Warzone’s Pacific Caldera map release is just days away, but players are begging Raven to fix an issue with the game’s parachutes that could make dropping in a nightmare.

After months of speculation and hype, we are just days away from saying farewell to Verdansk. The launch of Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 will introduce the new Pacific Caldera map, with players able to explore and battle on the island from December 8.

While players are excited about the major update, fans are extremely concerned about one issue that has plagued Warzone since launch which still hasn’t been fixed: Parachute deployment.

In a post on the official Warzone subreddit, players banded together to complain about the game’s parachute system. When jumping off high areas like buildings or cliffs, the game usually lets players pull their chute to avoid dying from fall damage.

Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, as many Warzone competitors have jumped off ledges expecting to be fine, only to plummet to their demise. With Pacific Caldera appearing to have a heap of high spots like cliffs, mountains, and buildings, this could prove to be a serious issue.

To hammer home the point, Reddit user ‘TTV_xxero_foxx’ included a clip of them jumping off a rock area, only to slam into the stone and eliminate themselves. “For the love of God, fix parachute deployment issues with Caldera,” they wrote. “That map looks like it has a lot of verticality in the middle and I’m sick of dying like this.”

Other Warzone players agreed with this sentiment, with one user admitting they feared Caldera would be even worse than Verdansk because of the “varying landscape,” while another labeled it “super annoying” and said it happens to them when they jumped off buildings.

Most players agree that the issue seems to come from players being too close to buildings when they jump off, which appears to stop parachutes opening.


Whether Raven Software has addressed this issue remains to be seen, but we’ll find out on December 8 when the map releases for everyone. Warzone’s devs have already responded to concerns about the major changes to loadout drops in Pacific Caldera.
