Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 Reloaded Update

Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 Reloaded Update Rebalances Weapons, Patch Notes Exposed

In a move that had been teased by Activision and Infinity Ward for the past week or two, this week saw the release of the Season 2 Reloaded update for both Calls of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone.

There have been recent rumors of a new map, more game types, and other enhancements; however, like with any significant update, the update also included a new set of weapon rebalances. All the changes to guns, attachments, equipment, and more were outlined in a set of patch notes released alongside the weapon balancing adjustments.

Although such changes do not constitute the vast majority of Season 2 Reloaded, they warrant a significant portion of the patch notes. The patch notes for the updated weapon balance are provided below.
