There are seven main challenges across Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. These are “based on the Seven Virtues of Bushido: Integrity, Respect, Courage, Honor, Compassion, Sincerity, and Loyalty.” 


  • This requires the player to score 100 objective defense kills in multiplayer or collect your dog tag five times in Warzone 2. Hardpoint will provide you plenty of opportunities to score objective defense kills.


  • Integrity requires 15 wins in any multiplayer game mode or five Top 10 finishes in Warzone 2. 


  • Sincerity can be completed by getting 50 kills using Battle Rage in multiplayer or completing five Assassination Contracts after hopping into Warzone 2.


  • Compassion requires 100 assists. Meanwhile, you’ll have to revive 20 teammates in Warzone 2 matches to complete the challenge in the battle royale.


  • For Courage, you’ll have to get three kills without dying 25 times to complete this section. Warzone 2 players can conquer the Courage challenge by completing three Search and Seizure contracts.


  • To complete the Loyalty challenge, players must get 50 Operator Revenge kills in Modern Warfare 2. This may require a little bit of patience and persistence, as Revenge kills in Modern Warfare 2 occur when you kill the person who killed you last. Those looking to complete the Loyalty challenge in Warzone 2 must complete three downloads during the Data Heist public event.


  • Warzone players must perform 3 executions on enemy players in matches to complete the Respect challenge. Meanwhile, getting 25 Melee Operator kills is the key to completing it in Modern Warfare 2. Both require a sneaky and stealthy style of play.


  • The ultimate reward for completing the Path of the Ronin is the crossbow. Each of the seven individual challenges will also have a reward, but those are yet to be seen.
