Call of Duty Warzone Will Not Change Engines For Black Ops Cold War

Many fans and enthusiasts have been speculating over how Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will affect the current Warzone we all know and love. Today an Activision’s Art Lead has given us further clarity on that with a simple comment reply on an archaically old forum, Resetera.

Activision Employee Confirms Warzone remains on same engine

This clarity comes after a fan commented asking how the engine shift will occur and what impacts it would have on Warzone. This fan is not alone in any sense of the word, as the entire Call of Duty community has been asking this very same question since Warzone was originally announced to span between multiple titles in the Call of Duty Franchise.

Warzone Will Remain on Infinity Ward’s Newest Engine

This means that Warzone will remain on the engine that originally popularized Warzone, which was developed specifically for Modern Warfare and Warzone.

This includes movement, which raises another question as previous leaks and rumors have pointed to the ability to swim in the new Warzone map, slated to come sometime in 2021 per rumors. Many fans got to experience the swimming mechanics of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War during the open beta.

However this new update raises even more questions than it answered. Let’s take a look at a few of those.

Will Weapon Mounting Remain in Warzone

One of the most polarizing features of Modern Warfare 2019 has been the weapon mounting feature, which allows you to turn your firearm in to a laser accurate weapon of destruction, as well as peak around corners while not showing your entire hitbox.

As we saw in the Black Ops Cold War beta, weapon mounting is not a feature of the next title in the Call of Duty franchise. So what does this mean for Warzone?

Will they simply scrap this feature from the current engine as a part of the integration of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone? Or will weapon mounting remain? As of right now we have no clear cut answers for you, and it’s entirely a speculative topic.

Loadouts, Operators, Blueprints Will Remain Untouched in Warzone

What we do know is that loadouts, operators, and purchased weapon blueprints will remain untouched for the integration of BOCW in to Warzone. As Activision president Rob Kostich said himself, “Now players can of course continue to use their Modern Warfare content in Warzone once Black Ops launches. And as a result, one cool feature players will see is that they’ll be able to choose either their Black Ops loadout or their Modern Warfare loadout in Warzone for their gameplay.”

While this is comforting to know, it raises EVEN MORE questions.

Will perks from Black Ops Cold War be introduced into Warzone? What about Wild Cards? Will we be able to run 6 perks at once in Warzone once the integration of Black Ops Cold War is complete?

Yet again, we don’t have any answers or insight into these questions that will be swirling around the community. For now, we like the rest of you, will be eagerly waiting on more information.

What Questions Do You Want Answered About Warzone in BOCW

  1. I still want to know if they’re going to integrate FOV sliders for console players into Warzone. Being locked to 80 FOV leaves console players at such a disadvantage and we got it in the open beta. With next gen consoles we’ll have higher fps… but that only helps so much if there is no FOV sliders introduced

  2. Hello, thanks for the excellent articles you have offered us, keep up the good work !!!

    I am curious about how the servers will work, will we be playing on 2 line servers?

    Another curiosity is the anti-cheat, I am tired of dying for cheaters and that is one of the questions that lead me to ponder whether or not to buy the game.

    Thank you.

  3. Wildcard will not be a thing in warzone, just like you cannot use specialist in warzone at present.
    However the specialist pickup from the Easter egg shows us multiple perks are possible at once…

    As for swimming, it will not be difficult to add that into the me engine as it is a newer engine based off of the older engines before, which includes CW engine.

    What I find an issue is how at present you can play wz without purchasing mw and the only issue you will have is leveling up new weapons and unlocking guns like the bruen (3 near smoke kills in one warzone match is near impossible for 99% of the non hacking player base, forget that you need 15 such matches to unlock it…)

    But from what I hear, you will not be able to use CW weapons in wz unless you own CW, asides from any ground loot CW weapons and taking downed player weapons…
    If that is true I will be very upset given I paid for mw just for wz players to benefit from the mw guns free, but no one can benefit from CW guns unless you own it too…

  4. When will we see war animal’s that our skins can ride like in the old days when soldiers would ride horses?

  5. Could you make the benefits of the bipods more noticeable, in real life they do make a big difference for long range shots and as a handycap you could add animation of opening the bipods to set up and vise versa. That would make it applicable mainly for snipers and gunners “lmg’s” that are hidden or in cover.

  6. Are they going to fix the terrible net code? Are they actually going to do anything about cheaters? Neither of these issues have been legitimately addressed. They may say they have addressed issues with cheaters but we all know that’s not true.

  7. Well that’s a shame, because BOCW’s movement system feels about a thousand times better than MW, having played both on PC. I can also say that graphical fidelity, texture quality and, most importantly, engine optimization are next-gen compared to 2019’s title.

  8. What i want to know is,is warzone still going to keep the challanges for camos to do in modern warfare multiplayer,or go over to coldwar multiplayer?
