In a new upload, professional Call of Duty player JGOD confirms that Warzone is actually Pay to Win.
As if Warzone did not have enough problems to deal with at the moment, it seems that the popular battle king now contains Pay to Win elements. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a Pay to Win game is exactly as it sounds:
Those players who choose to spend extra money in the game are rewarded with a greater chance of winning.
This problem blows everyone else out of the water, even the overwhelming DMR that destroys Warzone. Right now, Warzone has many major issues that need to be addressed, but none are more serious than this one.
The new Warzone Blueprint is Pay to Win
Even after a new nerf, the Mac-1
Recently, Cold War weapons were integrated into the Warzone, and things went about as badly as you might expect. With tons of new weapons coming into play at once, of course, the balance was completely off.
The DMR 14, Mac-10, Type 63 and Akimbo Diamattis were far too powerful, to the point where they dominated the battle royals. Now a new Warzone nerf patch has solved some of the issues, but not all.
For example, while the Mac-10 now boasts less head-on damage, gamers find it more than viable. And there is a reason for this.
The Mac-10 base is now in a much better place than it was before, but it’s a way to keep your gun at a broken level. Those who splash out and buy the Gallantry Blueprint for Mac-10 get a huge advantage in the game.
According to JGOD, a professional Call of Duty player and YouTuber, the Mac-10 Blueprint is significantly better than the base. In fact, Gallantry will do as much damage to the limbs of enemy players as a head shot with the Mac-10 base.
This is an insane boost, and it’s definitely a Pay-to-Win element in the game. If it was just headache injuries that hadn’t been changed, that would be one thing.
But the Gallantry Mac-10 actually has higher damage rates around, including on body shots. And according to JGOD, this is an important cause for concern.
Do other Warzone drawings pay to win for?
The fact that Gallantry is so clearly destroyed is very worrying, as it raises a big question. Do other Warzone Blueprints also strengthen weapons in unfair ways?
JGOD believes this may be a real issue in Call of Duty: Warzone, going forward.
“There is no way that could be a mistake,” says YouTuber. “It’s like they took the MP5 damage values, and basically gave it to the Mac-10, with the Fennec firing rate.”
JGOD will also know if other drawings have affected Warzone since its launch. After all, there was no reason to test them until now.
We’re just grateful that there are no broken DMR 14 drawings … yet. However, a Warzone player may already have the best strategy for beating DMR 14.
Recently, we saw new details for the second major Warzone map leak online. Hopefully, when this new content is ready for release, the game is solved for all users.
But if Activision doubles down on this new Pay to Win system, we imagine that the player base will soon see a rapid decline.
