The Modern Warfare 2 Raid Rewards are here, and they're the only way to get access to the Gaz Operator skin unless you purchase the Raid Bundle from the Store. As well as unlocking Gaz and Veteran difficulty the first time you finish Atomgrad Episode 1, you'll also receive a random item from the seven available in the Raid loot pool, which range from a handy unique weapon blueprint to a somewhat less useful loading screen. Once you know how to start the Modern Warfare 2 Raid by cashing in a Raid Assignment, the next thing you'll want to find out is the prize for getting through to the finish, so we've got the lowdown on all of the Modern Warfare 2 Raid Rewards that can be claimed.

If you are going after the rewards then keep our Modern Warfare 2 raid codes guide handy to help you with one of the trickier puzzles you'll encounter.

The Modern Warfare 2 Raid Rewards you receive for completing Atomgrad Episode 1 are a combination of a guaranteed item the first time you beat it on Normal and Veteran difficulties, plus a random item from a pool of seven items. This means you potentially need to run through the whole Raid seven times if you want to unlock everything, so you'll need to make a judgement call on whether that's worth your time once the full list of items is revealed.

Modern Warfare 2 Raid Rewards for completing Atomgrad Episode 1

  • Gaz: Convoy skin (guaranteed for completing on Normal difficulty)
  • Veteran Raid difficulty unlocked (after completing on Normal difficulty)
  • The Punchline Bryson 800 Weapon blueprint (guaranteed for completing on Veteran difficulty)
  • Plus a random item from the seven in the Raid loot pool, including:
  • Forest Price player card
  • Gaz's Gaze player card
  • Eye on the Prize emblem
  • Gaz emblem
  • Graphic Gaz loading screen
  • Graphic Price loading screen
  • Enforcer Kastov 762 weapon blueprint

One Modern Warfare 2 Raid Reward we've seen already is the 'Punchline' weapon blueprint, pictured above, which is awarded for completing Atomgrad on Veteran difficulty. It apparently has Gaz's name on it, though the reaction so far has been divided over whether this reward is suitable enough for completing such a difficult challenge in Modern Warfare 2.

If you want to get access to Gaz as an Operator without completing the Raid, there's also the Raid Bundle available on the Store for 1,800 COD Points. This gives you access to the following items, which are separate from the Modern Warfare 2 Raid Rewards you unlock through completion:

  • Gaz: Aquatic skin
  • Gaz: Grass Ops skin (complete the Raid to unlock)
  • A Bit Stabby finishing move
  • Raid Breaker - Kastov 545 Assault Rifle weapon blueprint
  • Raid Whisperer - EBR-14 Marksman Rifle weapon blueprint
  • Oh Two weapon charm
  • Raid Buddies weapon sticker
  • Raid emblem
