Can You Play Warzone 2.0 Without Modern Warfare 2

Warzone 2.0 and Season 1 Battle Pass

Warzone 2.0 uses the same mechanics and engine as Modern Warfare 2. The client launcher is also the same for both titles. However, MW2 is a paid game while Warzone 2.0 is announced as a free-to-play title. So you don’t need Modern Warfare 2 to play Warzone 2.0. You will also get to try the new DMZ mode along with Warzone 2.0. You can download the MW2 launcher and you are good to go.

Talking about the Battle Pass, both games will share the same battle pass progression. MW2’s first battle pass will launch along with the release of Warzone 2.0. So if you already own Modern Warfare 2, you will have an easier time unlocking Battle Pass rewards.
