A search is presented for new massive resonances decaying to WW, WZ or ZZ bosons in lvqq‾ and qq‾qq‾ final states. Results are based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.3-2.7 fb-1 recorded in proton-proton collisions at √s = 13 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC. Decays of spin-1 and spin-2 resonances into two vector bosons are sought in the mass range 0.6-4.0 TeV. No signicant excess over the standard model background is observed. Combining the results of the lvqq‾ and qq‾qq‾ final states, cross section and mass exclusion limits are set for models that predict heavy spin-1 and spin-2 resonances. This is the first search for a narrow-width spin-2 resonance at √s = 13TeV.
