I am one of those people who prefer to experience most things alone or with at most one other person. Trip. Or the photography. Or sports. Or Warzone 2. In the latter, I actually run solo 90 percent of the time because I can change my running route without prior approval. Because I don’t have to worry about other people’s equipment. Or even their death.

Being alone on the road also has the advantage, at least for now, of not having to listen to other people complain about the game’s problems. It just wears you out even more than the lag and bugs already do.

Petra only occasionally plays shooters, Call of Duty hasn’t really touched them in several years. She was all the more amazed that she installed the first Warzone on a whim a few months ago, loved it instantly, and played almost every night for a few weeks. That’s why she was so looking forward to Modern Warfare 2 – whose campaign she still hasn’t touched.

But now comes a sentence that you may need to digest first: I like Warzone 2. Because behind all the bugs, bugs and stupid design choices that are still in it now, I can really feel the great gaming experience. How unnervingly exciting to run up the mountain to the observatory. Always afraid that a sniper is lurking somewhere.

Suits you if…

  • … you need space to outsmart opponents.
  • … you don’t mind lazing around.
  • … you have nerves of steel.

Doesn’t suit you if…

  • … you generally don’t like the game mode.
  • … sudden deaths drive you crazy.
  • … you always want to play with your guns.

How wonderful it is to jump on the train with a parachute to blast away the player who was a second ahead of me with a quickly caught SMG. What a fantastic feeling to sneak into the final battles right next to the gas cloud. And then win! The basic thrill is underlined by the fantastic weapon handling and buttery smooth movement. You have to experience it yourself to know how good it all is.

Warzone 2: The spectacular release trailer of the much-discussed Battle Royale hype.

The mood in the user reviews on Steam and/or Metacritic looks different, it’s going to the basement. I can understand that, it’s the mix of the usual trolls and people like me who were really and genuinely looking forward to the battle royale, but are now genuinely disappointed and need to vent their frustration; very often after a fantastic lap up to point X.

Point x perhaps marked one of many complete crashes. Or a stupid death from not being able to pick up a gun. And did anyone mention that one ladder you can only climb halfway because: Bug? Gosh, Infinity Ward, like this has never happened to anyone in all the QA sessions and internal testing!
