CoD: Warzone 2 And Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 Launch Trailer Highlights Ashika Island Map And More

Check out the official launch trailer for Season 2 of Warzone 2 And Modern Warfare 2.


Activision has released the official launch trailer for Season 2 of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. The second season adds a Japanese theme with the new Ashika Island map for battle royale and DMZ.

The Season 2 launch trailer shows brief moments of action on Warzone 2's new Ashika Island map. The Japanese-themed island is a smaller, secondary map designed for Warzone 2's Resurgence respawn modes and DMZ, and the map will have seven main points of interest.

In addition to Ashika Island, the Al Mazrah map is also getting a change to an existing point of interest. The trailer shows just a glimpse of the added crash site to the Caves location, which longtime fans might recognize as the crashed plane from the Afghan map in 2009's Modern Warfare 2. Al Mazrah's Caves already mimicked much of the design from the Afghan map, but the iconic crash site was previously missing from the area.

For another major battle royale change, the trailer shows off the scaled-back 1v1 Gulag for Al Mazrah, and players can expect the same familiar setting. Season 2's Gulag will remain in the same prison location as Season 1, but the size of the Gulag will be trimmed down to fit 1v1-style gameplay.

Season 2 will also introduce five weapons to multiplayer and battle royale. The ISO Hemlock assault rifle, KV Broadside shotgun, and Dual Kodachis melee weapon will be included in the free tiers of the new battle pass, while the crossbow and Tempus Torrent marksman rifle will be available for unlock through in-game challenges.

Season 2 arrives on February 15. For more, check out every major announcement for Season 2 of Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2, which includes the incoming DMZ wipe, Ranked Play for multiplayer, major battle royale changes, and more.
