Call of Duty Warzone 2 Players Calling Season 3 DMZ Bundle ‘Pay-to-Win’
Activision is in the crosshairs once again, with Call of Duty and Warzone 2 players accusing the monopoly publisher of introducing “pay-to-win” bundles into the game’s real-money marketplace.
Added to Tomorrow’s season 3 updateA new progression system was added to DMZ, which is described in the patch notes as follows:
- Individual operators now go on “active duty” when used by the player. Only one active duty slot can be equipped at a time, but all players will start with 3 slots.
- Active Duty Operators have their own persistent items: Exfill Streak, Dog Tag Rarity, Backpack Type, Killstreak, Gas Mask and Self Revive.
- Upon failure to Xfill, only that individual operator will have its gear, streak, and dog tag rare reset. All other operators will not be affected.
But, if you’re willing to pony up the cash, you can get access to more active duty operator slots, in addition to some cool perks for participating in the competition. As expected, fans of the game subreddit were less than thrilled with this development. There were also moments of sadness.
It remains to be seen which forces react; The update just dropped yesterday, after all. In similar threads, players listed other complaints.
Is all really fair in both love and war? Do these active duty operator slots deserve to be called pay-to-win? Compete on the most level playing field of all, the comments section below.
