Fans of previous seasons may recall Raid episodes involving other characters from the story, so it’s no surprise that Season 3 will follow suit. In addition to the new Raid episode centered around Alejandro and Valeria, players can look forward to a brand new 6v6 map and an arsenal of new weapons.
A recent video showcases one of these new weapons: the FJX Imperium sniper rifle, also known as the Intervention. With its sleek design and deadly precision, the FJX Imperium is poised to be a favorite among sharpshooters in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.
On top of these exciting additions, Activision has revealed several updates coming to the Ricochet anti-cheat system in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 during Season 3. These anti-cheat updates aim to provide a more fair gameplay experience by bolstering protection against cheaters and third-party tools.
A new Call of Duty blog post details significant updates to the Ricochet anti-cheat system for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 Season 3. Team Ricochet will implement a zero-tolerance policy for cheating by banning all players caught cheating, purging banned accounts from the Ranked Play top 150, and adjusting Skill Rating for players who frequently played with and benefited from cheaters. Furthermore, a new Replay Investigation tool will be introduced in Season 3, allowing Team Ricochet to view automatically captured and stored match data during the investigation process. This replay tool will enable the team to identify and study cheating behavior in all multiplayer modes across Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
Season 3 marks a turning point for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 as highly-requested anti-cheat features are finally being introduced into the game, including hardware detection. With fewer cheaters in the player base, more players can enjoy the new content in Season 3 without worrying about an unfair playing field.
