We know we’re starting to sound a little like a broken record, but Call of Duty players have discovered a game-breaking bug in Warzone 2 following another major update – so, Raven Software has had to disable a key feature for this battle royale while it fixes it. This time around, it looks like FPS players jumping into this battle royale after the Season 3 update were met with a ‘God Mode’ exploit where certain players seemingly had an indefinite access to spawn protection priviliges in-game. So, Raven Software has opted to completely disable spawn protection features while it addresses the issue – and, quite a few players are calling for this feature to be removed permanently.
If you’re wondering what has sparked the disabling of spawn protection features, all you need to do is check out this short gameplay clip from Call of Duty content creator ‘Speros_OG‘ – although, it’s frustrating to watch. In the short gameplay clip, we see Speros up against a player that’s clearly invulnerable – despite registering hitmarkers – before dying.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a ‘God Mode’ exploit in a Call of Duty game, but this seems more tangible than the last – and, it looks like Raven Software were quick to confirm to Speros (and the rest of us) that it believes spawn protection features are at fault.
So, as you can see in this social media post, Raven Software confirmed that “spawn protection has been temporarily disabled in battle royale” while it investigates “an issue” – which is the ‘God Mode’ exploit.
As you might imagine, this game’s fans were enthusiastic about Raven Software’s actions against the exploit. However, when you look at what they’re saying in regards to spawn protection being disabled, you could say that they’re being a little too enthusiastic. Why? Well, because they want this feature gone for good – removed permanently from the game. And, we’re not just talking about random trolls online – quite a lot of content creators are echoing this, too.
As you’ll be able to see for yourself, in the responses to the aforementioned social media post, there are calls to have this “permanently disabled in normal battle royale” and to “keep it removed permanently”. One player has simply suggested that players should “just pull [their ‘chute] if [they] get shot at” in-game. While this is certainly not a bad tactic to adopt, we’re still not sure it’s entirely fair that Warzone 2 allows players to be shot from the sky while dropping.
If you’re wondering why, it’s anyone’s guess. We can imagine it’s something to do with being able to get quick kills on players dropping in from the sky. However, you have to wonder how many times the very same feature has saved these same players’ lives in-game. Al Mazrah is dog-eat-dog and you can find yourself on a quick trip to the Gulag if you’re not careful.
When you look at some of the other major battle royale games out there, like Fortnite and Apex Legends, this isn’t something you need to worry about. So, as one of the best battle royale games out there, should you have to contend with it in Warzone 2?
Well, right now, you will. Although, we don’t think this reversal and removal of spawn protection will be made permanent anytime soon.
