Summit1g explains why he hates playing Warzone solo

When Infinity Ward added a solo mode to Warzone only a week after it was released, there was rejoice from many players, who were desperate to drop in rogue rather than having to buddy up with two others. But, top streamer Summit1g thinks that after all the hype, solo mode just isn’t as fun to play.

Summit, a former semi-pro Counter-Strike player and one of the biggest streamers in the world, attracts tens of thousands of fans to his daily broadcasts on Twitch, and Warzone has been his game of choice since its launch.

However, unlike many other streamers, he hasn’t been swept head over heels by Call of Duty’s second battle royale offering, instead being more cautious in his hype levels, questioning if it would be able to hold his attention for long.

His opinion later took a 180 though, as the game slowly grew on him.

He still wanted some updates though, mainly to iron out some of the annoying gameplay complaints that are shared by many. But it looks like adding a solo mode was not the change Summit needed.

When trying to pick what to play next on his March 18 stream, a viewer suggested he try out solo Warzone, but summit1g simply wasn’t in the mood, explaining why for him, it just “kinda sucks.”

“I don’t really like solo Warzone, well I haven’t given it a crazy chance, but, it kinda sucks to be honest,” he said. “Just dying, it kind of feels like another BR, where you just die, it’s over, people are very campy, very sweaty. You know, solos in every BR are pretty much the most unenjoyable experience on earth.”

He concluded by explaining that if he was calling the shots at Infinity Ward, he would have chosen to add duos instead of solos, but hopes that the developers will add that option soon.

Thankfully for Summit, he was able to find some fellow streamers to squad up with so he could avoid the plight of having to play solo in Warzone.

Presumably, IW do have plans to add more options in the future, and solo may not even be a permanent addition. In Apex Legends, for example, they have rotated solo and duos modes, giving players options at different times. There have also been calls to add a four-person squad mode, and the developers even teased the possibility of five-player teams too.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
