On December 3rd, 2019, Infinity Ward and Activision will release Season 1 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s battle pass system. Today, on November 26th, 2019, they released the official intel on Snapchat via the special metal cards they sent out to some creators earlier this year.
If you are over rank 55, your rank will be reset to 55 and you will be able to grind 100 levels capping at level 155. You will earn new rewards for your efforts. There will be a premium pass available for purchase in addition to the free battle pass that everyone will have access to. The premium tiers will have additional content that unlocks as you level up along side the free tiers.
How The Rank Reset Works
Activision published an article on their official website on November 27th, 2019 that listed information about how the rank reset will go down. One section stood out as important to communicate to everyone:
On December 3, your Officer Rank achieved up until the start of Season 1 will be locked and memorialized with all the ribbons and final Officer Rank you have earned.https://blog.activision.com/call-of-duty/2019-11/Officer-Rank-Refresh
That, as well as the two weapon blueprints you may have unlocked for ranking up prior to Season 1 (the Hush at Rank 56, and O.G. at Rank 155 that D-Day is carrying in the previous image), should act as impressive bragging rights to your friends and the greater Call of Duty community!https://blog.activision.com/call-of-duty/2019-11/Officer-Rank-Refresh
Players will be able to earn 100 new different ribbons through new challenges, as well as a new and animated emblem.
All the things you’ve earned in the ranks 1-55, as well as your mission progress, blueprint weapons, and combat record stats, will be carried over.
If you haven’t reached rank 55 by December 3rd, 2019, you’ll have to reach 55 before entering the Battle Pass’ Season 1 officer ranks (56-155).
MORE FREE MODERN WARFARE CONTENT FOR EVERYONE!
Listed in the battle pass are a bunch of maps, game modes, special ops missions and a couple of new weapons! There has been controversy since the release of Modern Warfare in the community over many of the gameplay decisions the Activision/Infinity Ward team have made. Alternatively, the community is rejoicing and applauding the team for quickly releasing tons of free additional downloadable content.
Here is a list of all the goodies coming starting on December 3rd:
New Modern Warfare Maps!
New Multiplayer Maps:
Crash, Vacant, and Shipment will all join the 6v6 rotations during the 1st season of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle pass.
New Ground War Map:
Port will join the Ground War map rotations during the first season of the battle pass.
New 2v2 Gunfight Maps:
Cargo, Atrium, and more — we’ve seen reports that shipment will also be a 2v2 Gunfight map.
New Modes, Special Ops, and Weapons!
During the first season of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle pass we will see new game modes, new special ops experiences, and new weapons!
New Multiplayer Modes:
Reinforce, Gunfight OSP, Infected are 3 of the new multiplayer game modes coming to Call of Duty Modern Warfare during for the Season 1 Battle Pass.
New Special Ops Experiences:
Bomb Squad, Grounded, Pitch Black, Just Reward, and more will be released for the Special Ops mode of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare!
New Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Weapons!
On December 3rd, 2019, all players across all platforms will be able to earn access to the two new weapons, the RAM-7 and HOLGER-26, at no additional cost to them. We assume they will be unlocked in the free tier section of the battle pass.
Both of these weapons seem to be reboots of previous Call of Duty: Modern Warfare guns.
The RAM-7 is an assault rifle and looks a lot like the TAR-21 from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
The HOLGER-26 is a light machine gun and seems to be the reboot of the MG-36 from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
