Call of Duty YouTuber TheGamingRevolution claims to have revealed new information about Modern Warfare season two, including brand new quests and details about the still-unconfirmed battle royale mode.

Following the path set by Fortnite and their battle pass, many other multiplayer titles have followed suit – splitting their new additions into ‘seasons’ and dropping plenty of new content like maps, cosmetics, and challenges to play through.

For Modern Warfare, the first season kicked off back in December, adding the iconic map of Crash. The end date for the season has since been pushed back, and while some fans might be questioning why, and what they can look forward to, CoD leaker TheGamingRevolution has claimed to have some early information.

In his newest upload, the YouTuber claimed to have gotten his hands on the in-game strings that reveal what has been added by the developers. His first reveal came in the form of four new quest lines that have challenges inside – including one that involves running players over with vehicles.

Aside from that, TheGamingRevolution also noted that he had some new information about the supposed battle royale mode inside Modern Warfare – claiming to have been sent a loading screen for when the mode actually becomes available.

He also claimed that a source within Infinity Ward explained that the battle royale has been “delayed” in line with the season one end date as it “needs more time.” However, that doesn’t mean that it is absolutely coming with season two. The sourced noted that it is a possibility, but the BR could also come in season three, or be canceled altogether if it doesn’t “release soon.”

While there’s no solid information on what maps could come in season two, there are some new modes seemingly coming, as logos for One in the Chamber and All or Nothing have been added to the game’s files. 

As for other content, the YouTuber speculated that there would be a new operator in the form of the Ghost of Verdansk as his face and logo has been appearing on multiplayer maps. There could also be two weapons as well, with an SMG, LMG, and Ballistic Knife surfacing in different files. 

As ever, while the YouTuber has proven to have good information in the past, it’s always worth taking everything with a pinch of salt until it is available in-game.

After all, Infinity Ward could very well change their minds depending on a number of factors – including scrapping things altogether because they’ve been leaked. We’ll just have to wait and see.

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.

Specific dates for the upcoming 2021 season events are still unknown, but we’ll keep you posted on them as information becomes available.

If you’re interested in seeing if you and your team have what it takes, you can get more information on how to sign up and get going right here. There’s no guarantee you’ll be the next player on the Dallas Empire or anything like that, but if you’re confident in your ability to frag out, it can’t hurt to give it a shot.
