Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone’s recent patch notably took the action of doing away with Bounty contracts in favor of a new Most Wanted contract which had players marking themselves to survive a certain amount of time instead of hunting a random squad down. Unfortunately, players weren’t having it at all, so Infinity Ward has reverted the change, taking out Most Wanted contracts and putting Bounties back in.
Infinity Ward put out a hotfix for Call of Duty Warzone, announced on the Infinity Ward blog on April 30, 2020. The topline of the April 30 hotfix patch reverts the topline change in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare version 1.20 patch. In that patch, Bounty contracts were removed in favor of Most Wanted contracts. The major difference between the two was that were Bounties pushed players to go out and hunt other squads for cash and prizes, Most Wanted contracts required you to voluntarily mark yourself as a target for other squads and survive for a certain amount of time. Players immediately took offense at the removal of one for the other that has forced Infinity Ward to pull Most Wanted and put Bounty contracts back in.

The gripe players have posited about the switch was that Bounties encouraged players to move out of comfort and engage with other squads where Most Wanted contracts would seemingly reward players for hunkering down and playing it safe. It’s a bit of an odd thought that both contracts can’t be in the game, but it is what it is.
There are other items on the hotfix patch that correct a few other issues as well, so be sure to check out the patch notes. Did the Call of Duty: Warzone Most Wanted contracts bother you even if Bounties were put aside for them? Would you rather have one or both? Let us know in the Shacknews Chatty comment section below.
