Classic Modern Warfare modes removed after Warzone update and players are furious
The Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update went live on July 27 and it’s had a knock-on effect with Modern Warfare. Fan-favorite game modes have disappeared and players are furious.
Modern Warfare and Warzone are intrinsically linked, with both games sharing one application. While Modern Warfare isn’t receiving any more content updates, Warzone is still going strong with the Season 4 Reloaded update going live on July 27.
Changes in Warzone often have a knock-on effect with Modern Warfare, with the major health increase being brought over on two separate occasions, and the Pacific Season 1 update reportedly breaking the game.
Now, after the Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update, Modern Warfare players have reported that the Domination and Ground War game modes have disappeared entirely.
Reddit user LuizMW_ took to the Modern Warfare subreddit to let the community know that modes no longer appear on the main menu or quickplay filter, and players are furious.
“Good God how do they keep f**king up an almost 3 year old game they barely support,” asked SilentReavus in response to another post about the issue.
While several players mourned Ground War’s removal, players were especially shocked to see Domination was gone.
“Ground war doesn’t bother me. Taking away domination really makes me incredibly mad. I love playing domination,” commented one player. “Call of Duty is not call of duty without Domination, WTF,” continued another.
It appears Domination and Ground War games were causing crashes and other issues, with user slimcargos reporting that every time they tried to get into a Domination game “it would load the map and freeze.”
“I joined a Ground War match before the removal and a lot of people were leaving the game or getting kicked for inactivity,” chimed in the OP. They explained that later, there was a playlist update and the two modes were gone.
It sounds like the modes have been removed to fix the issues that arrived shortly after Season 4 Reloaded so they should be on their way back to the game soon.
