Clever Warzone Heartbeat Sensor nerf idea could destroy Ghost meta

Ghost is one of the most common picks when it comes to Warzone perks, but a Heartbeat Sensor nerf idea could shake up the perk meta.

The Heartbeat Sensor has long been one of Warzone’s most powerful gadgets, forcing players to use the Ghost Perk. However, a clever nerf idea could counter offer much more Perk and equipment variety.

Warzone’s Perk and equipment meta has almost never changed since its March 2020 launch. Although Raven Software added Tempered to the second Perk slot, according to WZ Ranked, Ghost is still used in 60% of loadouts.

And this is all because of the Heartbeat Sensor, which is also used in 60% of loadouts.

Ghost is currently the only counter to Heartbeat Sensors, but a clever nerf idea would limit its effectiveness, perhaps allowing for more Perk variety in Season 6.

Reddit user XIDan1 suggested that the Heartbeat Sensor should have a battery that depletes with each use. Once dead, it could be charged through an Ammo Crate, or a new Sensor must be picked up.

It’s currently the only piece of Equipment with unlimited uses, so some pointed out that this would bring it in line with Stuns and Smokes.

The OP suggested that the Heartbeat Sensor nerf would counter campers, but many players disagreed. While campers do use the Heartbeat Sensor to spot any approaching enemies, they’re also extremely useful for rooting out players camping in an attic or staircase.

A few said that the nerf is unnecessary because you can use Ghost, but others said that this makes Ghost a “crutch perk.” With UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors readily available, players said you’re “at a massive disadvantage” if you don’t choose Ghost from your first loadout.

If the Heartbeat Sensors were less powerful, there might be a shift in Ghost’s pick rate, and plenty of other Perks could enter the meta. But, there’s no guarantee that a Heartbeat Sensor nerf would ultimately end the Ghost supremacy, as UAVs are still extremely powerful tools.

Warzone Pacific Season 4 is here, bringing new weapons, Fortune’s Keep, and major Caldera updates. But there’s still more to come, so here’s everything confirmed for the Warzone Pacific Season 4 mid-season update, as well as its expected release date.

Every season, Call of Duty introduces another major update halfway through the season called ‘Reloaded.’ This usually brings a new weapon, new game modes, and major quality of life updates. Season 4 is no different, with the devs gearing up to add a new crossover, modes, and more in the mid-season update.

Here’s everything we know about the Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update, including when we expect it to arrive.

Expected Warzone Season 4 Reloaded release date

While Raven Software haven’t revealed when Warzone Season 4 Reloaded will arrive, we expect it to arrive in the week beginning July 25, as this is halfway through Season 4.

This is only the expected date, so we’ll be sure to confirm once Raven Software or Sledgehammer games confirm the official release date.

After teasing a Terminator crossover in Warzone, the Season 4 Battle Pass announcement confirmed that the T-800 and T-1000 Terminators will arrive as Store Bundles in the mid-Season update.

The T-800 is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s classic Terminator played and the T-1000 is the shapeshifting android from T2 who most often appears as a cop played by Robert Patrick. Not much else is known about these bundles, with the devs confirming we’ll know more about them later in Season 4.

Vargo-S arrives in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

Warzone’s Season 4 update added the Marco 5 SMG and UGM-8 LMG, but the Vargo-S Assault Rifle is set to arrive later in the season. Similar to the H4 Blixen and Armaguerra 43 arriving in mid-season updates, we expect the Vargo-S to arrive in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

The Vargo-S is set to be an early prototype of Cold War’s Vargo 52, and the devs have said it offers a “high-fire rate, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload.”

New game modes in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

Armored SUV in Warzone Titanium Trials

Alongside the Terminator skins and a new Assault Rifle, Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded will also bring the Titanium Trials: Endurance and the Rebirth of the Dead mode.

Titanium Trials is set to be “an updated version of the highly-competitive Iron Trials,” and Rebirth of the Dead should bring Zombies to Rebirth Island. We should know much more about the new modes in the run-up to Season 4 Reloaded.

NICKMERCS loves the new Fortune’s Keep Warzone map and explains why

NICKMERCS has shared his opinion on the brand-new Warzone Season 4 map, Fortune’s Keep, stating that he loves it, as well as explaining why.

Published

While NICKMERCS has been off Warzone for some time now, the popular streamer returned to try out the new map Fortune’s Keep, which he said he loves.

Warzone Season 4 introduced a brand-new map to entice players to hop on and explore. While some players’ initial thoughts have been slightly negative, perhaps because they’re missing Rebirth Island, NICKMERCS has expressed a positive opinion regarding the map.

In a recent stream, NICKMERCS explained why he likes the new map, and what kind of player would like Fortune’s Keep.

NICKMERCS left Warzone for Apex Legends, becoming addicted to the ranked mode grind that Respawn’s battle royale has to offer.

Despite continuing to enjoy Apex over Warzone, NICKMERCS returned to Call of Duty’s battle royale for the Season 4 update, intrigued by the new map Fortune’s Keep.

NICKMERCS has been pretty open about his feelings towards Warzone and Caldera, sharing similar opinions to Dr Disrespect. Having said that, NICKMERCS seems to be enjoying Fortune’s Keep, as while playing it on June 22 he said “I really like the map, yeah a lot.”

NICKMERCS went on to say, “I love the map…what can’t you like? It’s kind of more dynamic than the old one…there’s a cave, there’s a lot more towns and stuff.”

The popular streamer is clearly enjoying the map design for Fortune’s Keep, especially the variation in the POIs and elevation throughout the map.

NICKMERCS even feels that the map is perfectly suited to those who like to play fast: “If you’re like a speed runner, like if you play super quick man, oh my god…parkour on this thing man.”


Perhaps this will draw NICKMERCS back in, or maybe the ranked mode on Apex Legends is still a priority for the streamer. Either way, like other CoD fans, NICKMERCS will likely be looking forward to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
