The Minigun makes an unexpected return in Warzone Season 3

Following the release of the most recent update for Warzone, the Minigun made an unexpected return in Season 3 of the Call of Duty battle royale.

Warzone Minigun Season 3

The May 7, 2021 update for Warzone made some major changes to the Call of Duty battle royale, but it looks as though an unintended change regarding the Minigun made its way through into Season 3.

The Minigun was once a rare weapon that players could acquire in Warzone and mow down multiple enemies thanks to its high fire and large ammo count rate. However, the Minigun was eventually removed from the game, and players could no longer acquire the powerful weapon.

The absence of the Minigun in Warzone was unexpectedly ended on May 7, 2021, when Raven Software applied the most recent update for the Call of Duty battle royale, as players began to report that they were getting the Minigun from loot boxes on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

Following the application of the May 7 update for Warzone, members of the community began to discuss how they were now able to find the MInigun in supply boxes when playing. It was at first unclear if this was an intended decision by Raven Software or if it something unintended that resulted from the most recent Warzone update.

Raven Software soon updated their official Trello board for issues that they are investigating with the game and stated they were investigating the Minigun spawning from supply boxes on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

This confirmed that the Minigun was not supposed to make a return in Season 3.

The Warzone developer went on to post an announcement on its Twitter account that it had applied a playlist update to the Call of Duty battle royale that should prevent the Minigun from spawning in supply boxes but asked players to let them know if the Minigun return issue was still persisting following the playlist update.

While the return of the Minigun in Warzone Season 3 was not supposed to happen, there are sure to be some players who took advantage and were able to have some fun with the powerful weapon before Raven Software pushed the playlist update to stop the Minigun from spawning.

Unfortunately for these players, it looks as though the unexpected return of the Minigun in Warzone Season 3 was a short-lived experience for the community.

Warzone devs promise to buff “struggling” Modern Warfare weapons

Raven Software promised players in the most recent patch notes that it will be taking a look at struggling Modern Warfare weapons.

Warzone Modern Warfare Weapons Buff

In the most recent set of patch notes for Call of Duty: Warzone, Raven Software explained that they would be taking a look at struggling Modern Warfare weapons in the battle royale with an intention to buff them.

A large portion of Warzone’s life was only filled with weapons from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but this changed with the release and integration of Black Ops Cold War into the battle royale game.

This integration saw weapons from Black Ops Cold War dominate the meta and leave the vast majority of Modern Warfare weapons in the dust.

The most recent patch notes that Warzone developers Raven Software released on May 7, 2021, gave fans of the Modern Warfare weapons hope for the future.

In the May 7th, 2021 patch notes, Raven Software gave a detailed explanation of the latest round of changes that the studio made to Warzone that included a great deal of weapon balancing and changes to floor loot, which had been a major topic of discussion amongst players in Season 3.

One of the most interesting things that caught the community’s eyes in the patch notes for Warzone was near the end when Raven Software addressed concerns that they would only be making changes to Black Ops Cold War weapons and provided a tease of a Warzone Modern Warfare weapons buff.

“Finally, we would like to address concerns that we are only going to be making changes to Cold War weapons. In the future, we fully intend on taking a closer look at some of the Modern Warfare weapons that have been struggling,” said Raven Software.

The nerf of the CR-56 AMAX in the May 7 patch notes for Warzone is one of the first major changes that have been applied to Modern Warfare weapons since the integration of Black Ops Cold War into the Call of Duty battle royale.

With Call of Duty 2021 and future games planned to integrate into Warzone as the central hub of the franchise from now on, there have been concerns that fan-favorite weapons from past games would be forgotten and never touched by the developers in the future.

Raven Software has now made it clear that they do not intend to do this for the Modern Warfare weapons for at least the rest of the Black Ops Cold War cycle in Warzone.

Warzone players call for devs to fix Groza iron sight glitch

Warzone players are calling for the developers of the Call of Duty battle royale to fix the frustrating Groza iron sight glitch.

Warzone Groza Iron Sight Glitch

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone has brought a new glitch that is causing the Groza iron sight to not display properly on the screen of players leading to a great deal of frustration.

Plenty of new things were added to Warzone with Season 3, such as the new Verdansk ’84 map and the new PPSH and Swiss K31 weapons.

However, various bugs have also made an appearance in the Call of Duty battle royale during Season 3, with one of the most frustrating ones being the Groza iron sight glitch, which has led to players calling for the developers to fix this issue soon.

Warzone Groza Iron Sight

The Warzone Groza iron sight glitch in question consists of the middle piece of the Assault Rifle’s sights being completely missing from a player’s screen when they aim down the weapon’s sights.

This has been especially frustrating in the new Verdansk ’84 Gulag, as the Groza is one of the weapons players may have to use when fighting for their lives in the Gulag.

This Warzone Groza iron sight glitch has now become a prevalent headache for players in the Gulag during Season 3.

This frustration has led to players calling for the developers of the Call of Duty battle royale to fix this issue, as it is affecting their ability to properly use this Assault Rifle, which is one of the more popular picks for players when it comes to choosing the close-range option for their loadouts recently.

The developers have not responded to these calls yet, so it remains to be seen how long players will have to deal with the Warzone Groza iron sight glitch in Season 3.

Hopefully, all of the frustration that it is currently causing players trying to use this Black Ops Cold War weapon in their Gulag and gunfights on Verdansk ’84 or Rebirth Island is something that will be a thing of the past soon.
