Note della patch – Update Metà Stagione 3 – Warzone/MW3

Season 3 Reloaded Arrives in Modern Warfare® III and Call of Duty®: Warzone™

The vast amount of action brought by the gigantic Season 3 update is set to keep on rolling with the upcoming Season 3 Reloaded content drop, bringing more Multiplayer maps and modes and the introduction of the next story mission, Dark Aether Rift, and more in Modern Warfare Zombies. Adjust your tactics with new items coming to Rebirth Island, including the coveted Specialist Perk Package.

Earn the new BAL-27 Assault Rifle and go classic akimbo and more with new Aftermarket Parts earned via mid-season Weekly Challenges. Plus, Military Appreciation Month kicks off on May 1 and the Call of Duty Endowment (C.O.D.E.) is preparing celebrations. The announcement will be making a knightly descent on May 6, so keep an eye out for how to help place U.S. and U.K. veterans into high quality jobs with what’s to come.

The Season 3 Reloaded mid-season update launches on May 1 at 9AM PT across all platforms. Visit the Call of Duty Blog for all official comms and announcements.

Here’s what’s on the way:

MODERN WARFARE III OVERVIEW [MWIII]

CONTENT SUMMARY

Introducing Minefield and Escort. Watch your step in Minefield and hack multiple points on the map alongside a MAW in Escort.

Two 6v6 Multiplayer Maps. Head to the wrong part of town in the brand-new Grime map and test your skills on Checkpoint based on the Stronghold area of Rebirth Island.

Power Up in the Arcade Playlist. From unlimited ammo modifiers to ultra-powerful weapon pickups, Arcade transforms the Multiplayer experience into a full-blown power simulation.

New Modes: Minefield, Escort

Minefield

Watch your step in the new Minefield game mode, adding an explosive new dynamic to a variety of Multiplayer modes. In this variant, players still adhere to each mode’s basic ruleset with an important caveat: Eliminated Operators drop a Proximity Mine where they fall. The mine cannot be picked up and is deadly to the fallen Operator’s team, setting up the potential for some truly explosive combos.

As the eliminations start racking up, the action grows more intense, challenging players to watch their step while pursuing the next target.

Escort

In Escort, teams take turns escorting a MAW through the environment with the goal of hacking three points across the map. The MAW only moves forward if an attacking Operator is nearby and will move in reverse if a defending Operator closes the distance.

Matches take place over two rounds, giving each team a turn on attack and defense. The team who hacks the most points or who hacks all three points in the shortest amount of time wins the match.

Two Core 6v6 Maps: Grime, Checkpoint

Grime [6v6]

Brand-New, Core, 6v6, Medium-Sized

Navigate an abandoned corner of London as you weave through Grime’s dockside district, a graffiti-laden hub featuring the remnants of the once lively SKN Comms building beside the Captain’s Dog pub and the now-defunct boat house. Swim through the murky waters of the canal and battle along the docks. Surviving this derelict urban location will require smart use of the map’s chokepoints and a penchant for dirty tactics.

Checkpoint (6v6)

New [Repurposed], Core, 6v6, Medium-Sized

With Rebirth Island out in the wild, there’s a good chance that you’ve already engaged in combat in this area based on the island’s eastern Stronghold POI. Checkpoint keeps the fight focused in and around the main buildings of the military comms outpost in a modified version of the map where the upper walkways and control tower are sealed off, emphasizing combat on the ground. Battle within the armory and garage or take on foes in the forward construction site and rear roundabout.

For an interactive Tac-Map and full guide to Checkpoint, click here on Monday April 29.

Power Up in the Arcade Playlist

Boost your powers exponentially with the mid-season Arcade playlist, supporting a variety of maps and modes featuring powerups and special weapon pickups.

Powerups: Eliminated enemies will drop a powerup where they fall, granting one of two temporary abilities on pickup: unlimited ammo or unlimited grenades. Let loose on your foes without mundane concerns like ammo supply and grenade count.

Weapon Pickups: Bring the pain with special weapon pickups scattered throughout the environment, immediately noticeable by their glowing effects and floating animation.

These empowered weapons include the Punch Knife with a dramatically increased lunge distance, the MORS Sniper Rifle and Riveter Shotgun loaded with explosive projectile rounds, and a Minigun that provides a constant Battle Rage effect for improved health regeneration, resistance to Tactical Equipment, and a constant refresh on your Tactical Sprint.

The Vortex Playlist Returns

Redeploy to the otherworldly Vortex Playlist, which goes live again for a limited time in the mid-season. Return, if you dare, to the infected environments of Airborne, Satan’s Quarry, Skidgrow, Sporeyard, and Tetanus. Keep cool and focus on the objective in the Vortex Mosh Pit or risk losing your sanity to these twisted map variants.

New Field Upgrade and Equipment

New Field Upgrade: Enhanced Vision Goggles

Toggle on the Enhanced Vision Goggles for improved target acquisition in the midst of battle. The goggles feature limited battery, displayed by the Field Upgrade charge which depletes as the gadget is in use.

New Tactical: EMD Mine

Deploy this proximity-triggered mine that sticks to surfaces. Once triggered, the mine fires tracking devices that attach to nearby enemy Operators, revealing their position on the minimap for improved tracking.

MODERN WARFARE ZOMBIES OVERVIEW [MWZ]

CONTENT SUMMARY

Rescue Dr. Jansen. In the next Story Mission, Operators join Ravenov in a rescue mission to retrieve Dr. Ava Jansen after she was lured into a Dark Aether Rift.

Earn New Schematics. Acquire up to three new schematics to aid you in your future deployments to the Exclusion Zone.

Face Warlord Rainmaker. Seek out the new Warlord in their fortress on Rahaa Island. Be prepared for explosive combat against this demolitions expert.

The Next Chapter: Saving Dr. Jansen

A new anomaly strikes the Exclusion Zone as the third Dark Aether Rift appears. Dr. Jansen has been lured through its portal, and the Operators of Operation Deadbolt must now conduct a rescue mission with Ravenov’s help to get her back before it’s too late. Prepare to face off against a horde of foes in this mid-season Story Mission, including a new Disciple variant that will put your squad’s slaying skills to the test.

Seek out and attune the required relics after completing the Story Mission to re-open the Dark Aether Rift for subsequent runs. Complete the objectives within to acquire new powerful schematics.

New Schematics

Dead Wire Detonators: Electrify your blasts for massive damage using the Dead Wire Detonators, adding the Dead Wire Ammo Mod effect to all of your explosive armaments, including Lethals and Launchers. This is sure to come in handy when facing off against the Dark Aether Rift’s new Disciple variant.

Golden Mask Filter: Forget the constant search for a functioning gas mask when approaching strongholds and other areas where gas threatens to suffocate incoming Operators. Attaching the Golden Mask Filter to a gas mask causes its charge to self-regenerate over time. The mask can still break if its charge is fully used up in one go, though the filter will be reapplied to the next one you find.

Sergeant’s Beret: With the undead roaming around, you’ve got enough to worry about before taking Zakhaev’s Mercs into consideration. Don the Sergeant’s Beret to trick the faction into thinking that you’re one of their own. As a bonus, you’ll gain a Merc Bodyguard who fearlessly follows you into the action.

New Warlord: Rainmaker

Challengers of the new Warlord Rainmaker will need to plan their tactics carefully when approaching this artillery and demolitions expert. Find him in his fortress on Rahaa Island in the southeastern Urzikstan Exclusion Zone, where he’s supported by an army that he’s only too willing to expend in pursuit of annihilating Operation Deadbolt.

Expect mortar rounds and RPG fire on approach. Bring reliable transport to breach the fortress combined with long-ranged support to whittle down the enemy forces from afar. Remain cautious after breaching the walls, as the Warlord has set multiple traps to catch unsuspecting Operators. When you get to the Warlord himself, be ready to inflict maximum pain.

CALL OF DUTY: WARZONE OVERVIEW [WZ]

CONTENT SUMMARY

Gear up! Plate up with Heavy Armor, resupply your Plates and Ammo with the Utility Box, and ready up for the return of the Weapon Trade Station: Trade in a weapon, get one back plus some extra loot. A good way to fill your pockets.

Specialist Perk Package: Become a super soldier with this rare item granting your Operator every available Perk!

New Foresight Killstreak: Plan your end game accordingly with the ability to see all future gas circles.

Variable Time of the Day: Experience Rebirth Island in a new way with the chance for variable weather conditions in your deployments.

New Event, Field Upgrade, and More Warzone Features

With occasional aerial bombardments increasing in ferocity across Rebirth Island, expect a change in the weather, a variety of additional items, Events, and more Features as you drop in at Mid-Season:

Boost Your Defenses in the New Heavy Armor Public Event

This Public Event arrives in Season 3 Reloaded. A rare occurrence at Infil, this raises the number of armor plates players can carry, buffing the total number of health points from 150 to 200 for the whole match. For more information, click here.

Gear Up with the new Utility Box Field Upgrade (Rebirth Island)

The Utility Box combines Ammo and Armor Boxes together allowing Operators to resupply everything ranging from bullets to grenades. Purchase the box at Buy Stations or as a piece of ground loot.

Weapon Trade Station (Rebirth Island)

The Weapon Trade Station returns to help fill your pockets. Trade in your weapon for one of a lower rarity plus some extra loot. Rarity is determined by your weapon’s total attachments and is displayed by its color in the weapon info box, from most common to least common as follows: Gray, Green, Blue, Purple, and Orange. The weapon you trade in returns one of two rarity levels lower (or “more common”).

The extra items that drop may include ammo, cash, and equipment (Tacticals, Lethals, Field Upgrades, Killstreaks, Gas Masks). With some luck, trading in a powerful weapon may even reward the Specialist Perk Package, with even better rewards during a Fire Sale!

Perk Package: Specialist (Rebirth Island)

Become the ultimate Operator if you’re lucky enough to come across the rare Specialist Perk Package. With Specialist activated, your Operator will benefit from ALL available Perks . The complete list of abilities include:

  • Perk Slots 1 and 2 (all Perks active): Battle Hardened, Double Time, E.O.D., Focus, Irradiated, Mechanic, Mountaineer, Scavenger, Shrapnel, Sleight of Hand, Spotter, Strong Arm.
  • Perk Slot 3 (all Perks active): Cold-Blooded, Escapist, Payout, Primed, Quick Fix, Resupply, Stalker, Survivor, Tempered, Tracker.
  • Perk Slot 4 (all Perks active): Birdseye, Combat Scout, Flex, Ghost, High Alert, Resolute, Shrouded.

As a force to be reckoned with, this is your surest bet toward victory. Good luck finding it.

New Killstreak — Foresight (Rebirth Island)

Perfect your strategy by seeing what’s coming with Foresight, showing you the location of every future gas circle in the match. Find the new Killstreak as a piece of rare loot. Strategize accordingly to make the most out of the intel you’re given, setting up for the win where you know the gas will end up at the match’s end.

And More on the Way

Along with upcoming playlists like Loaded Resurgence (at Mid-Season Launch) and Rebirth Lockdown (later into the Season), keep an eye out for the new Utility Box Field Upgrade, providing ammo, armor plates, and extra equipment to stock up your Operator for the most vicious battles ahead. And beef up through the Heavy Armor Public Event, adding a permanent extra plate slot to all Armor Plate Carriers for the rest of the match.

Something is happening with the Bunkers on Urzikstan, too. Curious squads who explore these areas are apt to discover the rewards within. That isn’t all that’s coming, either, though some [[REDACTED]] surprises are best left to our players to uncover.

Speciale Warzone – Alcuni leaker sono riusciti a mettere le mani sul KAR98K in anticipo, ed hanno rilasciato in anteprima assoluta le immagini che ci svelano il nuovo gameplay dell’arma.

Come promesso dai devs, notiamo che il nuovo Kar si presenta come un rapidissimo fucile tattico, esattamente come lo ricordavano i grandi appassionati della prima era di Warzone. E’ stato quindi “schivato il proiettile” per il quale il nuovo KAR98K sarebbe stata una “copia” del Kar di Vanguard, fucile da cecchino che non riuscì mai a fare breccia nel cuore dei player.

Nella video anteprima, possiamo apprezzare le indiscusse doti dell’arma, ad iniziare dalla sua velocità di utilizzo… L’arma necessita del caricatore con 5 proiettili, e di una rapidissima ricarica manuale tra un colpo e l’altro. Non dovrebbe essere neanche necessario il “secondo colpo” considerato che questo fucile sarà quasi sicuramente in grado di abbattere i bersagli in one shot.

Andiamo a vedere i primi dettagli dell’arma, ricordandovi che l’arma che verrà aggiunta su Warzone dovrebbe essere pressoché identica a quella svelata qui.

Anteprima KAR98K Warzone/Modern Warfare 3

Ricordiamo che la nuova stagione inizierà nel corso di questa settimana, e più precisamente a partire da Mercoledì 29 Maggio.

L’esperimento di GIIAN dimostra che l’aim assist di Warzone limita lo skill gap

L’esperimento di GIIAN dimostra che l’aim assist di Warzone limita lo skill gap

Profilo di Stak

 WhatsApp

Un video recentemente pubblicato dal creator italiano GIIAN porta nuovi interessanti spunti riguardo la discussione attorno all’aim assist di Warzone, ed al quanto questa incida negativamente sullo skill gap.

Per Skill Gap, lo ricordiamo, si intende la “differenza” data dalle capacità e dalle singole abilità dei player. Se in un gioco viene data importanza allo skill gap, i giocatori più forti riusciranno ad emergere con maggiore “semplicità” rispetto a quelli più scarsi. In un gioco che invece sminuisce lo skill gap, come Warzone, le differenze di abilità tra player saranno meno importanti per determinare la vittoria di uno scontro a fuoco.

E veniamo quindi a GIIAN, che nel corso della giornata di ieri ha pubblicato un video nel quale gioca senza aim assist, al fine di dimostrare che, nonostante quello che si dice, questa funzione non sia poi cosi determinante.

In realtà il video ci mostra una situazione diametralmente opposta, con un GIIAN che smira in praticamente tutti i fight, ed arriva a sudarsi 19 kill in una lobby decisamente facile. Come noto la modalità giocata da GIIAN nel video è sprovvista di SBMM, con delle lobby che sono quindi naturalmente più “clementi” e “facili” per un giocatore esperto e tryharder come lui.

Il video di GIIAN con l’Aim Assist spenta – Warzone 

Forse senza neanche rendersene conto, GIIAN dimostra come senza aim assist sia del tutto impossibilitato a giocare con armi che invece, con aim assist, gioca con grande naturalezza e controllo. Senza aim assist riesce inoltre a mandare a bersaglio al massimo un paio di coltellini, lanciando nel vuoto tutti gli altri.

A livello di statistiche, laddove sui suoi altri video gira spesso tra le 25 e le 30 uccisioni, riesce a raggiungere 19 sudatissime kill, delle quali almeno 3/4 sono cosi clamorose da far sospettare che siano dei veri e propri bot. Sarebbe interessante se GIIAN procedesse con una sessione più lunga, di magari una decina di partite totali, tutte giocate senza AIM ASSIST. In questo modo avremmo certamente un dato più “vero” per decretare quanto effettivamente l’aim assist possa migliorare la precisione di un giocatore.

Perchè l’Aim Assist riduce lo Skill Gap? La “no aim assist challenge” dei super pro di Warzone…

E torniamo quindi al fattore skill gap. Osservando la partita di GIIAN potremmo “speculare” un miglioramento della mira che va dal 20% al 40%. La “precisione” quando si spara in un gioco come Warzone non è un qualcosa che può migliorare all’infinito. E’ al contrario un valore che ha un suo “minimo”, ovvero i giocatori scarsi al punto da colpire qualcuno solo per sbaglio, ed un “massimo”, ovvero i giocatori che riescono a spingersi ad un livello di precisione quasi “perfetto”.

Ipotizzando che l’aim assist assicuri un bonus del 30% alla mira a tutti i giocatori che la sanno usare, questo genererà una situazione nella quale tutti i giocatori con indice di precisione “70” o superiore, saranno precisi allo stesso identico modo. Non vi sarà più una differenza di precisione tra chi è preciso “89/100” e chi è invece preciso “71/100”, e questo perché entrambi, grazie all’aim assist ed a quel “+30% aim”, raggiungeranno una precisione quasi totale nella stragrande maggioranza degli scontri.

Ovvio che l’aim assist non è paragonabile ai cheat, che sono invece in grado di garantire un bonus di precisione del “+100%”, ma questo non significa che non sia ugualmente “negativo” al fine di mettere in risalto il vero talento.

Booya, Diaz e Scump straordinari anche senza Aim Assist… 

Osservando le prove senza aim assist di Booya, di Diaz Biffle o di Scump, tre mostri sacri della scena di Call of Duty, si può notare invece come il loro downgrade a livello di precisione sia pressoché nullo. Nella prova senza aim di Booya, l’ex creator del Faze Clan gioca addirittura con lo Sniper sulla piccola Rebirth, firmando una serie di clamorosi one shot che dimostrano quanto sia un player assolutamente eccezionale.

L’aim assist può tranquillamente continuare ad esistere, esattamente come la conosciamo oggi, ma solo nelle lobby unranked, o comunque non in quelle valide per l’assegnazione del titolo mondiale. L’aim assist andrebbe eliminata invece dalle ranked, e da tutte le partite competitive di Warzone.

Questa non dovrebbe essere considerato come “lo sfogo” o peggio “il pianto di un mkapparo”, quanto più come un’osservazione assolutamente condivisibile e logica da chiunque sia anche solo lontanamente appassionato da qualsivoglia dinamica sportiva. Ed al fine di fugare ogni dubbio: saremmo favorevoli alla rimozione dell’aim assist anche in caso di lobbySOLO PAD“.

Anche perchè la “popolazione di mkappari” (i player con mouse, ndr) neanche esiste più su Warzone, ed ormai da mesi sono in primis i super pro paddari come Biffle, Aydan e tanti altri a lamentarsi dell’eccessiva forza dell’aim assist.

Voi cosa ne pensate community? Pensate che GIIAN abbia dimostrato che senza aim assist non “cambia praticamente nulla“? O al contrario avete intravisto delle grosse “anomalie” nella mira dell’ultimo video del creator?

Confermato il tema Gulf War di Black Ops 6! Torna Adler, e forse anche una missione alle Torri Gemelle (11/9)

Speciale Gulf War – I leaker si sono letteralmente scatenati in queste ultime ore, ed hanno trovato tantissimi “pezzi” del “Black Ops 6 puzzle” che verrà svelato definitivamente il prossimo 9 Giugno.

Per cominciare, pare sia ormai certo che il tema di Black Ops 6 sia la Guerra del Golfo, con numerosi riferimenti alla “Gulf War” pubblicati in questi ultimissimi minuti.

Oltre a questo sembra ormai chiaro che il nuovo BO6 sarà la diretta continuazione di Black Ops Cold War… Compreso il fatto che tornerà il noto Russel Adler.

Personaggio principale nella trama di Black Ops Cold War, Russell Adler si trasforma per un breve periodo in “antagonista” durante la Season 3 di Warzone 1984, dopo essere stato sottoposto al lavaggio del cervello da parte di Stitch, un agente di Perseus (i veri cattivi della trama).

Il leak sul tema “Gulf War” di Black Ops 6

Sempre stando a quanto riportato dai leaker, pare che nei file sia stato trovato qualcosa di ancor più interessante, e che dovrebbe riguardare la presenza dell’Attentato alle Torri Gemelle dell’11 Settembre 2001 sul nuovo titolo.

La notizia è stata data dall’autorevole Bob su X, ed è già rimbalzata sui principali canali d’informazione dedicati a Call of Duty. Continueremo a monitorare la situazione in attesa di eventuali sviluppi, ad iniziare certamente dalla presenza del “11 Settembre 2001” nel prossimo Black Ops 6.

Seguiranno aggiornamenti. Restate sintonizzati con noi per non perdere neanche uno degli update in arrivo.
