One of the most popular features in the entire Warzone calendar are the nighttime maps that are typically added around Halloween.

While they offer no new gameplay features, simply exploring a location with a different skybox and lighting makes a world of difference.

So, when it was announced that the new version of Rebirth Island would be released with "variable time of day conditions," players were extremely excited.

Now, they're demanding that the dynamic changes are added to every Warzone map instead of just one in Season 3.

Warzone fans want "variable time of day conditions" on every map

Rebirth is finally back, and competitors can continue their killing sprees on one of the most beloved locations in the series. There a few changes, with one of them being dynamic weather conditions - something a lot fans are the CoDWarzone subreddit want to see on Urzikstan as well.

"Since you are adding the (extremely overdue) time of day cycle for Rebirth Island, please consider doing the same for the rest of the Warzone maps... You saw that Al Mazrah (Night) was a hit but you’ve dropped the ball and didn’t stick with that feature."

This opinion is shared by a lot of users in the thread, who claim the "Halloween Vondel event was such a blast," and it would be good to see the devs experiment more with weather and time of day.

There are those who love the idea but are also concerned about the potential download size of such a change, arguing, "You must want a 700 GB game."

CoD community claim devs will not be "answering nor addressing this"

While there's certainly demand for this feature in Warzone, players are convinced this is something Activision never address or implements.

In their opinion, the devs seem to "deliberately go out of their way to do the opposite of whatever the fan base wants every step of the way," so any hope that weather systems will spread to the other BR maps is at an all-time low.

Alongside a new LMG that the community seems to be calling for every patch, this feels like a feature that might stay limited to Rebirth Island.

Either way, it's great the iconic location is getting spiced up a little with weather changes. Get ready for the Resurgence chaos to begin in Season 3!
