Warzone players call for change to major Rebirth Island spawn feature

Warzone players are asking the developers to change a feature of Rebirth Island’s spawning to ensure a more balanced experience.

Rebirth Island’s introduction into Warzone brought a fresh, fast-paced way to play the battle royale, which many actually enjoy more than the gameplay on Verdansk.

As players can respawn teammates by staying alive and getting eliminations, weaponry is essential, as is landing in a good spot. With that being said, some players have called for the devs to change the spawn loot to make the experience more balanced.

In Rebirth Island, players drop in on a small reconstruction of Alcatraz Island, which means the action is at all corners, so players must be prepared. Upon landing, players will receive a random starting pistol, which could be the 1911, Diamatti, or even a Renetti.

Some players have been expressing their discomfort with this feature on Reddit, explaining how unbalanced it is for players to fight against others off spawn who may have a much better starting pistol.

As most experienced Warzone players know, the starting pistols aren’t the best weapons in the game.

However, some of them, like the Renetti and the Diamatti, can actually be very powerful, especially when compared to the other pistols in the game.

This is an issue players have currently have and have had since Rebirth Island was introduced. Reddit user PillowcaseDestroyer made a post on the issue, which has since caught some attention, with many agreeing with the complaints.

The player says, “I made a post about this before, but it is seriously illogical for some teams to have the renetti at spawn, others 1911. The Renetti is superior to any other spawn pistol. Spawn pistols should always always be the same across all players in the lobby.”

This was met by comments of agreement, with another user also stating, “I have been rambling about this to my team endlessly since day 1 of Rebirth. I don’t mind there being different starter pistols, but it shouldn’t be different pistols in the same games. It’s alright if one game, everyone starts with X16s, next game is Renettis then M19s and so on.”

This would undoubtedly make Rebirth Island’s spawn fights much more balanced, as no one is put at an advantage if everyone in the lobby has the same starting pistol, even if it rotates for different lobbies.

Although it may seem like a fairly minor issue, hopefully, the devs can catch onto this and make the Rebirth Island experience more enjoyable. For more, check out our recent article on when Call of Duty: Vanguard will be revealed.
