There will be meta changes to the weapons, as well as two new hop-ops coming in Season 2. There will also be new ways to play:

  • Ranked Mode Coming to Season 2: Rank mode you’ll progress through 6 tiers if you are good enough. Goes from bronze to Apex Predator. Uses special match-making. Throughout the season, you’ll gain tiers, and at the end of the season, you’ll get rewards. Great incentive.
