The Warzone 2 image shows the disadvantages of removing the backpack

A passionate gamer presents a picture of how the new Call of Duty: Warzone 2 loot shower from a defeated opponent can be very problematic.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2‘s Season 2 is now live and brings with it a variety of changes and overhauls to game mechanics, but at least one of the changes isn’t going down too well with some players in the community. The new backpack system in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 brought about a significant change to the battle royale’s inventory system at launch, and players shared some of their concerns with Activision and Infinity Ward during Season 1, prompting the studio to change how the system worked in Season 2.


While most gaming systems in Call of Duty: Warzone have been ported and reworked to work in the world of war zone 2, the backpack system is a new design decision by the developers. In the original war zone, players would automatically pick up ammo, cash, and armor plates from the ground and defeat enemies, but they would not be able to store additional items. In war zone 2, Infinity Ward decided to change the system with upgradable backpacks to allow players to choose what to store. And when they kill an enemy, they drop a lootable backpack that allows players to select specific items for future use. This new iteration of looting next to it Call of Duty: Warzone 2‘s new Armor Vest system was not welcomed by part of the player base who argued this success war zone 2 should be based on skill and timing rather than RNG and stacking of revive kits and spare plates.

In Season 2 of Call of Duty: Warzone 2, Infinity Ward has decided to completely remove the upgradable backpacks and replace them with any player that spawns with limited inventory space. Also, the game now spreads loot around a defeated enemy instead of spawning a backpack. Reddit user Chieffelix472 posted a screenshot on the social media platform showing the current state of this loot shower. In the post, Chieffelix472 can be seen hovering over a defeated enemy, and instead of spawning the dropped items in that spot, the weapons and ammo only clump together in a single spot, making it significantly more difficult to sort through the items at a glance.

Other players on the subreddit have expressed their dissatisfaction with the new system. The first comment is very explicit about how important items like durable gas masks, killstreaks, and self revive kits can now be stuck under a defeated player, causing players to waste time trying to loot. The player base agreed that Infinity Ward should tackle the RNG to find a backpack and fix the glitches of interacting with dropped backpacks. The updated system in Season 2 of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 instead brings a new set of issues to the table without addressing any of the previous issues.

The backpack and loot shower issue is among the many issues currently plaguing the game and Activision and Infinity Ward have already addressed these concerns and are taking note and addressing them. For now, players will have to endure the filthy showers of loot as they take on the new Ashika Island map and Resurgence mode Call of Duty: Warzone 2‘s season 2.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
