I'll forgive every bad thing (lag, crashes, bugs, etc.) if crossplay can be turned off.

But as long as we have the suffering of playing with console players, thumb stays down. Aim assist = cheating, might as well report every console player. Also, they scream a lot, all the time, for some reason.

Edit. Game also features real cheaters now, wonderful, not only the ones with "legal" aim assist.
Edit2. So many crashes still, wasting XP tokens when game even can't stay up.

the biggest piece of dog excrement i have had the misfortune to experience, dog dookie net code, dog dookie UI, dog dookie you name it. I demand a full refund of the neurons that met their end in the time i've played warzone 2.0

Completely unusable for me. My PC specs are fine and I run MW2 and other comparabale games without issue - however in Warzone 2 it is non-stop crashing for me. Frequently ruining matches with my buddies. They launched a broken game.

Absolutely surpassed my expectations for a battleroyal with the constraints of a semi realistic shooter. Great movement and Aim evolution with most of the same stuff from Warzone 1, all with no bugs from my pov. Highly recommend.

DMZ is fun to me, read some people say quests are repetitive and boring, if you ever played tarkov its the same style of quests, kill loot and extract with items, good find kind of grind if you have buds to play with enjoying it alot so far

This is the only Battle Royale where my squad has been eliminated 1 by 1 by the game crashing.
It's full of bugs, full of crashes and they have the balls to shove DLC in your face when you launch the game.

Crashes more than crypto

Call of Duty used to be casual game back in the day, now its just a really toxic and skill based game, as a casual gamer that likes to sit down and play for an hour or 2 after work I would not recommend this game

No idea why it keeps crashing as server from host is disconnected...Cost me 2 important games for the DMZ loots which includes taking down the DMZ boss!!!! I am not changing my review until this shit is fixed!

By dumping all that money on them throughout the life of Warzone, you all basically told Activision it's okay to release a shoddy beta, slowly upgrade it until it's in a solidly playable form, then move everyone over to the next beta.

Y'all made your bed. Better either lie in it and enjoy it for what it is or just go elsewhere. This is the "free-to-play" ecosystem you made for yourselves. Not sure what you expected.

When you reward bad behavior (with money), you get (gasp) more bad behavior.

When are you kids gonna learn?

They managed to capture the magic that the original launch of Warzone was like. Besides the UI and performance issues, the game is great! Can't wait for it to be ruined in 2-3 years. Might as well enjoy it while I still can

This game is so buggy. Not like "haha look at the npc with his head stuck in a rock" buggy. I'm talking unplayable buggy. I have started maybe 25 DMZ runs, and have crashed out of over half of them. Yeah, it's a beta game mode, but it's not playable for a large number of people. There are about 8 or 9 people in my discord who play, and all of them have experienced the random crashes. It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't a bunch of time wasted and all of your resources just gone because you didn't extract. Your weapons that you spent time extracting, the stuff you gathered to sell for xp, all of your xp gains just gone. Not to mention your faction mission progress is probably lost, and that already takes AGES to complete.

They don't have respect for your time, so don't bother playing until they fix it.

Infinity ward made this really cool system where if you're doing well or God forbid having fun, the game just crashes or a bug kills you. Many times I have been about to win quads and I get "steam disconnected" or just crash to desktop. That's not even to mention the broken cover hitboxes, the airstrikes going through solid roofs, or the fact that performance is God awful. They should be ashamed of releasing a game fully and still forcing the community to playtest it. Sticking to multiplayer for now. Every single person who had a hand in developing this dumpster fire should be ashamed. Every day a new things breaks.

Decent game definitely needs more content people say its optimised shit maybe they have a shit PC, mine runs at 110-144fps which is not the best tbh since i have a 3070 and ryzen5 5600x (all max settings apart from shaders) no cheaters at all which is great, the only thing i hate is the fact u have to play multiplayer to lvl up ur weapons fast which is a pain because i prefer warzone, still with a decent pc the game can just crash for no reason which is not fun, but proximity chat is really fun, overall i would recommend this game as its free and still a good game it just needs some changes and some extra content

Campers Paradise 2.0

- Plug in Controller = Free AIMBOT!

- Land anywhere, go make yourself coffee, come back 30 minutes later and you are still inside zone!

- Open million doors for free fun and run 35000 different stairs to make your head dizzy!

- Camp markets for free kills! (Really, make the markets move or something, so noobs don't camp them.)

Wanted to give this game a chance, but it's literally that bad that i have lost all my braincells.
0/10 would never try again.

Warzone itself still can't hold a candle to Apex Legends as a BR (feels janky and the Gulag addition is very jarring and disjointed), but DMZ is stupidly fun. It's a less sweaty, more streamlined Tarkov/Cycle, with much better PvP. I realize there are many folks that have crashing issues; my teammates have crashed and unfortunately there's no reconnect feature as of yet. Luckily, my game has been crash free over a week of play time. If your game crashes often, wait out a few patches, and try coming back. DMZ is just plain old fashioned fun and worth the look.

Absolutely horrid. Instant 1 shot deaths, no footsteps, trash servers, constant dev errors. Literally went in reverse with this pile of rubbish. I'm embarrassed at the fact that i'm downloading BF2042 (more trash) while its free because this game causes me to blow blood vessels.

I do not have this installed, thanks for letting me choose to not have Borezone on my Rig. You guys better give MW2 Multiplayer some love this time instead of dumping it after a season like in MW 2019.

This game is embarrassing. I would avoid putting this on my CV at all costs. I would have a company think I did heroin for 3 years than have them think I touched this pile of trash. Do not pay for it, play it, or look at it. Nothing works as intended and everything breaks by it just existing.

I pay for battlepass and some e-coin to see a modern warfare like AC130 , VTOL Jet, APC, some others modern stuff. But i never knew the game offered more advanced technology than we have now. We now officialy have flying boat in warzone! Money well spent

So many people crying about this. Yes there have been crashes at HORRIBLE times, but still fun. DMZ is so close to what I have been looking for since I started PC gaming. All these reviews should be a recommend with cons listed. Give it a try!

The game is not optimized, it has crashed and there is a load of bugs. It JUST came out and those will be fixed AND behind that is a truly fun experience. The map or "maps" i should say are awesome, the pacing is fun, the gun play is awesome, high octane and feels tactical in lots of scenarios. I love this Warzone! Minus the bomb drone

IW made changes just for the sake of changing things and it ruined the game. Imagine having over a decade of experience and flopping this hard, especially when you had a great game in Warzone and still somehow managed to fuck that up. I'm convinced the team at Activision and IW have no idea what they're doing. We're left with an unpolished game that is plagued with shitty UI, clunky mechanics, and lack of basic functions. They took the greatest things from Warzone 1 and removed them and picked random shit from a hat to add. I'm not even going to mention the poor optimization, constant crashes, and unreliable servers.

Honestly, just scrap Warzone 2.0 at this point and bring back Warzone with Verdansk and Rebirth and I assure you that the community would be much happier.

Dear developers,

1) Change the looting which is absolute sh**.
2) Change the coding so that the game stops to stutter at the most important moments, which is an absolute sh**.
3,4,5,6,7 and until 9999999999) TUNE DOWN THE AUTO AIM OF PAD PLAYERS AS THIS IS ABSOLUTE SH**!!!!

Or at least let us KBM play with KBM ONLY! What you did with AA and the way it makes pad players stick glue to us while we strugle with recoil, moving and aiming is ABSOLUTE SH**!!!

This game will die soon if things stay that way. And honestly -> GOOD. It is time the devs learned a harsh lesson.

Activision forces developers to push Warzone even though people just want Multiplayer support. Activision and IW are more worried about Warzone than anything else with the game to see how much money they can get out of it's people before dropping 1 new map and 1 new gun that virtually doesn't work while there are hundreds of other bugs present. On top of it, Warzone, IW, Activision still support the cheating "streamers" who use wallhacks, VPNs to get into low skill foreign lobbies and sound hacks to make them look like they are actually good at the game when the software is literally playing it for them.

the game is actually good its just all the bugs and thousands of crashes that i had while playing it. its garbage at the moment save your time and space on your computer until its fixed a few months down the road.... 1/10 dont, just dont. im really pissed off that i spent 70 F****** dollars on this game

IMO, great game but honestly the insane amount of crashes in this game make it hard to have any fun. I'm two for two in having a CRAZY good game then having it crash halfway through. it drive me banana. also poor optimization issues

DMZ and Warzone (to a degree) are fun but I can not recommend this game at its current state. "Update Required" every hour and constant crashes. Its really disappointing that every game that comes out now a days is at an unplayable state for the a whole month.

Utter garbage. The only reason people play this is because of the name "call of duty" itself. The devs realized a long time ago they can stamp that name on a literal piece of dog shit and we'd buy it right up. This is the same washed garbage that comes out every year, and some how it continues to offer less and less each release. Warzone (atleast in solo's) is the worst experience in a BR ive ever experienced. They have lowered the skill ceiling to the ground floor, and now its just a campy, crouch walking, "Hope you have a better TTK gun", circle jerk of a shit fest. Still going to play it though, because why not.

It is pretty good, now if you have everything set on Ultra and not system recommended that could make it hard to play this game without crashes. If you just turn it down to normal or what they recommend for your system visually then you will make it though every game you get into, just don't drive around a lot..... then you might CRASH ha get it like a car crashing...... okey also I mean just don't drive around a lot because that's when i get the few crashes I've had.

PROS:

+ great gunplay
+ nice graphics
+ new mechanics like swimming

PROS or CONS (depending what you expected, I consider these mostly cons):

Warzone 2 is COMPLETELY different than Warzone 1. It's way slower with a more standard BR experience (slow looting, less loot on the map, backpack mechanics, WAY WAY slower movement, loadouts WAY harder to get, AI). That's not what i expected after playing Warzone 1 for over 2800 hours.
Warzone 2 is not a bad game, HOWEVER, it's a completely different experience and it shouldn't be called "Warzone" in the 1st place. I'm not really a fan of slow-paced standard BRs so I won't be playing it but I'm sure there are people who'll like it. I just wouldn't call it "Warzone".
2v2 gulag is actually okay. i thought I'd hate it but it's not bad. The regular 1v1 was probably better but i honestly don't mind this change.

CONS:
- EXTREMELY toned down movement (even compared to mw2 beta)
- most attachments have more downsides than upsides
- looting money takes ages hence getting a loadout weapon or buying back dead mates is way harder than in WZ1,
- UI is dogsh*t
- menu is laggy and bugged
- Gunsmith 2.0 is a cool idea but it's also frustrating when you max leveled half of the guns yet there are still attachments locked because you need to level up that 1 shotgun to get laser for an smg etc.
Also "weapon platforms" are a useless concept. There's nothing unique about them. You need to max level every gun in the game anyway to unlock all attachments to a particular gun.
- new battlepass is bassically the same but now you need to waste time to unlock everything manually.

I personally don't enjoy the game. It's not a bad game but it's not the xperience I expected as a huge fan of WZ1 (Especially Verdansk). If you expected a more standard BR experience with a much much bigger focus on looting, positioning etc. then the game is porbably for you.

Fix the lag on warzone you blue faced monkeys. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Megamind ass corporation. Stg every single time i loaded into a warzone game i would be chillen then oop all of a sudden i get sucked up into ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ space and time. Get shot so far up into the sky with the lag im basically having a brewskie with the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ plane that i ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ jumped out of 10 mins ago. Other then that 10/10

the DMZ mode is really easy. it amazes me that call of duty players will play the same game franchise for 20 years and still be bad at it. they cant even beat bots LOL. DMZ is moderately fun but the main thing is warzone 2. it's funny as fuck because of proximity chat, the only problem with wz2 is that it crashes. ignore all these boomers, if you have played ANY other fps game EVER you will not struggle on this game.

Pros:
Big map that gives Verdansk vibes
Tactical gameplay rather than the arcade-style of its predecessor
Gun variety and balance due to faster ttk
Great graphics and physics
Swimming and water mechanics

Cons:
Clunky movement mechanics(reloading, mantling etc)
Dev errors and disconnections
Lots of lag

As a lover of Warzone 1 and its faster arcade style movement, I was skeptical of this game at first. It's grown on me though and different take on COD BRs. Warzone 2 has a ton of potential. Give the developers time to fix the lag, errors, and disconnections and we got winner.

would it be so hard to add a reconnection feature since the game is so prone to crashing in dmz. losing ur whole loadout to a dc or crash is some pure bs. is it so hard pubg had it year ago ur guy can stand there and still die till you get back in, pure ballacks

Jitters and stutters. Horribly optimized. Terrible servers. Crap looting system. Slow and boring pace of play. Every single bit of movement toned down to help the casuals. UAV's that can't be bought more than once from a buy. AI everywhere and a juggernaught. Wtf am i playing Infinity Ward!?!?! Take every single thing that was good about Warzone 1 and remove it. Such a waste of space on my SSD.

Absolutely great load screen and home screen. It's smooth online to the point where you can choose every option. Succeeds at reading clicks and causes the game to be absolutely playable.

Activision managed to improve this one and make it not as bad as they did with WARZONE 1. Congratulations!!! You have proven yourselves capable at even the most basic of tasks. ACTIVISION continues to be a AAA development company. They have AAA money, and actual talent to speak of.

I started shooting someone in the back and it crashed so hard that it reset my computer. With thousands of people working on this game, and the billions this franchise is worth, this should not be an issue and it shouldn't STILL be an issue.

COD is a bunch of F A Gs

HavronEX
HavronEX

While still somewhat of a buggy mess, the core game is still quite fun. The new DMZ mode is like a Tarkov-lite that is a lot of fun. The new Warzone map is quite well made as well. Maybe wait a few months as they iron out a few things and this should be in a really good place.

Awful game play, no outplay potential, focused on game play for the casuals, the looting system is garbage, countless bugs and glitches. Game just simply isn't fun and a huge downgrade compared to WZ1

When warzone first released, it had many problems on launch. Then it got better. I feel it'll be the same way with Warzone 2. I know that many people wants to show negative reactions and reviews on purpose, just because the game has bugs and crashes etc doesn't mean the game or gameplay overall is bad. They added some new mechanics, the gunplay is really fun and good quality. Crashes and bugs are meant to be fixed, so no need to give negative reviews. Overall the game is fun, so many potential for the future.

Warzone Review:
I don't really play Battle Royale games, but... just no..
Servers are laggy, the backpack that contains loot of downed enemies has an interaction box of 200km and you can't even take a shit without opening it (or open the backpack next to it if you killed 2 people next to each other)
The Gulag should have 2v2 AND 1v1. As of right now I cleaned my room, downloaded some porn and then when I finally had 4 dead people (It was 60 people left at that point, half left because the servers lagged to much) my mate ran into the enemies just to die and not take anyone with him like the disappointment he is.

2v2 is fun don't get me wrong but PLEASE just add 1v1 if there are not enough people
I won't go into the new Loadout system and buy station because I am stupid and don't understand it. I just know I couldn't buy a self revive but could buy my Primary weapons of my loadouts (and I can't make a Perk Package, just choose a preset. Don't know if bug or feature)

If you want to play Warzone, avoid it until the servers and loot are fixed, after that you can probably play it

DMZ Review
DMZ is fun, even if its not perfect.
I like the mix of PvP and PvE, but the AI is WAAAY to OP. They know where you are if you triggered them, can shoot through walls sometimes and make A FUCKTON OF DAMAGE for some reason.

I mean like the only way to not get blasted to the outer solar system from the damage is to have 3 armour and then pray, to whatever god you believe in, that no more than one guy comes around a corner. If more than one comes around a corner you better sold your soul or one of them has a shotgun that one hits you if you have anything less than 3 armour.
If you wonder how much god hates you just play this and see if more than one shotgun dude pushes you.

Other than that it's fun with different contracts (but I can imagine it gets boring after you completed all Tiers of them) and have that loot and escape feeling.

The most fun I had was when I dropped with just a Throwing Knife and worked my way up from there.
Nice f2p alternative to EFT in my opinion.

I must say Ive been enjoying most of the time with the game. Graphics are good. Optimization is decent. Mostly Ive been playing normal Warzone matches after they released it. Tried couple of games of DMZ and it was fun with some friends.

Then the bad things. Some extreme lag when game is basically unplayable. Couple of freezes/crashes. For me the game is working fine most of the time, but they need to fix these problems ASAP.

I will give this game 7/10 at this state. Might edit the score depends what they do with the product. Patches etc.

PS: Dont listen the haters who are not even telling whats good or bad in the game.

And if you think why I have 0 hours of playtime, it might be because I bought MW2 basegame and play Warzone trough it so I did not download Warzone 2.0 from steam market.

All the haters are probably those butt hurt about Slide Canceling and reload canceling gone. Welcome to the old way of playing call of duty where it was better then the garbage that was Mw2019. The only complaints I have is the crashes, Footsteps and UI. Other then that the crybabies that dont like that slide canceling is gone. Mw2019 still exists. Go play that instead.

1. Activision can suck my hairy nuts

2.this game is horribly over complicated for no reason. the a big part of the appeal of cod and cod warzone is simple fun you get into a match get some kills and hear some racial slurs that's all you need. Seemingly after people complained about vanguard changing nothing Activision decided to change everything but decided it should be horribly over complicated.

if you dont feel like reading through the rest of my rant than TLDR: The gulag, gas circle, looting, weird PvE strongholds and backpack are way too over complicated. The map is massive and kind of boring and the TTK is way too low for a battle royale.

its honestly strange to see how they managed to fuck up so many things with this game that they didn't need to change like

The Gulag: the gulag is now a horrible 2v2 PvEvP mess. instead of a simple 1v1 to decide who gets to live, you have a teammate even in solos there's equipment everywhere meaning grenade spam and if you wait too long then highly armored AI spawns called the jailer that your supposed to team up with the enemy to kill. WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT THAT 4 RANDOM PEOPLE WOULD TEAM UP IN A FUCKING COD GAME THE JAILER BASICALLY JUST EXISTS TO KILL EVERYONE. WHY DO WE NOW HAVE TEAMMATES IN SOLOS AGAIN NO BODY IS GOING TO COOPERATE WITH A RANDOM PERSON IN A COD LOBBY. IT FEELS LIKE NOBODY ACTUALLY PLAY TESTED THIS OUT SIDE OF THEIR OFFICES.

The Circle: it splits now. that's it idk why, its just over complicating things for no reason, it could be a decent idea but its just unneeded complexity.

Looting: loot is now found everywhere not just in boxes like before, you now have to scour infinite shelves for ammo you can use as it tosses hundred of unneeded lethal equipment at you. there's also places like medicine cabinets and duffel bags that you need to loot through a separate menu which just breaks the pace. like the gas circle this system makes no sense to make as the old system of land and loot fast just worked way better.

More interesting reviews
