Warzone 2 devs move Killstreak banner

Warzone 2 players called for changes to the banner placement.

Prior to the Warzone 2 Season 3 update, fans of the battle royale had been complaining about visibility issues. Most were particularly annoyed by the way a Killstreak banner in Warzone 2 would obstruct their view in crucial moments.

Following the April 25 update, Warzone 2 Killstreak banners should no longer obstruct players’ reticles. The devs have adjusted the placement of the banner and it will no longer interfere as you look to take down enemies in key gunfights.

Interestingly enough, the same change appeared in the Season 3 patch notes, but whether it’s only being implemented now, or if this consists of another change isn’t quite clear as of yet.
