Warzone Lens Flare Will Be Toned Down Soon, Says Raven VFX Artist

The lens flare in Warzone won’t be a problem for much longer.

Season 3 of Warzone sent players back to 1984 and dropped players into an ’80s version of Verdansk. And while most players love all the changes with the new map, there has been one major complaint.

The lighting has come under fire from large sections of the player base as in certain spots on the map, it is very difficult to see enemies thanks to glare. Luckily, this won’t be a problem for much longer.

Warzone Verdansk ’84 Lens Flare Fix Coming Soon

Many players have described the lighting in Verdansk ’84 as the biggest problem in Warzone at the moment. However, a new friendly-fire vehicle glitch that lets players run over their teammates might be even worse.

Luckily, the Lead Warzone VFX Artist at Raven Software, Reed Shingledecker, has responded to fan complaints about this problem.

He tweeted to ask fans about the problem with the game’s lens flare and many responded to his tweet asking him to change it. One of the biggest requests was to change the lighting system to the brand-new Rebirth Island lighting which players love.

This then prompted a response from Shingledecker about lens flare in Warzone. He tweeted:

Looks like I know what I’m doing on Monday. I’m happy to look and address any VFX concerns. Thanks for the feedback. I don’t have the power to change the entire lighting of the map though. Lighting feedback can be sent to @RavenSoftware
