The Warzone2 update has seen Ronin return in Season 2. First appearing in the third season of the first Warzoneit’s been some time since we’ve seen his friendly face.
Ronin was forced to make the jump from the first to the second Warzone due to his ties with the map Verdansk. Some of his unlockable challenges are tied to this fictional city meaning that once this map was switched out of the first Warzone he became impossible to complete.
The Resurgence game mode is back with the Warzone2 update for season 2. This time it’s set on Ashika Island, off the coast of Japan. This classic game mode allows teammates to respawn as long as there is still one ally still alive. As this new island is smaller than the previous map it’s better equipped to provide a fast-paced alternative to Warzone’s traditional battle royale.
The new feature ‘Restore Honor’ added in season 2, lets players drop a dog tag after their first death in a game. If this is collected by yourself or a teammate then you are rewarded with cash and a single UAV ping that can reveal supply boxes and enemies.
The new event in the Warzone2 update see’s Ronin transfer over from the first Warzone.
The Path of Ronin event began on season 2’s launch and according to the in-game timer is set to finish on March 24. This event has seven challenges spread across Warzone2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remake that are based on the Seven Virtues of Bushido: Compassion, Courage, Honor, Integrity, Loyalty, Respect, and Sincerity. All but Loyalty and Respect are currently playable, the last two becoming active on February 28.
