What we want to see in Modern Warfare 2 Season Three

A meta overhaul

Despite seasonal updates containing numerous buffs and nerfs affecting the majority of the weapon arsenal, the meta in multiplayer remains the same with the best guns dominating matches with ease.

Rather than applying nerfs to weapons that aren't popular, implement adjustments that have the ability to spark change in the meta in order to increase weapon variety.

Better anti-cheat

The sheer number of hackers in ranked is far from ideal. When it comes to a mode where an even playing field is hugely important, letting hackers slip through the net isn't a good look.

The team behind Ricochet anti-cheat hasn't provided an update since October 2022 and with hackers also causing chaos in Warzone 2, it's time for Infinity Ward and Ricochet to step up their game and stop hackers from ruining a feature that injected plenty of fresh air into Modern Warfare 2.

There you have it, that's all there is to know about Modern Warfare 2 Season Three so far. For more, check out our guides showcasing the best sniper rifle and the best ranked play loadouts for competitive action.
