"BlackCell" Premium Battle Pass Incoming for Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2 Season 3 for $29.99

Activision will roll out the BlackCell premium Battle Pass for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 in Season 3, and will cost $29.99.

I really thought MW2 was the change we needed but around halfway through season one, those rose tinted glasses fell off and it’s just a shell of a game.

The campaign was great, albeit very short, but the ongoing support has been questionable at best with reused characters from Warzone 1.0 being sold again in the last battle pass.

$29.99 for a battle pass is disgusting and as soon as people give in to this, they’ll make this the standard going forward. Activision Blizzard is bad enough under Bobby Kotick, imagine the squeezing they’ll do under Phil and Bobby together - yikes.

This is ridiculous. It's also ridiculous that they will wall these skins off inside every iteration of Warzone. I really like the ROZE skin from MW 2019. Now she is an operator in this years but looks very vanilla with slight color accents. This is a terrible practice.

There's the regular battle pass for $10 and there's this. Like, man, how greedy can you get? I really hope people don't buy this or else we'll see premium Battle Passes everywhere.

MW3 shouldn’t leave Modern Warfare 2’s overlooked playlist behind

Modern Warfare 3 is set to be one of the biggest COD games yet features-wise, but it shouldn't leave out one of the best MW2 game modes in the rear view mirror.

I hope all the assholes who buy these get stuck in lobbies with each other. I skipped new COD games for a long time and a short time with MW2 convinced me to go back to on a hiatus.

With the skill-based matchmaking (engagement-based would be more accurate), I imagine this will make the game even more miserable for most players when the matchmaking has decided it's time for a tough lobby.

I played the OG MW2 recently on the Series X and it's disheartening how much more fun it is. I don't even care about the balance issues anymore. lol

My friends dont play with me anymore i am former pro player and i even streamed on MLG for RX gaming the team i played for... My KD is always high 5-6kd my friends who i went to school with are not good wht so ever so with SBMM kicking in its always putting us in TOP TIER lobbys and they cant hang now they dont even tell me when they getting on LOL

I recently started playing OG MW2 again and I'm having a blast. Feels like I'm in high school again.

Welcome to COD under MS. It's all downhill from here, they're going to be looking to make that $68B back as fast as possible, at any expense to the player.

StarkR3ality45d ago

The deal hasn't even closed yet you pleb. CoD has been doing stuff like this since the loot boxes in WWII.

Nice try though pal.

Activision has never needed Microsoft or anybody for that matter to act like greedy bastards

PunksOnN4G44d ago

why did my 2nd comment about SBMM get downvited LOL?? Do we have people who Enjoy trash SBMM tbh make sense it caters to LOW KD players and u will never get better playing with the same trahs everyday LOL

andy8545d ago

Probably gonna see more of this BS once the deal is fully done..Gotta recoup that 70B.

Jin_Sakai45d ago (Edited 45d ago )

Look at Minecraft. The game hasn’t went anywhere since Microsoft bought them. No 4K, no 120fps, no graphics pack, and no Ray Tracing. Just some new biomes, mobs, and more skins as usual.

Same could be said about Rare. Who knows what will happen to Activision once they’re under Microsoft’s roof. We can all take a good guess though.

PunksOnN4G45d ago

TBH they did update it by accident then they pulled the update down on xsx and xss i remeber the XSX version having ray tracing but the S did not. Then after people seen that it was updated it was removed that same day

peppeaccardo45d ago

No way !!! Nobody wouild think they would monetize on items that weak asses will use to get advantage during multiplayer action !!! I would never think they would do that ... I mean is a free to play game after all ! /S
Wait once M$ will put their greasy hands all over Activizion and you will see what awaits the "lucky" ones who will play this slot machine of a game. Sooooo Lame !

They way it works is you give them money and more money and more money.

anast44d ago

It's a true phenomenon that people haven't figured this out yet.
