MWIII Content Drop: Season 2 Reloaded

Season 2 Reloaded Arrives in Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® III

On the heels of the massive Season 2 content drop, the mid-season update is nearly here and bringing even more opportunities for mayhem and destruction. Compete in a compact and chaotic 6v6 Multiplayer map, explore overgrown and unsettling map variants, and get ready for Bounty and Juggermosh game modes. Take on the next Zombies story mission, Dark Aether Rift, and Warlord; and explore the new mobile Point of Interest and more in Fortune’s Keep.

Unlock two new weapons, new Aftermarket Parts, plus new seasonal events and challenges. There’s plenty more to experience in this colossal season of content.

The Season 2 Reloaded mid-season update launches on March 6 at 9 AM PT. You’ve come to the right place: Check the Call of Duty Blog for all official comms and announcements.

Here’s what’s on the way:




  • New (Remastered) 6v6 Multiplayer Map. Revisit Das Haus in a whole new location as the setting moves from a training facility to the top of a skyscraper.
  • Introducing Bounty, Juggermosh. Eliminate the HVT in Bounty for extra points, and battle as a Space Marine inspired Juggernaut in the Juggermosh limited-time mode.
  • Vortex: Decay’s Realm. Redeploy to the Vortex with an expanded map pool featuring the new map variants Skidgrow and Airborne.

New (Remastered) 6v6 Map: Das Haus

Das Haus (6v6)


Players first deployed to Das Haus in the form of a training facility in Call of Duty®: Vanguard, battling nonstop in the map’s tight confines. For Season 2 Reloaded, the iconic and compact map returns in Modern Warfare III, now reimagined and situated on the top of a skyscraper in the vicinity of Highrise. In fact, that map can be spotted in the distance from one of the spawn points. The layout is just as chaotic as you remember it, rewarding Operators who stay on the offensive and don’t let up.

New Playlist and Map Variants: Vortex — Decay’s Realm [Limited-Time Mode]


The eldritch realms within the Vortex expand with the addition of Airborne and Skidgrow alongside Tetanus, Sporeyard, and Satan’s Quarry. Drop into the Vortex: Decay’s Realm Playlist to compete on the new map variants across Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Hardpoint.

Look for the Vortex: Decay’s Realm in-game Event arriving later in the mid-season and detailed under “New Weekly Challenges and Events” near the end of this article.



You might want to skip your afternoon meal at Burger Town this visit as Terminal falls victim to an alien infestation covering the environment in a putrid green growth. Locusts swarm overhead and a heavy fog blankets the outer apron; if you think that’s bad, just wait until you board the plane. Secure your victory then evacuate ASAP… until it’s time to return for the next fight.



The flora has taken over as Skidrow becomes the site of massive overgrowth, as if the population vanished letting nature take its inevitable toll. Ivy hangs down the sides of the buildings and creeps along abandoned vehicles, even breaking into the interior spaces of the map. Weeds and grass push up through the crumbled concrete. At this rate, the once urban center will soon resemble a jungle. Fight on to ensure that you’re the king of it.

New Modes: Bounty, Juggermosh



Face off against the enemy in a Team Deathmatch–style game mode where players have unlimited lives and the first team to reach the elimination-based score limit wins. In Bounty, however, the biggest slayer on each team will be designated as an HVT (high-value target). The HVT on each team carries a flag and is highlighted for all to see and awards extra points when eliminated.



Prepare for heavy combat as players slug it out as imposing Juggernauts clad in Space Marines skins inspired by the Warhammer 40,000 universe, fully viewable in third-person perspective for the entire match, occurring across Kill Confirmed and Domination modes.

When a match begins, you drop in as an Ultramarines inspired Juggernaut clad in “Ultramar’s Vengeance” Power Armor or a Blood Angels Space Marine encased in “Baal’s Wrath” Power Armor. This armor skin offers the same capabilities as a Juggernaut Recon Killstreak, and every player comes equipped in these ornate and advanced protective suits.

You’re here to battle for possession of the OHK (one-hit kill) melee weapon — a flesh-tearing Chainsword! — in the center of the map. Grab armor from fallen enemies to patch back up and aim for the head to inflict even greater increased damage. In this mode, all players will display a health bar over their heads so you can better coordinate with your teammates to focus fire on the weakest link in the fight.

Use heights to your advantage. These massive suits not only prevent fall damage but also release an area-of-effect stun and damage effect on foes when landing from a high enough drop, a great way to initiate fights. You’ll need every advantage, too, as only air support Killstreaks are allowed, meaning it’s solely up to you to inflict damage on your opponent using an array of mode-specific armaments, Perks, and reduced melee damage.


Fight for the Imperium — Deploy in armor inspired by the 41st millennium: The fearsome Space Marines of the Warhammer 40,000 universe are ideally suited to stand toe-to-toe with multiple Juggernauts! Players who purchase the Tracer Pack: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marines Bundle will receive the “Ultramar’s Vengeance” Ultramarines and “Baal’s Wrath” Blood Angels Space Marine Juggernaut Recon Killstreak Skins permanently, as part of the offering.

Though anyone entering the limited-time Juggermosh game mode brings Power Armor inspired by the 41st Millennium into the fray, only players purchasing the Bundle will receive these Killstreak Skins permanently, after the Juggermosh mode concludes.

Note! The two Space Marine Power Armor variants mentioned above are not Operator Skins, allowing you to change the Skin of the Juggernaut Recon Killstreak only: The “Ultramarine Scout” and “Blood Angels Scout” Skins are the Operator Skins contained within the Tracer Pack: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marines Bundle. See later into this blog post for further details.




  • New Story Mission. Continue your journey alongside Sergei Ravenov as you’re pulled back into the Dark Aether while investigating a new anomaly, presenting terrifying and exciting challenges you haven’t encountered before.
  • Dark Aether Rift. Squad up and conquer the Dark Aether once more in an all-new Dark Aether Rift, earning new and powerful rewards.
  • Battle Warlord Keres. A new Warlord enters the Exclusion Zone, a chemical warfare specialist who’s willing to use any means necessary to choke out opposing Operators.
  • New Schematics. Fire and keep on firing with the Mags of Holding. Summon an otherworldly two-wheeler with the Blood Burner Key. Expand your squad with the V-R11 Wonder Weapon.

New Story Mission, Dark Aether Rift


The story continues for Operation Deadbolt in Season 2 Reloaded. The Dark Aether is closing in again and bringing new enemies with it. Confront the anomaly and enter the Dark Aether once more. . . .

Operation Deadbolt is tasked with investigating a new anomaly in the next Modern Warfare Zombies Story Mission. Terminus Outcomes is becoming bolder and has followed your squad into the Dark Aether. Lean on your expert guide, Sergei Ravenov, to assess the situation, defeat the mercenaries, and survive the Dark Aether.


After completing the new Story Mission, a fresh Dark Aether Rift experience awaits. . . . Keep your eyes open, follow the cryptic clues, and complete timed tasks to unlock access to the Rift Gate. Once inside, complete challenges and survive to earn coveted rewards, like the Blood Burner Key and more.

New Warlord: Keres


A deadly and elusive chemical warfare specialist, Keres is set to challenge even the most prepared squads. Those brave enough to face her will find her in the Killhouse at Orlov Military Base. Come prepared and approach with extreme caution: Expect her fortress to be well-defended by soldiers, snipers, turrets, traps, and poison gas grenades. Gas masks are highly recommended.

Breaching the fortress is only the first hurdle. Inside, a new gas compound spread throughout the facility disrupts multiple sensors and thermal weapon scopes. Once it’s time to face Keres, be ready to engage not only against her Loadout of ballistic weapons but also her signature poisonous smokescreen and other bioweapons.

New Schematics


Mags of Holding: Skip the reload and pull ammo directly from your weapon’s ammo stash, so you can keep pumping out damage without needing to stop and fill up again.

Blood Burner Key: Need a sick ride? Look no further. With the Blood Burner Key, you can summon this two-wheeler Wonder Vehicle at will. Cruise in style with this nearly indestructible bike that can move across water and is fueled by the blood of zombies you flatten under its tires. Surrounded? Activate the bike’s Aether Pulse ability to blast enemies in near proximity.

V-R11 Wonder Weapon: In battle, every ally counts. Bolster your numbers using the V-R11 Wonder Weapon, capable of transforming zombies into friendly mercenaries and mercenaries into friendly zombies. Squadmate getting swarmed? You can also target allies with the V-R11, providing them temporary immunity from zombie aggression.




  • Research Vessel Mobile POI. Board the Research Vessel on Fortune’s Keep, a new mobile POI circling the island’s shoreline.
  • New Killstreak: Clear out buildings of entrenched enemies with this aerial attack that decimates anyone within the targeted location.
  • New Field Upgrade: Create a safe zone in the gas with the Portable Decontamination Station, protecting any Operators within its area of effect.

New POI, Killstreak, and Field Upgrade


Research Vessel (Mobile Point of Interest)

Reports of a pontoon-style watercraft off the coast of Fortune’s Keep have been confirmed as the ship arrives offshore in the mid-season update. Climb aboard once you spot it, because this mobile POI stays on the move throughout the first two minutes of a match, before dropping anchor in one of a few predetermined locations.

Keep your eyes out for enemy Operators who are also exploring the vessel; the ship features multiple levels as well as its own helipad and Ascenders, so danger can appear at any moment even if it appears safe on first boarding. Once you’re on the Research Vessel, it’s usually a great idea to commandeer the craft and utilize the equipment on board. You can:

  • Access a decontamination station that works like the PDS (see below).
  • Watch for enemies after activating the UAV tower.
  • Purchase unique and exclusive items from the special Buy Station.
  • Toot the vessel’s horn to prove you’ve stormed the ship, and if you’d like more enemy interest in your current whereabouts.
  • Pilot the helicopter (or another chopper) onto the helipad.
  • Investigate the [[REDACTED]] and unlock the loot-filled [[REDACTED]].

New Killstreak — Bunker Buster


Pinned down by enemy snipers holed up in the building across the street? Instead of charging them head-on and wishing for the best, pull out your binoculars and target the building with the new Bunker Buster Killstreak. Once this is activated, watch your enemies bite the dust as a missile drops down on the building, sending an explosive blast through multiple floors and leaving a column of gas in its wake.

New Field Upgrade — Portable Decontamination Station


Clear away the gas using the new Portable Decontamination Station (PDS) Field Upgrade. With this item, you decide when it’s time to move. Emitting a cloud of chemicals that counteracts the corrosive effects of the circle gas, a temporary safe zone is created for all Operators within its area of effect, though it’s also available on the Tac Map for all Operators to see. Note that the duration of this Field Upgrade shortens after the sixth circle of gas.

Looking for mobile gas protection? Attach the PDS to your vehicle and clear the way. The Field Upgrade can also be deployed in the water and near a Buy Station to reactivate it.




  • Two New Weapons. Slice up the competition with the Soulrender Melee weapon and dominate the mid-range with the SOA Subverter Battle Rifle.
  • New Store Offerings. In the grim of darkness of the far future, there is only war! Warhammer 40,000 storms into the Store in Season 2 alongside Godzilla x Kong and a new Dune Bundle.
  • New Weekly Challenges, Events. Amass awesome rewards through completing new Weekly Challenges and Events going live in the mid-season.

Two New Weapons

Soulrender (Melee, Classified Sector)


A ceremonial blade capable of razor-sharp cuts and deadly melee action in close-quarters combat.

Cut your enemies down to size with this vicious blade capable of rapid slicing for quick takedowns. The Soulrender offers rapid slashing attacks via the Aim button alongside its heavier primary attack; hold the Fire button to prepare the heavy slash and release in time to down your foe with a devastating hit. Combo the two attack styles together for maximum damage.

The Soulrender introduces the new Omnigenesis Weapon Camo, accessible by completing a Soulrender-specific in-game challenge.

How to Unlock the Base Weapon: Via a set of challenges within the new mid-season Sector in the Season 2 Battle Pass.

SOA Subverter (Battle Rifle)


Chambered in 7.62, this hard-hitting rifle dominates at mid to longer ranges thanks to a low rate of fire and predictable recoil.

With an effective damage range up to 25 meters and the highest rate of fire within its class, the SOA Subverter is well worth considering as your new main weapon. Its steady upward recoil is easily manageable for staying on target through sustained fire, combined with a solid damage output that downs most enemies in three to four shots before factoring in Armor Plates.

The SOA Subverter introduces three new Weapon Camos: Fjord, Tidepool, and Dopamine, accessible by completing SOA Subverter-specific in-game challenges.

How to Unlock the Base Weapon: Complete via Weekly Challenge.

New Store Offerings: Warhammer 40,000, Godzilla x Kong, Dune

Season 2 sees the arrival of the three Warhammer 40,000 Store Bundles, featuring Operators inspired by the Space Marines, the Sisters of Battle, and the Astra Militarum. Get downright monstrous with the new Godzilla x Kong Bundle, and don the mantle of House Harkonnen in a new Dune: Part Two Bundle.

Warhammer 40,000 Bundles


In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. Humanity stands alone, beset on all sides by the heretic, the mutant, and the alien.

The defenders of the galaxy-spanning Imperium have arrived as part of the mid-season update across three Warhammer 40,000 Bundles. Crush your enemies in armor inspired by the 10th Company of the Ultramarines or Blood Angels, rush into the thick of combat adorned like a Sister of Battle, or fight in the regalia of an elite Cadian Kasrkin.

Find out more about the Warhammer 40,000 game and setting here.

Tracer Pack: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marines


Show your loyalty to your Chapter and the Emperor and adorn yourself like an Angel of Death. This Bundle features two Operator Skins: the “Ultramarines Scout” Skin inspired by the armor of the Ultramarines 10th company, and the “Blood Angels Scout” Skin inspired by the armor of the Blood Angels 10th Company.

In addition, bring havoc to the limited-time Juggermosh Multiplayer Mode! In this mode, any player, whether purchasing this Bundle or not, dons the “Ultramar’s Vengeance” Ultramarines and “Baal’s Wrath” Blood Angels Space Marine Power Armor, which are not Operator Skins, but variant Skins of the Juggernaut Recon Killstreak. However, only owners of this Bundle can equip either Power Armor Skin as a Killstreak variant after the Juggermosh limited-time mode concludes!

In addition, equip the “Ultramarines” and “Blood Angels” Weapon Charms, and head into battle with “The Flesh Tearer” and “The Teeth of Terra” Melee Weapons based off the iconic Chainsword. Lead your allies to victory with the emblazoned “Aegis Imperialis” Riot Shield Blueprint. Or just finish them in one fell swoop with the “Evisceration” Finishing Move.

When fighting from afar, take control with the choice of three Weapon Blueprints featuring Warhammer Tracers and Gorehammer Dismemberment: The “Angel’s Fury” and “Courage and Honour” Battle Rifle Blueprints and the “Contempt” Shotgun Blueprint.

Tracer Pack: Warhammer 40,000 Sisters of Battle


There is only war. Join the fight with furious zeal by equipping the “Battle Sister” Operator Skin, and decimate your foes with the “Heretic’s Bane” LMG Weapon Blueprint and “Emperor’s Fury” Assault Rifle Weapon Blueprint, both featuring Warhammer Tracers and Gorehammer Dismemberment, including an Aftermarket Part on the Holger 556.

Spread the light of the God-Emperor by displaying the “Imperium Aquila” Weapon Charm, the “Valorous Heart” Emblem, the “Daughters of the Emperor” Loading Screen, the “Adepta Sororitas” Large Decal, and the “Adeptus Ministorum” Sticker.

Tracer Pack: Warhammer 40,000 Astra Militarum


Defend humanity from the horrors of the 41st millennium and deploy with the “Cadian Kasrkin” Operator Skin, an elite trooper of the Imperial Guard. Slice through your enemies with the “Munitorum Issue Blade” Melee Weapon Blueprint and wield Lasgun-inspired weapons with the “Hammer of the Emperor” Assault Rifle Blueprint and the “Born Soldier” Marksman Rifle Blueprint, both featuring Lasrifle Tracers and Gorehammer Dismemberment. Or you can always tear them apart with the “Tactical Pet: Servo-Skull” Finishing Move.

Wear your insignia with pride by equipping the “Astra Militarum” Emblem, the “Sacred Rosarius” Weapon Charm, the “Warstorm” Loading Screen, the “Cadia Stands” Calling Card, and the “War’s Decree” Large Decal.

Be sure to arrive in your battle armor ready for the Warhammer 40,000: For the Emperor! Event (see below), which runs from March 13 to March 27.

Tracer Pack: Godzilla x Kong: New Empire — Kong


Embrace your inner beast with the savage “Kong Armor” Operator Skin, featuring a high-tech, heavily armored suit and Kong-inspired helmet.

Unleash primal fury with the “Titan Tech Rifle” LMG, a Weapon Blueprint that goes the distance with improved damage range and bullet velocity. For closer fights, swap to the “Monarch Stinger” Assault Rifle Weapon Blueprint, designed with heightened mobility, including improved sprint speed, Aim Down Sight (ADS) speed, and Sprint to Fire speed. Both Weapon Blueprints feature B.E.A.S.T. Tracers.

Obliterate enemies from behind using the “Kong’s Knuckle Slamwich” Finishing Move and show off your bestial nature with the “Bow to No-One” Large Decal and the “King Kong” Weapon Charm.

Tracer Pack: Dune Part Two — Harkonnen Pack


“No Atreides shall live.” — Baron Vladimir Harkonnen

Deploy as the enemy of House Atreides with the “Harkonnen Hunter” Operator Skin, covered from head to toe in state-of-the-art armor capable of withstanding even the most severe weather conditions.

Overwhelm your foes with two Weapon Blueprints featuring Spice Tracers: the “Harkonnen” Assault Rifle features an underbarrel flamethrower for extra-crispy eliminations, while the “Harkonnen” Sniper Rifle offers a highly mobile long-distance option with Attachments catered toward Sprint to Fire speed, ADS speed, and movement speed. For dispatching enemies up close, deploy with the ”Harkonnen Long Sword” Melee weapon based off the new mid-season Soulrender.

So that no one mistakes you as one of the good guys, equip “The Oppressors” animated Calling Card, the “Harkonnen Rage” Large Decal, the “Baron’s Pet” Weapon Charm, and the “House Harkonnen” animated Emblem.

Bonus: Purchase both Bundles in the Dune Part Two collection — this one plus the Tracer Pack: Dune Part Two — Paul Atreides Operator Bundle — to unlock the “Paul Atreides Fedaykin Stealth Suit” Operator Skin.

Dune: Part Two is now in theaters.
