Warzone 2 devs finally nerf DMZ AI across Ashika Island & Al Mazrah

Warzone 2 DMZ AI Ashika Island

Warzone 2 DMZ AI on both Al Mazrah and the new Ashika Island received a nerf on March 1, as the devs respond to numerous player complaints concerning impossible AI.

Warzone 2 Season 2 delivered plenty of new content on February 15 including a brand-new Resurgence map called Ashika Island and several new weapons.

Players quickly set out to discover Ashika Island and its secrets. With Path of the Ronin challenges to complete and new public events like Data Heists, there’s no shortage of new experiences.

The new map also gave DMZ players a new territory to explore. Following Season 2, fans of DMZ could venture to Al Mazrah and Ashika Island. Despite the new variety in battlegrounds, one major issue kept popping up after the Season 2 update.

According to players, DMZ AI on both maps proved way too difficult and made the mode unplayable. This was surprising to Warzone 2 players seeing as the Season 2 update “adjusted [the] lethality of AI across Al Mazrah including the number of AI spawning, and the accuracy of AI at range.”

Ultimately, players didn’t feel the full effects of this Season 2 change to DMZ AI and demanded more nerfs to reduce their damage output.
