Operator Skin, LMG Weapon Blueprint, XP Boosts

Battle Pass Bundle Exclusive: Three Legendary Halima Skins
Purchase the Last Stand Battle Pass Bundle for access to all 100 Tiers. This will also immediately unlock a large portion of the early Tiers and give you three exclusive Legendary Halima Operator Skins: “Stingray,” “Divemaster,” and “Neptunian.”
Two Free Functional Weapons — EX1 and RA 225
Expand your Loadout options with two new Battle Pass weapons. Unlock the Marco 5 SMG at Tier 15 and the UGM-8 LMG at Tier 31.
EX1 (Tier 15 of Battle Pass System)
“A prototype energy rifle effective at long range and highly customizable.”
This prototype Energy Rifle leaves behind traditional ballistics in favor of a customizable battery system used to power its attacks. Effective at long range, the weapon requires a cooling off period after depleting its charge capacity. You don’t have to worry about running out of ammo, but get caught during the reload and you’re in trouble.
Equip the Heat Muzzle for extra charge capacity, insert a new Battery, and transform the EX1’s capabilities with the Burst Barrel or Charge Sniper Barrel. Its Gunsmith potential is impressive, with options for every scenario.
RA 225 (Tier 31 of Battle Pass System)
“This SMG has a high fire rate and a very mobile compact frame.”
This lightweight SMG boasts a fast fire rate and quick handling, perfect for shredding enemies in close- to midrange battles — if you can manage its upward kick. It’s great for objective play in tight areas, though you may want to pair it with a heavier-damage-dealing weapon when more firepower is needed.
It’s highly customizable via Gunsmith, too, with options for greater power, handling, and accuracy. Find the right balance and soon you’ll never want to be without this blazing SMG. Keep your eyes out for extra ammo — this is one hungry weapon.
New Weapon Blueprints and Operator Skins
You’ll need every tool at your disposal if your side hopes to win the coming conflict. The Last Stand Battle Pass ensures you’re prepared with Weapon Blueprints for every situation. Here are some of the highlights:
Epic “Supercritical” Assault Rifle Blueprint (Tier 5): Get an early taste of the new Season Five Assault Rifle with this Blueprint, featuring a high-tech design with a sniper configuration that can one-shot enemies within range.
Legendary “Tigris Imperial” SMG Blueprint (Tier 27): No expense has been spared on this highly ornate SMG Blueprint with gold etchings, a dragon decal, and handling fit for a prince.
Legendary “Pink Cackle” Assault Rifle Blueprint (Tier 42): Laugh off enemy attacks with this Call of Duty: Warzone-worthy Blueprint equipped with larger caliber, lengthened rounds that bring the pain from any distance.
Legendary “World Traveler” LMG Blueprint (Tier 65): Suppress enemy Operators with a villainous LMG Blueprint featuring an adjustable scope with attachments focused on control and stability through continuous fire.
Legendary “Inter Spectrum” SMG Blueprint (Tier 95): A Legendary Blueprint for the new Season Five SMG, the “Inter Spectrum” offers a red and white prototype aesthetic in a configuration fit for a high-damage, aim-down-sights playstyle.
The Battle Pass also features a new Operator Skin every 10 Tiers, including “Tatted Track” Roland at Tier 30, “Prep Casual” Daniel at Tier 80, and “Active Lifestyle” Wade at Tier 90.
Tier 100 Rewards — Being Bad Never Felt So Good
In addition to unlocking the “Odysseus” player title, the seasonal Emblem, and the “Carved and Butchered” Charm at Tier 100, you’ll also get the following Ultra Operator Skin and Legendary Weapon Blueprint:
Ultra “Populist Revolutionary” Raul Operator Skin: Forgoing his traditional sleek attire, Menendez sports tattoos and sunglasses in this Ultra Operator Skin that’s sure to excite the masses.
Legendary “Circuit Core” Assault Rifle Blueprint: Straight from the lab, the “Circuit Core” Weapon Blueprint lights up all over its black and blue frame, with a barrel design that makes it seem from out of this world.

Khaled Al-Asad Operator Bundle
Favorite Weapon: RA 225 (unlocked free at Tier 31 of the Last Stand Battle Pass)
Year of Birth: 1963
Khaled Al-Asad grew up in Urzikstan amid political strife. He was drawn to the words of Omar Sulaman and joined the Al-Qatala terrorist group. He was imprisoned but escaped after Sulaman’s death to take control of Al-Qatala. His leadership transformed the militants into an army as he acquired an arsenal for the invasion of Verdansk. Committed to the demise of Western power, Al-Asad launched gas attacks in Verdansk, breaking a fragile armistice between nations.
A Middle Eastern warlord and key antagonist throughout the Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® series, Al-Asad is the second of “The Four Horsemen,” outranked only by Vladimir Makarov himself.
Players who have digitally pre-ordered either the Cross-Gen (console), Standard (PC), or Vault Edition (console or PC) versions of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II will receive the Khaled Al-Asad Operator Bundle for free and will have immediate access once it becomes available in the Store, for use in Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone.
Expect plenty more Season Five Bundles throughout Last Stand, such as the Tracer Pack: Call of Duty®: 8-bit Warfare Mastercraft, Tracer Pack: Gene Splicer Reactive Mastercraft, and more, including an extra slate of Bundles appearing in the midseason update.
