New weapons

In the Warzone 2 update for season 2 Activision has confirmed six new weapons and guns. There are three available in the season 2 Battle Pass for free, one available during the launch window for the Path of the Ronin Event (ends March 24), and the final two are coming later in the second season.

  • ISO Hemlock Assault Rifle 
  • Dual Kodachi melee weapon 
  • KV Broadside Shotgun
  • Crossbow
  • Shuriken lethal equipment 
  • Tempus Torrent Marksman Rifle 

New Operator

The Warzone 2 update has seen Ronin return in Season 2. First appearing in the third season of the first Warzone, it's been some time since we've seen his friendly face. 

Ronin was forced to make the jump from the first to the second Warzone due to his ties with the map Verdansk. Some of his unlockable challenges are tied to this fictional city meaning that once this map was switched out of the first Warzone he became impossible to complete.  

New map

The Resurgence game mode is back with the Warzone 2 update for season 2. This time it's set on Ashika Island, off the coast of Japan. This classic game mode allows teammates to respawn as long as there is still one ally still alive. As this new island is smaller than the previous map it's better equipped to provide a fast-paced alternative to Warzone's traditional battle royale.

The new feature 'Restore Honor' added in season 2, lets players drop a dog tag after their first death in a game. If this is collected by yourself or a teammate then you are rewarded with cash and a single UAV ping that can reveal supply boxes and enemies. 

New event

The Path of Ronin event began on season 2's launch and according to the in-game timer is set to finish on March 24. This event has seven challenges spread across Warzone 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remake that are based on the Seven Virtues of Bushido: Compassion, Courage, Honor, Integrity, Loyalty, Respect, and Sincerity. All but Loyalty and Respect are currently playable, the last two become active on February 28.
