Industry insider Tom Henderson claims to have recreated Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2’s ‘DMZ’ map, showing its general layout and POI locations.

A ton of leaks and rumors surrounding Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 have dropped over the past couple of weeks detailing Warzone 2’s new mechanics, the classic Modern Warfare 2 maps arriving as POIs, and the DMZ’s marketplace with tradeable items.

Now, after leaker TheMW2Ghost showed a portion of the map that will reportedly be shared between both Warzone 2 and the Escape from Tarkov-inspired DMZ, Tom Henderson has recreated the full map showing its POIs.

Rather than showing off an in-game image of what they claim to be the DMZ and Warzone 2’s map, Tom Henderson has revealed “what the official Warzone 2 map currently looks like via a drawing.”

In this drawing posted to Try Hard Guides, we can see that the map is set to be on the coast similar to Verdansk, featuring coastal POIs that could use the swimming mechanic that Henderson previously leaked.

While this drawing doesn’t reveal the size of the map, Henderson said “it does seem bigger than that of Verdansk and Caldera, especially considering if the grid reference is accurate.”

Henderson has also marked the portion of the map that TheMW2Ghost previously showed off. Their map didn’t give a ton of detail, but it shows what appears to be roads or train tracks passing through the map. Also, there’s a large river cutting through the middle of the map, with a lake on the eastern side.

There are a few icons on TheMW2Ghost’s drawing, but we’re not sure what they mean. The locks could indicate the Strongholds that both YouTuber NerosCinema and Henderson claim will allow players to get their loadouts, but there’s no guarantee.

Previous leaks have indicated that this map will be based in Central America, taking inspiration from Medellín, Colombia, but the recreation doesn’t confirm this one way or the other.

Of course, this is just a leak for now so there’s no guarantee that this is what Warzone 2 and the DMZ’s map will look like. We expect to hear more from Activision and Infinity Ward later this year, so stay tuned.

Modern Warfare 2 leak details DMZ mode gameplay & objectives

Although Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ is still unofficial, dataminers have reportedly uncovered the mode’s objectives.

There’s a ton of hype over the leaked Tarkov-inspired ‘DMZ’ mode that’s coming to Modern Warfare 2, and it appears Warzone Mobile’s game files have revealed the mode’s gameplay and objective.

Modern Warfare 2 arrives later in 2022, bringing a globe-trotting campaign, Spec Ops, and Warzone 2.0. But there’s still one mode that Infinity Ward have yet to confirm, although a ton of leaks and rumors surround it — DMZ.

Short for ‘demilitarized zone,’ DMZ is set to be Call of Duty’s answer to extraction-based games such as Escape from Tarkov. Images of Modern Warfare 2’s maps leaked through Warzone Mobile’s game files, and this has also revealed DMZ’s gameplay and objectives.

CoD leaker ‘Reality’ claims to have discovered a ton of Modern Warfare 2 info in Warzone Mobile’s game files, including the maps, weapons, and even concept art for Treyarch’s CoD 2024

Included in these game files were a ton of strings for DMZ, detailing the missions and objectives Modern Warfare 2 players will have to undertake. These include searching marked areas for radioactivity, destroying supplies, finding intel, and extracting. 

It appears that radioactivity will play a large part in DMZ, where players will need to secure radioactive material and “acquire Geiger counters from the cache.” 

Players will also need to rescue hostages and defend safes they’ve opened from Hostiles. It sounds like the DMZ mode will be absolutely chock-full of content, offering players even more objectives than Escape from Tarkov.  

It still appears it will still have a similar gameplay loop though, where players have to “extract safely.” The mode hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but insider Tom Henderson has claimed that it won’t be free to play and will launch with Modern Warfare 2. 

With the multiplayer reveal and beta still to come, we should know much more about the mode in the run-up to October 28. In the meantime, be sure to check out how to get the free Final Judgement bundle in Warzone with Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 insider claims new DMZ mode will not be free to play

Renowned leaker Tom Henderson has claimed that Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ mode will not be a free to play experience upon release.

Information concerning Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ mode continues to arise prior to the game’s October 28 release. Amidst confusion surrounding what the mode will entail, leaker Tom Henderson has claimed that DMZ will not be free to play.

Call of Duty fans got their first look at what to expect from Modern Warfare 2 during the Campaign gameplay reveal that took place at Summer Game Fest. Furthermore, leaks have also revealed images of Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer maps.

While new information continues to shed light on the upcoming Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ mode remains shrouded in mystery. Despite the lack of information concerning the mode, a report from Tom Henderson suggests that DMZ will not be free to play.

The DMZ mode will be a fresh experience for Call of Duty fans as Escape from Tarkov-like extraction-based gameplay is set to take center stage.

Not much is known about the mode, but Henderson did previously reveal that DMZ and Warzone 2 would share a map consisting of classic Modern Warfare 2 POIs.

On July 4, Henderson published another report that brings players one step closer to understanding what the DMZ mode will entail.

It seems the mystery surrounding the mode has led to several false rumors, including one that had players believing DMZ would be a free-to-play experience like Warzone.

Henderson claims that this expectation is false: “Although the future of the DMZ could become free-to-play, that’s currently not the plan. Instead, the DMZ will be tied to Modern Warfare 2 as another mode.”

The industry insider does not rule out the possibility of DMZ eventually adopting a free to play model, but at launch, it will be considered a mode available to players who purchase Modern Warfare 2.

As the October 28 release date for Modern Warfare 2 approaches, inaccurate rumors should cease, while clarity over the game’s modes like DMZ is expected to grow.

A ton of Modern Warfare 2’s weapons have reportedly been leaked, so here’s every MW2 weapon we know of so far.

CoD players are desperate to see which weapons we can expect to see in Modern Warfare 2 later this year, and a ton of the weapons have reportedly leaked through Warzone Mobile’s files.

Modern Warfare 2019 fans absolutely loved the weapons and their realistic animations, and Modern Warfare 2 is set to bring the same level of quality.

We’ve already seen and heard some of these weapons in action in the Dark Water mission gameplay reveal, and a dev has responded to fears over reused animations.

Dataminers reportedly uncovered images of Modern Warfare 2 and Treyarch’s CoD 2024’s maps in Warzone Mobile‘s game files, but they also found a list of the weapons coming to the game.

AX-50 Sniper Rifle in CoD Warzone

Dataminer ‘Reality’ has claimed to reveal the Modern Warfare 2019 weapons we can expect to return in Modern Warfare 2 as well as the brand-new additions.

Modern Warfare 2 is a direct sequel to 2019, taking place roughly three years later, and players can expect to see fan favorites such as the Bruen Mk9, M4, and AX-50 Sniper Rifle return.

There are also some brand-new weapons found in the game files, such as the STG A3 and the Bryson 800. You can check out the full list of leaked Modern Warfare 2 weapons below:

  • LM-S
  • M4
  • Bryson 800
  • STG A3
  • Lockwood 725
  • X12
  • Revive Pistol
  • Lachmann Sub
  • AX-50
  • RAAL MG
  • .50 GS
  • PSDW 50
  • Sakin 9
  • RPG-7
  • PILA
  • JOKR
  • Strela-P
  • LMP
  • Bruen Mk9

Players also spotted weapons such as the SCAR, EBR-14, P90, G3, and AK-47 in the campaign gameplay trailer, so it’s likely that the majority of the weapons have been both leaked and revealed.

However, the new Gunsmith system includes weapon branches where one gun can create several, so there may be several weapons we haven’t seen yet.

We’ll likely need to wait until the multiplayer gameplay reveal and beta to have a better understanding of what weapons we’ll see in the full game.
