Confused about what to expect? Here’s a full breakdown of what Raids are and how to play them in MW2!

What Will Happen in Raid Episode 3?

In Raid Episode 3, players Price, Farah, and Alex push deeper into the Soviet base, descending into old train tunnels and electrically charged waters. With Hadir and the missing warhead still on the loose, every minute counts.

The ending of Raid Episode 2 reveals that not only is Modern Warfare’s Alex Keller alive, but he was sent to discuss an alliance with Task Force 141 by Farah’s brother Hadir.

Hadir, now a commander of Al-Qatala, has taken control of a nuclear warhead that he intends to use against the Russians. As for whether he’ll be an ally or an enemy in Episode 3, we’ll have to wait and see.

Recently, new leaked images for Raid Episode 3 reveal that we may be returning to the Russian bunker from the Black Ops Cold War mission ‘Desperate Measures’.

However, it could simply be a case of re-used assets present in the upcoming Raid, which is also set to have Russia as a central player.

The first three Raid episodes are available to play in MW2 now – with Raid Assignments no longer required as of Season 2 Reloaded. Grab your squad and hop in to prepare for what’s to come in later seasons..
