There is a lot to Season 05 of 2022/23’s Call of Duty collection, including a whopping 5 operators across Battle Pass and BlackCell.

Deep Black

Returning in Season 05 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone is Commander Graves, and he’s bringing a whole squad of new recruits with him. A total of five fresh operators, a first according to Activision, will be collectively included within Battle Pass and BlackCell.

What’s BlackCell? Well, it’s something new for the franchise, and looks like it’ll effectively be a new tier of content for Seasons. Aside from the operator mentioned above, fans will also find exclusive content like character and vehicle skins, and weapon blueprints. There’s also an upgrade option, if you already have Battle Pass.

The new Season also packs in a bunch of new bundle packs, which include everything from skins to more new characters. And yes, some of those are of the ‘celebrity’ variety. The Season is officially out right now for all versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0.

Scroll down for the video look at what’s new, and a full debrief on the contents thereof. Want more? Click here for the Call of Duty blog.
