Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 2 has a lot of hype and anticipation surrounding it. The excitement went through the roof when a massive leak emerged on February 7 which was later accompanied by a leaked trailer for Season 2.
This leak originated directly from the Call of Duty official website. It contained information that was unseen regarding the upcoming season and was accompanied by images. These details and images were taken down immediately.
The leak included a glimpse of the seminal Ghost character as a new operator skin. This glimpse also showed the addition of two new guns, details on the new Battle Pass, weapon blueprints and more.
The new weapons that the leak revealed seem to be the GRAU 5.56 assault rifle and the Striker 45 SMG. An image of these two guns gave us a brief description of the weapons. The GRAU 5.56 was labeled as ” lightweight and maneuverable” whereas the Strike 45 SMG was called a “hard-hitting and long-range SMG”. This release pattern seems similar to Season 1 with the release of the Holger 26 and the RAM-7.
Battle Pass Details
The leak also contained some information about the upcoming Battle Pass. The content of Season 2 will have 100 tiers. Some of that will be free while you are required to buy the Battle Pass for 1000 CoD Points to get your hands on the rest of the content. You can supposedly purchase the Pass with 20tier skips for 2400 CoD Points.
Ghost, weapon blueprints, Operator skins and more
It seems that the iconic character of Ghost from Moder Warfare 2 will be making a return as an Operator. The leak suggested that he will be instantly available after you buy the Battle Pass.
The Season 2 Battle Pass also showcased various Operator skins and weapon blueprints. Epic, Rare and Legendary versions of these cosmetics will be available.
The leak also revealed that 80 additional items such as Watches, XP Tokens and more will be available. Players can obtain these items “just by playing”.
This information seems to be authentic considering that it came from the official website. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 2 is set to release on February 2 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Although the previous details were leaked by Activision, Xbox Live did not disappoint and seemingly leaked a gameplay trailer for the upcoming season. The trailer leaked via an official Activision account and features four new maps which are:
- Atlas Superstore
- Zhokov Boneyard
Rust is the re-imagining of the original map from Modern Warfare 2. Both Rust and Atlas Superstore will have regular combat modes like Team Deathmatch and Domination. The Bazaar map will have the Gunfight mode and Zhokov Boneyard is the latest Groud War map.
The addition of two new guns along with these maps will surely give players an incentive to try out the new update. We heard rumors that the Battle Royale mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare would be coming this year but news of it is yet to come. These new goodies ought to be enough to keep the players occupied until the Battle Royale mode comes out.
