Modern Warfare 2 is the latest installment within the iconic franchise, and with the game now fully released, players are wondering when the Ranked game mode is coming.

Switching onto your competitive side during a game of COD is always one of the best ways to prove your worth, and we're going to runover all you need to know regarding Ranked Play in Warzone 2.

All Ranks In Warzone 2 Rank -Explained

Warzone 2 is going to be a change of pace for a lot of players, who were perhaps tired of the same old gameplay, without a real incentive.

This is where ranked comes into play, and Call of Duty has outlined all of the ranks going to be present within the game, and how players will be able to obtain these ranks.

The Basics

Ranked Play is the official competitive Warzone™ 2.0 Battle Royale experience. Players must be at least Level 45 to access Ranked Play.

With the launch of Ranked Play (BETA) in Season 03 Reloaded of Warzone™ 2.0, our goal is to deliver a competitive and fair system of play, all while striving to ensure a consistent experience across all Battle Royale modes.

To achieve this, the Ranked Play (BETA) will have initial gameplay restrictions in order to gather crucial feedback and data for the full launch of Ranked Play in Season 04, and beyond.

With that said, here is a preview of what you can expect for the Ranked Play (BETA) until the full  Warzone™ 2.0 Patch Notes drop next week:

  • Party Size: Trios
  • Map: Al Mazrah
  • Game Mode: Battle Royale
  • Public Event restrictions (e.g. No Firesales)
  • Vehicle restrictions (e.g. No Heavy Choppers)
  • Restricted gameplay elements (e.g. no multi-circles, changes to redeploy mechanics)
  • Buy Station Inventory Adjustments
  • No flinging rocks at people in the Gulag, because that is just mean

Furthermore, Ranked Play in Warzone 2.0 uses a similar ranking system to that in Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II multiplayer (learn more about it here).

There are seven standard Skill Divisions, with all players beginning at Bronze I at the start of Season 03 Reloaded. Because this is being launched at mid-season, this first Ranked Play season will be shorter than all subsequent seasons.

Players will earn a Skill Rating (SR) based on match performance, specifically:

  • Placement (e.g., 1st, 2nd, 20th)
  • Kills
  • Assists
  • Kills by your squad.

The SR earned for Kills, Assists and Squad Kills is increased based on the number of squads remaining:

  • 21+ Squads Remaining: +5 SR per Elimination/Assist, +2 SR per Squadmate Elimination
  • 3–20 Squads Remaining: +7 SR per Elimination/Assist, +3 SR per Squadmate Elimination
  • 1–3 Squads Remaining: +15 SR per Elimination/Assist, +7 SR per Squadmate Elimination
