The MW2 Path of the Ronin event is one of the key features of the new and exciting Season 2, but it can be a bit confusing to get your head around the whole thing. Outside of the Battle Pass and standard level progression system, MW2 offers you plenty of other ways to earn new items and test your skills. So, carry on reading down below to see all of the details surrounding the new MW2 Path of the Ronin event.

The MW2 Path of the Ronin event is due to commence alongside the release of Season 2, meaning that you will be able to jump into all of the challenges on February 15, 2023.

It has not yet been announced how long the event will last, but it will most certainly only be for a limited period, so you will want to prioritise getting it done to claim all of the rewards. We will be able to know as soon as the event goes live, though, as there will be a timer attached.

We currently don't have any information regarding the MW2 Path of the Ronin event challenges as the Season has not started yet. However, we will make sure to update you within this guide when they do drop at the start of the new season.

From a perspective of speculation though, these challenges are likely to involve various in-game tasks, and may stretch across the three main MW2 game modes too. We have already seen Infinity Ward nudge people towards DMZ to get new weapons, so it wouldn't be surprising to see them include it and Warzone 2 in the event challenges alongside the standard multiplayer.

The main reward that you will be gunning for when doing the MW2 Path of the Ronin event is the Crossbow, which has been confirmed as one of the new MW2 Season 2 weapons. However, that is the final reward for completing the whole set, so there is going to be an additional selection of gifts to tempt you along the way.

There are seven challenges that you will need to complete in total, with each one themed around one of the Seven Virtues of Bushido: Integrity, Respect, Courage, Honor, Compassion, Sincerity, and Loyalty.

While the individual rewards might not be the most enticing, with Infinity Ward hinting towards things like weapon charms and gun screens, the final gift of the Crossbow should be well worth the effort.

So, that wraps up this guide on the MW2 Path of the Ronin event, giving you everything you need to know to complete the challenges. Make sure to check out these MW2 DMZ key locations if you're stuck trying to use a key on Al Mazrah.
