Is Warzone's Texture Pack 3 even worth the space?

Texture Pack 3 has just dropped for Warzone and promises to support "the most detailed textures for weapons and Operators in Modern Warfare and Warzone".

However, with Warzone getting bigger and bigger, we're asking whether this optional High-Resolution pack is worth the hard drive space it will take up.

Below, we have everything you need to know about Warzone's Texture Pack 3.

Texture Pack 3 Information

High Resolution Pack 3 is a free download for Modern Warfare, but it will apply to Warzone too so don't worry.

It clocks in at a pretty sizeable 8.36GB, which will push Warzone alone up to around 130GB as it stands.

Although there isn't too much information about what it will do exactly, it does say that it is recommended for PS4 Pro and PS5 players with high-resolution displays.

We can only assume that Activision is talking about 4K displays when mentioning this, as that is what sets these two consoles apart from the standard PS4.

It's also worth noting that the update offers similar information on Xbox consoles. It is recommended for Xbox One X and Xbox Series X|S owners.

With it seeming like all the Modern Warfare and Warzone assets being in native 4K, with textures and Operators upscaled, is the update worthwhile?

Is It Worth It?

This is the big question, really.

If you have the space going spare, then absolutely. It can't hurt to have Texture Pack 3 installed for Warzone.

However, if you are a bit tight on space... It might not be?

There are often occasions were Warzone struggles to load Verdansk, especially during the first game of a session. This can result in delayed textures and everything looks a little weird.

There is no proof that this Texture Pack will actually improve the loading times of textures in-game, rather it will just make them better when they do appear.

HIGH-RES - Do you care about Warzone having 4K visuals or not?

In addition to this, Warzone and Modern Warfare are still PS4 titles. They're never going to look as good as Black Ops Cold War does on a PlayStation 5. (Or an Xbox Series X!)

There are rumours a native next-gen release is in the works, but that's a long ways off. Could this be the first steps towards that?

Texture Pack 3 is available now for both Warzone and Modern Warfare.
