Despite the arrival of numerous patches, there are still plenty of problems affecting Warzone 2 players dropping into Al Mazrah on a regular basis. Call of Duty’s latest battle royale cycle hasn’t started on the front foot due to numerous bugs and glitches impacting various elements of the game.

With attention turning towards the launch of Season Two, several players believe the return of the 1v1 gulag and the arrival of a brand-new Resurgence map could steer Warzone 2 back on track.

In a bid to improve the current experience ahead of the new season, Raven Software has removed an ultimate perk that was giving players a huge advantage over the opposition.

Warzone 2 Birdseye perk removed

Ahead of the next seasonal update, Raven Software has removed the popular Birdseye perk from all perk packages. For the majority of Season One, the perk provides players with the location of opponents whenever a UAV pings during a match. Shortly after players discovered the exploit, Birdseye became the meta but for the final few weeks, an alternative is required.

Raven Software says the perk has disappeared in order to ‘balance it for future implementation into customisable perk packages,’ a much-needed feature making its way to the game in Season Two.

The adjustment has led to plenty of positive feedback from the community. However, the inability to see the location of players on a regular basis has the potential to decrease the pace of play even further.

Content creator @TheMarkOfAHero suggests a simple change to address the problem. “Hope more UAVs can be added in the buy stations for Season 2 or that the Birdseye perk adjustments are good enough to deal with campers.”

Seeing the developers intervene before the issue gets out of hand is a positive step in the right direction. Hopefully, the updates continue addressing problems grinding the gears of fans.
