It was the skin ‘Rook’ (Rook) for the operator Rozlin “Roze” Helms. This covers the character completely in black. At the time it was said that this could be an unfair advantage when play ing, but it became a real scandal in recent days.
The weekend was held a tournament of Call of Duty: Warzone in the popular Twitch Rivals format for a prize of $ 250,000 (almost 900 million Colombian pesos). This turned out to be quite scandalous. Besides the accusations of cheating, teams formed only by Roze using the ‘Rook’ skin participated.
Over the next few days, Roze’s use of Rook’s skin skyrocketed in-game. For many, it is clear that the color scheme, completely black, gives advantages to those who use it. It is much more difficult to see the character in the many dark areas of the game.
Social networks are also filling with videos of Call of Duty: Warzone that supposedly demonstrate the unfair advantage that “Roze Rook” have over others.
The player communities of Call of Duty: Warzone On Reddit and Twitter they are requesting that Roze’s Rook skin be removed or made more visible in dark areas. Since this was part of a paid Battle Pass, many are accusing the creators of the game of using “pay-to-win” strategies.
Activision and Infinity Ward have been silent about it, at least for now.
