We've just been given the first details concerning Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2's first Season, and as well as new weapons, new maps, and new operators, we're also getting the Season 1 Battle Pass. However, they're changing the way the battle passes work in Call of Duty, and we think most fans will like the new system. Here's what they've changed and how it works.

Note: The new Battle Pass is shared between Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2, and Warzone Mobile, so you can grind your way through no matter which CoD you're playing at the time.

How The New Battle Pass Works

Rather than unlocking items in a linear pattern from the first to the hundredth, you will now get "Battle Pass Tokens" with every level, and you can use these tokens to unlock items you want. It's not quite as simple as just picking exactly what you want as soon as you get a new token, however.


There will be 20 "sectors" to the Battle Pass (think of it like a skill-tree), and each Sector will have five different rewards within it. You use your tokens to unlock a sector, and then you can begin levelling up that sector by spending up to five more Battle Pass Tokens. Doing so will give you every reward within that sector.

This way you will never have to level more than 5 levels in the Battle Pass before getting to any particular item you want. It's not a massive change, and if you used to get to 100 each season then your experience won't really change. But for more players with less time to play, it's a big win and should allow them to still get the best items each season.

Are you going to be getting the Season 1 Battle Pass? Maybe you're going to go all out and get the new game as well? If so, here's a link to buy MW2 and here's a tier-ranking of every weapon from the game. So you can get all the meta loadouts ready for Warzone 2.
