Call of Duty Warzone fans complains that some of the attractions prepared for the Halloween Special event are more irritating than scary. I am talking mainly about the fake “blue screen of death.”
As the following material from a Reddit user document, after being eliminated by the ghost – and before returning to the game in the same role – sometimes an image appears on the screen that looks like a fatal Windows error:
We see a special fear indicator in the lower-left corner of the screen during The Haunting of Verdansk event. Certain actions – such as lurking in one spot or taking damage – increase the pool.
As fear increases, the likelihood of effects appearing on the screen, such as bullet holes and scary faces, increases. There are also loud sound effects:
In response to players’ complaints, the developers from Raven studio have already released two quick updates. One reduces the rate of fear growth, so now it’s much harder to get the irritating effects – as long as we don’t camp for hours in one place.
Players argue that the creators should go back to the solution from the previous year when the fear appeared when opening containers. Others assure that the special event is about having fun and not about perfectly fair conditions on the battlefield.
