UPDATE 12/9/22: Activision has announced that Season 01 Reloaded, the midseason update for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare II, will arrive on Dec. 14 at 1 p.m. ET, following a patch to both games.
Original story: Now that we're weeks into the inaugural season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, it is perhaps no surprise that many are wondering just when the Season 1 Reloaded update will drop.
A staple of the Call of Duty content calendar, Reloaded — commonly referred to as the mid-season update — has players excited to see just what the dev team has in store to shake things up. In the past these updates have provided new content, bug fixes, weapon balancing and more. Here's a breakdown of the latest details regarding the Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded release date.
Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded Release Date: When is it?
Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded is expected to launch on Dec. 14, 2022. If the update follows previous releases, it will probably drop at around 1 p.m. ET.
Although Activision has yet to officially pinpoint Dec. 14 as the big launch date, it is heavily expected to be the target date considering it is the midway point for the whole affair. The devs mentioned in a recent blog post that the Call of Duty Endowment (C.O.D.E.) Bowl III will be "taking place right after the Season 01 mid-season update Dec. 15 to 18 in Raleigh, North Carolina."
Additionally, Dec. 14 lands on a Wednesday, which is when most major Call of Duty updates have typically arrived during seasons.
As far as content goes, there are several key additions that Infinity Ward has already teased to be coming in the Season 1 Reloaded update. Perhaps the headliner is the release of Shipment in MW2 multiplayer, which should be a perfect map for camo grinders, as well as those who enjoy chaotic, close-range combat. Also set to make its multiplayer and Warzone 2 debut during Season 1 Reloaded will be the Chimera assault rifle, which is said to feature a built-in suppressor and be reminiscent of the Honey Badger from Call of Duty: Ghosts (2013). Lastly, Season 1 Reloaded will add the first-ever Raid to MW2, and Danish Elite Special Forces soldier Klaus and Task Force 141’s Gaz will be featured in new operator bundles.
