5 big changes COD: Warzone needs in 2022
Call of Duty Warzone is among the best FPS games and is part of a handful of titles that have been able to retain their player base over the years.
Developed by Raven Software, Warzone is one of the best multiplayer FPS shooters available. Following its commercial success, Activision recently announced that Warzone 2 will be coming out sometime in 2023.
Until then, here are 5 of the most important changes that can make the player experience better in Call of Duty Warzone.
1. Audio & footsteps
Footsteps are a key element in identification of an enemy’s location inside a building or in an outer environment, but recently many players have been facing an issue where they were unable to determine exactly where the opponent player is.
A recent COD: Warzone survey suggests that the footstep audio bug still persists or has worsened after the Season 3 update.
Around 55% of the players think this issue remains the same, while nearly 21% say that the footstep audio is now even worse than before. Moreover, the remaining 23% feel that the audio has improved after the update.
Based on this, the majority of the fan base feels that the issue is still prevalent and the developers need to work on fixing it.
2. Stability improvements to Warzone
Every game needs regular updates to iron out the issues with gameplay and COD Warzone is no exception to that. But players have been left underwhelmed by the recent updates and just how unpolished they are.
3. Skill-based matchmaking
Skill-based matchmaking is typically used to create a level playing field for players of similar skill levels in matches. This is done to make the matches fair and is better for the overall retention of players.
But this is being exploited by some players as they tank their stats in order to match against new or less skilled players.
4. Field of view slider on consoles
The lack of FOV sliders for console players puts them at a clear disadvantage against PC players. A slider can be turned up in order to view a bigger area on the screen.
This means the higher the FOV, the more zoomed-out the view can be seen on your screen.
The current limit to consoles forces players to disable crossplay which in turn makes it harder to find players and hence leads to a loss of player base.
5. Warzone cheaters
The most common issues with game are hackers and cheaters. They use tools such as Aimbot, wall hacks and even make vehicles fly.
With its latest update, there has been a sharp decrease in numbers but it’s not completely gone.
The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat system has been effective and has stopped wall hackers in the game. But there has been a spike in their numbers once again. Hopefully, this issue gets completely addressed in Season 4.
