Ashika Island AI Warzone 2

Warzone 2 players will no longer need to contend with AI on Ashika Island as the Season 2 Reloaded update removed AI enemies from the map.

Warzone 2 Season 2 allowed players to rediscover the Resurgence mode through the new Ashika Island map. The map immediately received praise from players who were desperate for a small map since the days of Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep.

While the map was well received by Warzone 2 players, one common gripe with Ashika Island consistently frustrated fans of the battle royale. Players claimed that Warzone 2’s annoying AI was ruining the Ashika Island map.

It seems the devs have been listening to community feedback as AI has been removed from Ashika Island following the Season 2 Reloaded update.
