Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III & Warzone Season I Reloaded are here — Here’s the patch notes

We’ve had a few snafus today, with a few things breaking from the update and Ranked Play getting a temporary delay. Even so, this update is packed to the brim with multiplayer changes, with spawns and new hardpoint hills. Whenever Ranked does arrived, it certainly looks like MWIII will be ready for it. Check out all of the patch notes below.

Season 1 Reloaded is now live in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Call of Duty: Warzone. Starting now, players can jump into Rio, the all-new Modern Warfare III 6v6 Multiplayer map, as well as new game modes, a new Gulag Public Event in Warzone, and engage a new Warlord in Zombies. And that’s not everything – there’s tons of new content to explore!

MULTIPLAYER

Season 1 Reloaded has arrived in Modern Warfare III with an all-new 6v6 Multiplayer map, new Weapons, and new game modes, including MWIII Ranked Play!

Visit the Season 1 Reloaded Announcement Blog for more information.

NEW MAPS

Rio (6v6)

  • Test your mettle in a once-idyllic coastal town, where waters at the shore lap at the hull of a burning yacht, signaling disaster.

NEW OPERATORS

A-Train

  • Rush through the competition with the Tracer Pack: The Boys – A-Train Operator Bundle.

Firecracker

  • Blast your way through your enemies with the Tracer Pack: The Boys – Firecracker Operator Bundle.

NEW MODES

Headquarters

  • Secure the Headquarters objective and hold the position as long as possible to accrue points. Dig in tight, as respawns are disabled for the defending team. The objective rotates around the map throughout the match, so be ready to change your position on the fly.

Team Gunfight

  • Experience Gunfight on a larger scale. In this version, players compete in 6v6 across standard Multiplayer maps. As with traditional Gunfight, all players will receive the same randomized Loadout at the start of each round. This Loadout changes throughout the match. Adapt to what you’re given and wipe out the competition.

Infected

  • Begin the match with one player randomly assigned as the starting infected. The infected player’s goal is to eliminate and transform all the other players into infected Operators who then join their side, while the remaining survivors must use their best skills and strategies to keep the infected at bay.

Ranked Mode

  • Check out the dedicated MWIII Ranked Play section below!

NEW WEAPONS

  • TAQ Evolvere (LMG)
  • HRM-9 (SMG)

EVENTS

The Boys are back, and an all-new mode arrives in Modern Warfare III Multiplayer with them: Supe Siege is here.

Compete in a new Supe’d Up version of Kill Confirmed inspired by the hit TV series The Boys. In this twist on the classic mode, fallen Operators drop doses of Temp V, giving temporary power boosts like Heat Vision to those who swoop in to collect them.

Prove that you belong with the Supes by completing six challenges in The Boys: Supe Siege Event Challenge. The challenges are as follows:

  • Get one Operator Heat Vision elimination in The Boys mode (Reward: Calling Card).
  • Deactivate 20 pieces of Equipment using DDoS (Reward: Emblem).
  • Get four Operator eliminations using the MTZ-762 (Reward: Battle Pass Tier Skip).
  • Get two Operator eliminations in a single life with the Overkill Vest equipped, five times (Reward: Large Decal).
  • Get 15 Operator Akimbo eliminations (Reward: Weapon Charm).
  • Get seven Operator eliminations using Lethal Equipment (Reward: Double XP Token).

Mastery Reward: Complete all six challenges to earn “The Boys Special” LMG Weapon Blueprint featuring four attachments, equipped with a whopping 150-round drum and incendiary ammunition for aggressive suppressive fire.

SR (SKILL RATING) & DIVISION OVERVIEW

  • Test yourself against your peers and track that progress with a visible SR (Skill Rating) that determines your place across 8 Skill Divisions.
  • All players begin our first Competitive Season in Bronze I with 0 SR.
  • Players increase their SR by winning matches and lose SR whenever they lose matches.
  • Both individual and team performance will impact how much SR you gain or lose per match. In higher Skill Divisions, team performance has a bigger impact on SR gained or lost so that all winning playstyles are more consistently rewarded.
  • Players can progress through eight Skill Divisions by reaching SR milestones:
    • Bronze – Starting Division
    • Silver – 900 SR
    • Gold – 2,100 SR
    • Platinum – 3,600 SR
    • Diamond – 5,400 SR
    • Crimson – 7,500 SR
    • Iridescent – 10,000 SR
    • Top 250 – 10,000+ SR
  • Division Tiers: All Divisions except for Iridescent have 3 Tiers – Tier I, Tier II & Tier III. Climb into higher Tiers as you advance your way through each Division.
  • Show Off Your Skill: It’s easy to see which Division someone is in in MWII Ranked Play. Your entire Rank Icon will change color and material depending on your current Skill Division. Your current Tier is also prominently shown in the center of your Rank icon.
  • End of Season Skill Setback: At the end of each Season, your ending Skill Division and Skill Division Tier will determine where you start the following season:
    • Bronze through Crimson I Players are set back three (3) Tiers below where they finished in the previous season.
      • Example: A Player ending Season 1 in Gold III will begin Season 2 in Silver III.
    • Players Crimson II and above will start Season 2 in Diamond I.
      • The highest starting position each Season is Diamond I.

Top 250 Leaderboard & Division

  • The Top 250 Division returns, ranking the top 250 Ranked Play players in the world on an in-game Leaderboard that all players can view starting Day 1 of each season from within the Multiplayer Ranked Play lobby.
    • Players will qualify for the Top 250 and appear on the Leaderboard as they surpass 10,000+ SR.
    • The top 250 players with the highest SR above 10,000 will remain on the board and compete for 1st place over the remainder of the Season.
  • Play like the Pros, against the Pros: Top 250 Leaderboard will display CDL Team Affiliations and Profiles for current CDL Professional players and coaches. Keep track of your favorite players and teams and see how they stack up against the Ranked Play competition.
  • Ultimate Bragging Rights: In addition to new Rank and Seasonal Rewards in Modern Warfare 3, the #1 Ranked Play player will receive a unique, one-of-a-kind Calling Card and Emblem at the end of each Season.

COMPETITIVE INTEGRITY FEATURES

  • Penalties & Suspensions: Players who disconnect or quit matches will receive SR penalties as well as temporary suspensions, with escalating penalties for repeat offenders.
  • SR Forgiveness: If a matchmade player disconnects or quits in the middle of the match, all team members outside of that player’s party will not lose ANY SR.
    • It is still possible to earn SR if players can overcome their disadvantage, but a loss at a numerical disadvantage will not yield SR loss for players outside of the leaving player’s party.
  • Match Cancel: If a player quits or disconnects before the start of a match, the match will be canceled and will not count. The remaining players will be returned to the main menu.
  • Professional Conduct Only: Friendly Fire is enabled in Ranked Play per CDL rules. Repeated Friendly Fire will result in players being kicked from games and receiving penalties and suspensions.
  • Demotion Protection: After advancing to a higher Skill Division, players will be granted temporary Demotion Protection and will not lose any SR within the first three games in the new Division. Following that initial protection, if players were to lose enough SR to be demoted, they will first be dropped to the minimum threshold of their current Skill Division instead of being demoted. Losing their next match will result in a demotion.
    • Demotion Protection is also applied for the player’s first 3 games of each Ranked Play Season.
  • Party SR Restrictions: To ensure competitive fairness and balance of matches in higher Skill Divisions, players in certain Divisions can only party up with players around their current SR. The player with the highest Skill Division in the party determines which Party SR Restrictions are used:
    • Bronze – Platinum: Can party up without any restrictions
    • Diamond: Can party within 2 Skill Divisions
    • Iridescent (Including Top 250) & Crimson: Can party with players within 1 Skill Division

ADDITIONAL SOCIAL FEATURES

  • Hot Streaks: Win 3 Ranked Play games in a row over a short period of time to earn Victory Streak Flames that appear behind your Rank Icon in the lobby and in-game. Extend your win streak to progress the flames. Victory Streak Flames expire when you lose or after 72 hours without playing a Ranked Play match. Go on a roll and the competition will know the heat is coming. (Stay Spicy!)
  • Social Profile: Rank Play icons will be added to your Social profile to identify your Ranked Play Skill Division and Rank anywhere your profile is viewed across Modern Warfare III and Warzone.

Among the recent additions, Urzikstan Resurgence stands out, having garnered unprecedented engagement from a Resurgence mode on a big map. We understand that with a large, diverse player base comes varied preferences, but we prioritize introducing and rotating in modes that perform exceptionally well to ensure an enjoyable gaming experience for as many players as we can reach.
