Call of Duty: Warzone finally brings a significant change to the gas mask that fans have been asking to see for some time.
Call of Duty: Warzone was in season 1 of his Call of Duty: Vanguard integration for months, but it will move on to Season 2 soon. Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 2 will bring sweeping changes to the battle royale, including the introduction of new points of interest and the addition of bomber planes. But while these changes may be the most exciting ones coming for BR, there’s also another big change afoot.
Because Call of Duty: Warzone launched, fans were frustrated with the game’s gas mask animations. Like other battle royale games, Call of Duty: Warzone has danger surrounding players on the map, with the safe space becoming smaller as the game progresses. The danger in Call of Duty: Warzone is a poisonous gas cloud that can kill players pretty quickly if they’re not careful. A way to protect against toxic gases in Call of Duty: Warzone is to wear a gas mask, but this carries its own risks.
When players step in and out of the gas in Call of Duty: Warzone, there is a gas mask animation where their character puts their gas mask on or takes it off. This can put players at a huge disadvantage if they find themselves in the middle of a firefight when this happens, as it essentially ruins their sight and interrupts their shot. This can happen frequently towards the end of any Call of Duty: Warzone match, as the safe zone will be smaller and players are more likely to get in and out of the gas.
Call of Duty: Warzone fans have been asking Activision for a while to change the game’s gas mask animation, and now it looks like a meaningful change is finally on the way. When Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 2 will launch on February 14, the gas mask animation will be changed so that it no longer happens if players are aiming. This way players are much less likely to have their gameplay interrupted by animation.
It’s not a perfect solution and some players may still get annoyed with the gas mask animation from time to time, but it’s a step in the right direction. The only thing you need to worry about now is whether the fix will work or not. Call of Duty: Warzone suffers from various technical issues, exacerbated by behind-the-scenes development issues, and changes sometimes bring new problems with them. There were also several instances where the developers attempted to fix something in Call of Duty: Warzoneonly for it to remain an issue after the update has been rolled out.
Whatever the case, Call of Duty: Warzone fans will find out if the gas mask animation change works as intended when Season 2 begins on February 14.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
