Last week the free-to-play shooter’s Season 3 update removed the three-person squad mode in a move that was negatively received by some fans.
The mode was replaced with a Quads playlist. However, Trios was patched back into the game just two days later, following a negative reaction from the Warzone player community.
UPDATE: Infinity Ward will reinstate Call of Duty: Warzone’s Trios playlist for a second time, following complaints from fans this week.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: In a new update released on Tuesday, Infinity Ward has again announced it’s replaced the standard Trios playlist, this time switching it out for a Scopes and Scatter Guns variant which limits weapons to only snipers and shotguns.
Currently, a post criticising the removal of standard Trios is the day’s most popular thread on the official Warzone Subreddit, with over 4,000 upvotes.
“Absolutely NOONE wants your limited-time modes to replace the core modes of BR,” the post reads. “You’re killing your own game here by rotating game modes constantly.”
Another highly upvoted comment reads: “They are literally trolling at this point. There’s is no way they can seriously be this out of touch with the community.”
Fans have also expressed frustration over the lack of information on an expected Duos playlist.
The much-requested two-person squad mode looks set to be added to Warzone during Season 3, according to an image which briefly appeared on the game’s website last week. However, there’s been no official mention of when it could release.
Warzone launched with two 150-player game modes, Battle Royale and Plunder, although it will support 200-player matches in the future, and Infinity Ward is working on new game modes too.
Call of Duty Warzone has attracted over 50 million players since releasing on March 10, according to publisher Activision.
The milestone player count was announced on April 10 – one month or 31 days after the free-to-play title was released.
By way of comparison, fellow free-to-play battle royale Apex Legends reached 2.5 million players in 24 hours, 10 million players in three days, and 50 million players in 28 days, according to developer Respawn.
