Call of Duty Warzone players have discovered that the game’s Bounty contracts have seemingly been removed from the game.
When players collect ‘Most Wanted’ in Battle Royale or Plunder matches, they are temporarily made a Bounty Target for every team on the game map. If they survive, all their fallen teammates will be redeployed.
However, players have discovered that missing from the patch notes was the detail that Most Wanted has seemingly replaced the existing Bounty contracts, which allow players to hunt rival teams for Plunder rewards.
On Wednesday celebrity streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins questioned the removal of Bounty contracts in a tweet sent to his 5.7 million followers.
Update: A follow-up patch has removed the Most Wanted contracts and reinstated Bounty ones. It’s unclear if Infinity Ward made the change in response to player complaints or because the feature may have been bugged.
The studio has also released a Modern Warfare and Warzone fix which targets connection issues and long matchmaking times players have been experiencing following this week’s updates. It’s working to resolve voice chat problems too.
Original story continues: It’s not the first time Warzone has removed game content to make way for new features. Trios – the three-person setup the game launched with – has now been removed and reinstated twice, while fans eagerly await news on a Battle Royale Duos release.
Since this week’s patch, Warzone players have also noticed a new Red Access Card dropping from Legendary Crates, however it’s not clear what this item’s use is.
Easter Eggs have been littered around the Warzone game map since launch, such as various locked bunkers, telephones and computers. Players are prompted to interact with these items, but seemingly without any effect.
However, since this week’s update players have uncovered a bunker door opening animation within Warzone’s game files, which suggests that these mysterious items might soon have a function.
Tuesday’s Warzone update makes a number of other additions to Warzone, the most significant of which is the Armor Satchel.
The Armour Satchel can be looted or obtained via Scavenger contracts (replacing the Gas Mask reward) and allows players to carry up to eight armour plates instead of five.
Developer Infinity Ward has also adjusted the speed and sizing of the circle and the cargo truck has been added back into Battle Royale Solos with reduced turning speed, acceleration, and top speed.
Infinity Ward also confirmed that Killcam & Spectate reporting functionality will go live this week in both Warzone and Modern Warfare.
