The much-anticipated Call of Duty: Warzone is finally here and comes with two game modes – Battle Royale and Plunder. The Battle Royale pits a squad comprising three members against up to 49 other teams in a 'last squad standing' match with up to 150 players.
Plunder, on the other hand, tasks players with collecting the most in-match cash by looting across the map, stealing money from the enemies, and completing in-game contracts. Warzone takes place within Verdansk, an expansive city which has a number of named zones and more than 300 points of interest.
While the Call of Duty: Warzone may be a highly intriguing game, a number of players have been facing some issues around lags and crashing, especially on PCs. Here’s a quick look at some of the issues faced by users:
I had a lot of fun playing #Warzone tonight. It's a really good game BUT :— Medusa 🐍 (@medusnakes) March 11, 2020
- 90% of my friends can't join me coz their game keep crashing,
- Many lags early game for me.
Even with a good pc and internet connection, it's just so hard to run this game 😢 pic.twitter.com/OhylHKA2P6
Well, I gave COD #Warzone a try on PC and it's laughable how bad it is. Can't run for more than a minute without crashing and exiting with no error. After an hour and a half of messing with it, I got about a full minute of training and it was not fun. Back to #Fortnite!— NuclearGeek (@spickett84) March 10, 2020
Well at least I can install warzone on my Xbox and play with my squad until the pc gets resolved but it will be hard not playing at 120fps+ which I had before the crashing— Thad A. 🏄🏻♂️ (aka BlackMesa3) (@SkinnySurfer) March 11, 2020
