Call of Duty: Warzone has been met with its fair share of complaints since it made its debut almost two years ago. One of the most heavily discussed aspects of Call of Duty: Warzone is fairness, with the debates often highlighting the battle royale game’s paid cosmetics.
Call of Duty: Warzone’s history with “pay-to-win” cosmetics is extensive, with players pointing to several items as unfair over the years. The most infamous example of this is Call of Duty: Warzone’s Roze skin, a notoriously dark outfit that completely obscured players who hid in shadows or the corners of buildings. The bugged Tier 100 battle pass skin from Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 1 proved equally troublesome. Weapon-wise, a blueprint for the MAC-10 SMG was dubbed “pay-to-win,” and more recently an MP-40 blueprint received that label. However, players have the opposite criticism with one piece of paid content.
While overpowered Call of Duty: Warzone items have frustrated players, the fan base is just as annoyed when the things they pay for are completely useless. A recent Reddit post from user Arbeast21 shows that their NZ-41’s crosshair was off center. This is a massive problem that essentially makes the weapon unusable, as the bullets fired go nowhere near where the player is aiming. For thirty seconds, they fire into some pieces of cover, showing that their weaponry is inaccurate no matter what they do.
While the immediate assumption was that Call of Duty: Vanguard’s NZ-41 was bugged inside Call of Duty: Warzone, it does not seem like that is the case at all. Instead, the Operator skin seems to be the issue, as Reddit user Dylan6269 says that they had the same problem when using the “Oni mask” skin. Another player, named zackpower121, has had the exact same issue when trying to use the skin. The skin is called “Shadow Outcast” and is unlocked for the Operator Shigenori by purchasing the “Curse of the Ancients” bundle.
As is the case with most Call of Duty: Warzone cosmetic bundles, Operator skins are a huge draw. These players were clearly not expecting to be at a disadvantage when using a fancy skin that they paid for, but it sadly seems like that is the case. The bundle in question costs 2400 COD Points, which is roughly $20 USD. Given that the focus of the cosmetic pack being this skin, the fact that players cannot even use it in Call of Duty: Warzone is a massive letdown.
While Raven Software has plenty of Call of Duty: Warzone issues to address, hopefully this one is prioritized. With players spending their hard-earned money on the outfit, they are understandably angry that the attire is completely unusable in its current state.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
