A new Ultra Operator skin introduced to Call of Duty: Warzone has angered fans due to the way that it looks when it is used in-game.
Editor’s Note: A lawsuit has been filed against Activision Blizzard by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which alleges the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination, and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has denied the allegations. The full details of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit (content warning: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are being updated as new information becomes available.
Some fans are angry with Activision over how a new skin looks in Call of Duty: Warzone compared to how it has been advertised by the publisher in promotional material and when previewed within the game, with the outfit lacking detail and color. This is not the first time that fans have complained about the battle royale Call of Duty spin-off, with many upset with the numerous glitches and bugs that plague the online multiplayer experience.
Another major issue for players in Call of Duty: Warzone is the abundance of cheaters who use a variety of hacks to gain an unfair advantage over others. This can include the use of aimbots, allowing hackers to wipe out entire squads in just a few seconds. The problem is so bad that a recent Twitch tournament had to reset the leaderboard after several competitors were found to be using cheats – a clear violation of Twitch’s terms of service.
Fans have been left upset following the introduction of the Ultra Operator skin to Call of Duty: Warzone after it emerged that it looks very different when used in-game. Reddit user kaif_chan123 (via Dexerto) provided a demonstration of the skin, showing how it lacks any of the color or details that the skin seemingly has in promotional images and when previewed from the menu. The cosmetic item, which can be bought with CoD points, has bright orange flames and an intricate design, none of which are visible when actually playing the game. This has led to a raft of complaints from fans who feel like they have been misled by Activision.
Despite the issues with Call of Duty: Warzone, it appears as if Activision intends for it to continue evolving over the coming months and years. It recently emerged that Raven Software has hired more than 100 new developers. The studio is the lead developer of the battle royale game and is tasked with updating it and adding new content regularly. The fact the company has expanded suggests it will continue to work on Warzone for some time to come.
Call of Duty: Warzone has been involved in several controversies since it launched, so the latest uproar is not entirely unexpected. The popularity and success of the battle royale title mean that any negative change or mistake can lead to a strong reaction from fans, as is the case here. It remains to be seen, though, whether Activision or Raven Software will do anything to ease concerns.
