The Call of Duty: Warzone community is tired of the seeing their favorite Battle Royale title in a hot mess.

Warzone players with Combat Scout unaffected by flashes

Season 5 introduced a lot of new weapons for players to use on Verdansk. Other than that, the developers at Raven Software have also added in a new perk called the Combat Scout. The perk allows players to highlight enemies if they damage them slightly. With the Combat Scout, players can know the location of any opponent even if they hide behind cover. Additionally, many of the walls used for covers don’t prevent bullets from passing through, which makes this perk highly overpowered in the game.

However, to make matters worse, it seems this perk is also quite immune to flashes. Enemies use flashes to impair the vision of players while attacking them. But, with Combat Scout, players can correctly see the position of opponents if they damage them and become highlighted. This renders flashes to be useless in Call of Duty: Warzone.
