Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is lit. From rap superstar Meek Mill to NBA baller JR Smith, everybody is on the video game juggernaut’s wave. The Season 2 Battle Pass has just dropped with all sorts of amazing new features. From free and premium tiers up for grabs, here’s five reasons the latest season is a must-experience.
Reason 1 – There’s new tiers.
A new Season Battle Pass means 100 new tiers, including two unseen weapons. Coming free with the pass, players who reach tiers 15 and 31 will unlock the Grau 5.56 and Striker 45, respectively. For those who invest, they can look forward to new weapon blueprints, watches, XP tokens, Operator skins, and more.
Reason 2 – You get to bring back a legendary character.
Those who purchase the Battle Pass receive the classic Simon “Ghost” Riley Operator, bringing back lots of nostalgia from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It’s also worth noting that the beloved map Rust from the same title is making a return in standard multiplayer and Gunfight game modes. Several new maps will appear as well, including Atlas Superstore, Khandor Hideout, Zhokov Boneyard, and Bazaar.
Reason 3 – It features new and returning game modes.
There will be plenty of new action to partake in, including some brand new and returning game modes. These include Gunfight Tournaments, Demolition, Infected Ground War, and NVG Reinforce. New trials are also available, including Quad Race, Fire in the Hole, Price’s Alley, and Behind Enemy Lines. These solo missions allow for some individual grind time while also earning XP!
Reason 4 – The Pass is cheap.
Regardless of whether or not you’re a competitor gamer, the Season 2 Battle Pass is affordable. It costs just 1,000 CoD points (or $10), but for those who don’t want to grind in-game, individual tiers can be bought for $1.50 each. However, look at it this way: if you grind long enough and save the 1,300 CoD points that are achievable with the pass, Season 3 can be free.
Reason 5 – A new and hidden section on the home screen.
After purchasing the Battle Pass and returning to the game’s home screen, you’ll notice a “Classified” section. The biggest hint as to what this pertains to comes in the opening cutscene that you see upon first opening up Season 2. After taking down an enemy, the line “Gas is closing in, we need to exfil now.” The following scene zooms out to show a plethora of separate battles taking place. Where else does this happen? In battle royales, like Fortnite. For now though, we can only speculate…
