Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 3 Battle Pass Overview

Published

on

Season 3 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone officially begins on April 8 and brings a brand new Battle Pass with new characters, items, and more for fans to earn as they level up.

The new Battle Pass features instant access to Echo-131, Alex from the Modern Warfare campaign. In addition, the Battle Pass features access to new weapons, new customization items, vehicle skins, and more.

The Free Tier of the Battle Pass includes two new weapons for fans to earn and play with in MP.

In the Battle Pass system, players can earn two free new weapons at Tiers 15 and 31: the Renetti handgun and the SKS marksman rifle. 

  • Renetti is a well-rounded semi-auto 9mm pistol with an alternative three-round burst attachment. Unassuming, yet deadly, this sidearm excels in close-range combat, but can be kitted for a variety of situations.
  • SKS, a lightweight, semi-auto carbine chambered in 7.62x39mm rounds. This hard hitting and agile Soviet-style marksman rifle focuses on utility over accuracy, which has helped it stand the test of time. It flaunts a faster fire rate than other weapons in its class, but a carefully placed round will eliminate the need for follow up shots entirely. 

For the paid stream, there’s a variety of new content for fans to earn in the Season 3 Battle Pass.

  • New Operator – Echo 131 – After selflessly – and supposedly – sacrificing his own life to destroy the toxic gas factory by manually triggering explosives. Somehow, Alex escaped General Roman D. Barkov’s chemical facility and remained in hiding until Price needed him to come back into the fray…
  • Vehicle Customization Items

There is also new distinct Operator threads available in the Battle Pass system.

  • At Tier 10, players will get the first of new distinct Operator threads modeled after various armed forces divisions. These ‘mil-sim’ skins include the U.S. Expeditionary Force (Tier 10), the South Korean Special Forces (Tier 30), Pararescue (Tier 50), and the Counter Terrorist Special Police Force. 

The full suite of the Season 3 Battle Pass is available to start earning on April 8 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Trailer:

The Call of Duty blog has provided more details on what to expect from the two new Operators, who are part of the upcoming Season 6 Battle Pass.

Farah

“This occupation must end. That we can all agree on, yes?”

The founder and Commander of the Urzikstani Liberation Force, Farah, grew up a fighter after surviving imprisonment by Roman Barkov. She’s an exceptional soldier and leader that’s known a lifetime of war. Her skills have been further honed with additional training with the SAS, and she’s led dangerous missions to fight off Al-Qatala forces and other regimes stationed in her country. 

Following the events of Campaign, Farah joins the Chimera of the Allegiance reuniting with Iskra, a former scout of hers. Farah is instantly unlocked at Tier 0 of the Season Six Battle Pass. In addition to Farah’s base skin, players can earn additional skins and other rewards by completing her Operator Missions. 

Nikolai

“Nikolai, you’ve been a bad boy.” “From you that’s a compliment.”

Nikolai is the leader of the Chimera, a PMC within the Allegiance. A long-time friend to Captain Price, Nikolai initially worked with Price, Kamarov, and Kate Laswell to build the Armistice to stop the rise of a new AQ. After the Armisitice collapse, Nikolai now takes the battle in his own hands to stop Zakhaev. 

Nikolai is a Russian patriot at heart with a deep love for his country only matched by his love for weaponry. He’s known as a fixer and can acquire most anything, anywhere. Despite his murky background, he’ll always choose what’s right when it counts. Nikolai is unlocked at Tier 100 of the Season Six Battle Pass. Players can complete Operator Missions to earn additional skins for Nikolai and other rewards. 

Season 6 will begin on Sept. 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Alongside the new content teased in the trailer, there will also be more to come in MP.

Stay tuned for the latest on Season 6.
