Season 3 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 arrives on April 12, and Activision has released the seasonal trailer, revealing some of the new modes coming to multiplayer and battle royale.
As previously announced, Season 3’s story revolves around a face-off with Alejandro Vargas and Valeria Garza from the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. Both characters will also be playable operators for the season, who will likely be made available as either battle pass rewards or operator bundles in the in-game shop.
While Valeria and Alejandro are the main highlights, the trailer also announces a few new game modes. Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer will get Cranked and Gunfight. Cranked is the fast-paced mode that forces players to chain together kills to reset a timer and avoid exploding, and Gunfight is the chaotic 2v2 matchups played over a series of fast-paced rounds on small maps.
For Warzone 2, a little more variety is finally coming to battle royale in Season 3. The upcoming season will add a Resurgence respawn mode to Al Mazrah and the money-based Plunder mode from Warzone 1. The long-awaited Ranked playlist for Warzone 2 is also confirmed.
Season 3’s battle pass will also include the return of the iconic Intervention sniper rifle, which is rebranded for Modern Warfare 2 as the FJX Imperium sniper. Pelayo’s Lighthouse is a new 6v6 multiplayer map, which features a stormy night time setting.
Activision recently revealed the new tools for Call of Duty’s Ricochet anti-cheat, including the detection of third-party hardware devices meant to give players an unfair advantage.
