Activision’s marketing partnership with Sony is still in full effect, so PlayStation players can reap exclusive benefits that aren’t available to Xbox and PC players. Here’s every Modern Warfare 2 PlayStation benefit confirmed so far.
Despite Microsoft being in the process of acquiring Activision Blizzard, PlayStation’s marketing partnership with Call of Duty still stands. In the past, PlayStation players got access to exclusive modes, PS Plus Combat Packs, more loadout slots, and extra party XP.
With Modern Warfare 2 players officially jumping into the action, here are all of the PlayStation-exclusive benefits confirmed for Modern Warfare 2.
- Modern Warfare 2 PlayStation benefits
- Extra Tier Skips
- PlayStation-exclusive Oni Operator
- How long do Modern Warfare 2’s PlayStation benefits last?
Modern Warfare 2 exclusive PlayStation benefits
PlayStation players are entitled to exclusive benefits from purchasing any version of Modern Warfare 2. For starters, players who purchase the Battle Pass Bundle will receive five extra tier skips, which brings the total to 25 tier skips.
When PlayStation players reach Rank 4 and unlock Create-A-Class, two additional loadout slots will be available. This will aid in expanding your preferred arsenal of weapons.
Much like Vanguard, Modern Warfare 2 players on PlayStation consoles will be eligible to receive a free Combat Pack with each new season. The Combat Pack usually provides an Operator Skin, Weapon Blueprint, and Emblem amongst other cosmetics.
Most importantly, PlayStation players will benefit from a ton of extra XP. Playing in a party will reward PlayStation players with 25% more Weapon XP. In addition, they will receive PS-exclusive monthly Double XP events.
Extra Tier Skips with Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition
The Vault Edition gives players the Season 1 Battle Pass and a whopping 50 Tier Skips, but it was revealed along with the Campaign Early Access rewards that “Vault Edition owners on PlayStation platforms will receive an additional 5 Tier Skips on top of the 50 awarded with this special edition.”
PlayStation-exclusive Oni Operator with Modern Warfare 2 pre-order
You don’t have to purchase the Vault Edition to receive an exclusive PlayStation benefit in Modern Warfare 2, as PlayStation Store pre-orders will get the Hiro ‘Oni’ Watanabe Operator and weapon Blueprint.
Oni is a “warrior and gun-for-hire who descended from a centuries-old samurai clan,” whose outfit combines modern military gear with samurai-themed pauldrons and face mask.
How long do Modern Warfare 2’s PlayStation benefits last?
It appears PlayStation-exclusive Modern Warfare 2 benefits will only last for a year, as Activision confirmed that “PlayStation players receive select bonus content not available on other platforms until 23:59 PST on Oct 27, 2023.”
What exactly will change after October 27 2023 remains to be seen — the Oni Operator could arrive in the store for PC or Xbox players, and there might even be more announced benefits such as the bonus Gunsmith slots and Party XP that PlayStation players received.
