More recently, however, the Warzone devs issued a special briefing for players, highlighting several bug fixes and quality of life improvements that should improve the overall gaming experience in Caldera and Rebirth Island next season.
Noteworthy, the developers said that the content additions were secondary to their main priority: "providing the community with a positive and fun gameplay experience." Fortunately, it seems that the Vanguard Warzone Season 2 update will do just that.
Warzone Pacific Season 2: All major bug fixes and improvements
On 11th February, Call of Duty devs announced a special briefing, "Community Update," highlighting a menu of gameplay bugs, including several top community requests.
While some bugs are tolerable to some degree, others have been frustrating. For example, Warzone Pacific had serious graphics texture issues, which hit players differently.
Fortunately, this issue will be resolved in Warzone Pacific Season 2, along with more than 30 quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes, including but not limited to:
- Improvements to all forms of movement, such as vehicle handling, parachutes deploying at a lower vertical height, increased player mantle height, and collision fixes for both vehicles and players.
- The Gas Mask animation no longer interrupts Operators who aim down sights.
- When inserting Armor Plates, it refills a full armour plate before filling damaged ones.
- Performance and streaming issues across all platforms, including Buy Station freezes, voice chat connectivity, and distorted graphics.
- Specific Operator skins becoming invisible at certain distances.
- Blockages to Modern Warfare Multiplayer, which is tied to Warzone’s launcher.
We are especially pleased to see the invisible skins bug and freezing buy stations issue cut from this list, as they were incredibly annoying reasons to lose a match.
Warzone Pacific Season 2 won't get a FOV slider update for console
Unfortunately, not everything is good news. Console players will be disappointed that one of the most requested fixes, Field of View (FOV) sliders, will not be part of this latest gameplay update.
FOV is a feature that allows players to obtain a greater degree of information from their displays. PC players can increase their FOV up to 120; however, console players are disadvantaged by limiting the FOV to 80.
According to Raven Software's Amos Hodge, the feature will remain unchanged because of concerns that altering FOV limits might introduce adverse changes to last-gen console framerates.
"It’s a hard one [...] We don’t have the confidence we can maintain framerate on last-gen consoles with a FOV slider," Hodge said. While this might be true, Hodge noted that they are conducting performance tests to potentially roll out the FOV slider update in a future gameplay patch.
Beyond this, we also got a bit of detail regarding Activision’s plans. Accordingly, the publisher officially confirmed that the next COD game would be a direct sequel to Modern Warfare (2019).
Indeed, this is excellent news, and we highly recommend you to check out the full announcement to dig out more details about everything coming to both Warzone Pacific and Vanguard in Season 2.
