Into its second season of integration with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the massively popular Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale has met with a few hiccups along the way as the game continues to be tweaked. With the Black Ops Cold War weapons receiving nerfs since Season 2 started, some players looking to find the right gun are getting frustrated with being unable to test their loadouts quickly and easily.
While there are a number of content creators who produce videos making recommendations on best setups, sometimes fans like to try their own unique builds, and testing takes time. Players like NICKMERCS might have LC10 SMG loadouts that hit hard, but perhaps a player wants to try something that the pros and streamers aren't talking about. If someone wants to create a setup for the Model 680 shotgun, there are few places to test it, so fans are looking for Raven Software to add a firing range to Warzone.
Picking up momentum online is a request for Call of Duty: Warzone to add a firing range for players to test weapon builds. Fans insist it doesn't need to be fancy or elaborate, it can even just be a wall with targets on it, but the need is apparent. Fans point to previous Call of Duty titles that included a feature like this, including COD: Advanced Warfare, and COD: World War II. A firing range would mean that players don't have to dive into Plunder to test weapons, representing a simple quality of life change that many in the community would appreciate.
It wouldn't be unprecedented for Call of Duty developers to respond to fan requests. Treyarch recently took fan feedback on its Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps and implemented changes to make them more player-friendly. Fans identified areas for improvement, where unfair advantages could be gained, and the response by the developer has been well received. Communication with the player base goes a long way to keeping fans happy and continuing to play.
As games with continuous support become more common, part of that equation is that the support works both ways. It becomes more of an ongoing dialogue between developer and fans, where fan support for a game is contingent on the content being produced by the developer, and if the game isn't delivering or listening to feedback those fans may jump ship. The rumors that Call of Duty: Warzone is heading for a complete map change will be a real test of that relationship, as fans may have strong opinions about a new map. It might be a stretch to expect a firing range to show up in Warzone, but fans remain hopeful.
Call of Duty: Warzone is no stranger to bugs and glitches, though the latest is one of the most intriguing seen in the free-to-play game thus far. For whatever reason, some Call of Duty: Warzone players are finding an extra opponent in their Gulag fights, though they are not exactly threatening.
Call of Duty: Warzone’s second chance battles via the Gulag are one of the game’s standout features, helping it to stand out from other battle royale games in a meaningful way. Since their debut, these fights have always taken place between two dead players, with winners being given a second chance at life and losers needing to spectate or leave the match. However, a new bug is seeing players fighting with two opponents rather than one.
