However, the past few months have been a roller coaster ride for Call of Duty Warzone. Content creators, pro players, and millions of casual players have been criticizing the developers for a wide range of problems.

Apparently, there are many technical failures like desync and packet loss. Moreover, perks such as Dead Silence, and guns like the FFAR and AUG are ruining the meta. Lastly, the skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) system is too strong for casual play, and the loot distribution on the map seems vague.

It won’t be an overstatement that Battle Royale is the most popular genre of gaming at the moment. Naturally, every new game in the market deals a tremendous blow to the existing titles. Fortnite dethroned PUBG within a year of its release, but a large part of its user-base shifted to Apex Legends in 2019. Similarly, many players then moved on to Call of Duty Warzone in 2020, in search of something new.

Jack CouRage Dunlop and FaZe Clan’s Nickmercs had also talked about the importance of a Battle Royale mode in reaching a larger audience. Hence, it is safe to assume that Battlefield 6 and Halo Infinite will further divide the millions of players who currently play Fortnite, Apex Legends, or Call of Duty Warzone.
