Since its release in early December 2021, Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 1 hasn't been without issues, from hackers to glitches and much more. However, the developers continue to improve the game, recently unleashing the kernel-level driver for Warzone, the Festive Fervor event, balance changes and much more.

In a brand-new Warzone Pacific update released on 17th December, Raven Software took more steps to improve the battle royale experience on Caldera

Bombing runs removed from Caldera

The removal of bombing runs should be considered a welcome change. For those who haven't played Warzone Pacific, bombing runs drop random stun bombs from the sky onto players' locations, with the goal of keeping players moving.

While it sounds great in practice, bombing runs have been an annoyance for many players, while others took advantage of this feature to pinpoint the location of enemies.

Raven Software announced this news in an updated patch notes post with one short but sweet line: "The Bombing Runs over the Caldera have come to a halt. No more reported sightings."

  • Fixed additional placeholder images to appear in various Store Bundle previews and/or purchases.
