Activision recently released a major update to Call of Duty: Warzone 2, revamping the game’s looting mechanics, yet this has caused several technical glitches. Since the introduction of the more refined looting system, a great many Call of Duty: Warzone 2 players have criticized the more deliberate pace it allows. Taking this feedback into consideration, Activision has tried to quicken the looting process by making it more similar to the one found in the original Call of Duty: Warzone.
Rather than being able to scavenge through duffel bags and first aid kits to pick out individual items using a UI pop-up, all the items inside them are now dropped out when a player selects the container and presses the loot button. Those who prefer the more meticulous system of looting from Warzone 2 have jokingly termed this new more straightforward looting style as “vomit loot.”
Players who originally enjoyed the looting system of Call of Duty: Warzone has started to voice their discontent with the recent update. This is due to multiple glitches that have been happening in Warzone 2 in the past few days, with people showing videos of loot disappearing right before their eyes. This is not normal behavior and is preventing some players from having a smooth battle royale experience.
In addition, there have been a few minor occurrences of loot displaying incorrectly; light machine guns being displayed as pistols and vice versa. Although they can still be obtained and used, the weapons that vanish from existence are a different story. This issue has hurt the gaming experience of Warzone 2, as a player’s desired gun may have inexplicably vanished in a critical moment when they needed it the most.
Seemingly, the longing to go back to the past is costing us and damaging the gamer experience. This problem is making a grave impact on the game, so, likely, Activision is already finding a solution. There is a chance that a patch will be released in the following days, hopefully, sooner than later.
The recent update to Warzone 2 has seen not only its loot system being heavily modified, but also other aspects of the game being altered to more closely resemble its predecessor. An example of this is the map locations of loadout drops being shifted, and the Gulag becoming a single duel to the death, instead of the previous 2v2 fight.
The highly anticipated sequel to Call of Duty: Warzone has been released and is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
