New details have emerged!
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the next entry within the iconic series, and with the game now being released worldwide, fans are amped for Season 1.
With the first major season coming, Infinity Ward have now released an overview for the mid-season update for MW2 and Warzone 2.
Here's what you need to know about Raids!
What Are Raids In Modern Warfare 2 Season 1?
There's a ton of content coming within MW2's first season, and it appears players are going to be kept busy for quite some time, or at least until Season 2.
Raids are one of these forms of content, and all you need to know about them is listed below.
Introducing the First Special Ops Raid: Atomgrad
Urzikstan: On the trail of their missing team, Price, Farah and Gaz make a grim discovery in an underground bunker.
Continuing from the events of the Modern Warfare II Campaign, the first Special Ops Raid is something that will take, in the words of the captain himself, “violence and timing.”
Those who successfully complete this Raid will unlock a familiar face as a brand-new Operator to use in Multiplayer and Special Ops, as well as in Warzone 2.0. It will also unlock a harder difficulty Playlist that will test even veteran Operators. You can expect to find plenty of Intel that awards additional cosmetic items, in addition to some intriguing data it provides about the Modern Warfare II universe.
Preparing for the Raid
Accessing a Raid requires a Raid Assignment, which can be earned through the following method(s):
- Complete a specific Daily Challenge either in Multiplayer or Special Ops.
- Place within the top 20 in any Warzone 2.0 Battle Royale Playlist.
- In DMZ, use the final extract helicopter with at least $30,000 in Cash.
Once a Raid Assignment is earned, that player — and whatever squadmates they choose to bring in — can access the Raid for a full week.
Although there is only one mandatory requirement for Raid access — the Raid Assignment — we have a couple of additional tips prior to infiltration:
1. Warm up with Special Ops missions. Get familiar with how agents fight against you, how Special Ops Kits work, and the general strategies for completing a Special Ops run through its shorter missions. Completing them and earning Stars give you some permanent rewards as well, making this practice worth your time.
2. Tier up those Kits. Because Raids are part of Special Ops, it uses the Kit system. Having a high-Tier Kit means accessing those additional passive and active benefits during a Raid, increasing your options for survival and progression through it.
