Call of Duty’s ‘The Haunting’ Update Kicks off September 27th
Modern Warfare II’s final season begins on September 27th, and it has been dubbed ‘The Haunting’ in recognition of its spooky Halloween theme. It features some fantastic crossovers – including Spawn – as well as a host of new weapons, maps, modes, and a massive mid-season event named… The Haunting.
Did you see that coming?
It’s a few weeks of content followed by the release of Modern Warfare III, and it promises to be a fond swansong season for the love-hate Call of Duty title that was released almost a year ago in October 2022. Whether you found it insufferable or monumental, Modern Warfare II is preparing to be sunsetted, for better or worse.
On September 27th, The Haunting update will drop globally, changing the face of Warzone and Modern Warfare II for a few weeks. There are four new weapons to be collected, four new maps to be explored, a massive mid-season event, and a wide array of new Operators to purchase and play with.
Here are the licensed Operators coming as part of key crossovers during Season 06:
There will also be a spooky range of reskins available for existing Operators, many of which are based on Spawn’s universe. Spawn himself will be made available through the completion of the battle pass for Season 06.

There are four new maps coming in Season 06 – La Casa (core), Koro Village (core), King (Gunfight), and Fight (Gunfight). They’re the last maps that will ever be released for Modern Warfare II – so appreciate them greatly while you can.
During the mid-season special, The Haunting, Warzone’s maps will be plunged into darkness as a horror-themed event takes over – Operation Nightmare. Leading up to that point, multiplayer maps and modes will undergo reskins where needed, bringing that Halloween theme well and truly across the ecosystem.
For those interested in new hardware, there are four new weapons coming this season:
TR-76 Geist (AR)
ISO 9mm (SMG)
Dual Kamas (Melee)
DOOM Chainsaw (Melee)
There’s also a huge collection of challenges to complete, Ranked Play rewards to unlock, and the Final Prestige level to secure. For the more capable players, that means camos, blueprints, and skins that’ll all carry over to Modern Warfare III when the game is released on November 10th.
