Infinity Ward announced a hotfix for bugs plaguing Warzone 2 after the Season 2 update.

Warzone 2 Season 2 is finally here, introducing a new Resurgence map, customizable Perks, and major gameplay changes. Unfortunately, rampant game crashes marred an exciting seasonal update for Modern Warfare 2 and WZ2 players.

Making matters worse, players crashed in the middle of Ranked Play matches, resulting in lost Skill Rating points and 1-hour suspensions to no fault of their own. In a less severe issue, players reported a surprising lack of armor plates in the new Resurgence playlist.

Raven Software rushed out a hotfix hours later, adding more armor plates. The developers also responded in record time to fix the game’s crashing issues and other hiccups affecting Season 2’s launch.
