Activision details improvements for Call of Duty's awful user interface coming with Season 2

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 launched with a user interface that was widely panned by players. With the launch of Season 2 on 15th February, Activision hopes that sentiment will change.

The interface used to navigate between Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2.0 and DMZ is a tile interface some have compared to Netflix or Hulu.

Perhaps worse than that is the in-game menu system, which makes it difficult to work out where you are or where you're meant to go to get to what you want.

In a blog post, the company outlined planned changes to the game's UI "to improve overall flow of in-game menus".

Digging into the detail, Activision said Call of Duty's heavily-criticised camo menu will be improved, as will the gunsmith.

Here's the list of changes:

  • Improved navigation and organisation of camo menu
  • More polished social tab, including improved channel swapping and player muting
  • New "My Bundles" screen
  • Quick equip items from Battlepass, My Bundles, and Store
  • Reticle previews in Store and Gunsmith
  • Improved clarity of attachment blocking logic in Gunsmith
  • And many more bug fixes

Activision pointed out it recently added a fix that restored instance speed of recent players in-menu, and status refresh of friends.

Fingers crossed Call of Duty's UI will come out of Season 2 looking and feeling a lot better.
