Multiplayer Leveling And Progression Guide – Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2

The first thing that you need to note is that you won’t be able to level up above Rank 55 before Season 1 of the game begins. Most of your time will be spent on Special Ops, Weapon progression for camos and other items.

The second thing is Military Ranks which include grenades, weapons, perks, lethal and tactical equipment, field upgrades, and kill streaks are locked behind the 55 ranks of the progression system. If you reach the top rank, you will gain access to the following items:

  • Additional weapon loadouts in multiplayer
  • Ability to customize loadouts
  • All weapon platforms including the ability to edit them in Gunsmith
  • Lethal and Tactical equipment
  • Perks, Field Upgrades and Killstreaks

You can do this by completing Special Ops, Multiplayer and completing challenges. There are mainly two types of challenges that reset automatically after a fixed period of time: Daily Challenges and Career Challenges.

These daily challenges are a set of four challenges that are reset after a fixed period of time daily. There are three types of daily challenges: general, weapon and special. You will also unlock a bonus challenge after completing all three daily challenges.

You also have Special Ops challenges that include three daily challenges and one bonus challenge. Completing the first two challenges will only give you XP whereas the third challenge and the bonus challenge will reward you with Special Ops Stars along with XP.

Apart from those daily challenges, you also have career challenges which include a bunch of multiplayer and Special Ops challenges. These challenges can be completed naturally by using a specific weapon or achieving a certain amount of kills. You will receive XP as well as Calling Cards as a reward for your efforts.

Next is Special Ops Missions which can be completed each week to earn Special Ops Stars. Just like in previous games in the franchise, you receive 1 star for completing the mission, 2 stars for completing the mission within 25 minutes and 3 stars for finishing the mission within 15 minutes.

You can earn additional stars by completing the daily challenges, especially the third challenge and the fourth bonus challenge.

The stars that you earn will be mainly counted as Career Stars and Kit Stars with the former being used to unlock additional kit items such as medkits. You can then use your career stars to level up your kits to unlock things like faster loadout item usage, increased armour capacity and more stims.

You can level up your Special Ops Kits to level 10 which will require a lot of stars and completing missions. This can be pretty handy when the raids become available in a future update of the game.

Next is the Weapon Platform which will allow you to level up your weapons and there are over 20 levels available for this platform.

As you progress through 55 ranks, you will be able to unlock more weapons and upgrade them to improve their capabilities.

Each weapon will have its own progression tree which will unlock the weapon-specific attachments as well as universal attachments that can be used on every weapon.

Once you manage to level up your weapon to the top rank, you will get access to weapon tuning which is a part of the advanced Gunsmith customization.

You will be able to tune your attachments such as the underbarrel to further improve its stats and attributes.

For example, you can tweak the weight and length of the Underbarrel to make changes in the movement speed and recoil of your weapon.

If you are a completionist player then you will be interested in the new Camo challenges that will give you access to 180+ unique camos that are available to unlock.

There are likely to be 18 different challenges, each of them having 10 unique camos that you gain access to.

Once you complete the Base Camo Challenges, you will have access to Mastery Camos Challenges which are available only for specific weapons with four unique designs: old, Platinum, Polyatomic, and Orion.

After you have completed the Base Camo challenge for a weapon, you will be able to participate in Gold Camo Challenge which is the first Mastery Camo.

Next are Platnium Camo Challenges which become available after a certain number of Gold Challenges are completed within each category of weapons:

  • Assault Rifles
  • Battle Rifles
  • SMGs
  • LMGs
  • Marksman Rifles
  • Sniper Rifles
  • Sidearms
  • Launchers
  • Melee (Primary and Secondary)

The third is the Polyatomic Camo Challenges which become available after finishing atleast 51 Platinum Mastery Challenges.

Similarly, you also be able to take part in Orion Mastery Camo Challenges after the Polyatomic Camo is unlocked on 51 weapons.

Last but definitely not least are the Weapon Mastery Challenges which are available after completing all the Mastery Camo challenges.

Each Weapon Mastery Challenge will require you to achieve a certain number of kills with a weapon while the specific Mastery Camo is equipped.

That’s everything you need to know about the progression and levelling system in the game!
