I’ve had this happen a couple of times…
A current issue in Call of Duty: Warzone is that players who are downing enemies are not getting the kill credit for the kill, but the person who is finishing off the downed enemies are getting it.
Infinity Ward has confirmed on Twitter and directly to CharlieIntel that they already have this issue fixed internally but it missed the release patch.
The fix will be coming in the next title update for Call of Duty: Warzone, Cecot confirmed on Twitter.
In the next title— Joe Cecot
update (larger update) the person who downed will get the kill credit.
The change just missed release.
This will adjust who gets the kill credit and will probably change up how many kills each player on the team has, now properly awarding credit to the player who did the damage to take them down.
