Earlier this week, Call of Duty: Warzone received an update that introduced a brand new type of contract into the game – Most Wanted contracts. Most Wanted contracts allowed you to take out a bounty on yourself for some high-risk, high-reward gameplay. It’s now just a couple of days later, and the contracts have been removed from the game.
The patch notes for the April 30 update confirm the following: “Removing Most Wanted contracts from Warzone and adding Bounty Contracts back.”
It’s likely the swap-out comes from the loss of the beloved Bounty Contracts, which players sorely missed during its brief removal from the game. Many Warzone gamers were left pretty annoyed to find the Bounty Contracts gone, and they’ve now been welcomed back with open arm.
Activision described the now-removed Most Wanted contracts as follows: “Make yourself a Bounty Target for all teams in Verdansk when you activate this Contract and survive to get the ultimate reward – a redeployment for all of your fallen teammates. Learn some tips to master this Contract and what it means to be Most Wanted this week on the Games Blog. Pick up this Contract in a game of Battle Royale (Solos, Trios, or Quads) or Plunder Trios this week!”
Whether you enjoyed Most Wanted contracts or not, it’s nice to see developer Infinity Ward is taking fan feedback this seriously!
Other changes brought about by the April 30 patch include an extended timer in 3v3 Cranked Gunfight (from 10 seconds to 15), adjustments to the out of bounds timer in Infected, and a couple of pretty standard bug fixes (including the one which sometimes sees players get stuck in the infil).
Are you happy to see the return of Bounty Contracts in Call of Duty: Warzone, or will you miss the Most Wanted addition?
