The Warzone Pacific developers confirmed that they’re working on fixing Season 3 Reloaded’s Radar Jammer after players claimed that the Field Upgrade is overpowered on Rebirth Island.

Warzone Pacific went through a plethora of changes following the arrival of the Season 3 Reloaded update, including the addition of a brand-new Field Upgrade known as The Radar Jammer.

Using this Field Upgrade in battle allows you to scramble an enemy’s Tac Map while preventing Killstreaks from players within a short radius. However, the Radar Jammer is overpowered on Rebirth Island.

Many in the Warzone community reported that the Radar Jammer blocks out a ton of the map when activated on Rebirth Island. This is because the radius and frequency of the Field Upgrade are extremely high.

This isn’t an issue on Caldera, but since Rebirth Island is a relatively smaller location, the Field Upgrade covers up a large section of the map. This is a widespread issue that makes your minimap useless until the Radar Jammer deactivates after 45 seconds.

Other Warzone players reported facing the same issue, as prominent Call of Duty leaker ‘TheGhostOfHope’ called for the devs to tone down the radius of this Field Upgrade on Rebirth Island.

One player responded to Ghost’s tweet by claiming that the Radar Jammer turns the Prison POI on Rebirth Island into a “nightmare,” as players keep spamming the Field Upgrade throughout the match.

This problem can ruin matches if it isn’t patched up soon, and the Warzone developers are aware of that. In response to Ghost’s tweet, the Beenox Twitter account confirmed that this is already under investigation.

The developers tweeted: “Hey there! The team is super aware of that, and we’re working on a fix to improve the player experience. Stay tuned.”

At the time of writing, the Beenox team hasn’t provided more details about when exactly this fix will be implemented in the game. We expect it to arrive in a future update and will be sure to let you know once this issue has been resolved.
