The Call of Duty: Warzone developers have responded to a new issue that has prevented players in cross-platform lobbies from using game chat – either to communicate with teammates or to trash talk opposing players.

Even since Warzone launched back in March, the developers have the battle royale have kept on top of things with all-new content, regular bug fixes, and new game modes that have kept players coming back for more.

Though, following Modern Warfare’s April 28 update, which added the Most Wanted bounty and Armor Satchel to Warzone, an all-new communication issue had begun rearing its head, making it impossible for players who use the cross-platform function to use game chat with their teammates.

Warzone has been ultra popular with Call of Duty fans.

This has obviously caused plenty of problems for Warzone fans who don’t use outside services like TeamSpeak, Discord, or Skype to communicate with teammates and friends. So, they’ve had to make their complaints known to the developers – and it appears as if they’ve taken the feedback on board. 

As of writing on May 1, players have noted that on the Warzone Trello board – where upcoming patches and updates can be found – a fix for the game chat issue has been noted and is seemingly already in the works.

Obviously, how long it takes to get a fix up, running, and implemented in-game remains to be seen – as does whether they would have to throw out a full-blown update or if it comes as part of a hotfix.

Players have been airing their concerns about other problems that they would like to see fixed in Warzone, as well. These stem from things like having assault rifles in the Gulag and players being invincible if they’re brought back from a buy station in the final circle. These will have to be addressed by the developers at some point in the future, but we don’t have any update on them yet.

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.
