In a recent development, the controversial Gaia skin, also known as the “evil Groot” skin, made a return to Call of Duty Warzone this week, accompanied by adjustments intended to address previous concerns. Despite the attempts to rectify the situation, Call of Duty Warzone players have maintained a sense of dissatisfaction and discomfort with the changes made to the skin.
The Groot skin, introduced in the game in September, sparked controversy because of its ability to seamlessly merge with the game environment. Notably, a viral Call of Duty gameplay clip showcased an ambush by an opponent utilizing the Groot skin to blend in effectively. Many players argue that the Groot skin provides an unfair advantage, particularly for those who adopt a camping strategy in the Warzone. The skin’s limited visibility in certain environments creates challenges for opponents trying to locate and engage players utilizing it. Furthermore, players contend that targeting and hitting opponents using the Groot skin is more challenging.

Due to widespread criticism, the Groot skin was eventually removed from the game and underwent significant adjustments in response to the negative feedback. The Groot skin made its return with the Season 1 Reloaded update on January 17th, and following that, a post on the Warzone subreddit asked for opinions on the change. Overall, users were not pleased with the skin’s appearance. While acknowledging technical improvements, players expressed dissatisfaction, stating that the Groot skin remains visually unappealing. For instance, a user commented, ‘You can definitely see her better now. The skin remains ugly,’ highlighting the persistent aesthetic issues. Another player echoed this sentiment by stating, ‘Not pay to win anymore, still ugly,’ underscoring that while the skin may no longer confer advantages, its visual appeal remained a point of contention.
It’s noteworthy to mention that the Call of Duty Warzone Season 1 Reloaded patch faced significant criticism from the player base, even though it introduced a plethora of new content to the game. This was primarily due to multiple game-breaking bugs that caused considerable frustration among players. One of the more widespread issues was an infinite looping bug on the main menu, preventing users from playing the game.
However, Call of Duty: Warzone released a set of patches that addressed some of the issues introduced with the Season 1 Reloaded update overnight. The update fixed glitches involving menu looping, players unable to equip their loadouts from supply drops, HRM-9 attachments not unlocking, and killstreak notifications not appearing correctly. Additionally, recently, Call of Duty Warzone‘s Raven Software explained why the Season 1 Reloaded patch was so disastrous.
