Last week, June 30, Activision released update 1.23 that brought changes and news for both warzone and modern warfare. One of the most notorious stories is the increase in players per game, which went from 150 to 200.
This change was making it one of the largest at the moment (in terms of the number of players) among battle royale. What does this imply? That there are now 50 teams on the battlefield, with which the amount of action and combat increases exponentially. This mode will only be available for a limited time, so you better take advantage of it while it lasts.
In addition to that, the “Juggernaut Royale” event was added. It consists of searching for a specific package on the map. By doing so, the player becomes a Juggernaut and will have the minigun feature to enjoy it as they like. If the player dies, a plane will re-launch a packet to restart the event.
New weapons and equipment were also added, such as the “spotter scope.” It is an equipment for the tactical equipment slot. It has an appearance similar to a binocular, and its function is to be able to mark enemies at a distance, both with its regular vision mode and with the thermal vision mode.
We can say that it has a utility similar to the tactical drone, but we take it to the ground. So, the player is not as exposed to use it as it usually happens with the drone.
We will also find a new 50 caliber sniper rifle, the “Rytec AMR,” and the new operator “Roze.”
Furthermore, for those who want something extra, they can buy in the store, the starter pack, which has 500 coins, a shotgun weapon plan, a skin for the operator “Krueger,” a new business card and emblem Epic and Double XP tokens for the Battle Pass.
Finally, Modern Warfare receives a new map, “Cheshire Park” (located in the city of London), in addition to the original game mode “Team Defender.” This game mode consists of a confrontation between 2 teams to conquer and keep the flag. But, there is only one flag for a squad member to capture and hold on to. A squad earns one point for every second that one of its members clings to this flag, which means that defending the wearer is a must for victory.
This last update weighs between 21 to 36 GB (depending on whether it is for console or pc).
Call of Duty: Warzone will also introduce significant changes to the Verdansk map in its season 5 update scheduled for early August, according to VDG. It is because Activision has delayed new launches in support of social protests.
The changes include a renovation of the giant soccer stadium to include an open interior, and a train full of loot will be added that will continually surround the game map, people involved in its development said.
These extras are part of an effort to align the Warzone game map with the next Call of Duty title to be set during the Cold War.
