Infinity Ward and Raven Software have released another round of MW2 and Warzone patch notes following the launch of Season 6. Though most of the changes introduced mainly revolve around various bug fixes, one important inclusion involves the removal of one specific Field Upgrade that battle royale players have often favored: Redeploy Flares.

Following the MW2 and Warzone Season 6 release date, the developers have now booted Redeploy Flares from the battle royale for the time being because of the “general lack of competitive counter strategies” that teams could employ towards it during the end game. Since these valuable flares enable you to bring back a random squad member at any point, most ranked squads would end up hoarding it during the early portion of a match only to end up abusing it towards the latter part.

Naturally, this prompted plenty of complaints from players as teams that could collect Redploy Flares for each member essentially had a 6v3 advantage during stand-offs. This rang especially true during endgame scenarios where staying alive is of the utmost importance. Unsurprisingly, this Field Upgrade’s removal has already been greeted with plenty of positive reactions on various social media sites.

As mentioned previously, though, this isn’t the only change included with this patch, as there are plenty of other bug fixes that you may be interested in as well. If you want to know what they are, keep reading to find out.
