Modern Warfare 2 has a ton of new content on the way, with the huge Season 2 update just around the corner. With a whole new game mode added in the mid-season, expectations are high, but new weapons are just the beginning.
Season 1 Reloaded is now upon us, which means that the first raid, Atomgrad is live. Here's everything you need to know about how to access it and what you'll need to do to ensure you're prepared for the challenge.
How to Unlock Atomgrad Raid in Modern Warfare 2
There are a few different ways to unlock the new mode in the latest Call of Duty, but you'll first need to own the full version of Modern Warfare 2. You won't need the Vault Edition, but if you only own Warzone 2 you, unfortunately, won't be able to access raids.
Here's how to unlock Atomgrad in Modern Warfare 2:
- Complete a specific Daily Challenge either in Multiplayer or Special Ops.
- Place within the top 20 in any Warzone 2.0 Battle Royale Playlist.
- In DMZ, use the final extract helicopter with at least $30,000 in Cash.
Depending on the daily challenge, a top 20 Warzone finish is probably your easiest option to unlock the raid. You'll then be able to use your Battle Royale trio to head into the mission.
How to prepare for Atomgrad
Modern Warfare 2 Raids will be a challenge for any player, but there are some easy things you can do to make sure you're all set. Here's what the Call of Duty Blog recommends:
1. Warm up with Special Ops missions. Get familiar with how agents fight against you, how Special Ops Kits work, and the general strategies for completing a Special Ops run through its shorter missions. Completing them and earning Stars give you some permanent rewards as well, making this practice worth your time.
2. Tier up those Kits. Because Raids are part of Special Ops, it uses the Kit system. Having a high-Tier Kit means accessing those additional passive and active benefits during a Raid, increasing your options for survival and progression through it.
With all this information, you should be more than prepared for Atomgrad in Modern Warfare 2. Stay tuned for a full guide on how to beat the Raid as easily as possible.
