Modern Warfare & Warzone's sixth season begins today, with Haunting of Verdansk to follow

Season six of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone starts today, September 29th, and brings with it a new fast-travel system, new modes, free multiplayer maps, and an upcoming Halloween event.

There's a lot of new season details which Infinity Ward has covered in full over on the game's site. The new subway system, the "Metro," can take you to stations around the map but it won't move if there's "conflict aboard," nor will it take you outside the safe area in Battle Royale. You can still fight in the station itself, it's just the subway which is a little stricter about it. Warzone's also getting a limited-time mode with Armoured Royale, where every squad is armed with a Cargo Truck. Once your truck is gone, so is your ability to respawn back into the fight. There's also a new weapon rotation with six common, ten uncommon, 13 rare, 18 epic and 24 legendary variants.

Modern Warfare's getting four free multiplayer maps — Station (gunfight), Broadcast (core modes 6v6), Mialstor Tank Factory (core modes 6v6 and 10v10), and Verdansk Riverside (ground war) — as well as new modes, trials, and challenges, including Killstreak Confirmed, HQ: Firefight and Nine Trials to Explore. The season six Battle Pass system, meanwhile, is billed as "one of the most unique collections of content yet," with 20 tiers of free content including weapon blueprints, cosmetics, and War Tracks. Those free tiers also offer two new weapons: the SP-R208 marksman rifle and the AS-VAL assault rifle.

Coming up next month, meanwhile, is the Haunting of Verdansk seasonal event, running from October 20th to November 3rd with limited time modes, rewards, and, as part of the Battle Pass, pet bat Edward, who has his own Finishing Move.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
