I’ve recently come to the realization that there has been a pattern with the recent Call of Duty games. Since Black Ops 3, every CoD development team seems to always make the same promise about their supply drop system, “It will be cosmetic only.”. A lot of people will tell me this is no surprising news coming from Call of Duty, however, we still buy it and believe every word. We keep hoping that they’re telling the truth. We keep hoping that they’ll release a fair and cosmetic only supply drop system. Yet the same thing happens every year. First few months are cosmetic only. After that, three new guns come out every other month. Usually a new assault rifle, shotgun, and pistol.
While (in my opinion) Infinite Warfare did a slightly better job at this, both Black Ops 3 and Modern Warfare Remastered made this a money whoring powerhouse. BO3 probably being the worst of the bunch. Making the RNG system damn near impossible to get a single gun from a supply drop. They don’t even try to hide the fact that they’re solely doing this for money and nothing more. Now, Sledgehammer is saying that their supply drops will be “cosmetic only”, and people are believing every word. I’m not saying I’ll be able to change your mind on buying future Call of Duty’s, I’m only saying don’t trust their words if they’ve lied before.
Black Ops 3 Supply Drops
This was the most infamous title when it came down to supply drops. Mostly do to their extremely low drop rate on weapons. If you go look on YouTube and view certain channels such as M3RKMUS1C and Ali-A, will show just how expensive it can get when trying to grind supply drops for certain guns. You can spend anywhere from $20 – $200 before you finally get the gun you want, and that’s if you’re lucky. Ali-A for example made several videos showing just how pricey things can get when trying to get these guns, and it can sometimes start entering the $500+ range.
Modern Warfare Remastered Supply Drops
Probably the most infamous of the bunch are MWR’s supply drop system. Raven kept promising “cosmetic only” supply drops, but we all knew what was coming. A couple months later, and we get our new assault rifle, shotgun, and pistol as if practically right on cue. Not only were these weapons rather difficult to unlock, but their appearance made several fans of the remastered game no longer consider it remastered. Instead we all just saw it as another empty shell for Activision to fill up with their micro-transaction bullshit. As if the overpriced Variety Map-Pack wasn’t enough. This game went from a fantastic remake of the original COD4, to another endless money machine for Activision, and it’s a damn shame.
Call of Duty WW2 Supply Drop Prediction
We all know what’s coming no matter how in denial we are. We need to accept the fact that what happened to the last Call of Duty games will indeed happen to this one, and we should not stand for it. We’re better than mindless sheep buying into everything Sledgehammer or Activision says. If we want cosmetic only supply drops, we need to demand it! We need to stand up to Activision’s greedy practices and tell them we aren’t gonna take it anymore. We love this franchise and we want it to thrive and grow. Not become a blood sucking money machine.
We all know they want to add weapons and other immersion breaking items to those supply drops after two months. They’ve done it before and they’ll do it again. We can’t let them. You want this game to succeed? Then teach Sledgehammer and Activision on how to properly respect it.
