Warzone’s developers introduced a major change to how players access their custom loadouts at the start of Season 4. Following a ton of backlash, Raven have confirmed they’re introducing a new feature to suit everyone.

Before June’s Warzone Pacific Season 4, Warzone’s Loadout Drop cursor would always hover over the last picked option. This allowed players to pick their preferred loadout while in the pre-game lobby, regardless of its position in the list.

Raven Software said many players found this too confusing, so made it so that the cursor would always hover over the first option. But, this went against many players’ muscle memory, and they called for change. Raven have heard the complaints and will be introducing more options down the line.

In a call with content creators ahead of Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, Raven Software confirmed that they’ll give players the choice between the new loadout selection system and the old one. When implemented, players will pick whether they want their cursor to start at the top or on their last selected option.

Raven don’t have an exact date for when we can expect the loadout selection change to come in but suggested that it could come in around Season 5.

Once the change comes in, players will have a lot more choice in how they arrange their loadouts. Their go-to doesn’t have to be at the top of the list anymore, but players who prefer the simplicity of it always being at the top will have that option too.

In the meantime, there are plenty of exciting changes in Season 4 Reloaded. The brand-new Vargo-S Assault Rifle has arrived alongside the Rebirth of the Dead mode, Titanium Trials, and Terminator skins. Plus, Warzone players can unlock new camos for completing Titanium Trials challenges.
