The MW3 Season 2 countdown is officially on as fans await the new weapons and multiplayer maps coming in the next major update to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Although MW3 Season 1 Reloaded only lasted a few weeks, the midseason update was an overall success for multiplayer fans. Rio finally joined the map rotation, and after a slight delay, Ranked Play launched. The climb from Bronze to Top 250 is an addicting, frustrating grind, but easily the most competitive playlist in MW3 since its release back in November 2023. Now, fans must get ready to start their progression all over again once MW3 Season 2 launches.

To prepare for all the new content in MW3, players should check out our countdown to know exactly when Season 2 launches.

The MW3 Season 2 countdown is ticking down until the next major Call of Duty update releases on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024. Along with a new Battle Pass, MW3 Season 2 features two new weapons and three fresh 6v6 maps at launch.

At the time of writing, there are less than three days until MW3 Season 2 drops. The exciting in-game additions might get all the publicity, but the new season also includes some must-have cosmetics and rewards. From the Rick Grimes Operator to the Tier 100 Ghost Operator, Season 2 is coming with plenty of S-Tier skins, Weapon Camos, and more.

What Time Does MW3 Season 2 Go Live?

MW3 Season 2 goes live at 12 p.m. ET. Earlier in the day, fans will be able to pre-load the major update onto their PC or console so they can explore Season 2 as soon as it drops. We expect the file size to be anywhere from 25-35GB.

Warzone Season 2 goes live at the same time.

Is Rio Coming to MW3 Ranked Play in Season 2?

As of now, it is unknown if Rio is coming to MW3 Ranked Play in Season 2. Multiple sources in the Call of Duty League have confirmed Rio is being tested as a possible addition to the competitive map pool. If the map gets added, then expect to see it enter Ranked Play quickly after.
