Call of Duty Warzone Private Battle Royale Matches Added
Activision has revealed that Call of Duty Warzone is getting a massive new feature that players have been asking for, for some time. Battle royale is a huge social game with usually hundreds of players playing together, and now you can make Warzone private matches.
New Update Adds Call of Duty Warzone Private Matches
This week’s update dropped for Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare with some new features and changes. But the most significant part of this update affects Warzone battle royale and gives players an option that we didn’t expect to see for some time.
Players can now hop into the game and make their own Warzone private matches for battle royale with their friends and community. This is an amazing addition that we didn’t expect so soon, especially since the battle royale genre hasn’t exactly been kind to this sort of feature.
There are very few, if any, battle royale games out there that allow for private lobbies so that players can make their matches with each other online. So, this change from Call of Duty Warzone is a game-changing one that should help the game’s social aspect a lot.
The gist of the new Warzone private matches feature is that it is currently in the beta format for it. In this form, there are potential bugs and issues that you could run into, so be sure to leave feedback for Activision if you have any issue.
With the Warzone private matches system, you can make your lobby match and host your friends or community to play with you. This lets you decide who can be in the match and possibly edit the settings for the game.
In the beta version of the private battle royale matches, there are only three available modes, which is still a lot. You have the standard battle royale with squad variations included. It requires you to have a certain number of players in the match to start.
Every private match mode has to have a minimum number of players to begin the match. For the battle royale mode, you have to have 50 players at the least. For the Plunder game mode, you need to have at least 30 players in the lobby.
And last but not least, you can do mini battle royale matches, which requires 24 players to start. This is a very welcome new feature in Warzone and will allow people with lots of friends online to share their matches and hang out together to compete.
This will also be great for Warzone streamers since they can host a night where they party with their followers. There is a competitive aspect where there can be unofficial tournaments and competitions outside of the Call of Duty League since it is easy to host private battle royale matches.
There is a lot to love about this new feature. We can’t wait to see how the community can use it to host their private matches and hang out with one another in a more personal and guaranteed way.
Playlist Update and General Fixes
But this update wasn’t just all about the Warzone private matches. There is a new playlist update and a lot of bug fixes. When it comes to Modern Warfare, the playlists right now are Ground War, Gunfight, Team Deathmatch Snipers Only, Hardpoint Hills and Kills, Shipment 24/7, and Shoot House 24/7.
It looks like we won’t see any more special game modes for Modern Warfare as often as we did before with the release of Black Ops Cold War coming later this week. The playlists this week are the battle royale solos, duos, trios, quads, and Plunder trios as for Warzone.
This update also has many bug fixes that you can benefit from, starting with the bug fix for players getting stuck in the third-person view when trying to revive a teammate as the round ends in Survival. There is also a fix for a particular error code that a lot of players have been getting.
There is also a fix for the Gaz operator challenge where players couldn’t complete the first objective to win three Gulag missions while playing as Gaz. There is a fix for the officer challenges 90-100, where they would reset after completion.
There is a fix for the strange but somewhat funny bug where the helicopters could spin in the air after progressing through the Survival game mode. There are also fixes to help prevent players from going AFK in the middle of a Gunfight match. Speaking of Gunfight, the weapons in that game mode will now rotate the way they were intended.
Weapon and PC Fixes
On the weapons side of things, there are some specific fixes for a couple of weapons in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. There is a fix for the M4 Tombstone that would remove certain ammo magazines from the weapon model when you add them.
And then there is a fix for the Tracer Pack Sakura Edition Maruyama weapon where there seemed to be a gap between the barrel and the gun’s body.
As for those of you who play on PC, there is always patch sizes and the overall required space for the game. High-resolution textures will download while you are playing the game using an on-demand textures streaming feature.
This will only affect those users who have the texture resolution set too high and only works for operators and weapons. You can change the streaming feature in the settings and control this feature’s daily limit if you are someone with a capped internet and so on.
We were only able to cover some of the bug fixes that happened in this update. If you are interested in finding out what else is here in this smaller update for Modern Warfare and Warzone, be sure to check out the official patch notes.
