I’m already bored with the multiplayer maps. Even though there’s what 8 maps I feel like I’m playing like 4 of them over and over again. I absolutely hate the ship one. Ugh....

Yeah there are not nearly enough multiplayer maps. I love the ship one though, probably my favorite :D

Campaign was good but a bit short. Graphics are pretty solid and performance can be tweaked to be acceptable. I do think the UHD textures are what cause the stutters on my 2080 when I enable ray tracing, seems its hitting right up to the limit of the VRAM.

They were causing stutters on my 2080Ti so backed them down a notch.

Man I can't even play the game. I got it with the 3080 I bought and I keep getting fatal error on the Danang mission I get to play like 20 seconds into the mission and it crashes at the same place every time.

So, is the game still unstable? Pretty much went back to WZ since BOCW keeps crashing every other MP match, and Zombies is outright unplayable last I checked.

So I have a i7-8700 and a 2080ti and maxing out settings with RTX on or off is netting me between 30 and 40 fps at 1440p.What's going on?

May be helpful to some, i had to do the first part. Game not crashing anymore.

Deleting the Battle.net Cache Folder

A corrupted cache folder can cause issues with some Blizzard games. Deleting this folder will not affect your game data and may resolve issues caused by outdated files.

Close any open Blizzard programs.
Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the Task Manager.
Select the Processes tab.
If agent.exe is running—or Blizzard Update Agent in Windows 10—highlight it then select End Process.
Navigate to the folder containing the cache directory:
Press Windows Key+R to open the Run dialogue.
Type %ProgramData% into the Run field and press Enter.
If a Blizzard Entertainment folder exists in the directory, right-click it and select Delete.
Restart the Battle.net desktop app and relaunch the game.



Deleting Battle.net Files

Outdated, corrupted, or missing Battle.net folders or files can cause issues with the Blizzard application and games. Follow these steps to resolve these issues:

Close all Blizzard processes.
Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the Task Manager.
Select the Processes tab.
Highlight all Agent, Blizzard Battle.net desktop app, and game processes, then select End Process.
Navigate to the folder containing the Battle.net directory:
Press Windows Key+R to open the Run dialogue.
Type C:\ProgramData\ into the Open field and press Enter.
Delete the Battle.net folder.
Run Battle.net and update the game.

If the error persists after you try these steps, another program may be causing the problem. Restart your computer and try these steps again.

Please note: The above steps may cause the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app to forget game install locations. If your games can’t be found, you will see Install on the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app game tab instead of Play. To find your installation and select Locate this game or run the game launcher.

I’m done until the next patch, ever since the latest update i have to restart every 4-5 matches due the game stuttering. They have copied and pasted this game for ten years now, how this shit isn’t perfect is beyond me.

I do enjoy the game though. Watching console aim assist in play of the games is hilarious....so op.

Ive been done for months.
This week I'm going to be very cautious about what theyre releasing bc I've got 0 confidence they addressed any legacy bugs.

I watched a few Warzone streams late last night.
Alcatraz doesn't seem as compelling to play as the 1st time around.

So looks like MW is now called Warzone in Battle.net launcher. There are some new weapons for BOCW & Warzone. Do we get those in regular MW?

BOCW is $40 right now. I'm tempted, but doubt I'd play it much, didn't like the beta. Think I'll stay on MW until another good BF game comes along.

I’d wait to buy CW, Season 1 feedback is underwhelming.
Maybe there will be a $12 Spring sale like BO4 once they get around to fixing some issues.

Warzone I’d just wait bc invisible hack means if you make it to final circle you'll just freak out bc someone is running around you killing your teammates racking cheap wins.

Well I ended up getting a key for this. Will definitely install but wish what I was reading about it was a little more positive.

I prefer mp to warzone and am just a little bored with mw mp atm.

I think this will scratch the MP itch just fine. I like it a lot for that purpose - jumping into a couple MP rounds in between other games (Cyberpunk, Assassins Creed:Valhalla).

Had to unplug 2nd monitor, reset cmos and run my system on stock boosts rather than my usual adaptive clock.

Stupid shader install stuck in MP and warzone.

are the 6v6 game modes P2P? or is the tickrate just low? I get shot around corners a ton, and general hit detection isnt great.

I really think sometimes this game is p2p. Several times my friend and I have been put in “servers” where everyone is speaking Spanish and our pings are around 200. It’s happened multiple times.

I didn't think i'd like this, but I enjoyed the free trial this weekend enough that I bought it at the discount price.

For whatever reason, i'm enjoying the multiplayer more than MW. The maps are more interesting to me, and generally it just feels better to me.

No technical issues for me. Although if you had technical issues with the last one it won't be different here. The way these games run reveals PC stability issues quickly.

I'm playing Nuketown right now.
Noticed my 2060 placeholder is cranking 200+ fps at 1440p on competitive settings.

Warzone is brutal, have a flat 100fps in comparison. BO4 was nothing that dramatic compared to Blackout. Ton of optimization isn't there in WZ still. I recall it brutalized my 1080ti.

I can only imagine how hard consoles are getting hammered.

Had to run stock clocks to minimize crashes.
I feel for the random Xbox guys I get partied with that I know will crash out.

Game still needs a bunch of work.

I am pretty sure they turned up the aim assist for console players, it is super obvious it is doing a lot more aiming now.

IMO aim assist needs to be gotten rid of in normal multiplayer. It’s insanely obvious how much it benefits them. I played a match with my controller plugged in and I couldn’t believe how much it’s doing.

Three questions.

1) Is there a hardcore mode? If so how do you enable it?

2) Can you just filter to Team Death match?

3) Is the game normally so laggy? Or just because the free weekend event is overloading the servers? Lag is terrible compared to MW, I played MW earlier and it was smooth. This was jerky and stuttering.

Edit: Will answer my own questions for those wondering.

1) I've seen one video with clear evidence of a hardcore mode, but no mention of it in the game itself nor anyway to switch to such a mode. I assume they had it in an earlier build but pulled it after release.

2) No.

3) Yes. Feels like 250 ping and the animations are done at 45 or so frame rates. Add in player animations where it seems like only the arms and legs move (the torso just stays straight) it makes it hard to tell what is going on. It makes it nearly impossible to ID targets. Yes, character's legs move below the knees and the arms do but that is it. Looks so awkward. Animations are jerky all over, and you can't tell when your weapon is ready or not. You can clearly see parts. Everything is still, then half a second later a magazine is slide slapped in, no natural movement of the arms or weapon between. It looks worse than indie games, including ones from a decade ago.

Seems like an alpha build still. Without a hardcore or game mode filter I'm not buying. And in all the other incomplete features like animations and the like, and I can't see what the point of this game is. Switching back to MW was night and day. Everything was so smooth. No lag, finished weapon & character animations, a filter for game modes and hardcore.

IMO they may as well pull it from the market and try again next year.

I don’t know about hardcore mode, but you absolutely can filter to just team death match. You just hit quick play filters up in the top left, and select it... I’m pretty sure hardcore is there as well just like MW.

As for lag, I don’t find it any different than MW. I really only ever see lag when playing zombies because zombies relies on P2P hosting. The game feels exactly the same as MW in almost every way. I play both for the daily challenges. However, I prefer this one because I like the weapons and maps better.

This is what it looks like for me. I can do TDM only, but no HC in sight?

Ah, looks like they remove the filtering options and HC for the Trial version. In the full version your fireteam button is replaced with 'Quick Play'. When you hit Quick Play it shows the below screen.

Well that is too bad. Can't seem to get around the lag either. I switch between this and MW and it is a night and day difference. It isn't a frame rate issue, but a lag one. Wondering if the trial version is somehow worse. Which doesn't make sense, if they want people to try the game they're not doing a good job of it.

I didn’t have lag in the trial when I was playing, but who knows how they are handling it. From my experience it’s nearly identical to MW in that regard.

I don’t have any lag in either Warzone / Modern Warfare multi or Cold War

runs as COD always does, it’s pretty smooth on both my laptop and desktop. Hell, even my PS5

Its a big better today (just tried it). Still laggy though. Frame rates are also lower than MW, considering its a newer game that is understandable. Graphics look practically the same though yet I get around 70-85 rather than 80-100.

Maps seem a bit smaller in TDM compared to MW but I've only played a few.

The game 100% looks better, it's not massive, but it's an upgrade from MW. Personally, it runs the same for me because this updated engine has DLSS support. I don't use any RT features, but enable DLSS quality. With max settings (Minus RT) @ 4k i'm looking at about 100 FPS. This is about on-par with MW w/ RT disabled @ 4k as well.

Finally got that 160gb download knocked out lol. Look forward to giving this a shot. Wonder what kind of performance I can expect at 4K with a 3080.

Playing it a bit more. Maps seem a bit more simple and smaller than MW overall. Not a big fan but some maps were better. Its okay. If I got it for cheap/free I'd probably play it every now and then. $40, still not sure I'd go for it.

I missed the free week when I tried to play it at 10:03am yesterday.

There was something comforting and familiar about sitting on Nuketown and Raid for an hour or 2.

I'm not paying $40 for BO1 and BO2 nostalgia. The new maps suck, SBMM sucks, Warzone < Blackout.

Yeah MW spoiled people closest thing to BF 4. When BF 6 comes out I'll jump on that.

So I just started playing and have only played zombies so far, which I think is actually pretty fun, but I keep getting disconnected for whatever reason and it’s really annoying. Is this common?

Yes, in pubs. Zombies is P2P hosting. So if someone disconnects it fucks with things.
