Trendy Warfare 3 launched with a variety of baggage carried over from Trendy Warfare 2, and the outdated model of Warzone. As a result of the overwhelming majority of skins, weapons, operators and extra carry ahead from these video games to this 12 months’s Name of Responsibility, issues turned clear on day one.
One of many extra egregious was, after all, visibility of sure skins, or moderately, lack thereof.
This tends to occur very often with Name of Responsibility, however the challenge this time is that it is affecting the brand new recreation, which isn’t one thing you sometimes have to fret about while you transfer to a brand new Name of Responsibility. Trendy Warfare 3 gamers instantly identified how completely damaged the Gaia (Groot) pores and skin is in conventional multiplayer.
The pores and skin makes the participant utilizing it very exhausting to see, as a result of its complete physique is clear. It blends rather well in darkish corners, and could be even difficult to identify in well-lit environments. Gamers have been calling for the pores and skin to be disabled simply as Trendy Warfare 3 launched, as a result of a lot of them have been residing with these actual issues in Trendy Warfare 2 and Warzone.
However Sledgehammer Video games has been silent, till now. The workforce took half in a Reddit AMA just lately, and also you guess probably the most well-liked matters concerned that exact same Groot pores and skin. The excellent news is that the pores and skin is being adjusted, and the even higher information is that till that occurs, a future patch will disable it solely.
“Changes to Gaia and Gaia Blackcell Operator Skins are within the pipeline for Trendy Warfare 3,” the developer informed Reddit customers (by way of GamesRadar). “In a future recreation replace, we’ll disable this merchandise till stated adjustments could be launched to all gamers.”
This tune and dance is all too acquainted to long-time Name of Responsibility gamers. Everybody remembers Roze, Black Noir and so many different strong black skins. Often, these skins go on sale and folks purchase them, whether or not as a result of they just like the look or the benefit they provide in multiplayer.
Everybody else screams about them for some time, then they get “adjusted” as soon as they promote most of what Activision doubtless projected for them. In Gaia’s case, the pores and skin has two variants – each of that are half of the present battle move. Neither is nowhere close to as egregious as a few of these different examples, however they nonetheless exist to incentivise gamers to purchase the battle move.
Seeing as Sledgehammer Video games didn’t say once we can anticipate the patch that disables the pores and skin, or the one which “fixes” it, we will solely assume the primary will arrive with the beginning of season 1 in early December. Conveniently, after all, that is additionally when the present battle move will finish and anybody who missed out on Gaia could have no method of getting it.
