Modern Warzone 3 players have been left sorely disappointed after the new Warzone x Walking Dead crossover, which stars iconic characters from the ongoing zombie series like Rick Grimes and Michonne, was unveiled today.
Camos are and always have been a controversial topic in MW3. While many have long been unconvinced by the collectibles, others praised Sledgehammer for introducing one of the most robust camo grinds in CoD history, with multiple Mastery paths to complete. However, criticism has bubbled to the surface recently, with many slamming the ‘lame’ and ‘utterly disgusting’ skin many players earned for finishing eight weeks of challenges in season one; and now the Walking Dead event camo has drawn similar ire in its early days.
On Jan. 31, CoD leaker CODWarfareForum gave fans an early unauthorized look at the planned camo for the Walking Dead crossover. It wasn’t love at first sight. Instead of using actual barbed wire, the skin paints a barbed wire design onto the weapon, and some community members argued the devs missed a golden opportunity to do something special.
“They can make [reactive] blueprints… but for events, they make them boring as hell. Why is it just a brown color with barbed wire that looks pasted on it,” one player responded. Other fans expressed their frustrations, with several claiming the devs put all of the good skins behind a paywall in the store while events don’t get nearly the same amount of attention. “A lot of these camos started off pretty good, but damn this looks like doo-doo,” a second CoD player added to the backlash.
Before people get too riled up, it is worth mentioning this is still a leak, meaning it may not be the final product that hits digital shelves. But, if this does end up being the Walking Dead event camo, then we already know MW3 fans won’t be happy.
