Vehicles have commonly been regarded as one of Warzone’s most overpowered features, and after this buff, it looks like they’re going to get even stronger.
Ever since Warzone first launched in March 2020, one of the most common complaints from players is how powerful vehicles are, especially trucks. They can down you in one hit while also allowing opponents to make a quick getaway, becoming hard to hit and leaving you much worse for wear.
As a result, players have started utilizing explosives such as C4 and RPGs much more, but it looks like now vehicles might even be immune to those thanks to the Season 3 update.
Season 3 of Warzone introduced a number of changes, and one of these includes a very particular update to Trophy Systems in the battle royale title, per Raven Software’s Creative Director Amos Hodge.
Previously, Trophy Systems were simply to be thrown down in a room or area to protect you and your team from enemy explosives, but now they can be attached to vehicles, too – making them almost immune to explosive damage.
This will come in handy when you’re trying to get away from a gunfight and keep your team protected, especially with how prevalent explosives are in the game now, but it seems to be a cause for concern for some players.
Trophy Systems in #Warzone can be attached to vehicles now. The time out length on them is way to short in my opinion. But I have a feeling that may change in the future.

There are definitely two ways to look at this new update. While vehicles are very powerful, they are often used simply to get from one zone to the next, and it’s pretty frustrating driving around and having explosives randomly flung at you from different directions with no chance to counter.
On the flip side, it’s also particularly frustrating having players running through you with a vehicle, especially when said vehicle is capable of killing you through walls.
It remains to be seen how much this new change is utilized, or whether it really makes much of an impact at all, but Infinity Ward will be closely assessing the situation to see what they can do to make the Warzone experience even better.
