Some Call of Duty players have been frustrated by Warzone’s merger with Black Ops Cold War, which they believe has “ruined” the acclaimed Battle Royale.
Since the release of Warzone in March 2020, over 75 million players have fallen in Verdansk and / or Rebirth Island. Activision has seen its first year grow into an undeniable success, but the merger with Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War was a unique step for the FPS series.
Despite the long-term collaboration between dev studios, it was the first time an Infinity Ward developed game mode expanded to include Treyarch weapons, stripes and more.

In the weeks since Warzone Season One launched and incorporated Black Ops Cold War weapons, the DMR 14 has risen to the top and become the undisputed primary weapon in the game. Certain flaws have also become prominent, as has a brand new Gulag in the image of the original Nuketown.
One, Redditor u / AFreaq, expected their problems in a longer post and turned out to be what they have interpreted as a decline in the quality of the game.
“The integration of the Cold War is the worst thing that has ever happened to Warzone, ”it says, before flying into criticism. From the new “Gulag” which is just a copy of Nuketown, because it looks like it’s the only thing they can get right with Black Ops, to destroyed weapons and bugs that will 100% ruin your battle, these changes killed our joy for the game. ”

The post also criticized the game’s color scheme and return of “sweaty” players. It concludes: “After a few days of struggling to enjoy a match, I felt the need to vent my frustration at being forced out of a game that kept us entertained during the show that was in 2020.”
Other players agreed, with one saying: “Destroy one of the best BRs out there. All they had to do was create a season 7 for MW / Warzone and leave CW on its own. ”Another echo:“ CW has two complete weapons and as 5 top level while MW is roughly balanced. Just separate the two, then we’re good. ”
While general opinion is often difficult to measure, over 500 people have voiced Redditor’s strong comments, suggesting that there is considerable empathy for their problems.
The road to a complete merger had to be uneven, but some clearly feel that the impacts are more similar to the cliff edges.
