CoD Warzone 2

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 season 2 will be released on February 15, and a new blog post from Activision describes all the main changes coming for DMZ mode. The seasonal update will contain a new location, a new boss encounter, and a seasonal wipe. Check out everything you need to know before you start Season 2 of DMZ.

New DMZ location and map changes

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is getting the new Ashika Island map for Season 2, which will allow gamers a new location to enter in DMZ mode. The map features seven points of interest, and the island comes with a new Weapon’s Case event, boss encounter, and more.

Ashika Island will also provide opportunities to find the keycards needed to access¬†DMZ’s locked Building 21 location. The keycards on the island can be obtained in the same manner as the Al Mazrah map, which includes searching the rare orange loot chests, public supply drop events, and the supply drops earned from SAM Site Contracts or from taking out the helicopter commander.

The blog post also teases a map change and new story details for Al Mazrah. Players will want to investigate the crash of an unknown aircraft at the Sattiq Cave Complex location, and there will be new story intel for the various Factions.

The DMZ wipe

The blog also addresses the previously announced seasonal wipe for DMZ. Activision says the refresh will include the removal of earned Contraband weapons, key stashes will be emptied, and all Faction missions and mission progress will be reset. The publisher says this reset is to make room for an updated mission set that incorporates all maps.

The publisher ensures that players won’t lose any Insured weapons slots unlocked through earlier Faction missions. Additionally, gamers who haven’t unlocked the additional slots will have an easier time making headway with Season 2’s changes to mission difficulties.

Any rewards you earned during Season 1 will not be reset. This includes operator skins, weapon blueprints, and other cosmetics received from events and boss encounters.

To complete the reset, Activision says DMZ may have to go offline for a few hours ahead of Season 2’s release, more details will be revealed at a later time.

New Faction

A new Faction called the Crown will be entering in Season 2, but this new group of missions will be only available to those who own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This fourth Faction is vaguely defined as a British group wrapped in mystery.

Other changes

Season 2 will bring many new quality-of-life changes, that include more stability, adjustments to overpowered AI, and enhanced scaling of the difficulty in faction missions as the tiers level up.

Spawn points are also tuned in Al Mazrah. This comes with player infill areas, as well as changes to exfil points, the boss spawns, and dead drop locations.

When talking about the future of DMZ, Activision says there is no sense in applying a mission refresh every season. “Instead, we’re excited to try different approaches each season to continually improve the DMZ experience,” the publisher says. “More to come on this in the future.”

Season 2 is also expected to come with some significant changes to the battle royale.
