Fans Are Unhappy With Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Challenges Coinciding

Published 02/08/2021, 10:13 AM EST


Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War players are frustrated with the game yet again. Apart from the random glitches and bugs, BOCW has found other ways to irk the players. A large part of the player base plays the game solely with the purpose of grinding camos.

However, all the hard work to procure the top level weapon and Operator camos are going to waste. This is because challenges in BOCW demand that players play Warzone to complete them. This is highly unacceptable for most players.

The frustration is understandable because when people pay $70 to buy a game, Treyarch cannot ask them to go to another game to complete challenges. The distinction between the two games seems lost to the devs. Ever since the merger took place between Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, these problems have been a constant.

Do not get us wrong, nobody is disappointed with the merger. The integration added a load of content to Warzone, which is after all a free-to-play game. Therefore, Verdansk regulars surely appreciate the new content which includes weapons and Operators.

However, the same cannot be said for BOCW players. A similar issue rose with the challenges for the Stitch Operator. Now the issue has again come back with the challenges for the Operator Park.

Redditors cry foul on Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War subreddit

Reddit user TLucas123 made a post on the issue, asking Treyarch to allow players to unlock Operators on both games. The post currently has over 4.5k upvotes, but no devs have replied to it.

3arc, please, let us unlock the skins on both games modes, i really want this skin for Park but i don’t want to download warzone to unlock, PLEASE STOP PUTING WARZONE CHALLENGES ON COLD WAR from blackopscoldwar

This issue is frustrating for both PC and console players of BOCW. Warzone belongs to a different genre altogether and further, it has a huge download size, especially on PC. It seems like Warzone is Treyarch’s favorite child, and players are being forced to play a game that is broken most of the time.

While it is completely up to the devs to change this format for the in-game challenges, complaints on this issue will not stop anytime soon. Here’s hoping the devs find better logic to provide than force players to play Warzone for an Operator skin.
