Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 will be released on April 12, 2023, right after the end of Season 2 Reloaded. The official Call of Duty Twitter account recently confirmed the return of the Intervention Sniper Rifle in the upcoming season and also showed off some footage of a new 6v6 map set overnight.
Infinity Ward invited FaZe Dirty to test out the new Season 3 weapon. The sniper rifle is called the FJX Imperium but it looks a lot like the Intervention from the original Modern Warfare 2 game, which released in 2009.
What FaZe Dirty has to say about FJX Imperium in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
The Intervention sniper rifle was recently leaked by data miners, which suggests that it will be added to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 in future seasons. It has now been confirmed that the weapon will arrive in Season 3 under a new name.
It has not been revealed how the early sniper rifle will be available to players, but it will most likely be a free reward in the Season 3 Battle Pass. Additionally, players can assume that it will be available for purchase as part of special bundles in the store (via COD points) once the new season begins.
FaZe Dirty had this to say about the new weapon:
“It’s like nostalgic mixed with new, powerful. The feel, the way it encompasses feels really good.”
From the teaser, the FJX Imperium seems to have fast ADS and reload speed compared to other snipers in the game. If it is as powerful as it originally was, the chance that it will be able to one-hit removal in Warzone 2 it is likely.
A new 6v6 nightly multiplayer map, called “Pelayo’s Lighthouse”, was also teased. It appears to be a standard map with a dark and rainy setting covered in dense fog that will force players to fight at close range.
He roadmap for season 3 it will soon be revealed by the developers. It will confirm all the upcoming content for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, including other weapons, maps, and more.
Season 2 Reloaded is currently available on all platforms including PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
