Should self revives get a nerf on Season 2?

BY

When you ‘down’ an enemy in Warzone, you can often pick them off shortly after reassessing your situation, as the downed player typically doesn’t present a threat. This is usually the right move as they may have a teammate around the corner or another combatant may have been tracking the same target. However, this tactic gets completely flipped upside down if the downed player has a self revive. Which brings us to our question: are self revives broken in Warzone 2? Many Redditors seem to think so, with this post picking up steam today at a 94% upvote rating:

While the speed of self revives themselves have not changed much since Warzone 1, it’s really the combination of other mechanic changes that make this an issue:

  • Ability to hold multiple self revives
  • Frequency of self revives in loot
  • Slower movement speed overall
  • Not being able to plate while running

With Season 2 just around the corner, will we be seeing an adjustment to the self revive mechanic in Warzone 2?


Will players move to Apex Legends given the negative feedback Warzone 2 has received from community?

It’s no secret that many Warzone fans aren’t happy with how Warzone 2 was rolled out. This outcry from loyal players has prompted Activision to quickly follow-up with major changes in Season 2 of Warzone 2, with many seeing this as a reversal to Warzone 1 mechanics (in a good way).

However, will Warzone 1 players return in droves or has the damage already been done? One title that has been gaining in popularity while Activision figures out what they want Warzone 2 to become is Apex Legends. Taking a look at the data available through Steam, we see that while Warzone has been losing players, Apex Legends has been gaining:

  • Warzone 2 averaged 105K players in the last 30 days, a -41% drop
  • Apex Legends averaged 198K players in the last 30 days, a +16% gain

Couple this with popular streamers, like DrDisrespect claiming that Apex Legends is a better Battle Royale, players must be wondering what this means for the future of Warzone 2.

“There’s so many different elements in the game that require a sense of brains to make a decision and to execute the decision. That’s why I like Apex. You could feel intelligent design behind the game“, explains DrDisrespect in a recent YouTube video.
