Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 Season 1 is finally here with an unexpected twist. Here’s everything you need to know about upgrading the game’s Battle Pass.

Modern Warfare 2 didn’t shy away from flipping the traditional CoD formula. Receivers change the way players unlock weapons and attachments, forcing the use of weapons players may not even have touched in previous series entries.

Perks also got an overhaul in MW2, introducing base, bonus, and ultimate perks. Not to mention that the developers added a third-person game mode.

Despite the backlash, Infinity Ward is once again throwing caution to the wind, altering the traditional Battle Pass system. Now let’s see how to progress in each level.

How Modern Warfare 2’s Battle Pass Works


Modern Warfare 2’s new Battle Pass system is based on a multi-sector map.

Fans of Battle Royale games will be familiar with how Battle Passes work. Usually players progress from left to right, earning new items along the way. However, in Modern Warfare 2, your Battle Pass is a multi-sector map.

Gone are the days of reaching the highest level of a Battle Pass to earn an item you were most looking forward to.

MW2 lets you dictate your own path to complete everything. Players unlock Battle Token Level Skips and can use them as they please.

We don’t yet know the details of Warzone 2’s Battle Pass.

In Warzone 2 Season 1, each map has at least 20 sectors, with five elements in each sector. Activision said in their latest blog, “Tokens can be used to unlock adjacent sectors or earn more items in an unlocked sector.”

For example, if there is a specific operator skin or weapon you want to unlock first, you can use a token on it first before unlocking other items.

Regarding the reasoning behind the change to MW2’s Battle Pass, the developers claimed, “Essentially, these tokens can be used to unlock specific items in the Battle Pass at your own pace.”

We’ll provide an update when we know more about what’s included in the Season 1 Battle Pass.
