The second season, which was launched in early February with much anticipation, has sparked a positive response from players so far. Season 2 has been generously lauded, barring some concerns expressed by fans who particularly delight in the 'Zombies' segment of the game.

Praise for Season 2 Update

A lively discussion on the second season is ongoing across various internet forums. One such thread on a popular gaming subreddit had offered players an open avenue to discuss their thoughts on a variety of elements - from the Battle Pass, bundles to their own gaming journeys so far.

Several players have praised the free content provided in the second season. 'Departures,' 'Vista,' and 'Stash House' were singled out as impressive original maps by many players. Participants in the discussion also pointed out the huge improvement in map variety when compared to the first season.

The season has also been commended on the content front. A player appreciated the Battle Pass, deeming it decent. There is, however, a shared concern among players that the season, despite being Zombies-themed, does not offer any new substantial content for this beloved segment of the game.

The introduction of any new content for the Zombies faction, as per reports, won't happen until a mid-season update. This has been a source of grievance for a section of players. After all, with a character as appealing as Rick Grimes headlining the second season, the lack of new content for Zombies does appear to be a missed opportunity.

There could be a surprise addition to the Zombies segment, or other unexpected developments that sway the overall player sentiment. But, as it stands, fans are deeming the second season of MW3 a significant win for the game.
