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.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
