Call of Duty: Warzone player Garry 2206 was running around the corner to sign a contract at a sawmill and was dazzled by the bright lights lining the building in front of him. He could hardly see the enemy with his peripherals. He was shot after a while.
“Christmas came early in the sawmill,” they wrote to Reddit after they were killed. The lights were actually caused by a rendering bug and not related to the old Centnick, but they made players imagine what Verdansk would look like during the holidays.
Infinity Ward and Raven Software all feature jump scare, special skins, and the nighttime mode of Warzone’s Halloween event, The Haunting of Verdansk. Players want something similar to December. They want Santa to have a new limited-time mode, special elf cosmetics, and even Candy Cane’s melee weapons.
“I wish it had a heavy snowfall during Christmas time,” said RedditorOneTokeOverTheLine. “Throw a holiday light at the building and build a snowman. If you win, you should ride Santa’s sleigh instead of Blackhawk.”
Call of Duty: There are no leaks or announcements related to the holiday events taking place in Warzone, but they were in previous Call of Duty games. Infinity Ward has released a special reskin for Crash Maps in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (both the original game and the 2019 remaster). This is called Winter Crash. There were Christmas illuminations, trees, and special holiday-themed airstrikes.
This is the first holiday season of Warzone’s existence, and Activision, Raven Software, and Treyarch are already full with the integration of Battle Royale and Black Ops Cold War in December. Players want to get something other than cosmetics to celebrate the New Year at Verdansk.
“It would be fun to have a snowmobile on the map, a snowmobile instead of an ATV, Christmas lights and ornaments in and on the house, and even a gun that shoots snowballs,” said Redditor EverythingisTaken109. “Of course, there is also Santa’s skin.”
Many players want to add lights and gifts throughout the map to return to the night mode introduced by the Haunting of Verdansk. Fortnite, Apex Legends, and PUBG have all held or are currently hosting holiday events. I hope Warzone will follow suit this year.
