Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season One content has dropped! It’s the biggest drop of free content in Call of Duty history. Check out the trailer below to see what you get!
The Allegiance have shot down an Al-Qatala cargo chopper carrying chemical weapons somewhere in an Urzikstan town. Members of the Coalition arrive at the scene first, thus discovering the weapons. When the Allegiance arrive for their investigation, a conflict begins over the gas carried on the helicopter. So goes the story to start Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season One.
Multiplayer maps, Special Ops experiences and more are in the all-new battle pass system!
Multiplayer Operators have two new Gunfight maps – Atrium and Cargo – and an all-new Ground War experience, Port, to jump into.
Port: Port is the site of a supposed major shipment leaving Verdansk. Battle against your enemies among the shipping containers, cranes, buildings, and streets that define this unique addition to the Ground War map rotation.
Atrium: The centerpiece of a massive palace inside Verdansk holds a gorgeous atrium that has somehow kept its beauty throughout the war. Don’t admire the scenery too much, however: this palace is an important tactical foothold deep within the city. Gunfights here will take place around this open-air space with a large tree acting as the room’s focal point.
Cargo: The other 2v2 map takes place on the docks of London. With a major shipment set to leave here towards Verdansk, Coalition and Allegiance operators are locked in a Gunfight within the confines of this small, open-roof storage vessel for shipping containers. Wrest control of this dock, and your team will have the honor of stopping these contraband shipments from happening.
Crash from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare returns with a new purpose in the greater Modern Warfare narrative! The iconic helicopter in the map’s center is the former property of the Al-Qatala. Both the Coalition and Allegiance both want to intercept the contraband within.
Despite the new narrative, veterans of the franchise will remember it well: the flanking routes and rooftops, with new areas open for exploration!
VACANT AND SHIPMENT RETURN TOO
More maps will join the Modern Warfare Multiplayer rotation, which includes Vacant and Shipment.
Vacant from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has been reimagined to fit Modern Warfare‘s visceral and photorealistic game engine. Shipment is also from Call of Duty 4, its small size perfect for Gunfight. It’ll be available in both traditional Multiplayer and Gunfight, designed for both modes.
TWO MORE OPERATIONS, THREE CLASSIC SPECIAL OPS EXPERIENCES
Continue the Special Ops story in Season One with five new experiences to play with friends or community.
Operation Just Reward: Al-Qatala is still gaining plenty of revenue from their nefarious businesses, and it is up to Armistice to stop it. Operation Just Reward is the first phase of this plan: here, you and your squad will target the head of the group’s financial operation, who is known as “The Banker”. Hack his mobile data centers, steal contacts, and find the whereabouts of his informants to get one step closer to destroying “The Banker”.
Operation Strongbox: The second phase of Armistice’s plans to destroy Al-Qatala’s financial support involves destroying everything that “The Banker” has holed up in his vault. Conduct the most badass bank heist by using stolen crypto keys to break into his bank, crack open the vault, and escape the premises with enough cash to put “The Banker” out of business.
Classic Special Ops – Pitch Black: Taking place on Gen. Barkov’s former estate, Pitch Black will see you infiltrating the massive complex and recovering all intel you can find. You will travel behind intel locations via Tactical Rover and try your best to eliminate all hostiles along the way.
Classic Special Ops – Grounded: Al-Qatala fighters have seized Barkov’s former airbase to steal weaponry and air assets for their nefarious schemes. Here, you will engage and eliminate those militants, thereby re-securing the airbase before its land and assets fall into the wrong hands.
Classic Special Ops – Bomb Squad: Forces that are still loyal to General Barkov have planted explosives around the city of Al-Raab, Urzikstan. With the help of a helicopter for infiltration and exfiltration, your team must defuse these IEDs before they detonate and wipe out the city. Succeed, and you will not only save many innocent lives, but also deal a critical blow to the General’s stragglers.
MARA, NEW WEAPONS, BLUEPRINTS, AND MORE IN THE ALL-NEW BATTLE PASS SYSTEM
The Battle Pass System: Season One brings the first ever battle pass system, a progression stream separate from Officer and Enlisted Ranks, that allows you to earn over 170 new items just by getting the Battle Pass and playing the game.

Battle Pass: Those who purchase the Battle Pass will receive the new Operator for Season One: Mara.

The Battle Pass can be purchased anytime throughout the season. It rewards players on all of previous their tier progression once they get the Battle Pass, doling out items that were previously only available with the Battle Pass.
Battle Pass Bundle: You can also get the Battle Pass by purchasing the Battle Pass Bundle which gives you access to unlock up to 100 tiers and grants the player 20 tier skips.
