Streamer Nicholas “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff recently posted a video that talked about what improvements he would like to see in Call of Duty: Warzone.
One of the biggest points that he made in the video was that Warzone needs a brand new map alongside Verdansk.
With Verdansk being the go-to map ever since the game’s release, the streamer mentioned that dropping into the city doesn’t feel as special as before.
Why NICKMERCS wants a new map other than Verdansk in Call of Duty: Warzone
Season 3’s Verdansk ’84 was a significant update for Warzone, for it introduced a retro aesthetic and new locations on the map.
NICKMERCS thought that the revamp was a solid effort from the developers, and even mentioned Downtown Plaza as one of the cooler changes.
Season 4 went for a different approach to the map, implementing the teleporting Red Doors and satellite crash sites as more gameplay-centric additions. Regardless of these recent changes, he believed that it still felt like the same map.
“We need a change from Verdansk,” said NICKMERCS. “I think it was a swing and a miss.”
While there’s still Rebirth Island…
Warzone players have the option to drop into Rebirth Island, a smaller map that popularized the Resurgence game mode.
Rebirth Island allows for more frequent firefights akin to traditional Call of Duty gameplay, but lacks the space for an authentic battle royale experience.
When talking about his hopes for a new map, NICKMERCS wanted something entirely different. “I want an island theme, with beaches, oceans, palm trees, and jungles. That’s what I want,” said the streamer.
