Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is the latest addition to the Call of Duty series and has drawn conflicting opinions from the franchise’s huge fan base. While some fans have expressed their admiration, others seem to resent various aspects of the latest title.
After the release of the game, Activision Season 1 Reloaded began with new in-game content and updates. The recently released patch notes contain several bug fixes and quality of life improvements in Warzone 2. The new content should further enhance the gaming experience.
Here’s everything you need to know about the latest changes to the game’s quality of life:
New Quality of Life Changes in Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded
Quality-of-life updates are the latest topic of discussion within the Warzone 2 fan community. The term “quality of life” refers to subtle in-game changes that can drastically affect a title’s gameplay and experience. For example, adding a new sound that notifies team members of an incoming bomb can reduce the need for continuous lookouts on a boring game interface.
The developers at Activision just launched a bunch of quality of life updates back in December and a lot of things have been addressed. These updates include elements of the alert mechanism, time out of play zone, ammo, ground loot, and buy stations. It all affects the entire gameplay experience in one way or another.
The developers have increased the maximum time allowed outside the playing area to 10 seconds, giving players just enough time to get back into the action. Previously there were only on-screen indications, but now fans will get an audible alert when a nearby player has been brought back to life.
Warzone 2 ammunition has also received a sneaky but impressive update; falling weapons will also cause them to drop their ammo. It can later be automatically looted by other players if they have a partial stack of the same type of ammo and walk over it. This greatly increases the in-game action during intense combat where every clip and bullet matters.
There are further improvements to ground loot priority and interacting with desired items has become easier. Additionally, items purchased through Buy Stations will appear scattered around the area instead of stacking on top of each other for easier interaction and faster picking. This reduces the filtering of items to pick and drop, and also the chance of being ambushed while selecting your drop.
Last but not least, there is another update with the notification sound in Warzone 2. Whenever a member of the Gulag has knocked out an opponent or has been knocked out in a battle, a sound is played to notify the squad of the result .
The aforementioned quality-of-life updates were made on December 14, a month after the game’s release. Players also received the Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded patch along with the new content of Warzone 2. Several new updates and bug fixes have also been made to the Modern Warfare 2 game, bringing changes to events, vehicles, new weapons, field updates, equipment and attachments.
