Call of Duty: Warzone 2 – Developers bring back classic Gulag

Follow US


Developer Raven Software revisits another major new feature in Warzone 2.0, leaving the community cheering once again.

Shortly after the new Gulag with its 2v2 mode was introduced during the CoD Next event, criticism started to pour in. Large parts of the Warzone community never really warmed up to the new game mechanic and demanded the classic 1v1 Gulag back. Warzone 2 developer Raven Software has now apparently heard the players’ prayers.

Classic Warzone Gulag is coming back

After starting to remove unpopular mechanics in Warzone 2.0 some time ago, the developers have now taken on the Gulag, removing the unpopular 2v2 mode from the Battle Royale.

Along with other improvements, the changes are set to take effect with the release of Season 2 on February 15.

On Twitter, the news was largely received positively by the community. Prominent players and influencers from the Warzone scene such as TrueGameData, JGOD or TimTheTatman also applauded Raven Software and the planned changes.

The latter, by the way, has been convinced since a very strange incident that there will be skill-based hit registration in Warzone 2.0.

Long list of changes

After developers Raven Software took the reins in Warzone 2.0, some very unpopular decisions have already been reversed in the Battle Royale shooter.

In addition to doubling the number of Buy Stations on Al Mazrah, they also made Loadouts drops purchasable in Buy Stations again. They also reduced the price of Loadout weapons and fixed the Ultimate Perks in Warzone 2.

Within the community, the studio has been celebrated for this for quite some time and is seen as a saviour in need to prevent the further crash of Warzone 2.

The number of players in the shooter has been dropping rapidly since the beginning of December 2022 and has caused the active community to shrink to around 120,000 users. Since its release on 16 November, the Warzone Caldera successor has lost an incredible 73% of its players.

It remains to be seen whether the changes initiated by Raven Software can slow down or even reverse the fall of Warzone 2.0
