February 2, 2023: The start of the new season isn't far away! Scroll down for all the latest intel on MW2 Season Two.

Modern Warfare 2 Season Two is the second post-launch content drop for Infinity Ward's latest title. Although it's still a while before you drop into the next season, the rumour mill surrounding what's in store is starting to turn much to the excitement of Modern Warfare 2 fans.


Despite the lack of information, it's easy to estimate some of the content making its way into multiplayer. Just like the first season, a new battle pass will arrive in addition to new Operators, weapons, and more.

Before we take a closer look at what MW2 Season Two has in store, check out our guides showcasing the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifle and the latest intel about Modern Warfare 2 ranked play.

When does Modern Warfare 2 Season Two start?

At the time of writing, Activision hasn't confirmed an official start date for Season Two. However, the battle pass countdown timer gives you a rough indication as to when the next season begins.

Following a recent leak claiming the new season will have a new start date, Infinity Ward reveals MW2 Season Two will begin on February 15.

Modern Warfare 2 Season Two leaks

A WhatIfGaming report from notable Call of Duty leaker RalphsValve has already showcased the key artwork for Season Two. The images show the return of Ronin from 2019's Modern Warfare and two new Operators expected to launch during the season.


In addition to new Operators, the background confirms the Castle map from World at War and Vanguard is on its way to multiplayer.

Modern Warfare 2 Season Two battle pass

Just like Season One, Season Two will have a brand-new battle pass packed with new content. The new sector structure allows players to navigate the progression tree in an alternative way by earning battle pass tokens.

You can choose to spend the tokens on a number of different sectors. Fancy unlocking a cool weapon blueprint ahead of a double XP token? No problem.

Information on what the Season Two battle pass contains is unknown but once we hear more, you'll be the first to know what's up for grabs.

Modern Warfare 2 Hardcore mode

Instead of Hardcore arriving when Modern Warfare 2 launched, fans were left disappointed with the appearance of Tier 1. Infinity Ward has listened and reverted the change much to the delight of fans.

Modern Warfare 2 Season Two guns

Every season, Infinity Ward brings new additions to the ever-expanding arsenal of weaponry and Season Two is no different. Despite no information on the guns appearing in the upcoming season, we can attempt to predict which areas of the arsenal need some attention.

The arrival of a new marksman rifle would make sense as they've not managed to make a dent on the meta. A new LMG wouldn't go amiss either.


Despite our predictions, a recent leak reveals that the Crossbow is returning in Season Two alongside a new shotgun known as the VEPR-12. As always, take leaks with a pinch of salt until more official information emerges.

Modern Warfare 2 Season Two game modes

According to a recent data mine, a game mode logo containing two spanners suggests the popular Cranked mode is on its way to MW2 multiplayer.

As always, make sure you take leaks with a pinch of salt but considering the logo is already within the files of the game, there's a chance Cranked is coming in Season Two.

Is Ronin in Modern Warfare 2?

As mentioned above, the Season Two artwork seems to confirm Ronin is the main focus of the next Modern Warfare 2 seasonal update. With Raids arriving in Season One Reloaded, there's every chance he appears in the second Raid which is a continuation of the single-player campaign.


With Ronin the face of Season Two, there's a strong possibility the Operator is available within the battle pass.

That's everything we know about Modern Warfare 2 Season Two so far. Before you return to battle, check out our guides showcasing the best Modern Warfare 2 sniper rifle and all there is to know about the next Modern Warfare 2 double XP event.
