It has always been a tradition for Call Of Duty developers to offer an additional tier to the base game at the time of launch. This is done to allow the players to have very exclusive extras along with the newest title itself. This year, Modern Warfare 2 is no exception to this rule. The Call Of Duty MW2: Vault Edition content pack is for those who wish to have a head-start right from the get-go.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is undoubtedly one of the most expensive games from the Call Of Duty series. The base game alone costs $69.99 on any platform you wish to buy it for. With it already being so expensive, deciding whether to put the extra $29.99 aside for the Vault Edition content for the game can prove to be quite tough.

- Players can pre-order either the Standard Edition or the Vault Edition of COD Modern Warfare 2.
- Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition packs a ton of content which is available right from the get-go as soon as you pre-order.

Call Of Duty MW2: Vault Edition Content In Detail
The Vault Edition packs a lot and really shows the worth of spending the extra $29.99 on it. The MW2: Vault Edition content comes packed with exclusive operator skins, along with a certain assault rifle blueprint and more.
The Red Team 141 Operator Pack
Players who pre-order the Call Of Duty MW2: Vault Edition will get access to four exclusive classic Multiplayer Operators. These are part of the Red Team 141 Operator Pack. All these Operators come with custom cosmetics essentially based on the classic look of the long-term series veteran character Ghost. The lineup includes significantly major characters from the original Modern Warfare series.
The Operators include Farah Karim, John “Soap” MacTavish, Sam “Ghost” Riley, and the absolute fan-favorite Captain John Price himself. All of these Operators are equipped with a custom-made masked outfit, all resembling the defining looks of Ghost. What is more, is that all these Operators can be used during the Open Beta as well.
The FJX Cinder Weapon Vault
Players who pre-order the Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Vault Edition also get access to the FJX Cinder Weapon Vault. The FJX Cinder Vault is a special, all-encompassing blueprint that has a variant of every attachment for the M4, as well as for the M4 sub-variants you can build. The Vault has the right tools for the toughest missions, as has been described on the official website.
The FJX Cinder Weapon Vault functions essentially as a mega blueprint of sorts. It does not just include a handful of attachment variants but rather a variant for every single attachment the M4 could have. Do note that this does include variants of all the receivers that help you turn the M4 into another gun.
For instance, you could slap on the M16 receiver, and it will retain the look of the blueprint. This is because the developers have also designed a variant for that specific part. This is applicable to all grips, barrels, magazines, and so on. The FJX Cinder Weapon Vault will also be available to use during the Open Beta of the game as well.
One-Season Battle Pass With 50 Tier Skips
Purchasing the Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Vault Edition also gives you one season of the Battle Pass along with 50 Tier Skips right from the get-go. This gives you a huge head start, essentially allowing you to unlock content otherwise impossible to unlock at the start of the game.
From Weapon Blueprints to Operator Skins and much more, you can unlock loads of content from your very first launch of the game. It is also important to note that if you make the purchase after the first season of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is over, the Battle Pass and 50 Tier Skips can be applied to whatever season is going on at the time of purchase.
The Ghost Legacy Pack
Purchasing the Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Vault Edition also unlocks the Ghost Legacy Pack for you. The Ghost Legacy Pack packs a ton load of content with it. It has 12 Operator skins for the major character Ghost in Call Of Duty: Warzone and the 2019 title Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare. In addition to the Operator skins, it comes with 10 Weapon Blueprints from the M4AI assault rifle family.
The Ghost Legacy Pack also allows you to play as Ghost himself in Call Of Duty: Warzone upon pre-ordering. The Operator skins for Ghost include Jawbone, Mandible, Last Breath, Classic Ghost, Reckoner, Ghosted, Dark Vision along with many more.
The Assault Rifle Weapon Blueprints include the Waves of Sin, Kingly Splendor, K2, Oscar Mike along with many more. These become available as soon as the player makes the pre-order on Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Vault Edition.
All these items are unlocked immediately upon pre-order and can be used right away. In addition to the items described above, there are other instant-unlock bonuses for Call Of Duty: Warzone, which is yet to be announced by Activision. It is also worth noting that all the players pre-ordering the Standard Edition of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will also receive the contents at some point after the release of the game.
Requirements For Redeeming The Ghost Legacy Pack
It is important to note that the Ghost Legacy Pack is downloaded separately from the base game Modern Warfare 2. The last date to redeem the Ghost Legacy Pack is October 28, 2023. In order to redeem the Ghost Legacy Pack, you must have bought and installed either Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare or Call Of Duty: Warzone or, better yet, both.
This essentially implies that the players who pre-order Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 through Steam will not be able to access the Ghost Legacy Pack and its contents. This is because neither Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare nor Call Of Duty: Warzone is available on Steam. Since they are essential for redeeming the Ghost Legacy Pack, so Steam users will, unfortunately, be left out of its contents.
Nevertheless, Activision has gone out and said in their official FAQ that the pre-order and Vault Edition customers would be able to access the Ghost Legacy Pack at a later date. It is also worth mentioning that this will be regardless of what platform the player is playing the game on. However, they need to have all relevant games linked to the same Activision account in order to access the Ghost Legacy Pack.
In-Game Store Bonus
If you purchase the Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition through the in-game store of Call Of Duty: Warzone, Call Of Duty: Vanguard, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, or Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, you will get a solid 10 hours of Double XP Tokens and 10 hours of Double Weapon XP Tokens each in Modern Warfare 2.
This will allow you to race quicker towards Prestige, rank up quicker and level your weapons faster than your enemies. This is a huge head start for new players. The Double XP Tokens and the Double Weapon XP Tokens can be used right away on the launch of the game. You can also save them for use in Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0. The game is due to release later this year and is expected to improve on its predecessor.
We recommend that you make the pre-order purchase through one of the in-game stores listed above. This will put you leagues above your opponents right from the get-go with the Double XP Tokens and Double Weapon XP Tokens.
Is the Call Of Duty MW2: Vault Edition Content Worth Buying
The Call Of Duty Battle Passes usually cost around 1,000 Call of Duty Points. This amount of Call of Duty Points is equivalent to $9.99. Moreover, skipping one tier in the recent Call Of Duty titles costs somewhere around 150 Call of Duty Points. This essentially implies that to buy 50 Tier Skips, and the player will have to spend around 7,500 CoD Points.
Now the cheapest option to get around 7,500 Call of Duty Points costs around $62. The cost for the Call of Duty Points required to buy 50 Tier Skips combined with the cost for the Call of Duty Points required to purchase a Season Battle Pass brings the figure to a rough $72. This Battle Pass and Tier Skips alone require more than double the cost of the MW2: Vault Edition upgrade.
Read Team 141 Operator Pack & FJX Cinder Weapon Vault Exclusivity
It would not be wrong to say that the most significant content that the Vault Edition comes with is the Read Team 141 Operator Pack. The Operator Pack, along with the FJX Cinder Weapon Vault, has had many fans hyped about the MW2: Vault Edition.
The Read Team 141 Operator Pack includes four Operators from the original Modern Warfare series. These Operators can only be obtained by purchasing the Vault Edition of Modern Warfare 2. There is virtually no other way of unlocking these Operators in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This essentially means that once the Vault Edition is no more available for purchase, these Operators become unlockable legacy content.
The same is the case for the FJX Cinder Weapon Vault. The FJX Cinder Vault is a special, all-encompassing blueprint that has a variant of every attachment for the M4. The blueprint also covers all the sub-variants that you can build from the M4. This allows you to have a huge head and advantage over your opponents early on in the game.
Considering all these aspects of the Vault Edition content, we definitely consider it worth the extra money required to pre-order it. Even if we do not take into account the Red Team 141 Operator Pack and the FJX Cinder Vault, the Vault Edition is absolutely worth it for the Battle Pass and 50 Tier Skips alone.
