Some Call of Duty: Warzone fans have spoken out against the latest changes to the Gulag, which introduced a new weapon pool of Assault rifles and SMGs to use for a second chance at survival.

Warzone has become incredibly popular since it was launched as a standalone free-to-play title, with this popularity resulting in plenty of memes, many based around the Gulag feature.

The Gulag faces players off in a 1v1 gunfight, after their first death, for a chance to earn their way back into the match, although some Warzone fans are unhappy with the changes that were made to the feature on May 18.

Modern Warfare and Warzone received a significant update on May 18, with one of the key changes introducing a totally new weapon pool for players to use in the Gulag.

The latest change saw the removal of pistols and shotguns from the prison fight, which have now been replaced with ten new weapons, a mix of Assault Rifles and SMGs. However, Warzone players have now called for this change to be reverted.

One Call of Duty fan, u/rockstonicjuicemagic, even claimed that the new weapons had “ruined” the Gulag, adding that it requires less effort to win now compared to before and that it was one of the “worst changes” that had been made to Warzone.

“The Gulag now has been reduced to left or right lane sniping and wild hipfire shots,” they explained, “the wins mean nothing now and the [losses] are even worse.”

They were not the only one unhappy with the Gulag changes, as another player echoed a similar sentiment, and claimed that the Gulag was too small for medium to long-range weapons such as ARs and SMGs.

“It makes the Gulag players play way too slow and the winner 95% of the time is whoever sees the other person first,” they shared, calling for changes to be made.

They also added some suggestions on how to improve the Gulag, expressing that pistols should be the only weapons available and that equipment such as stun grenades needs to be removed to make it more enjoyable for players.

It is unclear what Infinity Ward has planned for the future of the Gulag and its weapon pool, so players will just have to adapt to the new guns if they want to improve their chances of winning.

And, there are some players in the opposite camp, who have welcomed this change. With such a popular and mainstream game, it’s nearly impossible for the developers to please everyone.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
