Regular Bounty Contracts removed from Warzone following Most Wanted addition

Published

on

It appears Infinity Ward has removed the classic Bounty Contract from Call of Duty: Warzone following the newest update and replaced it with the Most Wanted Contract in-game, which has caused many fans to be upset.

The new update, which dropped on April 28, brought in a brand new contract called Most Wanted. This contract makes it that your team becomes the bounty for every other team still in-game. If you survive the bounty time, then the reward is bringing back all of your fallen teammates immediately.

However, by adding this contract, Infinity Ward appears to have also removed the standard Bounty Contract from Warzone completely. Fans can only find the Most Wanted contract in-game.

Streamers have responded to this by asking why Infinity Ward would think removing it would be a good idea. Ninja said the regular contracts are “high risk and reward” and were “well balanced.”

Teepee goes on to say it is a “very very bad decision” in a tweet. Call of Duty League Caster Joe “Merk” Deluca also commented on it being removed:

Infinity Ward has not said why they removed the regular Bounties from Warzone or when they plan to bring it back. Standard bounties were a nice way to get money while finding enemy teams on the map.

Aydan explains how BOCW’s Ghost can stop Warzone campers

Aydan feels that the Ghost perk in Warzone should be tinkered with to turn it into the ultimate anti-camper tool.

Call of Duty streamer, Aydan Conrad, believes that the Ghost perk in Black Ops Cold War is well handled. He feels it should be implemented into Warzone in order to discourage camping.

Avoiding detection is a valuable skill in Call of Duty multiplayer matches. Your chances of winning are increased if the enemy doesn’t see the attack coming. If you value a stealthy approach, then there’s a handy perk that can assist you.

The Ghost perk in Modern Warfare and Warzone makes you completely invisible to enemy UAVs and Heartbeat sensors. The Black Ops Cold War version has the same benefit but only when you’re moving. This makes campers detectable – even with the perk equipped.

Call of Duty streamer, Aydan Conrad, went on the CharlieIntel Podcast where he discussed what he thinks of the newest title in the franchise. He took the opportunity to go on record and say that he loves the way the Ghost perk functions in BOCW.

In fact, he’s such a fan that he wants to see this integrated into Warzone. You can hear it from the man himself, below.

The former Fortnite pro and Warzone player has a lot of experience with Call of Duty titles and Battle Royale games. He made it clear that he prefers how the Ghost Perk works Black Ops Cold War and wants to see this implemented elsewhere.

I really like how [Black Ops Cold War] has Ghost: it only works if you’re moving,” he said. “So if you’re camping in a corner, Ghost won’t work. I think that might be a great addition.”

He elaborated that this is because it gets annoying when someone is camping, and you can’t detect them – which is understandable since this tends to slow down the game while you play hide-n-seek with your opponent. Keeping them on the move would make the match much livelier.

Ayden isn’t the first player to complain against campers. A lot of Warzone fans would rejoice if this change were implemented. We may see Activision rework the Ghost perk this way since they already confirmed that Warzone would be integrated for Modern Warfare & Black Ops Cold War.

Leak reveals Alcatraz to return as ‘Rebirth Island’ in Warzone

A social media leak has revealed that Alcatraz is all-set to return as Rebirth Island in Call of Duty Warzone for more Battle Royale action.

Published

Originally making waves in Black Ops 4’s Blackout as a Battle Royale map, Alcatraz appears to be making its return and is set to invade the Warzone as ‘Rebirth Island.

When the Season One roadmap was wheeled out originally, eagle-eyed users spotted some text that translated into Rebirth Island. Despite being a place you visit in Black Ops, Rebirth Island in this context is loosely based on the world-famous prison – Alcatraz – and is expanded to be a hotbed for battle royale activity.

We now have some potential confirmation of the incoming changes thanks to a leak that has made the rounds on Twitter.

Rebirth Island leaked

We’re still a few days away from the launch of Season One of Black Ops Cold War on December 10. But Adi Source on Twitter has been able to uncover information regarding the new season’s content.

The image, from data miners, shows the logo and feature image for Warzone’s new map. (Image will probably be taken down by DMCA soon).

Reusing old content is certainly not an unfamiliar concept to Call of Duty fans as the series has constantly revitalized many of its previous maps and placed them in newer games e.g Nuketown.

Warzone will not be getting a seventh season and will instead continue its legacy with the forthcoming launch of its service alongside Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

The rest of the content remains to be seen, but we’ll update you when we find out more.

Season One is set to begin on December 10, and information on what to expect will surely be released soon. Stay tuned.

Warzone pro 100T Tommey says Custom Games don’t work for competitive

Professional Warzone player, Tommey, takes to Twitter to comment on Warzone tournament formats.

Published

Professional Warzone player “Tommey” took to Twitter to talk about his take on the competitive Warzone format.

Competitive Warzone has traditionally consisted of a “kill race” format, where players randomly queue into a duo, trios, or quads game over and over again in an attempt to have the highest squad kill record in a set time frame. It’s interesting to watch and a great formula for the cameras. It sparks the interests of millions of viewers and makes for some great highlights.

Due to this format, there has always been a demand for a private Warzone match format for these tournaments, where Warzone pros can all face each other in a single game, where the winner takes all.

This would be an interesting experience for viewers, and would allow for tense moments between content creators and professional players. However, for the pros, it might not be as much of an enjoyable experience.

When 100 Thieves player, Tommey, came across a tweet from Cloudfuel regarding this topic, he took to a Twitter thread to respond.

Tommey referred to Warzone as “easy to play”, and “not great for competition,” citing the lack of advanced mechanics when compared to games like Fortnite.

The basis of his argument derives from this, which is a fair point to make. However, games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and H1Z1 (when it was still relevant) had private servers for large competitions.

While there is an argument to be made for private matches, Tommey makes a fair point. In terms of competitive integrity, if professional players get in a large server, it might become a slow Warzone game. Frustration will arise quickly among players since most of the winners will be those who are better positioned when the circle begins to close.

While the games may be tense, the engagements will be scarce and players will feel like the game feels more “random” than skillful.

In terms of entertainment value, kill races are the more exciting events to watch. If a content creator is eliminated, they find another game to play and try again. If it happens in a private Warzone tournament format, the streamer can’t play the game and may quickly become bored; thus, viewers will feel less engaged with the event.

While the kill race format will most likely be the competitive Warzone formula in the future for many reasons, it still would be great to occasionally see a custom games format on occasion with top talent. Perhaps there is some ruleset or game type to support the format in a proper way that’s fun for viewers and competitors.
