CoD: Warzone October 8 Patch Notes Fixes Menu Freezing, Iron Trials ’84 Gets Changes

Posted on

Call of Duty Season 6 arrived to Warzone on October 7, bringing a new battle pass of content and major map changes, but the October 8 patch notes bring fixes for the game’s frustrating issues, which include menu freezing and challenges that weren’t tracking. Players can also expect big changes for the new quad version of Warzone’s Iron Trials ’84 mode.

Developer Raven Software noted several menu freezing issues have been addressed in Warzone, but most notably is the operator menu lag that caused players to freeze when trying to view or select an operator. The update also corrected several challenges that weren’t tracking properly, including the “Moonshot” challenge and the unlock challenge for the Bladed Axe melee weapon.

Changes have also been made to Warzone’s challenging Iron Trials ’84 mode. Previously, Iron Trials ’84 was played in a duos playlist, but Raven Software tweaked the mode for the new addition of quads. The Specialist Token has been removed from the Buy Station and can no longer be purchased, but now the token drops on death. Player health regeneration speed has been increased, and the medical syringe equipment now heals 25% faster. Tac Rover vehicles have also been added to the mode. All of the changes in the patch notes are exclusive to the quads version of Iron Trials ’84.

Additionally, Modern Warfare’s RAAL MG light machine gun is back. The weapon briefly disappeared with Season 6’s arrival, but the new update properly adds the gun back to Warzone’s arsenal.

The complete patch notes for October 8 can be found below, as shared by Raven Software.

In other Warzone news, Scream’s Ghostface has been confirmed as an operator skin for the Haunting seasonal event. Vanguard weapons have also started appearing in the menus, but the weapons remain locked.

All of this Call of Duty content continues as Activision Blizzard faces a lawsuit from the state of California over alleged harassment and discrimination against women.
