Among the early complaints commonly found with the launch of the Warzone Pacific era, from its heartbeat sensor nerf seemingly not being enough to the major performance issues being encountered by console players, has been the added delay to loadout drops.

While it was intended by Raven Software to perhaps breathe a breath of fresh air to the pacing of the game, many players have found the change to be "wack," including Los Angeles Lakers' star Anthony Davis.

As posted by Warzone content creator FaZe Swagg on Twitter on Wednesday, Davis was seemingly looking forward to enjoying some Warzone in the midst of his busy NBA schedule when he noticed he couldn't buy a custom loadout drop.

"Can't grab loady on new map?" Davis messaged Swagg on Twitter. "Can't pay for it?"

Soon enough, Swagg replied to Davis explaining that the issue was due to Raven and co. changing the system up, invoking his disappointment in the move as well.

For those who have yet to hop into Caldera and experience the revamped Vanguard weapon meta, Raven has made it so that Loadout Drop Markers will only be available for purchase from Buy Stations after the Loadout Drop event occurs in a match.

As such, this has effectively mixed up the longtime routine where players could land at a POI, clear out the area/gather up cash, and get their loadouts for the rest of the game.

According to Raven, this move was made in order to effectively shift the usefulness of Loadout Drops from an "immediate power spike" to a more "tactical choice" in the mid to end game.

For now, it remains to be seen just when Raven would revert the changes, but there are those who are confident that it's not a matter of if, but when.
