  3. In rare cases, “Detonating Dirty Bomb” may stay on the player’s HUD longer than intended.
  4. Nuketown 84: Players can capture hardpoint outside of the yellow house.
  5. Players report an inability to vote for maps when matchmaking.

Changes to expect in Warzone in the Call of Duty BOCW update

Weapon tuning is a major part of any big update, and Warzone requires fine-tuning immediately. DMR-14 and the Mac-10 are two broken guns in Verdansk currently. Both need a nerf before Warzone becomes annoying as it had with the Grau or the Bruen meta. Therefore, some range and damage reduction can be expected in the dominant Warzone weapons.

In addition, Rebirth Island might get its own personal Gulag. Right now, the only Gulag map in Warzone is the Washrooms. This piece of information was making a lot of noise when the news of Season 1 first came out. This may or may not be added to the game in the next update.

Lastly, the Dark Aether camo update for Warzone should be in the game soon. Right now, players who have grinded out the Dark Aether camo in Zombies cannot use it in Warzone. The reason might be the recent integration of BOCW and Warzone. Slowly and steadily, however, we can expect everything from BOCW being made available in Verdansk.

This update will not arrive before early January in all probability because of the holiday break. Watch out for a new Warzone experience in 2021.
