Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 2 Live: New Maps, Modes & Details
With Season 2 officially available, we’ll be able to experience new multiplayer maps, such as the classic 1v1 playground of Rust and the larger Atlas Superstore, alongside new maps for both Ground War and Gunfight. On top of that, new trials and multiplayer modes will be launching throughout the season.
Modern Warfare’s second season themes its additions around the fight against Al-Qatala, as it attempts to isolate the city of Verdansk using a stolen Soviet nuclear warhead. “On the brink of a global catastrophe,” explains Activision, “Captain Price sends in Ghost to track down the location of the warhead and lead key Operators before it’s too late.”

Here’s an early look before Season 2’s official release.
Unlock up to 100 Tiers of exciting new content and earn up to 1,300 Call of Duty Points, as well as instantly unlock Ghost, the legendary Special Forces Operator.
Season 2 features a brand-new Battle Pass with 100 Tiers of loot, as did the Season 1 Battle Pass. It will be available for purchase for 1,000 COD Points or 2,400 COD Points if you purchase the Battle Pass Bundle, which includes 20 Tier Skips.
Players who’ve completed the Season 1 Battle Pass have earned back 1,300 COD Points from its Tiers – meaning that as long as you level up your first Battle Pass, you’ll get the subsequent ones for free. This is also the case for the Season 2 Battle Pass, so be sure to complete your Season 2 Battle Pass for a free Season 3 Battle Pass!
New Operator: Ghost
Ghost, the iconic character from Modern Warfare 2, returns in Modern Warfare – reimagined and available instantly in Multiplayer with purchase of the Season 2 Battle Pass.
New Base Weapons
Included in the Season 2 Battle Pass are two new base weapons, available to all players via the Free Tiers. The exact Tiers for these weapons is not yet known at the time of writing, but in Season 1, the RAM-7 and Holger-26 were available at Tiers 31 and 15, respectively.
Lightweight, maneuverable, and full of potential.
Hard-hitting and long-range SMG.
Call of Duty Season 2 Maps
Four more maps are expected to be in Season 2. Atlas Superstore will join the standard rotation, while Gunfight map Bazaar, and Ground War map Zhokov Boneyard will join their respective playlists.
Arguably one of the best maps in Call of Duty history, Rust, makes its return in Modern Warfare Season 2. Hopefully, Rust receives a complete reimagined map design, like the recently released Shipment.
As a reimagining of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign map, Zhokov Boneyard looks to be returning as the new battleground for popular game mode Ground War.
If you’ve played the Modern Warfare campaign, you’ll recognize Bazaar as the Hometown of freedom fighter Farah. It also looks as though Bazaar will be the new map for Gunfight.
Located in the city of Verdansk, Atlas Superstore can also be seen in the Modern Warfare Spec Ops mission: Operation Paladin.
