Here's everything we know about Modern Warfare 2 Season 1, including pre-season content, raids, Spec Ops, and what to expect from Season 1 Reloaded

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 release date

Looking for news on the MW2 Season 1 release date and what it contains? By now, you’re already knee-deep in Modern Warfare 2, but if you’re wondering exactly what the deal is with the first season of content for the FPS game, we’ve got your back.

When did the first Modern Warfare 2 season start? The MW2 Season 1 release date was November 16. It arrived alongside Warzone 2, also bringing the highly anticipated DMZ mode with it. The first season brought with it a fan-favourite Modern Warfare 2 map, and players can progress through the battle pass for two free weapons, while Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition owners can unlock the seasonal battle pass with 50 tier skips.

Modern Warfare 2 season 1 new maps

With season 1 of MW2 comes the return of a fan-favourite map; Shoot House. A live-fire training area converted into a bloodbath for the multiplayer shooter, Shoot House is a classic for a reason and is a great arena for leveling up your guns.

Modern Warfare 2 pre-season dates

The pre-season of Modern Warfare 2 ran from its launch on October 28, until the Season 1 release on November 16.

Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops and Raids

This two-player co-op experience is an extension of the campaign and a refined version of the 2019 Spec Ops mode. Three Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops missions are available at the start of the first season.

Around halfway through the first season, when Season 1 Reloaded begins, Raids are coming to Modern Warfare 2 too. This is a new type of mode described in a Call of Duty blog post as “a three-player cooperative experience requiring teamwork and strategic, puzzle-solving thinking in-between bouts of intense combat.”
