The third Season of Call of Duty: Warzone is now underway, and with new weekly updates come new changes. One of the most controversial changes so far has been the removal of Trios mode, which left more than just a bitter taste in players’ mouths.
Following the Season Three update, Quads mode was added into Warzone, but the new addition saw Trios mode being removed from play (in its traditional form, at least).
Trios was then added back in the mix following player outcry, but once again, it’s disappeared this week. It’s been replaced with a new game mode in which your only choice of weapons are shotguns and sniper rifles, entitled Scopes and Scatter Gun Trios. The new Limited Time Mode definitely has the potential to be a lot of fun, but is it worth losing Trios for?
According to many, many players – no. Thankfully, developer Infinity Ward is pretty darn good at taking on feedback. The company has now officially confirmed that Trios will be returning immediately.
The company tweeted: “We hear you loud and clear! We’ll be doing a playlist update tomorrow night, Thursday, April 16th at 11PM PST that brings BR Trios back to #Warzone.”
The news has been met with relief from players who really missed the now-traditional Trios mode. When Trios was first removed, gamers were quick to criticise the move.
One user said: “yo @CallofDuty @InfinityWard @JoeCecot , cycling out Trios for a gimmicky shotgun / sniper only BR mode is a BAD move for Warzone, please reverse. There should be core Solo, Duo, and Trio playlists that NEVER leave rotation.”
Another tweeted: “#Warzone is a fantastic game, but it’s fair to say the people who come up with these update ideas dont have a clue! Absolutely nobody wants a sniper/shotgun mode only which also resulted in the removal of trios. Improved servers, anti cheat software and duos is what we need.”
All’s well that ends well, at least!
