Swagg Calls for Warzone 2 Devs to Bring Back Three Things to Stop It Going ‘Backward’
Swagg had a blast playing Warzone. In July 2022, he doubled down on his commitment to play it on stream despite calls for him to stop, explaining the gameplay kept him coming back.
The FaZe Clan creator doesn’t share the same enthusiasm for Warzone 2. He claims it’s because the devs killed off three things—sniping, movement, and loadouts.
In an interview with Dexerto, he said the sniping community is gone because “snipers can’t one-shot,” the movement community is gone because the sliding mechanic was nerfed, and those who like collecting guns and camos have less to work with than ever before because of “limited loadouts.”
“They need to bring them back,” he added. “I don’t know the direction or where they are trying to take it, but I just hope they understand that there should be a middle ground. They built up Warzone and did it so well, and then just took all the small things and the quality of life updates and brought it backward.”
Swagg isn’t the only creator who has mixed feelings about Warzone 2. Earlier this week, other streamers locked horns over whether the addition of Strongholds is a good thing.
Meanwhile, TeePee criticized the December patch, claiming it doesn’t do enough to keep people interested, TimTheTatman is concerned about the lack of interest from viewers when he streams it, and DrDisrespect doesn’t seem to like it at all. Warzone 2’s player count on Steam continues to decline, too.
It seems like the devs have work cut out for them, but if anyone knows how they can turn things around, it’s a veteran Warzone player like Swagg—and his suggestions don’t seem like a big ask in the grand scheme of things.
