The Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update arrived this week, and some players are upset because the update appears to have erased their customized settings.
Warzone players are reporting their settings being wiped in droves, forcing them to customize all their settings again. Affected settings reportedly include everything from look sensitivity to visuals and field of view settings, all reset to their default options.
In a first-person shooter like Warzone, those settings can be crucial factors in a player's performance. Familiarity with one's mouse sensitivity is a major determinant of shooting accuracy, and visual settings are often carefully selected to strike the perfect balance between performance and graphical quality.
The reset has also forced some players to download all of Warzone's high-resolution texture packs a second time, which can take a long time.
The bug appears to affect PlayStation users more than others on PC. One player has reported a workaround to restore the lost settings.
"Just stick with the default settings until you get into the playlist, then go into settings," wrote Warzone subreddit user u/zhenface. "It is still there, just not at the start up for some reason."
Activision and the developers behind Warzone have yet to acknowledge the bug.
