Dr Disrespect lists what Warzone needs to add next

Dr Disrespect has listed a bunch of features he wants to see added to Call of Duty’s Warzone ⁠— and says “now is the time” to implement them.

Warzone was once the King of Twitch. After its March 10 release, it shot to the top of the streaming charts as everyone wanted to get a taste of the new, exciting Call of Duty battle royale.

While some streamers have moved over to streaming games like Valorant,  or returned to Fortnite for the big events there, the Two-Time thinks Warzone still has the chance to rise back to the top.

The Doc has been playing a lot of Warzone.

Doc’s wishlist of content takes the best part of different games and Warzone competitors to make it the best battle royale on the market.

From a refresh of content including new maps and weapons, to the quirky pick on “in-game concerts” similar to Fortnite, the Two-Time believes these changes will help the game ride its wave of momentum.

Some of his wishlist ⁠— like the concert point ⁠— may be a bit farfetched, but it makes sense. Although Warzone is a much more serious game compared to Fortnite, it has a strong community aspect. Finding a way of bringing everyone together is a must.

On top of that, ranked is a sore point. Warzone is approaching three months of runtime, and outside of the odd community tournament, there’s nothing worth playing for. Adding ranked could bring players back, and the Doc believes Halo 2’s is the one Infinity Ward should emulate.

While Halo 2 is 15 years old, its ranked mode has stood the test of time. Players would grind through fifty levels, flexing their prestige if they were at the top. There was also an MMR system that allows players to see specifically what rank they were in comparison to others.

Coupled with “multi-million dollar Global Tournaments,” Warzone could have the best competitive ecosystem in the world. However, given Infinity Ward’s skepticism on adding ranked, Warzone fans shouldn’t hold their breath.

While even the Doc thinks some of his changes might be “too far,” even adding one of them would alleviate a lot of players’ concerns. Streamers and casuals alike have been pleading with Infinity Ward to make more changes to keep Warzone fresh.

It’s a pretty general wishlist, but the premise behind Doc’s message is simple: keep on improving the game, or else titles like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Valorant will overrun Call of Duty once again.

Maybe May 12’s patch will make all of the Two-Time’s dreams come true.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals Warzone cosmetics for Nuke event

New Black Ops Cold War leaks have pointed towards Warzone rewards for the impending nuke event that looks likely to bring a new map to Call of Duty’s battle royale mode. 

When the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare year was coming to a close, many wondered what would happen to Warzone. Would it make the move over to Black Ops Cold War or remain a separate entity?

Well, in that time, there’s been plenty of speculation about a new map and a move to the Cold War engine – especially as the Nuke, which appeared in Verdansk during the reveal event for the new game, still hasn’t been launched. 

However, it looks like the weapon of mass destruction could soon be set to lift off and kickstart Warzone’s integration with Cold War after some new cosmetics surfaced.

Warzone hasnt made the move to Cold War just yet, but it appears as if its coming soon.

Call of Duty leaker WarzoneNewz posted an image of an emblem where a Nuke can be seen blasting off around the Soviet flag – making it look like a Sickle. 

Additionally, there is a calling card for Alcatraz, or at least a map based on Alcatraz anyway – with Russian propaganda billboards being used on the main building in the centre of the image. 

The long-standing theory, since the Nuke arrived on Verdansk, has been that it will blast off and destroy Verdansk, giving way for some sort of rebirthed version of Alcatraz, given Treyarch used the small, prison map back in Blackout – the first attempt at Call of Duty Battle Royale. However, nothing has been confirmed. 

During the Cold War reveal event, where players were tasked with running around Verdansk and completing certain tasks, unique emblems and calling cards were released. So, it would make sense that they’d want to commemorate another live event with rewards for players who are there.

However, we’ll just have to wait and see what Treyarch decides to do, as there’s been no confirmation, just yet, about whether there will be another map or if it’s just going to be an extension of Verdansk.
