Modern Warfare’s Battle Pass
The battle pass system takes heavy inspiration from Fortnite’s business model. For $10, the battle pass offers in-game cosmetic items over 100 levels, which include free unlocks for those not wanting to pay for the full pass. The pass includes weapon charms, operator skins, weapon blueprints, and double XP tokens. If you’re economical with your Call of Duty points, you only need to purchase the battle pass once as you will earn enough CoD points to pay for the battle pass again next season.
New Weapons Added
Included in the battle pass as free unlocks are new weapons the Holger-26 and Ram-7. At battle pass tier 15, players unlock the Holger-26. This weapon is described as a “versatile fully-automatic 5.56mm light machine gun,” which can be “configured for a broad range of engagements.” Then at tier 31, the Ram-7 is unlocked. The Ram-7 is a “fully automatic bullpup assault rifle with a compact design that lends itself to close range engagements.”
New Maps added to Modern Warfare
With the launch of season one returns a fan-favorite map from Call of Duty 4 – Crash. The map has been remade for Modern Warfare with high-res textures and interactable doors that were new to Modern Warfare. The map has been opened up around the spawns, which allow players to take new routes. Crash is currently available in a 24/7 playlist. In addition, Infinity Ward has promised to add CoD 4 maps Vacant and Shipment to Modern Warfare at some point over the first season. A new Ground War map, Port, has also been added, which includes a version of Vacant inside it as the C Flag.
On top of this content, two new operators have also been added – Mara for Coalition and Nikto for Allegiance. Mara is unlocked upon purchasing the battle pass, and she has unlockable style options throughout. Nikto, while visible, is currently unavailable and will be added later in the season.
