Warzone players have long wanted changes to the powerful Stopping Power Rounds Field Upgrade, so Raven Software reduced its spawn rate in the Season 3 Reloaded update and explained why they made the change.
Introduced in Modern Warfare (2019), Field Upgrades are powerful devices that you can use to gain the upper hand in battle. Examples of these are Dead Silence which silences your footsteps, Munitions Box to resupply your ammo, and Stopping Power Rounds which make your weapon do a ton more damage.
Some of these Field Upgrades made their way to Warzone where they can be found on the ground, in Supply Crates, or bought from a Buy Station. Players have long complained about the power of Stopping Power and Dead Silence in the battle royale, so Raven Software reduced Stopping Power’s spawn rate in Warzone.
As part of the Season 3 Reloaded update, in which they buffed Cold War Snipers and teased the removal of Berthas from Solos, Raven also confirmed they’ve reduced the amount of Stopping Power that can be found in Verdansk ’84.
In the official patch notes, Warzone devs stated that “Stopping Power Field Upgrade spawn rates have been reduced substantially across all modes.” They then went into detail about why this change was made.
“Given Stopping Power’s efficacy and lack of counter play options, we felt its power level was at odds with its availability,” they explained. “We want to create more scenarios where a measured choice about how and when to utilize Field Upgrades is not just rewarded but encouraged.”
They continued to say that they felt “There was hardly an incorrect way to apply Stopping Power.” As soon as you found it, you could load it into your weapon straight away and carry on, likely finding it again soon.
“Our hope by drastically reducing its presence within Warzone is that we introduce a small strategy-based control,” they concluded. “Those who loot efficiently increase their odds of finding it.”
Members of the community such as Tyler “TeeP” Polchow and Jack “CouRage” Dunlop have welcomed the change, although TeeP said, “Let’s hit deady (Dead Silence) next.”
It’s clear that Warzone’s developers are listening to the community’s feedback, so it’s highly likely that Raven are keeping an eye on Dead Silence, as well as the “broken” Streamer Mode that caused issues in a recent $100k Warzone tournament.
