Joe Cecot, Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at Infinity Ward, has responded to multiple Twitter users regarding their issues with CoD Warzone, as the battle royale approaches one month old. 

Since its March 10 release, Call of Duty’s latest battle royale has been lauded by critics and fans alike. Many have praised its fast pace and efficient game mechanics, comparing it favorably to Black Ops 4’s Blackout.


However, as is standard with the release of any new game, a number of frustrating glitches and inconsistencies have emerged. Developers Infinity Ward and Raven Software will be quick to iron these out in order to keep Warzone afloat in a saturated battle royale market.

Warzone released on March 10.

Joe Cecot demonstrated this attitude on March 21, replying to a number of Twitter users regarding the bugs they’ve encountered while playing Warzone. 


Most notably, he confirmed that a fix will be coming to stop people leaving the game once downed and depriving their attacker of the kill. 

In the game’s current build, downed players can leave a game to prevent the enemy who knocked them from getting the kill. Naturally, this should not happen and players who are downed with no prospect of being revived should reward players with the elimination. 

Alongside this confirmation, Cecot hinted that Infinity Ward will look at a change allowing allies to be informed when one of their teammates downs an enemy.


Currently, it is up to players to verbally communicate to their teammates that they have downed an opponent. 

An in-game feature would mean players are automatically informed when their teammates knock an enemy. While Cecot did not confirm this, his response suggested IW will look into it. 

Cecot also responded to an issue semtex grenades, to ensure they down an enemy player if they are stuck.


There appears to be a few scenarios in Warzone’s current build that enable players to survive a direct impact. Needless to say, this seems unfair on those accurately throwing their grenades. 

Later in the day, Cecot also responded to complaints about some of the settings in Warzone when one player asked whether there were plans for a button remap in the works and, more specifically, for the ping button.


Currently, Warzone and multiplayer settings are one and the same, but it seems Cecot and the Infinity Ward team are aware that this isn’t the optimal way to play and has said that they’re “working on some stuff.”

Cecot did not provide a detailed timescale on when we can expect to see these adjustments made. However, now they are on Infinity Ward’s radar we can expect to see adjustments made in the near future.

You can also keep up to date with fixes coming to Modern Warfare and Warzone on Infinity Ward’s Trello board, and of course we’ll keep you informed on Dexerto.

Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting another huge Call of Duty tournament and this time, Warzone is in focus as the best players will be coming together in an entirely new format.

From Black Ops 4 to Ghosts and even Modern Warfare 2, Hitch has been hosting an assortment of throwback CoD events throughout the offseason. However, his sights are now set on Warzone as the next competition is on the horizon.


Call of Duty’s best pro players will be joining the top Warzone challengers and some of the biggest streamers in the ‘Cracked Creators’ event. 16 “cracked” players will be thrown into the mix alongside 16 content creators with $10,000 on the line.

The format is something completely new so expect every competitor to be tested like never before. From where you can watch to every player lined up, here’s what you need to know about the Cracked Creators Warzone tournament.


How to watch the Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.


Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament format

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
