Will Modern Warfare 2 have ranked play?
Treyarch has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 would be awarded Ranked Play after initially being teased during the Call of Duty Next event.
The studio behind the Black Ops series announced that they would be collaborating with their partners to bring the long-rumored Ranked Play mode to Modern Warfare 2, confirming leaks that had been circulated prior to the game's release.
The release date for Modern Warfare 2 is ranked.
The developers of Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 have announced that Ranked Play would be released on February 15th.
Treyarch has confirmed that Ranked Play will be released on the day of the update and not later on during Modern Warfare 2 Season 2.
Modern Warfare 2 enthusiasts who want to advance are coming to an end. At the moment, players may still enjoy the CDL Moshpit mode to scratch their competitive appetite.
Modern Warfare 2's Play Rankings and Rewards
The Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 blog explains what players may expect from Ranked Play in 2023.
The top 250 will be ranked in order of skill divisions, from the lowest Bronze Division to the very highest with the Iridescent Division.
“Your name will be displayed on a special Top 250 leaderboard” if you make it past Iridescent into the Top 250.
Modern Warfare 2 players will have a Skill Rating, otherwise known as SR, which will determine your Skill Division, so that's the number you'll want to see increase after each match.
Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play will include a new set of ranks, separate from SR or Skill Divisions. This will allow players to progress from Ranks 1 to 50, unlike SR.
Every player will start at Rank 1 and Every 5 Ranks will update the player's Rank icon and "award a set of exclusive Ranked Play rewards, including Skins at Rank 5 and 50."
Players may expect to earn Skill Division Skins based on their highest ranking in a given season. The first time you finish in the Gold Division or above will receive an exclusive one-time reward.
The developers have yet to reveal all of the names for the Ranked Play Division as well as all of the rewards, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more information becomes available.
