Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is a battle royale game developed by Infinity Ward and is available on PlayStation, Xbox, and Microsoft Windows.

While many across the globe enjoy the game, it sporadically faces bugs and issues that wreck the fun for some.


To this effect, we have a dedicated tracker that solely focuses on all the bugs, issues, and new features of the game.

It appears that the recent iteration of the Warzone series has been a source of disappointment to some players owing to slowed down and simplified movement mechanics.

COD: Warzone 2 slowed down & simplified movement mechanics

Players have been vocal about their dissatisfaction with the game’s movement mechanics.

Some have reported (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) that the movement in Warzone 2 feels slowed down and clunky compared to the original Warzone, and have called for a return to the smoother, more fluid movement of the previous game.

Might be true but Warzone 1 > Warzone 2…. better movement and skill gap

One major change that has received criticism is the removal of the ability to sprint or run while playing. This feature was present in Warzone but has been removed in the latest release.


The removal of the Slide Cancel feature, which was essentially an exploit in Warzone 1, has also contributed to the simplification of the movement mechanics.

Some players have suggested that these changes were made with a more casual audience in mind, as the fast-paced and hectic gameplay of Warzone 1 could be intimidating for new players.

So warzone 2 is bad because streamers don’t get an advantage over the people that don’t sit on the game for 8 hours a day. Streamers are selfish man

However, many fans of the original game feel that the slower, simplified movement mechanics take away from the overall experience and make the game less enjoyable.

Many are calling for the return of the sprint and run feature, as well as the reintroduction of the Slide Cancel.

It remains to be seen whether the developers of Warzone 2 will address these concerns and make changes to the movement mechanics in future updates.

That said, we hope that COD: Warzone 2 developers pay attention to slowed down and simplified mechanics reported widely and serve a solution to them as soon as possible.

Until then, keep an eye on this story as we will update it with the recent updates, if any.
