Call of Duty: Warzone players have called upon the developers to introduce a quitting penalty for duos, trios, and squads as players are fed up with having teammates leave before the game is over.
Since the September 23 update, players have been noticing performance issues that have been running the experience. As well as these issues, players are now calling for developers to fix another, which involves introducing a leavers penalty.
Warzone players aren’t the first battle royale community to ask the developers to introduce a leavers penalty, as Apex Legends now has a similar system for ranked and Arenas, incentivizing players to stay in games longer.
This is the issue Reddit user Binarycold has been having in Warzone, as they put up a post explaining what it’s like to play “Warzone with strangers.”
In the post, the player seems to be fed with random teammates leaving games before it’s even done, stating that every game mode may as well be called solos or solos pending “since no one can ever stay in a full game.”
The user then states that the developers should “implement some penalty for quitting out, this is ridiculous!” Clearly, this player isn’t the only one who feels this way, as others in the comments also share a similar opinion:
“I’d love to see a deserter stat. Only applies on control initiated drops, not poor connection. I’d like people to be notified if the team they left won it too, or came second and might have won if the awol player would have stayed.
People have no tenacity any more. If they have a rough landing, they bolt. Where’s the grit? Softies”
It’s very frustrating when teammates leave the game when you could potentially recover from a bad landing or win a game despite being disadvantaged by a teammate dying.
We’re sure many teammates have missed out on great games and even victories as they have left way too early and would undoubtedly appreciate the developers introducing a leavers penalty to discourage this from happening.
With Warzone integrating with Vanguard in the future, there is always a possibility for the addition of a quitting penalty to be one of the changes made to the Call of Duty battle royale.

JGOD reveals Warzone’s best long-range weapons after Season 4 update
Warzone specialist JGOD has revealed his best long-range weapon picks following the Season 4 update that affected the meta.
Call of Duty expert and Warzone extraordinaire JGOD has analyzed the many long-range weapon options and revealed the best guns to use following the Season 4 update.
Warzone devs are constantly working on balancing the battle royale’s pool of weapons through updates. Seasonal updates usually provide a ton of buffs and nerfs, which tends to leave the meta in an awkward state as players rush to adapt to the changes.
With Season 3’s dominant STG44 firmly out of the picture, new long-range options have emerged in Season 4. Luckily, Warzone expert JGOD is around to break down which weapons are viable in Season 4 following buffs and nerfs.
In JGOD‘s video highlighting the top long-range Warzone weapons after the Season 4 update, he breaks down the current state of the meta.
The stats expert clearly separates long-range options into three categories: meta, top tier viable, and viable. For the sake of breaking down the best long-range weapons, JGOD sticks to revealing the weapons he believes fit the meta and top tier viable categories.
He uses these categories to explain how the meta has changed since the Season 4 update. Prior to the update, the gap between the top meta weapons and top tier viable weapons was much larger.
Now, players can find a ton of success using top tier viable weapons: “You can use other things besides the absolute meta and not be hardcore penalized.”
However, the expert predicts that another NZ-41 nerf should arrive soon enough, which will result in the long-range weapon meta becoming incredibly varied: “The nerf will come through again for the NZ and that will push it out and all these weapons that are top tier viable will essentially be the meta.”
Following the NZ-41, JGOD picks the BAR as the next best long-range weapon. Despite its slow fire rate, the BAR is one of the best long-range weapons in Warzone thanks to how easy it is to utilize.
The majority of JGOD’s video is spent highlighting top tier viable weapons that are set to benefit from an upcoming NZ-41 nerf: “You’re going to be able to use almost anything you want as soon as this next NZ nerf comes in.”
Aside from the NZ-41 and BAR, here’s the list of long-range weapons that players should use to maximize Warzone success:
If JGOD’s prediction is correct, it seems like the meta is heading in a very interesting direction throughout Season 4. Warzone players can expect to choose from a ton of viable options thanks to a level playing field.

One-shot Crossbow loadout to disrupt Warzone meta after Season 4 buff
After receiving a buff with the Season 4 update, the Crossbow could shake up the Warzone meta with a one-shot kill loadout.
Warzone’s Crossbow has always been a tricky weapon to master, but a Season 4 buff has made it a dominant force capable of one-shot killing players with ease.
Modern Warfare’s Crossbow Marksman Rifle has been around since the inception of Warzone. The Crossbow is a unique weapon that has a steep learning curve, but even if players mastered the weapon, it never truly dominated Warzone lobbies.
All that is set to change in Season 4 after a major buff has upped the Crossbow’s bullet velocity by a whopping 27.2%. As a result, several Warzone players are now singing the praises of the unconventional weapon and tip it to shake up the meta.
Reddit user theGivvyOfficial posted a clip of their gameplay using the Crossbow to the Warzone subreddit. The montage is proof that with the right Crossbow loadout, the weapon can one-shot kill players from considerable distances.
The comments and discussion reveal that the title of the post is somewhat sarcastic, but there’s no denying that the Crossbow can be devastating in the right hands.
While it won’t necessarily be the number one meta weapon in Season 4, it has the potential to outperform some of the best medium-range options if players are looking to test out a different style of play.
Warzone Crossbow loadout attachments
- Cable: 28-Strand Cable
- Bolt: FTAC Fury 20″ Bolts
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
- Arms: XRK Thunder 200 Lb
This Crossbow loadout will thrive in the hands of accurate players. Thanks to the FTAC Fury 20″ Bolts that deal damage even after they hit their mark, the Crossbow produces one-shot kills consistently.
Of course, there’s no denying the weapon’s major weakness, and players were quick to point that out in the comments: “Yeah it’s s**** in close quarters combat. It’s decent for medium range engagements like you see in this clip,— It also has a steep learning curve.”
If you miss your shot from a short distance, the weapon’s brutally slow reload can put you in an unfavorable position. However, if you learn to master the weapon and hit a high percentage of your shots, the sky is the limit for the Crossbow in Season 4.
