Battle Pass

A brand new Battle Pass comes to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for players to dive into with some awesome content. New weapons, new operators, new blueprints, Wartracks and more are in-store for those who pick up this season’s Battle Pass. Highlights of the pass are below.

Highlights

New Operator: Lerch, Shadow Company (Tier 0): Lerch’s initial look – the Operator skin “Behemoth” – becomes increasingly tactical with the “Gargantua” and “Colossus” variants earned by completing his Operators Mission. Lerch is Shadow Company’s leader and a former MARSOC member who received a general discharge under honorable conditions. Barely. Thrives in the private sector where he operates under his own terms.

Wartracks (Tier 0): Get a trio of songs so you can listen to a variety of Modern Warfare music as you drive through Verdansk. The tracks include “Sepulchre”, an audio assault of bombastic metal previously heard from inside a Juggernaut suit.

Rodion Operator Skin and Mission (Tier 0): Rodion also shows his alliance to Shadow Company with the “Archangel” skin and Mission.

XP Boost (Tier 0): Get more XP for your efforts with this 10% XP boost that lasts the duration of the Season. 

Battle Pass Vehicle Highlights: Expect a dark and brooding look to many of the Battle Pass items in-keeping with the arrival of Shadow Company. These include a variety of vehicle skins like the “Tarrasch” (ATV) and “Siege Tower” (Cargo Truck). Continue your matte black vehicle collection with the “Night Ranger” (SUV) skin. Check out all the vehicle skins in the Battle Pass system and equip them in the Vehicle Customization menu.

Battle Pass Operator Skin Highlights: As well as Lerch’s evolving skin and Rodion’s “Archangel” outfit, expect a number of additional skins (with associated Operator Missions) as you progress through the Battle Pass. There’s the “Safeguard” Otter skin, “Lynx” Domino skin, Joint Task Force Mil-Sim skin, “Honcho” Yegor skin, “Pursuit Special” Wyatt skin, “Chill Pill” Syd skin, “Jackdaw” Talon skin, and the “Cut and Run” skin for Iskra. Lastly, if you’re wanting to defeat a foe with a savaging from the jet-black beak of an attack Raven, be sure to equip the “Nevermore” finisher!

Battle Pass Blueprint Weapon Highlights: As well as the previously listed free Blueprint weapons, you can earn many more additional Blueprints within the Battle Pass. These include a new melee blueprint, three handguns, two shotguns, three SMGs, two assault rifles, three LMGs, and a sniper rifle.

Battle Pass Tier 100: The ultimate Season Five Battle Pass reward is the “Rook” skin for Roze, as well as “The Veil” vehicle skin, and more. Shoot for “The Company’s Might”; negative tracer rounds for Assault Rifle Lima to fill your foes with fear as well as projectiles!
