As Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded comes to an end, fans are wondering when exactly MW3 Season 2 starts.

Unlike previous midseason updates in recent Call of Duty titles, MW3 Season 1 Reloaded delivered a few highly anticipated additions to multiplayer, including new map, Rio, a new meta SMG, and Ranked Play. Despite a slight Ranked Play delay, the update ultimately delivered content that had fans rushing to play MW3 even after the holiday break. With so many great features in Season 1 Reloaded, fans' expectations for MW3 Season 2 just got higher.

So, how much longer do players have to wait before they can explore MW3 Season 2?

Does My MW3 Ranked Play Rank Reset in Season 2? Answered

Yes, your MW3 Ranked Play rank resets in Season 2, except not all players will fall down to Bronze again. Instead, you will get demoted three Skill Divisions, so as long as you end MW3 Season 1 Reloaded in Diamond or higher, you will not have to grind your way out of the lowest tier for a second time. Diamond I is the highest Skill Division a person can start with in a new MW3 season.

Your numeral rank, on the other hand, does not reset. Everyone started with Rank 1 in MW3 Season 1 Reloaded, and continued to climb the ranks based on how many wins you secured. Whatever rank you achieved in the first three weeks on MW3 Ranked Play will remain and continue to increase in the next season.
