Infinity Ward rolled out an update for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2, addressing several bugs and UI concerns.

Season 3’s first week presented a few challenging roadblocks to the WZ2 and MW2 development teams. On April 14, a patch updated the battle pass map view after community members mocked the “goofy” new battle pass layout, which redesigned the sector map.

Next, on April 18, a game-breaking bug forced Infinity Ward to temporarily remove Massive Resurgence. Players spawned in the gas, resulting in matches ending in less than 40 seconds.

The latest update improves server stability, makes further improvements to the battle pass UI, and makes a long laundry list of bug fixes.

Buy Stations have already undergone massive changes in Warzone 2.

On April 19, Infinity Ward released an update for WZ2 and MW2. The patch changed the battle pass once again, making it easier for players to locate the most valuable reward in a sector and reducing game crashes from entering the battle pass map.

The developers also improved the usability of buy stations and weapon previews for controller players. Buy stations automatically start on the gear section, allowing players to purchase what they need faster.

As for DMZ, the update added a one-minute countdown at the start of matches, preventing players from abusing the UAV killstreak immediately. And Infinity Ward fixed an issue where users couldn’t pick up an enemy’s backpack after eliminating them.
