Call Of Duty: Warzone for consoles is in a dreadful state at the moment compared to it's PC counterpart.  The following issues are hugely prevalent in the console versions of the game and need addressing urgently:

  • Hackers: this is something that's mainly aimed at PC players who utilise extremely cheap hacks like Aimbot and Wallhacks but we've also seen a rise in Cronus players.  Hackers spoil the gaming experience for those of us who just want to have fun.  It takes the fun out of Warzone and leaves people not wanting to play the game.
  • Poor rendering of assets: Loading into a game is sometimes a horrendous experience due in part to the awful rendering of graphical assets.  Player models appear in low-fidelity with hideously deformed polygonal faces.  Rendering buildings through a sniper scope can also be a painful experience.  If the buildings don't render correctly when scoped in - what is the point of using long ranged scoped weaponry?  Constant pop-in and pop-out of trees and grass is also an issue when prone - it makes lying in wait for enemy players difficult because you struggle to see them across the undergrowth.
  • Dreadful directional audio: I think this is one that the majority of the community has raised an issue with over the past year - the directional audio for footsteps is AWFUL.  In spectate mode, the footstep audio and direction is much better but the person actually playing still struggles.  When using Playstation Party Chat, the footstep audio is next to useless.  There needs to be a huge improvement in directional audio on a game where such audio is key - the ability to calculate where an approaching enemy player is in your building is vital for survival.  Without this, people don't even need to use Dead Silence as they can just run into a building and players are guessing their location.
  • Dead Silence: Talking of Dead Silence - this needs removing from the game.  If we are striving for an element of realism and boots on the ground combat, being able to mask your footsteps completely and run faster gives players an unfair advantage - especially given the previous bullet point about audio.  In many players' opinion, there is no need for Dead Silence and Stopping Power in Warzone.  They are unnecessary advantages that players shouldn't have.
  • Inability to custom bind controller layout: There are a decent number of controller layouts but surely we should have the ability to rebind every button for the Warzone experience to our desire?  It's not something that's difficult to implement so why not add a Custom layout option?
  • Movement speed: I know that this is tied to FPS etc but playing Warzone on the PC and then going back to console is such a backwards step in terms of movement fluidity and speed.  Being able to traverse the map smoothly and quickly is something that either needs slowing down on the PC version or the console versions need some kind of movement update.  Running to escape the gas on console is akin to a walking simulator whereas on PC it's quite a fast and responsive journey.
  • Stuttering servers: For a AAA game with Activision's backing, having stuttering and rubber-banding servers is poor.  Yes, Warzone is a free-to-play game but surely something that can have the servers fixed.  Some nights, playing Warzone even on my own EU servers with a low ping can be a painful and lag-filled experience.
