Warzone Pacific Is Becoming Pay to Win, Claims TheTacticalBrit

It appears that content creators are becoming fed up with Warzone after the game begins to steer towards being Pay to Win.

At its core, Call of Duty Warzone is a completely Free-to-Play game, but there’s plenty of incentive to spend money. Although doing so won’t give you any in-game advantage, Activision appears to be pushing sales harder than ever right now.

Recently, we saw the first major RICOCHET anti-cheat ban wave remove cheaters from Warzone. But if you’re thinking of heading back into the Battle Royale, it’s important to take note of the Warzone Pay to Win issues.

And while some Warzone players are quitting because of glitches and Caldera issues, others are feeling exhausted by the new Vanguard grind.

Is Warzone Pacific Pay to Win?

Is Warzone Pacific Pay to Win now that Caldera is here? New evidence certainly suggests so.

In a new video by TheTacticalBrit, the content creator discusses Warzone’s recent Pay to Win issues. And although we’ve seen Pay to Win Blueprints and skins in Warzone previously, fans have now had enough.

TheTacticalBrit attests that Activision is pushing sales of Call of Duty Vanguard hard after the game met with ‘disappointing’ sales.

With the integration of Vanguard into Warzone, Activision is giving players plenty of Blueprints to purchase, to avoid having to level up their guns. Meanwhile, new weapons have an insane number of attachments to grind for, something that is far trickier in Warzone than Vanguard.

Recently, the Warzone Double XP event even excluded Plunder, seemingly in an effort to discourage players from grinding their guns. This left users with Vanguard as the only option when it comes to maxing out guns fast.

“I play this game pretty much every day as a content creator, and I’ve only leveled up a handful of guns,” TheTacticalBrit reports.

The YouTuber goes on to state that casual Warzone players have almost no chance of keeping up with the meta without spending money.

And although there’s this fast weapon XP trick still live in Warzone, many gamers likely resorted to purchasing Vanguard over the holidays.

There’s no wonder that Warzone fans want Raven Software replaced by a new developer right now. But the current Pay to Win issues are more likely due to Warzone publisher Activision.

Is Warzone becoming Pay to Win? How far do you agree with TheTacticalBrit‘s claims?

I find that every Call of Duty game that exists players that spend extra money get some type of unfair advantage against people that don’t...they sell kills like commodities which isn’t even illegal. If companies/corporations will take the last krill in the ocean away from starving whales they will most certainly give you an advantage of you spend money$

@Gunner_10art, that just gets you on an equal level with another tier you still have a super disadvantage when you go up against big spenders

I think this is total BS, I have not purchased a single thing in call of duty past the original modern warfare when it went on discount 3 months after release. I have had no issue maxing battle pass for cod points and unlocking every gun that has become meta as well as the others and leveled most up to achieve most skins as well all by taking advantage of free multi-player and using the battle pass xp tokens. I'm ot the best player and I can say I have an under 1kd yet I can say I win a match of warzone once a week and I only play maybe 2 hours in the evenings and weekends. It's even easier since the new anti cheat too...

@James, yes their greed cured me of my addiction to their game and after I witnessed extreme bs and extortion I will never on my sole spend another dime on Call of Duty

Always been pay to win, the latest version is by far the worst, with the most broken gun I have seen yet. Akimbo double barrel shotgun, it is simply unbeatable close range. Double barrel shotgun isn't unlocked till level 49 then there is 70 levels to grind through. Having been constantly one shot from it as a duo we came across a pair, instant double kill on two players coming through a door way, and went on to destroy the rest of the field for the win

@Capt, I agree it has always been pay to win or get kills but they have taken it to the extreme of cheating more skilled players out of kills because they are considered deadbeats on their servers that beat up on their paying clients so they just transfer kills I’ve send hundreds of fake bs in only one month cured my addiction they did with their greed
