Activision has just released their latest Community Update blog post. We’ve read through the update to give you a synopsis of key changes to expect on the ‘Path to Season 2’ for Warzone 2.

Warzone 2 Season 2 Confirmed Changes:

  • Customizable Perk Packages
  • 3-Plate vest to start
  • Bust through doors while plating
  • Updated menu system (camo system, new social tab, “My Bundles” screen)
  • Improved After Action report with audio
  • 1v1 Gulag will return
    • Same map for now but a new 1v1 map will be introduced in the future
  • Slight reduction to contract rewards
  • Minimum cash pile loot increased to $800, $500 for cash registers
  • Floating loot UI (no more loot menus / windows)

Customizable Perk Packages is a fairly significant change to the game. Many players were speculating whether the fixed packages were intentionally designed as to make decisions easier for players. With the introduction of customizable perk packages, we should see further expansion into more novel loadouts and playstyles. For many this will for sure be a welcomed addition!

Making the 3-Plate vest a loot only item was fairly controversial at the start of Warzone 2. We can expect that this will have a significant impact on TTK now that all players will spawn with a 3-Plate vest. Overall, we think this is a positive move that will be celebrated by Warzone 1 fans.

Overall, it seems like the most meaningful changes are bringing the Warzone 2 experience closer to what we had in Warzone 1. The Full Season 2 announcement with final release notes will be made available on February 8th, 2023.


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.
