Call of Duty Warzone received a major change not documented in the latest patch notes letting players drop weapons in the inventory system.

Warzone, a free-to-play battle royale mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, has quickly become one of the most popular titles in the genre. One simple feature that was missing from the game on launch was the ability to drop weapons in a player's inventory. Players had to find another weapon in the world and swap it out to essentially drop it.

Wednesday's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare patch included an undocumented change in the patch notes. Players can now drop weapons when pulling up the inventory menu.

This feature looks to be a game changer when it comes to Warzone considering good loot is sometimes hard to come by during a game. Especially when it's getting down to the final moments of a game and a player is being respawned from a buy station or the Gulag.

It might change the weapon meta moving forward as well meaning players might be more inclined to select a loadout with an assault rifle and SMG just in case their teammate needs to come back from the grave.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Patch 1.20 is now live on all platforms.
