Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 players can now enjoy a better gaming experience thanks to Beenox's latest patch. The new setting, called Inverted Flash, makes flashbang grenades easier on the eyes by turning the screen completely black instead of completely white when it is activated. This minor but much-requested feature was released as part of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare2's Season Reloaded on March 15th.

Beenox, an Activision subsidiary known for its work on games such as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 remaster, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War alongside Infinity Ward’s new Call Of Duty Modern Warfare2 from which Call Of Duty Warzone2 spun off unveiled this feature via a short clip posted on Twitter. The video showcases how enabling inverted flash works in the game; in conventional circumstances throwing a flashbang grenade at the feet would make the screen go completely white for a second before fading back in. However, with inverted flash enabled, the screen goes immediately dark, then fades out partially before switching over to a white effect until it eventually wears off entirely. This should protect gamers from becoming blinded because they will remember to turn it on beforehand.

Inverted Flash mode can be enabled in the game’s options menu under “Graphics Settings”, where it appears as a checkbox labeled “Reduce Screen Flashes On Impact”; when enabled, this setting will reduce the intensity and duration of those flashes significantly.

All in all, Beenox has once again managed to impress with yet another impressive update making sure that players are able not only to play safely but also enjoy themselves even further, knowing that developers are doing everything possible so everyone may continue having fun no matter where they stand concerning skill level. Hopefully, future updates will bring about even more improvements than what we have seen thus far, building upon what is already an amazing foundation and resulting in something truly special down the line.
