Call of Duty Warzone: Angry Fans React to the Recent Rebirth Island Snub

Published 12/30/2020, 11:06 AM EST


Call of Duty’s battle royale is facing a backlash from the community for the lack of new content. This saw several high-profile streamers walking out while others continued to raise the issue. Right around the first week of December, Activision had made a major announcement of the biggest content drop with season 1 that also merged Call of Duty Warzone with Black ops Cold War. This move was seen as a welcome addition to the game that had been stagnating for some time now.

This changed the game on its head by adding a plethora of new content like a new BR map, weapons and a new Rebirth Island. The addition of Rebirth Island with a trio mode was a positive move that fans really enjoyed.

In a surprising move, the gaming studio revamped the island map and replaced the trio mode with a quad that sent shock-waves through the community.

The recent changes to the Call of Duty Warzone not appreciated

Reddit users were puzzled by the recent change that saw the removal of trio mode from Rebirth Island. The community was already in love with the game mode and the meta that revolved around three players. This sudden change to the game and relatively shrinking the map down fetched negative reactions from the fans.

A post made in the R/CODWarzone section saw disgruntled players discussing the issue.

Why did they remove the Rebirth Trios ? from CODWarzone

The users in the thread complained about the changes and how tired of the game they have become. The trio mode was one of the best game modes for the Rebirth island in season 1, but it seems like the studio had other plans. Some fans took to Twitter to vent their frustrations with the DMR meta rants that ruled the trends.

Here are some tweets the fans posted to vent out their feelings about the game, the DMR meta, and recent changes made to the rebirth island.

Angry fans continue to berate the game regarding the dominant meta circling around a few weapons that have frustrated the fans.

Something has to be done to address all the issues the community is facing. Not so long ago, players discovered game-breaking glitches in both Rebirth Island and the new battle royale map, Fireteam, that attracted a negative reaction.

The glitch on the Rebirth Island caused the players to respawn infinite times, while a glitch with the new attack helicopter in ‘Fireteam’ rendered them invisible.
