Call of Duty: Warzone Players Are Demanding Combat Scout Changes
Warzone was launched in 2020. Raven Software has made many changes to the game over the five seasons of battle royale. Players have many reasons to return to the game, including map modifications for Verdansk and new weapons. The community has not been happy with all the changes. Some fans have been calling on the developers to fix Combat Scout perk.
The Combat Scout perk was released with Season 5’s Tempered perk. It provides vital information to players on the battlefield. This perk is activated when a player damages an enemy. The wounded opponent will be highlighted briefly. This intel can change the outcome of a fight as the squad members who have it can also see the injured enemy. Some believe the Combat Scout perk is a way to balance the current meta.
Reddit user zfluffz posted a picture of the Combat Scout perk. They attempted to prove this by making a video. Warzone : Call of Duty Perk was OP. The clip began with the player shooting at an enemy who was hiding in a barn. The injured player fled behind a wall after they had successfully shot the opponent. Fortunately for the enemy, zfluffz could still see their location thanks to the Combat Scout perk. The highlighted enemy was then shot multiple times through the wall and knocked down.
This video by zfluffz has sparked discussion among members of the Warzone Community. Many players agreed with them, noting that the perk forced players to select Cold Blooded perk which prevents players being detected. Some players suggested that Combat Scout would be even more effective in shooting through walls of highlighted enemies if they had Full Metal Jacket.
zfluffz was not the only one who disagreed. They stated that Combat Scout was not an issue as long as there were perks to offset it. Others argued that players were forced to use the same perks each time. They argued that fights became less exciting and more predictable.
Fans continue to debate the efficacy of this perk. However, others are preparing for Season 6 Warzone. The new season, which launched on October 7, adds new content such as new operators and weapons and changes to Verdansk and the Gulag. It will be interesting to see how the developers address fans’ concerns about Combat Scout in this new season.
