Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s second season has only just begun, but the leaks surrounding its supposed Battle Royale are coming thick and fast. A Battle Royale mode has yet to be officially confirmed by Activision or Infinity Ward, but it’s been rumoured for a long time. With the launch of the game’s second season yesterday (Feb 11), there’s been more clues than ever that it’s coming – and it doesn’t end there.
The first “official” hint that BR is headed our way comes straight from a new in-game cinematic that came with the Season Two update. As you can see in the tweet below, it definitely looks like a reference to a BR mode.
Along with this supposed clue comes a new “leak” over on Reddit, where a now-deleted user claims to have received a picture of a campaign advert for CoD Battle Royale.
The deleted post, which contained the following image, simply stated: “I found this image online. Not sure what it is. Possibly Battle Royale.”
(Thanks, CharlieINTEL for the screen-grab!)
Whether or not this “Warzone” image is legit remains to be seen, but it’s potentially pretty telling that the original Reddit user has now not only deleted the post, but also their account.
Aside from the size of the map, Senescallo also unearthed a lot of other information, including map names and changes to game features. One of these is apparently a change to how a user can respawn.
Senescallo said at the time: “Respawn Tokens can be looted. After one use, Respawn Tokens are disabled for the player. To respawn a teammate, obtain a Respawn Token, then drop their body near an Ambulance. Once the body is dropped at the Ambulance, the player will enter the Gulag queue for a chance to win a 1v1 and respawn into the match.
“At some point during the match, the Gulag will be closed and no longer usable, thus preventing respawns. Once a player has respawned, they must locate and activate a Mobile Armory to retrieve their loadout.”
There’s also “Missions” according to the source code. Senescallo writes: “Battle Royale features Missions which can be looted via finding tablets. Only one Mission can be active for a Squad at a time.”
You can check out the post in full right here, but as always, take the rumours with a pinch of salt until we hear otherwise.
