YouTuber Jack “JackFrags” Mason has demonstrated the many advantages PC players have over console players, saying the developers may need to make changes to even the playing field.

It has now become commonplace for games to feature crossplay with PC, Xbox, and PlayStation players able to party up and play each other on the same servers. While this has been a massive step forward for online gaming, hardware can provide significant advantages to some.

While console Warzone players get aim-assist, PC players receive a plethora of advantages over their Xbox and PlayStation counterparts. On March 14, YouTuber JackFrags demonstrated these major advantages PC players benefit from.

Warzone's Roze skin in a dark area

The ‘sweaty Roze skin‘ has been a contentious issue in Warzone since its introduction in MW Season 5 because it perfectly blends into the dark corners of Verdansk. JackFrags shows how PC players using NVIDIA hardware can use filters to change how the game looks.

By standing in one of Verdansk’s apartment staircases, the Roze skin is completely concealed in the shadowy corner. After applying NVIDIA filters, the stairway becomes much brighter and Roze is standing there plain as day. With these filters, you can spot players who would usually be concealed in these dark corners of Superstore, garages, and staircases.

If you’re on PC and want to use these NVIDIA filters yourself, you can follow our guide on the best PC settings for Warzone Season 2.

Console Warzone players have long been begging Activision for Warzone to have a field of view slider. Most shooters such as Battlefield and even Black Ops Cold War have this slider, but it’s a notable exclusion from the console versions of Modern Warfare and Warzone. JackFrags demonstrated how powerful a higher FOV is.

Console FOV is around 80, so JackFrags set his game to this. Everything was quite zoomed in, and he could only see what was directly in front of him. After boosting his FOV to 105, which is around the standard for PC players, he could see a player off to his side that was completely cut off by the field of view. Having this high FOV allows you to see more of what’s in front of you, giving a huge advantage to those that can use it.

And on top of these advantages, PC players also benefit from higher frames-per-second, sharper visuals, and more in-game customization settings.

“When you can alter the look of the game so much on PC, and make those skins stand out, it does raise a few eyebrows and you think, well, is it really that fair?” said the YouTuber.

While PC undeniably has these advantages, JackFrags puts it to the developers to even the playing field. He suggests blocking the NVIDIA filters like another shooter, Hunt: Showdown, did in the past. Unless Warzone gets a next-gen version for the latest consoles, PC players will remain at a significant advantage over their console enemies.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone is set to being on April 22, with an initial event teased for April 21 starting at 12PM PT. Exact launch times for the new content will be announced soon.
