My advice: Stay away from buildings. Rotate as soon as the zone changes. Use the Khastov AR and SMG.

They really seemed to "borrow" a lot of PUBG? I like it. The gunfights are over fast, but then you don't end up with people constantly plating and fights dragging on forever (and just getting 3rd partied in the back).

I like it.

But the audio is worse than WZ1. I can't hear footsteps 99% of the time. Doesn't matter what audio settings I use. Dolby Atmos and DTSX ain't helping either.

Yeah most of the time I can’t hear enemies around me. There is a setting in audio you can set to boost it helped in hearing loot boxes.

DMZ was absolutely scuffed last night. Tried maybe 10 matches and I'd say like 7 had lag or straight up crashed. Also had a moment the game started having insane controller delay so had to restart the console. Never had that happen before so blaming the game.

Yes the game is having a bunch of problems. Ran into laggy matches Sunday and I tried searching for a solo match late Sunday night it would never put me in a match.

Something I noticed playing a bunch over the weekend. Seems like SBMM is not that strong in WZ I’m running into random skill levels it seems and have been doing really well in kills. MP on the other hand playing Shoot House I don’t get. I’m hovering around a 1.0 KD and struggle to stay even and still get put against teams that go way positive. I’m just using it to lvl guns but still annoying I gotta bring my A game every match to get those kills and still go even because the other team are playing like CDL kids.

The more people in a mode the less strict and lower priority SBMM becomes.

Think I fixed the footstep audio somewhat. I switched off Atmos and DTSX and used Windows Sonic (forgot this was an option) on Xbox and that seemed to work with Headphone Bass Boost mix.

That's how most of my 6v6 lobbies are. I'm a .86 K/D overall. It also takes forever to find a 6v6 lobby, even with crossplay on. I was playing in prime time this weekend and still getting pings > 100. In past games, on a Friday night I'd find a game in 10 seconds. It has to be the SBMM spending way longer to find players way better.

And yes, there's always at least one white CDL skinned maniac who's a billion times better than me.

Plus, the horrible perk system and spawns make a map like Shoot House and total snowball. Once someone gets a streak, it is basically over. They are on you before you can shoot it down, then the killstreaks get rolling more and more. If you have one or more teammates who just rush and die, there's nothing you can do without cold blooded and ghost.

I level up my guns in Invasion. If you can tolerate the snipers, it is easier. There's way less SBMM for populations that large. Plus you can find where the AI bots spawn and those kills still count as XP towards your guns (not daily challenges though when it says "kill 3 operators...").

Now i'm back to zero footstep audio again.
Played a bunch last night after getting an update. At times seemed like I could hear better then other times I couldn’t hear an enemy running up till he was right behind me and I had no time to react by then.

Did have some fun and was the first night we got no lag or getting booted during a match.

It’s funny seeing so many top streamers complaining about this game because they can’t do the BS from the last game that kept them alive in a gunfight. The changes they’ve made has leveled the playing field and now it’s more about just aiming, positioning, and you can die quicker at times. Not how fast you can run, tax slide while platting, staying alive to kill the other player instead.

I'm done with Warzone 2. The audio is too broken. No footsteps. Can't always hear glass breaking. Got run over by Quad Bike that had no audio.

Done!!

This always happens with COD, the game has gone to s***. For two weeks, there was NEVER a blowout game. Now, it’s every game. Just lost a match 43-100. THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN. They intentionally do this s***. It happens every year.

Every game I'm in now the other team is getting high level killstreaks. Matchmaking is just broken in this game. I have the lowest score and the highest latency almost every game. I'm up against people getting a chopper gunner in 6v6 TDM or Kill Confirmed matches. That should rarely happen in those modes.

I'm up against guys who are either hacking or are so good that they don't need to. They track me through walls and instant aim me., I'm honestly wondering if I got shadowbanned or something.

I had people kill me in a place they have absolutely no way of knowing I was there and they pinpoint me as soon as they enter the area. They’re already shooting before they should even see me.

There's 100% a massive influx of wallhackers. So many people are shooing just before people come around the corner.

They broke something with the audio because it worked fine in the beta. It was too loud in the beta, but I heard everything I expected to hear.

Now the audio sometimes is just not there. You can sprint in short bursts and make zero sound (not even sure how). I know people can't always have dead silence up. Everyone in my lobbies is sprinting around like crazy and there's almost no sound. It is one thing when everyone is camping and crouch walking, but

I almost want to turn off all footstep audio because it is so off that it is more confusing.

I can't say exactly what it is, but it is just off. The old games always had inconsistencies but this is worse. I haven't played a ton of WZ2 but that feels the same.

The footstep audio in WZ1 was horrible and stayed that way till the end.
