Path of the Ronin Event

The Path of the Ronin event is a community challenge similar to the previous community challenges, such as Operation Monarch and Heroes vs Villains. Players must complete a set of challenges to unlock an ultimate reward.

Path of the Ronin Challenges

Players will receive Seven Path of the Ronin challenges in Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2. These challenges are based on the Seven Virtues of Bushido: Integrity, Respect, Courage, Honor, Compassion, Sincerity, and Loyalty.

Out of the seven challenges, three challenges will be available with the start of Season 2, and the other four will be added during the season. Let’s go over the challenges and how you can complete them in-game.


Integrity requires players to “Win 15 matches in any multiplayer game mode or Get five Top 10 finishes in Warzone 2.” This challenge will be easier to complete in multiplayer. While players in Warzone 2 must play carefully with their squad or alone to make their way to the top 10.


The Honor challenge requires players to “Score 100 objective defense kills in multiplayer or Restore Honor (Collect your dog tag) Five times in Warzone 2“. The easiest way to complete this in multiplayer is to play Hardpoint or Domination and get kills while standing on the objective.


The Sincerity Challenge requires players to “Get 50 kills using Battle Rage in multiplayer or Complete five Assassination Contracts in Warzone 2“. We recommend players to players to play team-based Warzone game modes to complete the Assassination contract, as any kill your team gets will count towards your progression. And as for multiplayer, we recommend players use SMGs and ARs while using Battle Rage to get kills quickly.


The Compassion challenge requires Modern Warfare 2 players to get 100 assists. On the other hand, players have to revive 20 teammates in Warzone 2 matches to complete the challenge in Warzone 2.0.


The Courage challenge requires players to go on a kill streak in Modern Warfare 2 to get three kills without dying 25 times. Warzone 2.0 players can complete the Courage challenge by completing three Search and Seizure contracts.


The Loyalty challenge requires players to get 50 Operator Revenge kills in Modern Warfare 2. On the other hand, to complete the Loyalty challenge in Warzone 2.0, players will have to complete three downloads during the Data Heist public event.


Warzone players will have to perform 3 executions on enemy players in matches to complete the Respect challenge. Meanwhile, getting 25 Melee Operator kills is the key to completing it in Modern Warfare 2. Both require a sneaky and stealthy style of play.

Path of the Ronin Start Date

The Path of the Ronin will begin with the Season 2 update that will arrive on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT. The update will go live on all platforms at the same time.

Path of the Ronin Reward

Aside from the rewards from each challenge, the ultimate reward of the Path of the Ronin challenge is the Crossbow. Players will unlock the Crossbow in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0.
