In adding a new bounty, Call of Duty: Warzone removed others, and players are mad

You’re Most Wanted or you’re nothing

On April 29, Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare got significant updates. In Modern Warfare, players got a new way to customize their weapons, and Warzone players saw some playlist changes. The major Warzone change came with the new Most Wanted bounty. But instead of just adding a new bounty, Infinity Ward removed others.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s contract system lets you give yourself optional objectives for money and loot. Instead of just wandering around the map until you can find some enemies, these contracts offer rewards for putting your team in dangerous places. The non-combat contracts are still in the game, but bounties on other players died with the latest update.

The new Most Wanted bounty shows all enemies on the map in your general area, and successfully surviving the bounty revives all of your dead teammates. As an additional bounty, Most Wanted could have been a cool addition to the battle royale, but the removal of existing content has disappointed fans.

Reddit user RazerFeed posted a meme on the Warzone subreddit — one of the subreddit’s top posts, with nearly 10 thousand upvotes — complaining about Infinity Ward removing old bounties and replacing them with the new one. “We want both,” commented user Mlzgamer, the top comment on the post. The rest of the comments are players complaining about the replacing of content instead of adding on top of what they already had.

But with Warzone updating small features every week, it’s possible Most Wanted bounties could evolve in only a few more days. But until then, Most Wanted are your only options when it comes to bounty contracts.
