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.

Drift0r explains why Warzone “isn’t worth” playing anymore

Popular Call of Duty YouTuber Drift0r has released a new video explaining why he thinks Warzone isn’t worth playing anymore due to the number of cheaters in the game, confirming that he is on the brink of “jumping ship” with the battle royale title.

If you’ve been wondering if/when larger content creators and streamers would abandon Warzone due to the lack of an anti-cheat software then wonder no more.

Today, Drift0r – one of the more prominent content creators in the CoD scene – has made a video slamming Warzone for its inability to deal with all the rampant cheating and it seems like the issue has brought him to a breaking point with the game.

“It’s difficult enough with skill-based matchmaking as it is, having to play the sweatiest top 1% players, that’s a challenge in-and-0f-itself that I don’t particularly like for battle royale, but adding in blatant aim-botters on top of that makes the game painfully unfun,” Drift0r said.

According to Drift0r, the cheating in Warzone has become such a problem that he’s considering leaving the game behind.

In the 10-minute long video, the YouTuber says the cheating problem is making him not want to play the game anymore, claiming that he runs into at least “two to three cheaters a night.”

Because of this, and the fact that interest in the game is waning, he contends that he doesn’t feel like the game is worth playing because of the cheating problem.

“I really like Warzone, you can look at my videos, it’s my number 1 most favorite CoD thing to play, but I’m planning to jump ship,” he said. “I got up this morning and I made the decision: I’m going to go ahead and keep making videos but I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t think it’s worth playing anymore.”

Cheating is a major problem for the CoD community right now. The PC version of Warzone is riddled with cheaters and hackers, whether they use external software or manipulate the skill-based matchmaking system to get lower-tier lobbies, to the point where major tournaments have been ruined and lost integrity.

All indications are that Drift0r is not alone in sharing this sentiment; the content creators he’s talked to feel a similar way, claiming they are all ready to “jump ship” as well once a viable game comes along that protects them from cheaters.

Because of this, it seems like the future of Warzone is going to be a turbulent one if Activision doesn’t do anything about the state of the game soon, especially when it comes to the cheating problem.
