Call of Duty players have called for one of Fortnite’s features to assist downed teammates to be added to Warzone ahead of the upcoming season.

Warzone is currently one of the most popular battle royale titles and since its launch on March 10 it has been contending with some of the longer-standing games in the genre such as Apex Legends and Fortnite.

However, despite its success, some Warzone players have suggested that it might be even better with a new feature taken straight from Fortnite.

As seen in most battle royale titles, players in Warzone are given a brief period to be revived after their health bar drops below zero in-game, outside of the solo playlists, where they can slowly shuffle their way to cover.

However, as there is little they can do in this vulnerable state and are typically picked off with ease, particularly when out in the open, some fans suggested different ideas that could work in Warzone to counter this.

One player, u/LeCloutGoat, shared that it should be possible to put away your weapons and carry teammates on your shoulders when they are downed, similar to the feature which was added in Fortnite Chapter 2.

While the suggestion received mixed responses from Warzone fans, another Reddit user, u/Bricksandivy, highlighted an alternative that would give your teammates a better chance at survival.

They shared that instead of carrying your teammates to safety or hoping that they could crawl behind cover, you could simply drag them at an increased speed to safety, possibly preventing opponents from confirming the kill and allowing for more outplay potential in long-range gunfights.

It is not uncommon for battle royale games to introduce new features, that are similar to those of their rivals, and has been seen in the past such as when Epic Games were called out after adding respawn vans or for using similar skins to Apex Legends.

Infinity Ward has also added features that appear to be inspired by their competitors, with the new loot bunkers resembling some of the weapon vaults found in Apex Legends and Fortnite as well.

Totino’s was the latest to host a massive esports event with $20,000 on the line in one of the first proper  Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War tournaments, one that featured top pro players and some of the most popular streamers.

Over the years, we’ve seen the frozen pizza brand host tournaments in multiple games as well as form sponsorships with the likes of 100 Thieves, who recently entered the Call of Duty League with the LA Thieves.

Now, with Black Ops Cold War out and players starting to really get to grips with the game, they teamed up with a number of top names in Call of Duty, including the Minnesota RØKKR CDL team, to put on a show for fans. Here’s everything you need to catch up on the event.

Totino’s Black Ops Brawl recap

With a single-elimination bracket, teams only had one life to prove themselves with. As a result, four teams were immediately knocked out from the first round with no chance at redemption. Nameless, Swagg, Hitch, and Symfuhny all crashed out of the competition early on with their teams taken down right away.

While Tommey’s team advanced through to the grand final, they met a dominant force in the last series of the day. TeeP and his stacked squad refused to drop a map throughout the day. They came away with 3-0 wins over Symfuhny and Crowder to land in the finals.

The opening Hardpoint on Moscow came down to the wire with TeeP’s team narrowly edging it out. However, the next SnD on Miami was the polar opposite. Tommey’s team struck back with an insane 6-0 performance to tie things up. From here on out, their team kept the momentum rolling and closed out the grand final victory.
