Warzone’s latest Rough Nugget blueprint may have some issues with it, as players express concern over the strong flashing light effects for those with epilepsy.

Warzone Season 4 has introduced a bunch of content to the game, with a new Red Door fast travel system and even some new Crashed Satellite locations across the map.

Further, like any season, players have also been gifted new weapons, like the C58 and MG 82. However, the latest issue isn’t surrounding the new weapons. It actually concerns a new Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint for the KSP.

Reddit user Peskybarbecue73 pointed out the issue with the new Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint.

They stated that it may need an “epilepsy warning” due to the extreme flashing colors effect the weapon gives off.

Users in the comments also had strong opinions towards the Rough Nugget blueprint, with one even stating: “I don’t suffer from epilepsy, but wtf, even that hurt my head and eyes.”

You can find the video on the official Warzone subreddit here, but we urge caution for photosensitive individuals to be careful, as the video does show an array of bright flashing lights.

The video shows how strong these effects are, with the lights flashing different colors and even spreading over the whole Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint that has quickly caught the eye of the Call of Duty community even though this particular SMG is not extremely popular and is not used in the majority of loadouts by players.

Not to say the Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint isn’t nice. It’s a well-made skin with great colors and a unique selling point, mimicking a gold nugget perhaps as a reference to the Salt Mines location.

However, many community members responded with the idea that it may need to be toned down a little or come with a warning for those who don’t take well to strong flashing lights.

On Caldera, transport seems more prominent than ever, with the classic 4×4 cars and Motobikes making a return, as well as new additions such as the dogfighting planes.

There is also a glimpse of a new large vehicle that has a huge machine gun on the back which players can operate.

A new drop ship

We also got a glimpse at the new WWII-themed planed that will be carrying players over Caldera each match.

The trailer also featured a sneak peek at the new drop cinematic.

New mode

Vanguard Royale will be a new mode available in Warzone Pacific Season 1, which is actually the only mode in which the dogfight planes are available.

There was also the appearance of a Komodo Dragon and Hyena, which will be new companions available in the Warzone Pacific Season 1 Battle Pass.

New Victory cut-scene

At the very end of the trailer, instead of a Helicopter getting you out of the gas after achieving victory, this time you enter a truck that will board a ship and get you out of Caldera safely.

Returning features

Ziplines are back

The grapple ziplines players are used to scaling buildings with on Verdansk are also in Caldera.

Contracts return

During the trailer, a sniper takes out another player and a voice line plays that says “Contract complete.”

That’s everything we picked up on in the new Warzone Pacific trailer. For more, make sure you check out how you can play on Caldera early.

Warzone QA testers stage walkout days before Pacific Caldera launch

On December 6 Raven Software QA testers staged a walkout to protest the company’s sudden layoffs that began last week.

Warzone Raven walkout

In what is set to be a busy period for Raven Software, QA testers have staged a walkout as a response to layoffs announced by the company on December 3.

On December 3, the gaming industry received the news of significant layoffs taking place at Raven Software. The layoffs mainly involved the Quality Assurance team that works on Warzone content. Just three days later and most of a team of around 40 members are protesting the decision.

With Warzone Pacific’s highly-anticipated launch only two days away, one would imagine that this is a vital time for the company. Those who engaged in the walkout have claimed that they will not return until the layoffs are reversed.

Raven’s Quality Assurance testers stated that the layoffs began on December 3 as individuals were brought into meetings to receive the news. The layoffs came as a shock to the majority of the QA team seeing as they’d been assured that positive changes to the payment structure were on their way.

The detailed statement from the workers below confirms that these changes are arriving after “five weeks of overtime and, before an anticipated end of year crunch.” Their contracts are set to be terminated on January 28th.

The QA testers hope that the walkout will result in permanent full-time positions for the entire team.

A spokesperson from Raven’s parent company Activision has responded to the protest in a recent statement, “We are converting approximately 500 temporary workers to full-time employees in the coming months. Unfortunately, as part of this change, we also have notified 20 temporary workers across studios that their contracts would not be extended.”

It remains to be seen if Activision’s response will encourage employees to return to work. This is going to be a vital week for Activision between the ongoing protests and the launch of new in-game content across Vanguard and Warzone.

For the latest updates concerning this story and the slatted release of Warzone Pacific: Caldera stay tuned to Charlie INTEL.

FaZe Swagg reveals Vanguard weapon that will dominate Warzone Pacific

As Call of Duty players are gearing up for Warzone Pacific, FaZe Swagg claims this Vanguard weapon is going to dominate from the start. 

Published

M1 Garand Swagg

Warzone Pacific is right around the corner and players are starting to wonder which Vanguard weapons will make their mark. FaZe Swagg believes this Marksman Rifle is poised to take over. 

Alongside a brand new map, Warzone players will receive an extensive selection of new weapons to choose from. On December 8, players will get the chance to test out a whopping 40 Vanguard weapons

Of the 40 new additions, Warzone superstar Swagg has his eye on one in particular. Predicting meta shifts is no easy task but Swagg certainly has the pedigree and experience to back up his claims. 

M1 Garand Heirloom blueprint

When Swagg hits Caldera’s sandy shores on December 8, he’ll be doing so with M1 Garand in hand. Interestingly enough, Vanguard’s M1 Garand has been available as a weapon in Warzone as of Season 6

Swagg was able to test the weapon in Verdansk and he believes its excellent qualities will carry over to Caldera. Of the 40 new weapons, the M1 Garand is one of three Marksman Rifles. As evidenced in Swagg’s video, players will need a steady trigger finger to utilize the semi-automatic weapon. 

M1 Garand Heirloom attachments

M1 Garand heirloom blueprint attachments
  • Muzzle: Mk. 2 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Cooper 25″ Custom
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Cooper Adjustable
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: Extended Mags
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Reargrip
  • Perk 1: Acquisition Perk 1

The Heirloom M1 Garand blueprint is available through the Season 6 battle pass once players hit the 72nd tier. 

Unfortunately, these are preset attachments that currently cannot be adjusted in Warzone. Once Warzone Pacific launches on December 8, players will be able to tweak this weapon’s attachments in Warzone and make it more powerful.

For now, you may want to focus on gaining weapon level XP with the M1 Garand in Vanguard. With more attachments at your disposal, you’ll be able to easily adapt to the Warzone meta. This loadout will produce the best results in Vanguard’s Multiplayer.


Stay tuned to CharlieINTEL throughout Vanguard Season 1 and Warzone Pacific launch week for all the latest news and updates.
