Activision released a community update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 on January 25, revealing that DMZ mode would receive a new map location, difficulty scaling for AI opponents, and other changes. However, some players are disappointed by the unexpected announcement that Season 2 would also include a complete seasonal wipe.
Season 2’s wipe will include a reset of everyone’s current Faction mission tier progress, the removal of all Contraband weapons and keys from player inventory, and the introduction of brand-new Faction missions. Essentially, players will be starting over from the beginning.
In recent weeks, both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone 2 have struggled.
Though the former sold extremely well and the latter reached some impressive player count milestones shortly after release, many players have since abandoned the games for a variety of reasons. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s struggles have been attributed to a lack of content, but Call of Duty: Warzone 2’s issues are more diverse – and the planned fixes will not be welcomed by all.
The upcoming DMZ wipe will also be frustrating for some players who struggled with the difficulty of higher-tier missions, which were made even more difficult by the mode’s brutally powerful AI. Individual missions earn XP, operator skins, and weapon blueprints, but many players were dedicated to the tedious grind of completing all mission tiers to unlock additional insured weapon slots, which they will now lose with the new season.
