Former Fortnite pro and current Warzone star, Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad, believes that the Ghost perk in Warzone should be tweaked to dissuade camping in the popular Call of Duty battle royale. 

Aydan is no stranger to BR titles, given all the success he’s achieved in Fortnite and Warzone. He’s also very familiar with CoD titles, given his history competing in ‘GBs’ since Black Ops 2. Coupling those perspectives, he believes that Warzone would be better if its Ghost perk was tuned in line with how the perk functions in Black Ops Cold War.

As it stands, Ghost grants an impervious cloak of map invisibility to its bearer in Modern Warfare and Warzone. A necessary perk built into every second loadout across Verdansk, it guarantees that players cannot be detected by Heartbeat Sensors or UAVs. 

Dissimilarly, Black Ops Cold War’s Ghost is akin to earlier titles’, in which it grants the same mini-map immunities — but only when the player is moving. Therefore, if a camper has Ghost equipped, they will be detectable. As mentioned in the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan thinks this version should be integrated into Warzone.

“I really like how [BOCW] has Ghost: it only works if you’re moving,” he said. “So if you’re camping in a corner, Ghost won’t work. I think that might be a great addition.”

While discussing his feelings toward Black Ops Cold War in comparison to Modern Warfare and Warzone, Aydan touched on his excitement about possible integration between the different titles. While BOCW and MW will be kept separate, Activision have already confirmed that both games will enjoy some overlap in Warzone.

One of the more interesting opportunities this provides is the chance to rework Ghost, which is exactly what the streamer was alluding to.

While aware that he does have biases as a “bot racer and a PUB slayer,” Aydan elaborated that “it’s just kind of annoying when someone’s just sitting there with Ghost and you can’t detect them at all.” As such, he argues that the anti-camping adjustment “would be a great integration to add to Ghost.”

Given how many CoD enthusiasts complain about campers, either in multiplayer or Warzone, one has to imagine that there could be some serious support for this tweak to the game’s most popular perk.

Warzone players want Juggernaut removed to stop ruining games

The Juggernaut has been a controversial drop since its introduction into Call of Duty: Warzone, and the vast majority of players are now calling on the developers to remove it.

Juggernaut suits in Warzone are annoying for obvious reasons: they can withstand almost endless damage and are gifted a deadly minigun. Although maybe a fun gimmick at first, players are now getting tired of it taking over the battle royale.

Players have been venting their frustrations about it for a while now, but there has been no development in the Juggernaut controversy. So, when we asked dedicated Call of Duty fans’ opinions on the Juggernaut’s potential removal, the response was resounding.

What they’re saying is pretty unanimous: remove the Juggenaut from Warzone.

Warzone players want Juggernaut removed

Our original question was straightforward: “Should the Juggernaut be removed from Warzone?”

The response is also pretty straightforward: yes. However, fans had a lot of things to say in their own creative ways, so we’ve collated some of the best responses here.

One fan actively questioned why the dev team ever decided to include the drop in the first place because of how overpowered it is, referring to it as “one of the most stupidly OP thing left in Warzone”.

Another fan also referred to having the Juggernaut as being “game over” for whoever does not have access to the suit.

This was quickly echoes by another player who states that it “completely breaks the game”, which is hardly what developers want to hear.

Finally, using their own experience another fan vented about a situation that seems to be constantly reoccurring throughout the comments: that playing against the Juggernaut in any situation is unplayable.

Warzone’s developers have largely been very receptive to fan criticism, however, when it comes to this there’s been very little development over the past few months. Maybe if fans keep pushing something will change.

Warzone is being integrated into the newest Call of Duty release, Black Ops Cold War, alongside the game’s first season in December. Perhaps then, some sweeping changes will be made – and the hated Jugg will be removed for good.
