Is ‘The Haunting’ in Warzone Worse Than Last Year’s Halloween Event?

Why do Warzone players think that this year’s Haunting event is way worse than the Haunting of Verdansk from last Halloween?

Warzone players are always looking forward to new in-game events. Although, not all of them live up to the lofty expectations.

‘The Haunting’ in Warzone is a Major Disappointment for Fans

There were very high hopes for the new Warzone event. After all, the new ‘Ghosts of Verdansk’ game mode lets you play as a terrifying ghost.

Players can now complete a load of Halloween challenges in Warzone and Cold War. And, if they do, they can unlock the new LAPA SMG.

Meanwhile, the Haunting event has also added two cool horror-inspired skins:

If you think ‘The Haunting’ in Warzone was a bit of a letdown, don’t worry. A leak has revealed details about the upcoming Warzone Pacific Map reveal event.

Additionally, data miners have found the Warzone Chapter 3 release date. This could be the day that Warzone players finally drop into the Pacific map.
