Warzone devs reveal reason behind weapon codenames in patch notes

Call of Duty: Warzone's use of baffling weapon codenames in the patch notes has drawn the ire of fans for years.

But, as it turns out, there's a perfectly logical explanation behind this oddity.

Two developers responded to a fan that called them out on Twitter, saying that "legal reasons" prevent Warzone from using the weapon names in the patch notes.

Furthermore, the developers claim that they're not much of a fan of the naming scheme themselves.

Unfortunately, the way that the devs worded their statements suggest that future Call of Duty games will be tied to the same legal issues.

TLDR; don't expect things to improve for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 once they come out later this year.
