Almost always, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. The DMZ mode in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 sounded like it was going to be really good. People believed it would essentially be like Infinity Ward’s adaptation of the extraction shooter Escape from Tarkov, and you wouldn’t think you could go wrong with that.
Unfortunately, it was clear that not everyone was impressed as soon as the mode’s first gameplay footage was presented. Some people complained that the game lacked an in-game economy structure and was confused about what they should be aiming for when playing. This dissatisfaction appears to have carried over to the full release because, as Metro writes, some people are now reportedly paying money in order to refrain from playing it.
Everything comes down to the M13B Assault Rifle, which can only be obtained in Modern Warfare II and the Warzone sequel by beating a challenge in the DMZ mode of Warzone 2.0. Just kill the Chemist in the Radiation Zone for the player to get his weapon once it drops (thanks, GameSpot).
Since not everyone wants to spend a lot of time in the DMZ, a number of eBay listings have appeared that players can purchase to pay someone else to go get something for them and hand it over. Some of them currently cost up to £25, which is a lot of money when you realize that anyone may obtain them without paying for them. It’s not only aspiring entrepreneurs looking to make quick cash because some of these postings indicate that numerous other people have already purchased them.
Although it initially seems a little strange, I imagine if someone is truly having trouble with the task they would consider purchasing the rifle if they don’t want to lose out. Future weaponry hopefully won’t be restricted to this mode.
