Warzone players call for smoke grenades to get major buff

In Warzone Season 4, tactical equipment are extremely useful for getting the edge on your opponent, but perhaps smoke grenades need a buff.

As stun and flash grenades continue to dominate Warzone in Season 4, some players now call for the smoke grenades to receive a buff to balance out the tactical equipment method.

Warzone Season 4 has seen various changes to both weapons and equipment, with updates to the Specialist Bonus and even the Riot Shield.

Regardless of these changes and meta updates, it seems players aren’t satisfied with the tactical equipment balancing, with some players suggesting a buff for smoke grenades may be needed.

Reddit SoupIsAHotSmoothie put a post up with the caption, “If done properly, smoke would be an amazing tactical in this game.”

Smoke is currently the weakest tactical in the game, with not many players actually using it over the Flash and Stun grenades.

Although it can be useful for distracting opponents and gaining some cover when collecting your loadout, it isn’t worth it when you could take something like a stun or flash, which will give you the advantage in a fight.

Further, even the Heartbeat Sensor is more useful in the current update of the game, purely due to the advantage it can give you when you are in combat.

The suggestion from SoupIsAHotSmoothie is as so:

“This entire game is based upon fire and movement, cover and concealment, and tactical withdrawals when the option of offence is lost. Smoke would be an incredible enabler of these tactics if they fine tune it to be more smoke-like. It needs to: rise higher, last 25% longer, and stretch with the “wind.”

It seems players in the comments also agree with the suggestion, with one stating that they agree:

“Agreed. With how many open areas there are with no cover and how fast the ttk is. It gives you a fighting chance to rotate without having to use a vehicle.”

It would be great to see a shift towards balancing tactical equipment in Warzone, as it would give Warzone more options and variety in combat.

When does Cold War & Warzone Season 6 end? Vanguard Season 1 start date

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 is set to make way for Vanguard Season 1, here’s everything we know about when it will happen.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 is beginning to wind down, with Call of Duty: Vanguard on the horizon. We break down when the final BOCW and Warzone season ends, and the first Vanguard chapter starts.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 is going out with a bang thanks to its Halloween-themed event.

The patch notes for The Haunting have confirmed that there will be no Season 6 Reloaded, which have been commonplace over in recent months.

Now that we know that Verdansk’s final season won’t be Reloaded, when will Season 6 end and Vanguard Season 1 start?

Cold War & Warzone Season 6 end date

The sixth season of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is due to end on Thursday, December 2, 2021.

Season 5 ended on October 7, the first Thursday of the month, and it appears that Season 6 will follow the same while sticking roughly to the two-month structure that Raven and Treyarch used previously.

As mentioned earlier, there will be no Reloaded update this time around in order to make way for the long-awaited arrival of Vanguard integration into Warzone.

This isn’t to say that Black Ops Cold War will be forgotten, as Modern Warfare has still received content updates in the last year.

Vanguard Season 1 start date

Call of Duty: Vanguard cast

We’re expecting Season 1 of Vanguard, both in the standalone game and Warzone, to kick off in early December.

Cold War Season 6 ends on December 2, 2021, but there could be some transition time between the two like there was between Modern Warfare Season 6 and BOCW Season 1.

Vanguard will have been out nearly by this point, making it the ideal time to bring in the new Warzone map and WW2 weapons set to drop with the first season, as well as the long-awaited introduction of anti-cheat.

We’re still awaiting official confirmation on when Vanguard Season 1 will begin, so be sure to check back here for future updates.

Horrifying Warzone The Haunting bug turns player into 3rd-person monstrosity

A creepy new Warzone Halloween bug turned an Operator into a third-person monster with a mangled body and arms drooping to the side.

Warzone’s The Haunting Halloween event is here, and one player got more than they bargained for after a new bug turned their character into a deformed third-person monstrosity.

Warzone’s Haunting event is here, bringing horror movie icon Ghostface to a nighttime version of Verdansk. There’s plenty to be scared of as The Haunting event has sought to make Warzone even more intense and scary, with Scream’s Ghostface whispering in your ear, jumpscares in chests, and your Fear Meter ever rising.

But the scares ramped up even more as a player was hit with a presumably unintentional new bug that brought body horror to Verdansk.

Warzone the haunting event gameplay

‘chizel3d’ was playing the new Ghosts of Verdansk LTM and parachuted into Hospital. But, before they could land, the game switched to third-person, giving a full view of the horrors before them.

They were shocked and confused to see that their Operator was almost curled up inside themself, with their arms drooping down the sides and their gear bunched up on their back like a cursed Quasimodo.

Hovering above the ground, they ran around Hospital, picking up loot as they went. But with the distorted arms hanging down by the sides, chizel3d wasn’t able to pick up or fire any weapons.

Players in the replies were equally as shocked, with one user saying it’s “creepier than anything in the event so far.” chizel3d’s tweet was in reply to streamer and Warzone pro IceManIsaac, who said, “I’m seeing this in my nightmares tonight.”

However, chizel3d did fix the horrifying bug later by climbing on a ladder. Their POV immediately switched back to regular first-person and stayed that way for the rest of the game.

It’s unclear how widespread this issue is, as Raven Software hasn’t responded on their Trello Board or Twitter account.
