I've got a reasonable PC but if i want to change my FOV even a little bit it tanks my FPS to below what i'd consider playable on Modern Warfare.

 

PC default FOV for MW is 80, 65 on console. So even not upping it your PC has a large advantage.

Well I've got the game on PC, PS4 and Xbox and never noticed the difference, so you sound like you're looking for excuses as to why timmy just shat on you, that's just my opinion though.

 

I'm hardly likely to be looking for excuses in a game mode I've not played yet. Anyway, if you can't notice the difference in FOV between 65 and 80, there's not much point in debating the advantages of it with you.

 

All I want is a level playing field. That's hardly too much to ask.

The game already filters players based on input device.

 

You can't switch input mid game either.

Cod doesn’t ? Unless they patched it in . If you  enable cross play you can’t filter out certain control types .

I’m not going anywhere near it if this is enforced cross play . Unless you can filter out m&k players . 

 

While not relevant to this game, Apex doesn't have cross play but let's PC players use m&k or pads. Surprisingly, there are pro level players who use controllers... It's completely off topic, but this is a great clip of a long time Halo pro in a top level ranked game: https://clips.twitch.tv/TentativeAmericanAubergineCopyThis

It has, and it's done it since day 1, I own the game on 3 platforms.

 

No it hasn’t . You can filter on or off crossplay but not control type, certainly on PS4 at least.  Like I say , that may have been fixed in a patch subsequently, but not noticed the option  . Not sure of the relevance of the number of platforms you own it on , but well done !

It does it by default, you cant change to allow m&kb in controller lobbies or vice versa, it's just how it does it.

It doesn't though, cos I have had many a game with M&K players with cross play turned on (typically in ground war). I've even had the odd game with M&K players on PS4 only and cross play disabled, but thats far less common.

 

So if it enforces cross play, then it will allow M&K, and fuck that noise.

Pete you're wrong, and the relevance to owning it on all platforms is because I've played across all of them with different inputs and it doesnt let you switch in game and it locks the lobbies to the input you are set to use (on PC you get the option of M&Kb or Controller which then locks when you queue to find a game).

... Are you saying I haven't played with/against players that have a picture of a mouse next to their name? Cos.. like.. I definitely have, on multiple occasions.

It's not completely impossible, because the matchmaking algorithm will go through multiple scenarios until it gets to a point where it will match with anything it can get, but you'd have to be waiting some time for it to happen and they cant switch input mid game like you can on fortnite.

Sure go for it, but you have a problem with your internet if it's getting to the end of the matchmaking algorithm and cant put you in lobbies with the same input device as that's it's default before it even takes ping into consideration.

Only if you have cross play turned off. When it is on, tough shit you play who you play. Crossplay is forced on for Ground War, so you have no choice. If you want to play that game mode you are forced to play with Mouse & KB gamers on console & PC.

Not sure if this was posted but here is the info from yesterday:

 

Introducing a Game-Changing FREE-TO-PLAY Experience - Call of Duty®: Warzone

A New Massive Combat Experience with up to 150 Players from the World of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® is Free-to-Play for Everyone

Welcome to Warzone – a massive new combat experience where up to 150 players take the role of a veteran Tier 1 Operator and drop in to the dense and sprawling world of Verdansk. Warzone is a game-changer packed with non-stop and endless action that’s free-to-play and free-for-everyone!

Warzone will be live tomorrow, March 10 at 8AM PDT as a one-time early access for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® owners, and launch a few hours later around 12PM PDT, free for everyone!

You do not need to own the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to download, play and enjoy Warzone. Call of Duty: Warzone is free for everyone.

Want to be ready to hit the ground running on this massive Call of Duty® experience? Read on to get the details on Warzone. 

 

The World of Warzone: Battle Royale and Plunder

At launch, players can squad up in trios with their friends on Playstation® 4, Battle.net for PC, or Xbox One across two game modes: Battle Royale and Plunder.

In Battle Royale, fight to be the last squad standing while escaping the deadly gas in the swiftly closing circle with up to 150 players.

In Plunder, the race is on to collect the most in-match Cash by looting across the map, taking down enemies to steal their Cash, and completing in-match Contracts. 

Warzone takes place in Verdansk, an expansive city with multiple named zones and well over 300 points of interest. Each zone features distinct landmarks like the Gorengard Lumber Yard or the Gora Dam; the zones take place across different environment types like cities and rural areas for unique engagements. Change up your drop location in each match to get a better lay of the land and take advantage of what Verdansk has to offer.

Need to escape the gas in the closing circle or get to another zone? Take a vehicle. 

 

The Vehicles of Warzone 

If you need to get somewhere fast in Warzone, the best method is a vehicle. There are five vehicles all with varying levels of protection, speed, seating, and off-roading capability. Each vehicle has a health meter and when it reaches zero, the vehicle explodes and flames out. Needlessly to say, if the health of your vehicle is depleting, bail out before the impending explosion. 

Here’s an overview of the five vehicle types that are populated throughout the world in Warzone:

·     ATV – two seater, provides minimal protection, good at offroading, fast.

·     Tactical Rover – four seater, provides minimal protection, solidly fast, solid at off-roading.

·     SUV – four seater, provides good protection, medium speed, not ideal for off-roading.

·     Cargo Truck – holds the squad plus equipment, excellent protection, not for off-roading, slowest.

·     Helicopter – four seater, decent coverage, flies.

 

The Mechanics of the Warzone 

Warzone features some unique mechanics that keep each match interesting and give you plenty of strategies to try for a new experience every time you drop in. 

Here’s a list of some of the new and game-changing mechanics players will find in a Warzone match:

The Gulag (only in Battle Royale)

Upon your first elimination, you will be taken as a “Prisoner of Warzone” and thrown into the Gulag. There you will await your fate and watch other prisoners fight to the death. When your turn is up, you’ll enter the Gulag and face-off against a single opponent in a 1v1 to earn the ultimate reward - redeployment. Win in the Gulag and earn redeployment back into Verdansk. Lose and hope that your squad completes Contracts and earns enough in-match Cash to redploy you. 

 

Contracts

Contracts are objective oriented tasks players can find and activate across Verdansk. A squad can activate one Contract at a time and completing it rewards you in-match Cash and other loot items. Multiple types of Contracts exist including Scavenger Contracts where you have to find and open a series of Supply Boxes and Recon Contacts where you must secure one location, similar to Call of Duty’s Domination mode. In addition to in-match Cash, Contracts can give you special rewards like the ability to see the next circle collapse location before it starts to close. 

 

Buy Stations

In Battle Royale where collecting in-match Cash isn’t the objective, Cash can be used to procur beneficial items at Buy Stations. Denoted on the Tac-Map with a shopping cart icon, head to a Buy Station to spend your in-match Cash. For varying prices, you can purchase Killstreaks, Redeploy Tokens to bring back fallen teammates, Self-Revive Kits, and more.

In Plunder, Buy Stations hold all of these items to help you gain an advantage over other teams, plus a unique game mode item – the Cash Deposit Balloon. Want to securely deposit your in-match Cash, away from the threat of enemy teams trying to kill and steal? Get a Cash Deposit Ballon, a portable Field Upgrade, that allows you to deposit Cash, from anywhere. 

 

Seamless Play

Call of Duty: Warzone shares Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s crossplay and unified progression. For players that already own the full version of Modern Warfare, all content already earned including Battle Pass items, Operators, weapons and customization items will carry over to Warzone, and all progression earned in Warzone will counts toward overall Modern Warfare progression. For players who do not own the full version of Modern Warfare, all progress and items they’ve earned in Warzone will be rewarded across Multiplayer and Special Ops in Modern Warfare, should they ever choose to purchase it. 

There are no level caps in Warzone. Jump in.
