The community of Call of Duty: Warzone Y Call of Duty: Black OpsCold War have lived through a puzzling situation this morning due to a weapon that has appeared and disappeared from the in-game store. It’s about the R1 Shadowhunter, a crossbow that players have been able to buy for 1200 CoD Points (about 10 euros in Spain) but that the company has subsequently removed from the inventory of all those who had acquired it.
The reason? According to the official account of Activision Support and Twitter, there was an error and the crossbow was put into the game store earlier than expected. It has been there for quite a long time, so many players have been able to buy it, but when they have withdrawn it they have not only withdrawn it from sale, but no person who has bought it can use it in the game anymore. Activision, yes, promises to return the money to anyone who has made the disbursement.
An issue with the R1 Shadowhunter weapon appearing earlier than planned in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War has been resolved.
Refunds are planned for players who purchased the bundle while it was live in the Store, and the bundle and in-game challenge will return at a later date.— Activision Support (@ATVIAssist) March 18, 2021
Nevertheless, many users are not happy with that solution either. Some have not bought the R1 Shadowhunter pack with real money, but with points earned by playing games in Call of Duty: Warzone The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. That is why these people complain that the time they have invested in obtaining those CoD Points will not come back no matter how much they return the amount of virtual currency spent on that item.
Is there any chance a push could be made to retain unlock progress for the people that changed plans & set aside time to unlock it? There was no indication that it was an unintentional addition & no communication that we were all wasting our time unlocking it once it was out.— Xclusive Ace (@TheXclusiveAce) March 18, 2021
The crossbow was available for so long that many players were even able to take it to higher levels, in some cases reaching level 30. The downside of these cases is that Activision seems to have already confirmed to some users that the progress achieved with this weapon will not be maintained once it is available againAnytime, so touch start from scratch when you return to the virtual store of the game.
Call of Duty: Warzone Y Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War are available on PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
