As part of the midseason update, Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play will be available for Season 2 according to the developers. Treyarch also confirmed that Ranked Play will be available on the February 15 launch day.

Weapons from Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 have been leaked.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 Season 2 may include the Crossbow and Vepr-12 Shotgun, according to data mining and a new mechanic.

The Crossbow has appeared in several recent Call of Duty games and was fully functional during the campaign, so it would not be a surprise if it were introduced. The semi-automatic Vepr-12 has been theorized because Private Matches briefly showed unreleased Shotgun muzzles, and one directly matched the Vepr-12.

The game mode for Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 has been leaked.

According to data mining leaks, the fan-favorite Gun Game, Gunfight, and Cranked modes will debut during Season 2.

The Gun Game is a classic Call of Duty party game that involves players in a free-for-all game in which players receive a new weapon for every kill. The first player to get a kill with every weapon, usually ending in something unique like a crossbow or ballistic knife, wins.

Gunfight is a 2v2 game that follows a round format, usually taking place on small maps where the players have the same weapon and equipment. Eliminating the opponents or capturing the flag secures the round, and the first person to win six rounds wins.

Gunfight would be included in Modern Warfare 2 after the launch, and if this is to be believed, it might arrive during Season 2.

Along with Warzone's Plunder mode, the same leaker revealed a Cranked icon that appears to be a game in which players have increased movement speed after each kill but must keep getting kills until the timer expires or they explode.

Hardcore Mode in Modern Warfare 2 Season 2

A fully-fledged Hardcore Mode will be added in Modern Warfare 2, with players dissatisfied with the presence of Tier 1 in the game.

Tier 1 resembled the Realism mode found in Modern Warfare 2019, while Hardcore Mode will retain its original identity from previous CoD titles.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 Castle map suggested by a leak

Leaks revealing key art for Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 have convinced players that the classic Castle map might be included with the update. Castle first appeared in World at War and most recently in Vanguard less than a year ago.

The background of this leaked Season 2 illustration depicts a Japanese fortress, but it doesn't quite resemble the Castle from World at War. We'll just have to wait and see whether Infinity Ward decides to bring back a Treyarch classic.

Ronin Operator for Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 has been leaked.

Ronin might be returning in Modern Warfare 2 as leaks revealed that he might be the season's main operator. So if the leak turns out to be true, Ronin is bound to arrive.

Ronin falls into this category, as have Call of Duty followers.
