Fans excited for MW3 Warzone Ranked Play will have to wait a little bit longer.

Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 launched a couple weeks ago with a new Battle Pass, movement and spawn adjustments, and some much-needed fresh maps. Despite the new content, though, there was a noticeable absence in both multiplayer and Battle Royale: Ranked Play.

Ranked Play offers the highest competition in the game. From players looking to make a name for themselves in the Top 250 to fans wondering how they match up against others in their skill division, Ranked Play is the best way to grind competitive Call of Duty. Although MW3 Ranked Play has a confirmed start date, Warzone Ranked Play's release date is a little more uncertain.

So, when can players expect Warzone Ranked Play in MW3?

Here's When Warzone Ranked Play is Coming to MW3

Warzone Ranked Play is likely coming to MW3 sometime in Season 2, set to launch in February 2024. Unfortunately, the competitive playlist will not be available to play in Warzone Season 1. Instead, fans will have to continue playing Urzikstan without much incentive other than exploring the new map.

Beyond confirming its arrival in 2024, Activision has been fairly silent on Warzone Ranked Play. Based on Al Mazrah Ranked Play, though, we can expect the mode to offer exclusive rewards, including Operators and Weapon Blueprints, to players as they progress through the ranks.

All Warzone Ranks In Order

Here's all the Warzone ranks in order:

  • Bronze I
  • Bronze II
  • Bronze III
  • Silver I
  • Silver II
  • Silver III
  • Gold I
  • Gold II
  • Gold III
  • Platinum I
  • Platinum II
  • Platinum III
  • Diamond I
  • Diamond II
  • Diamond III
  • Crimson I
  • Crimson II
  • Crimson III
  • Iridescent
  • Top 250

If Urzikstan Ranked follows the same format as Al Mazrah Ranked, then players will have to pay a Deployment Fee for each match they enter; the fee increases as your rank increases. To gain back your lost SR, you will need to tally as many kills and assists as you can. Of course, if you secure a win, then you will gain even more SR.
