- Call of Duty’s Season 1 Reloaded update introduced major bugs but hotfixes have been released to address them.
- The update brought exciting new features like a new map and game modes, but also re-introduced a controversial skin.
- The Gaia skin, which previously caused outrage due to its camouflage abilities, has been updated to be completely opaque, but some users are still skeptical about the changes.
Call of Duty added the controversial Gaia skin, also known as the “evil Groot” skin, back to the game. This addition comes alongside Call of Duty‘s substantial, but problematic, Season 1 Reloaded update.
Call of Duty launched its Season 1 Reloaded update on January 17th to the excitement of many fans. However, this excitement was short-lived as major bugs were introduced to Call of Duty following the patch. In the 24 hours since these bugs were introduced, Call of Duty has released multiple hotfixes that claim to have fixed the update’s more major glitches. Although Season 1 Reloaded saw a rocky launch, the update also brought exciting new features like a new Multiplayer map, new Multiplayer modes, Warzone‘s Champions Quest, and more. In addition to this new content, Call of Duty also re-introduced a troublesome skin from last year.
Rumor: Call of Duty Could Be Crossing Over With Warhammer 40K Franchise
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 dataminers unearth files that suggest a significant Warhammer 40K-themed event is coming with intriguing features.
Alongside the Season 1 Reloaded update, Call of Duty‘s controversial Gaia skin was added back to the inventories of those who own it. This time, though, Call of Duty has updated the skin so that it’s no longer semi-transparent. Before, the skin’s legs and torso were partially open, allowing objects behind a Gaia user to aid in their camouflage. But now, the skin is completely opaque, and users are hoping that this will remedy the previous issues. Originally, the Gaia skin was a source of outrage due to its appearance, which allowed it to blend in with the game’s surroundings. Users reported that the issue was particularly frustrating in Warzone or on more drab-colored Multiplayer maps, where the Gaia skin could completely blend in with grass, bushes, or walls of a muted color.
Many Call of Duty fans went so far as to call the skin “invisible”, which led to its eventual removal after almost two months of complaints. Following its recent return, some users expressed their worries that the new changes were too slight, but only time will tell if the skin’s updated appearance is enough to prevent frustration among players.
Another common complaint in Call of Duty is the issue of cheating. Recently, Call of Duty announced a new upgrade to its anti-cheat system, which will now punish keyboard-and-mouse users who use aim assist by automatically closing their game. This change was implemented just recently, so it’s still too early to tell whether this upgrade has had a noticeable impact on cheaters within Call of Duty.
