Warzone Player Suggests a 'Rangefinder' Item Should be Added to the Game
By Nathan Fusco
Battle royales need to have diverse items and weapons to make the game fun and interesting. Since the market is so saturated at the moment, each one needs to bring something different and Warzone tries to have that Call of Duty feeling, while making it feel like a realistic experience.
Most of the items are tactically correct, and have been used in actual combat, so why not add another? Redditor aedanerickson had an idea of creating a long-range scouting weapon that wouldn't reveal your location like a sniper scope.
To balance snipers, Infinity Ward added muzzle flash or lens glare to allow enemy players to easily spot a sniper. This would stop the game from becoming a sniper fest. But it does remove the element of long-range scouting. You can use UAVs, but the ability costs money and the Heartbeat Sensor is short range, so there isn't a reliable long-range item.
That's where the Rangefinder could come in handy. This would allow you to scope around the map, and find enemies at a distance without giving up your position or pay for a UAV. And if the item allowed you to ping your enemies for your allies, it would be an excellent item to have in the game.
