Modern Warfare’s Season 2 trailer has leaked ahead of the February 11 update, revealing a slew of new information from maps such as Rust to additional weapons and more. 

While previous leaks gave a first-look at various Battle Pass details and hinted at the inclusion of certain maps in the seasonal update, the official Season 2 trailer has leaked ahead of time confirming a wide array of details.

From the heavily rumored return of Modern Warfare 2’s Rust map, to sprawling Ground War battlegrounds, and an entirely new Battle Pass, the leaked trailer revealed just what fans can expect when the Season 2 update is released.

The leaked trailer opens with a shot of fan-favorite Modern Warfare 2 character Simon “Ghost” Riley, as the iconic masked figure turns over the body of a downed soldier.

Confirming previous teases, which indicated Ghost would be a playable Operator in Season 2, the character appears identical in the cinematic as to earlier visual leaks. 

The video then transitions to a fly-through of Rust, the popular Modern Warfare 2 map. Having been reimagined for the latest Call of Duty, this will mark the first playable iteration of the close-quarters stomping grounds since 2009. 

Maintaining both its appearance and layout, the trailer showcases all aspects of combat on the returning map, including the historic high ground vantage point.

Urzikstan, the home of a brand new Gunfight map known as Bazaar, also made an appearance in the trailer. This addition to the 2v2 playlist seems to feature frantic indoor and outdoor lanes for close and long-range engagements respectively.

The new Ground War map could be one of the biggest yet.

Zhokov Boneyard was revealed as the latest Ground War map to be implemented in Modern Warfare. With scattered plane wreckages across the massive battlefield, players are able to dip in and out of combat or even ride straight overhead in various other grounded vehicles.

New weapons were also on display throughout the trailer, though not much can be discerned from the few seconds of footage. 

However, previous leaks indicated that two new weapons will be introduced: both the GRAU 5.56 assault rifle and the Strike 45 SMG.

CoD streamers slam Warzone star WarsZ for “pathetic” K/D tanking

Call of Duty: Warzone stars continue to call each other out – this time Tommey is joined by HusKerrs and others in critiquing multi-event champion, WarsZ, for manipulating tournament Kill-Death Ratio (K/D) caps by tanking his account.

With more and more money being piled into Warzone tournaments, the stakes are higher than ever and competitors are understandably adamant about integrity. Many of these competitions have turned to K/D caps, as a way to limit good players from forming super squads that’ll end up dominating the opposition.

Following earlier condemnations from top streamers like NICKMERCS and Aydan about others gaming the K/D cap limits, Tommey has exposed WarsZ in particular for allegedly partaking in the unfair practice.

Tommey, a former Call of Duty League player and multi-time Warzone champion, did not hesitate to single out WarsZ for a suspicious drop in his kill-death ration just ahead of this week’s leg of the $210,000 Vikkstar Warzone Showdown.

Although the caps have been instituted in tournaments to provide for better parity among teams, they can also be manipulated by purposefully delivering uncharacteristically poor performances.

WarsZ has won six Warzone championships across different tournaments, so Tommey’s linked image of the streamer having double-digit zero-kill matches in the past few days is particularly damning.

“People seem to be scared of the repercussions but I’m fed up with the bulls**t,” Tommey tweeted, tagging the rival competitor directly while calling the alleged tanking “pathetic.”

As for WarsZ’s response, it was not well-received. Suggesting that this notable drop in K/D was spurred by having his “girl” play on his account, a variety of notable Warzone competitors slammed the excuse. Among those wast renowned multi-time champion, HusKerrs, who replied simply, “Brother, c’mon now… nobody is buying that.”

Popular streamer DougisRaw also chimed in, mocking the excuse for how obviously the screenshot goes against the idea of letting an inexperienced player drop in for some games: “Damn, your girl plays solo squads. She’s cracked.”

 

While none of the allegations can be proven, many seem dissatisfied with WarsZ’s excuse and believes it is unfair to competitors like Jukeyz and others who were unable to snag tournament spots because of their high K/D.

It must be noted, as Tommey mentioned in the tweet above, that Vikkstar’s tournament technically doesn’t prohibit such a tactic, so while WarsZ isn’t breaking any rules, it’s fair to say that the rest of the big-name competitors don’t think too highly of it.

It remains to be seen if other tournaments will begin following NICKMERCS in the way he runs his MFAM Gauntlets, monitoring participants’ past in-game performances to make sure that they’re not trying to circumvent the K/D cap.
