Infinity Ward has released a small update for Warzone 2 and DMZ, bringing AI, bug fixes and more.

Warzone 2 introduced Battle Royale’s first Resurgence map, Ashika Island, as part of the Season 2 update. The developers added two new contracts, Data Heist and Search and Seizure, along with the new environment.

Community members beat Data Heist to add AI enemies to Ashika Island. Players must download information from one of the map’s three uplink stations and take down the enemies from the AI ​​Shadow Company to complete a Data Heist contract. Ashika Island is already small enough that some Warzone 2 players claimed AI enemies ruined the pace of the games.

Fortunately for those opposed, Infinity Ward reduced the number of AI enemies during Data Heist contracts, and also made some other significant changes.

The latest Warzone 2 update finally nerfs AI enemies.

On March 1, Infinity Ward announced changes coming to AI enemies in the DMZ, but did not provide any details. Developers shed more light on the situation in the latest patch notes. AI enemies now do “moderately” less damage to Al Mazrah and Ashika Island in the DMZ.

Modern Warfare 2 has already made several UI changes, and the March 2 update makes navigating the Battle Pass easier. The update also fixed an issue where the gas would not damage AI enemies. An annoying bug caused the list of recent players to become unresponsive, which has also been fixed.
