Call of Duty: Warzone releases update that gets rid of pesky helicopters. Will this be a good thing or a bad thing for gamers?
Game developer Infinity Ward revealed that the new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes with a side-by-side update for Call of Duty: Warzone.
The studio will disable the use of helicopters in Warzone for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
What prompt them to make this move?
Flying vehicles represent a part of the whole Call of Duty battle royal experience. This practice went on for years even included in the previous Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode.
However, the update for Warzone might be temporary. Here are the full patch notes for you to check out.
Right now, Infinity Ward withholds explanation as to why helicopters in this standalone battle royale title are no longer able.
However, a Warzone subreddit shows that helicopters are actually affecting the whole gameplay balance.
In addition, a number of players continuously report problems within the game.
According to reports, airborne vehicles are used as a bug and end up underneath the map.
This bug allows players to pilot them and get free kills along the way.
Call of Duty announcement
The official website of Call of Duty explained that helicopters exist as the sole areal vehicle in Warzone.
In addition, these aerial vehicles are the fastest way to travel around Verdansk. They even allow a full squad to travel in comfort.
Helicopters are designed pretty agile and this makes them a tricky target to knock out of the sky.
Secondly, other announcements include the coming of Blood Money Trios to Warzone. This replaces the classic battle royale’s Plunder Trios mode.
The Blood Money Trios hand out rewards of extra cash for killing enemies.
Additionally, Infinity Ward prepares to launch a Duos mode in Warzone once tests are finished.
Other news includes Taylor Kurosaki’s confirmation regarding the battle royale title. According to him, the title will continue for years to come.
Even after the new Call of Duty game drops this year, the title will still continue.
In addition, Kurosaki also noted that Warzone is the “throughline that connects all the various sub-franchises of Call of Duty.”
Stay tuned for more updates regarding Call of Duty: Warzone and other announcements.
