season 2’s launch less than a week away, Call of Duty has revealed exactly what the new update will contain.
Activision Blizzard Guts Esports Division That Worked on Overwatch and Call of Duty
Activision Blizzard lets go of the majority of its esports division, which worked on productions like The Overwatch League and Call of Duty League.
Call of Duty‘s Season 2 update will add a refreshed version of the Fortune’s Keep map to Warzone, as well as a Ranked mode for the returning map. Warzone will also add the Eradication Contract, a weekly Zombie target, a squad wipe streak, Wonder Weapons, Zombie power ups, and a new public event. Later in Season 2, Warzone will add the PDS Field Upgrade, the Bunker Buster killstreak, and an additional POI to Fortune’s Keep known as the Research Vessel. As for Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer, Season 2 will add three 6v6 maps, a War mode map, and new game modes. Later in Season 2, Multiplayer will add Vanguard‘s Das Haus 6v6 map, re-skinned variants of Terminal and Skidrow, and additional game modes. As for Zombies, Season 2 will add a new story mission, dark aether rift, schematics, and warlord. However, all of the new Zombies features will arrive later in Season 2.
What’s Coming to Call of Duty with the Season 2 Update?
- Warzone’s Fortune’s Keep map
- Three 6v6 maps and a War map for Multiplayer
- Four new weapons
- Crossover event with The Walking Dead beginning on February 28th
- New Zombie features coming later in Season 2
Call of Duty‘s Season 2 will also add four new weapons in the BP50 AR, RAM-9 SMG, SOA Subverter BR, and Soulrender melee weapon. Fans might recognize the RAM-9 due to it being the SMG counterpart of the previously introduced RAM-7 AR. Additionally, the approaching update will add the Ninja Vest, which makes users’ footsteps silent while also giving them a bonus knife and throwing star ammo. Season 2 will also make an interesting adjustment to precision airstrikes in Warzone by showing the killstreak’s trajectory on targeted players’ minimaps.
During Season 2, fans can look forward to Call of Duty‘s crossover event with The Walking Dead, which launches on February 28. During the event, players can earn XP to unlock exclusive rewards. Season 2’s battle pass features The Walking Dead‘s Rick Grimes as one of its instantly unlockable skins, and fans can purchase The Walking Dead‘s Michonne from the in-game store beginning on February 8th. Season 2 will implement additional events throughout the next couple of months, such as Horde Hunt, Year of the Dragon, Cryptid Bootcamp, Vortex: Decay’s Realm, and Dune: Rule of Fate.
