DMZ Season 2 Reloaded: Key changes

Updated usage requirements for Building 21 Access Cards

With Season 2 Reloaded, every player will no longer need to equip Building 21 Access Cards prior to dropping into the match. It will be enough if a single player decides to carry an Access Card to Building 21 before infiltrating.

Remember, this change won’t impact the Access or Key Cards for accessing locked spaces inside Building 21. You will still need to equip those in your Backpack before entering the match.

Integration of new features & more for DMZ

Season 2 Reloaded brings variations to the infiltration and exfiltration points in Al Mazrah. The total count of vehicles has also been reduced in the Modern City for an even distribution of the same throughout the entire map.

Improving the experience

There is a slight chance of enemy combatants dropping an upgraded weapon upon their death. Also, they may arrive or operate in a variety of vehicles and not just armored trucks.
