Players are finally hopping into Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 but where is the Battle Pass for the game?

Battle Passes give players something to work towards in multiplayer games and Call of Duty Battle Passes are usually full of skins and weapon blueprints that players want to unlock.

However, players hopping into MW2’s multiplayer have found that there is no Battle Pass yet. This is especially concerning for players who got free Tier skips for pre-ordering the Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition.

Don’t worry though, we’ve got the answer to where the Battle Pass is as well as when it will arrive!

Modern Warfare 2

MW2 Battle Pass Season 1 Release Date

The first MW2 Battle Pass will arrive on November 16, 2022, to coincide with the launch of Season 1 of Modern Warfare 2 and the Warzone 2.0 release date.

This is considerably earlier than the previous 2 Call of Duty titles Vanguard and Cold War, which had their Season 1 and Battle Pass release in December.

The MW2 Battle Pass will release alongside Season 1 in

Until that date, there will be no Battle Pass in Modern Warfare 2 for players to level up.

However, players can already start grinding to unlock the amazing new MW2 Mastery Camos!

MW2 Battle Pass Price / Cost

The price of the MW2 Battle Pass has not yet been revealed. However, it will highly likely follow the same pricing structure as previous Call of Duty titles.

History suggests there will be a basic version of the Battle Pass costing 1000 CoD Points / $10 and a bundle allowing you to skip tiers at 2,400 COD Points / $20.


  • Full Battle Pass: 1,000 COD Points / $10
  • Battle Pass Bundle (skips first 20 levels): 2,400 COD Points / $20

Cold War:

MW2 Battle Pass Rewards

Previous Call of Duty Battle Passes have provided various rewards including:

  • Operator Skins
  • Vehicle Skins
  • Blueprints
  • Weapons
  • Emblems
  • COD Points (1300 in previous cases)

The exact rewards for the Season 1 MW2 Battle Pass are expected in the coming days and will be updated here.

How Long Will the Season 1 MW2 Battle Pass Last?

The MW2 Battle Pass will last for the entirety of the season. For Season 1 this is likely to be approximately 70 days long.

The duration of Season 1 in the last 3 Call of Duty titles has been between 67 and 70 days.

Therefore, we expect an end date towards the end of January 2023.
