Warzone Pacific Season 1 Reloaded update: Console performance

Regular crashes, graphical bugs, and overall performance issues have impacted Warzone since the Season 1 update. The mid-season patch looks to start addressing “a number” of these issues on console.

“These fixes are the first in a series and will not address all concerns at once,” the devs said on Twitter. 

Warzone Pacific Season 1 Reloaded update: Bug fixes

Outside of the console-specific changes, the Season 1 Reloaded patch introduced over a dozen bug fixes as well.

Many issues have been hindering the battle royale experience of late. Everything from invisible skins and “pay-to-win” exploits have been noted on the official Warzone Trello board.

Invisible skins have been running rampant in Warzone since the Season 1 patch.

However, this update focused on visual bugs in the menus, store bundle issues, and a handful of map exploits instead.
