Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 arrives on November 10, but fans can look forward to even more content with the Season 1 update. Here’s everything we know about Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 including its expected start date and content, as well as the leaked weapons.
Following a successful beta period, Call of Duty players can’t wait to dive into Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer. Featuring all 16 of MW2 2009’s launch maps and highly requested changes, hype for the latest entry is at an all-time high.
Players will be treated to even more content not long after Modern Warfare 3’s launch, as the Season 1 update has been announced. This is where the devs add new Battle Passes, weapons, Operators, and more.
From the expected start date to the content, here’s what we know about Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 so far.
Expected Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 release date
Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 will arrive in December 2023, and while the devs haven’t revealed an exact date, we expect it to arrive on Wednesday, December 6.
This is when Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone Season 6 wraps up and follows the trend of the recent releases.

Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 content
Expect more Zombies content in Modern Warfare 3 Season 1.
We expect Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 to bring much the same content as Modern Warfare 2’s seasons including the first Battle Pass, new weapons, Operators, maps, weapon balance changes, new Zombies content, and more.
Some of this has already been confirmed, with the devs revealing that six 6v6 maps will be arriving throughout Seasons 1 and 2. It’s likely that there will be three maps in each season but we’ll have to wait and see what Sledgehammer have planned.
While separate from Modern Warfare 3, the first season will also introduce the next generation of Warzone. Taking place on the brand-new Urzikstan map, this update for Warzone will bring all of Modern Warfare 3’s content and some of its mechanics to the battle royale.
Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 leaked weapons
Although the full slate of content for Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 hasn’t been revealed, leaker ‘el_bobberto’ claims to have revealed five new weapons coming during the season. Three of these will reportedly arrive at launch, while the others are likely to feature in the Reloaded update.
Check out all of the leaked weapons for Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 below:
- RAM-7 (AR)
