NICKMERCS explains why he doesn’t want old POIs to return in Warzone Season 4

After the Warzone Season 4 reveal trailer appeared to show an old POI, NICKMERCS has said why he doesn’t want it to return.




After seeing Dam in the Season 4 trailer, Nicholas “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff has explained why it, and any other older POIs, returning is a bad idea.

Points of interest represent the heart and soul of a map. Without them, the land that Warzone is contested on is literally just that – meaningless land. This is why Verdansk is full of lots of different areas such as Array, Nakatomi Plaza, and a lot more.

After Verdansk was nuked and went back to 1984, we obviously got to see an earlier version of the map. This meant new areas and remixed versions of modern POIs. Dam was one of the locations that were removed in Season 3, but the Season 4 trailer has hinted that it might be about to return.

Nick has explained to his viewers why this isn’t the best idea in the world for Call of Duty: Warzone.

“Just recently Call of Duty released a cinematic trailer for Season 4, a bunch of new stuff shown briefly in this trailer. One big thing that a lot of people noticed is that the Dam was back in the game,” Nick said.

He quickly clarifies that Dam was “not my favorite place to fight” and doesn’t feel it compares favorably to other POIs in the game.

Not only, but Nick makes a great point concerning the nature of fresh locations, a criticism Warzone Season 2 faced for being too safe and not changing things up.

“I’m kinda looking forward to more new things, things we haven’t seen yet. I loved, loved, loved the Plaza they put down there with the Vault, the money, and I’ve been real vocal about that. I want to see some more type of that stuff, not going back to building what we were already playing.”

If Dam is going to be added as its own area and not replace anything, then it might not be the end of the world. But it would make sense in terms of the game’s timeline for it to slowly restore the old version of the map until it resembled its old self.

However, Activision has already confirmed that Verdansk’s map will never go back to its original design, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.
