Twitter user Metaphor posted a recent tweet suggesting that Warzone 2.0 will undergo major changes before its release. Fans have criticized the game for not being able to loadout from drops or use perks.
The preview of the game was shown to players at the Call of Duty: NEXT event, where 150 streamers were able to play the upcoming Battle Royale. Although many people appreciated the changes, most of the community was quite negative.
Warzone 2.0, an upcoming version of the current BR with the same name, will launch shortly after Modern Warfare 2 launches. To ensure that players have a next-gen experience, the developers have made improvements to the title currently in development. It will include advanced combat system and new movement mechanics.
What are the rumored Warzone 2.0 updates?
Metaphor claims that the game will undergo major changes before its launch. It will address all the concerns that were raised by players during the gameplay reveal. These are:
- AI combatants won’t be everywhere
- Strongholds are the only place where AI combatants can spawn.
- The Loadout system and Perk system are back.
- The Looting Interface has been updated.
These are just rumors. Activision and Infinity Ward have not confirmed the rumored changes.
Warzone 2.0: Criticisms
AI in Warzone 2.0 used to randomly spawn across the map, and could cause damage to players. Call of Duty’s advanced AI system ensured these bots would fight for their lives. Fans complained that the bots were distracting from the match and unnecessary.
The title’s loadout and perk system were not well received by the community. Loadout drops can be used to equip your preferred ‘Class’ in the current Warzone.
Based on what players saw in the Call of Duty: NEXT Event, loadouts can only be accessed from ‘Buy Stations’ scattered across the map. They can also purchase their individual loadout weapons here. They can only purchase their weapon individually if they want to, and it will be a large expense.
The game’s looting interface was also a complaint. This is currently being changed. It was very similar to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode.
Users complained that the system was difficult to use on their controllers and was confusing. Fans weren’t happy with the introduction of a similar looting system to Warzone2.0 despite their complaints about Blackout.
All these criticisms seem to be being addressed by developers, and the game is receiving the improvements that players desire.
