Infinity Ward recently released the Season 4 Reloaded update for Warzone 2, which introduced ‘The Boys: Temp V Field Upgrades’ which allows players to enhance their gameplay with superpowers.

Upon consumption, players will be granted one of four random superpowers that function differently from typical Field Upgrades. However, if one gets eliminated before using the power, it is lost, similar to a regular Field Upgrade.

But, some are disappointed.

COD: Warzone 2 ‘The Boys’ skins superpowers met with backlash

According to reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10), multiple Call Of Duty: Warzone 2 players are dissatisfied with the recently added ‘The Boys’ skins superpowers.

The inclusion of overpowered superpowers in a game known for its relatively more realistic and serious theme has been met with discontent.

Even though gamers find ‘The Boys’ skins to be cool, they feel that these should have been limited to Warzone and not introduced in the DMZ mode.

They also assert that the recently introduced upgrades negatively affect their gaming experience, especially when playing DMZ Mode.

One of those affected claims that they were chased by a six-person rival team that was equipped with lasers and was constantly shocking them. They also find it difficult to escape from such opponents.

Another believes that adding fake and exaggeratedly unrealistic weapons and skins is one thing, but adding superpowers is a whole new level of madness.

The boys skins are cool not my cup of tea but, what idiot thought it would be a great idea adding super powers that are extremely over powered keep them In warzone not dmz. And you get rid of solo pleading like what the hell.

Interesting how the “I play COD because it’s realistic” fanbase is awfully quiet now that there are literal superpowers in it.

However, a few are very happy with the recent changes and assert that the developers have finally succeeded in making the game more enjoyable.

They feel that Superpowers are a lot of fun and that the recent update has improved their gaming experience significantly.

On the other hand, the inclusion of superpowers has also led to comparisons being drawn with Fortnite. Some perceive (1,2,3,4,5) the developer’s as a desperate attempt to replicate Fortnite’s style.

They have even drawn parallels between the game’s character designs and those available in Fortnite.

Although it must be noted that the introduction of superpowers and ‘The Boys’ themed skins is a temporary game feature.
