Introducing Weapon Prestige Camos

"In Season 3 Reloaded, we’re introducing Weapon Prestige Camos, a new progression system for players to flex mastery of their favorite weaponry in Modern Warfare III. To unlock a Weapon Prestige Camo, players must earn a set amount of Weapon XP for any weapon of choice, including those carried forward from MWII. Weapon Prestige Camos are earned on a per-weapon basis, rewarding commitment and giving those of you completionists a grind to keep you busy for Seasons to come. Our debut Weapon Prestige Camo is One Trick. Unlocked upon earning 150,000 Weapon XP, this camo coats the entire surface of your weapon in molten gold - and yes, it’s animated. You can expect to see a new Weapon Prestige Camo in each of the remaining Seasons ahead. We look forward to seeing which weapons you choose first for your journey to prestige!"

This part of the article contains all the changes in MW3 Zombies in Season 3 Reloaded.

STORY MISSION: UNION

  • A new anomaly has appeared in the Exclusion Zone and Dr. Jansen has gone through the portal alone. Operation Deadbolt Strike Teams must now conduct a rescue mission with Ravenov’s help to get her back before it’s too late.

NEW DARK AETHER RIFT

  • Seek out and attune the required relics after completing the Season 3 Reloaded Story Mission to re-open the Dark Aether Rift for subsequent runs. Complete the objectives within to acquire new powerful schematics.
  • Dark Aether Rifts are unlocked by solving a hidden quest, which activates after completing the new Season 3 Reloaded Story Mission.

NEW ACQUISITIONS AND SCHEMATICS

  • Dead Wire Detonators: Electrify your blasts for massive damage using the Dead Wire Detonators, adding the Dead Wire Ammo Mod effect to all of your explosive armaments, including Lethals and Launchers.
  • Note: Dead Wire Detonators do not apply to Wonder Weapons.
  • Golden Mask Filter: Forget the constant search for a functioning gas mask when approaching strongholds and other areas where gas threatens to suffocate incoming Operators. Attaching the Golden Mask Filter to a gas mask causes its charge to self-regenerate over time. The mask can still break if its charge is fully used up in one go, though the filter will be reapplied to the next one you find.
  • Sergeant’s Beret: With the undead roaming around, you’ve got enough to worry about before considering Zakhaev’s Mercs. Don the Sergeant’s Beret to trick the faction into thinking that you’re one of their own. As a bonus, you’ll gain a Merc Bodyguard who fearlessly follows you into the action.

NEW WARLORD: RAINMAKER

  • Challengers of the new Warlord Rainmaker will need to plan their tactics carefully when approaching this artillery and demolitions expert. Find him in his fortress on Rahaa Island in the southeastern Urzikstan Exclusion Zone, where he’s supported by an army that he’s only too willing to expend in pursuit of annihilating Operation Deadbolt.

GAMEPLAY UPDATES

  • Stash Storage Increased
  • The Stash storage limit has been doubled, allowing Players to store 20 acquisitions instead of 10.
  • Exfil Based Schematic Cooldown
  • When Players successfully exfil they will now also receive Schematic cooldown time in addition to their Insured Weapon cooldown time reward.

GAMEPLAY

  • Addressed an issue that would knock back Containment Levels by one Tier when Players exfil from a Story Mission.
  • Addressed an issue that prevented equipped Lethals and Tacticals from saving when traveling to a Dark Aether Rift or Story Mission if the Player had expended all of them.

ALLIES

  • Zombies
  • Hell Hounds
  • Friendly (Pet) Hell Hounds acquired from a Dog House in the Medium and High Threat Zones will no longer reset their Tier when entering and exiting the Aether Storm.

CUSTOMIZATION

  • Weapon Blueprints
