Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 3 drops next week with plenty of reasons for fans to be excited.

Despite significant changes to the Battle Royale in Season 2, Warzone 2 is still a far cry from the original Warzone. Al Mazrah and Ashika Island do not compare to the popularity and competitiveness of Verdansk and Rebirth Island. Plus, rampant hackers, bugs, and audio issues make the game virtually unplayable.

Season 3 has more changes and new content in store to hopefully bring the Battle Royale out of its current state. Here's a breakdown of all the positive additions coming to Warzone 2's upcoming update.

Warzone 2 Season 3: 5 Reasons to be Excited

1. FJX Imperium Sniper

The iconic Intervention Sniper, known as the FJX Imperium in Warzone 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, is coming to the Battle Royale. Players will be able to unlock the weapon for free in the Season 3 Battle Pass. The sniper will hopefully diversify the current Warzone 2 meta and bring back some insane quick-scope clips.

2. Warzone 2 Ranked

Ranked Play makes its Warzone 2 debut in Season 3. After the success of MW2 Ranked, players can expect a comprehensive system with different Skill Divisions, Ranks, and rewards. There should also be a leaderboard featuring the world's top Warzone 2 players. Adding a new competitive layer to Warzone 2 games will help bring some much-needed passion and excitement to ordinary matches.

3. Plunder

Plunder, originally seen in Warzone's 2020 launch, is coming to Warzone 2 Season 3. The game mode requires players to collect as much cash as possible by looting crates, killing enemies, and completing contracts. The goal is to have the most money in the lobby by the end of the game. Plunder will give players a fun mode to explore if they want a break from the traditional Battle Royale or Resurgence.

4. New Operators

Operators Alejandro and Valeria will arrive in Season 3. The two characters gained popularity in the MW2 Campaign. Alejandro and Valeria have a complicated history that often puts them on opposite sides. Now, players will be able to obtain the fan-favorite Campaign characters as Operators.

5. New Battle Pass

A new season means a new Battle Pass. Players will have the next couple of months to explore and unlock 100 tiers of rewards, including weapons, Operators, and cosmetics. The highly anticipated FJX Imperium Sniper will be the must-have addition in the latest Battle Pass.
