Activision just revealed the early patch notes for Warzone 2.0 Season 2. Here’s a brief look at all the upcoming DMZ changes.
Warzone 2.0‘s Season 2 will be the second biggest update after Season 1 Reloaded. Despite many ups and downs, Warzone 2.0 and DMZ have held pretty strong and built a solid player base worldwide.
Still then, as it is still a pretty new game, there are many issues that need to be addressed before it can be considered fully polished. And it looks like Activision is taking all the necessary steps in the right direction.
Similar to Battle Royale, DMZ is undergoing several changes in Season 2. The AI and Mission difficulty will receive some fine-tuning along with the Season 2 update. Activision is also tuning some of the infil points across Al Mazrah for improved early match experience based on gameplay data.
Apart from that, there’ll be more new content along with new locations. However, these are just not revealed yet. So, without further ado, let’s look at the DMZ’s Season 2 early patch notes to get an in-depth idea of all the upcoming changes.

All DMZ Changes in Warzone 2 Season 2
In Season 01 the AI in DMZ were challenging, but the ramp up of difficulty was often steep with some players getting overwhelmed. With Season 02, we’ve introduced a number of balance changes to adjust the types of AI spawning, the number of AI spawning, and the accuracy of AI at range and much more. All of this should provide a challenging but manageable play-space that still requires player respect of enemy combatants in the DMZ.
We are tuning some of the infil points across Al Mazrah for improved early match experience based on gameplay data. Starting at a point at which your squad feels isolated or without loot and contract opportunities is not the best experience. These tweaks should improve spawn points across the mode.
Mission Difficulty Tuning
Data and feedback reinforced that the Faction Mission difficulty ramp was too aggressive for many Players, and that the demanding scale ultimately made it very challenging to unlock the second Insured Weapon Slot (completing all Tier 3 Missions) in Season 01. We have adjusted the overall scaling of difficulty in Missions as the Tiers progress. Later Tier Missions will still be quite challenging even for the experienced Operator, but we believe more straightforward access to an additional Insured Slot will provide a better path forward for all Players.
We know crashes are especially impactful in DMZ if you lose your items and Contraband Weapons as a result. Addressing these crashes is a priority for Season 02, and we are committed to increased stability. Stay tuned for more specifics on this.
All-new missions are coming to Season 02 including a refresh of your current Faction mission progress and an inventory (Contraband and Keys) reset. We will be detailing all the need-to-know intel for DMZ ahead of Season 02 in an upcoming blog.
With a new Exclusion Zone coming to Season 02, players will have a third option to choose from when deploying in DMZ. The Faction Mission refresh will provide new missions that send you across these destinations, including Building 21. We suggest you and your squad gear up for infiltration first!
