Absurd new Warzone glitch is giving players unlimited respawns

If you’ve ever wanted to stay in the same Warzone lobby forever, you’re now able to do just that thanks to a ridiculous Call of Duty bug that’s giving battle royale players unlimited respawns.

From Fortnite to Apex Legends, the genre-defining Battle Royale games all share one common trait. If you die, you’re out of the match for good, unless a teammate is able to bring you back to life.

Warzone has its unique Gulag system that allows you to earn a second chance at glory. But beyond that, once you’re down and out it’s usually time to leave and find another lobby. With 150 players in a typical match, games can come and go relatively quickly. Though what if they never had to end?

A bizarre new issue plaguing the Infinity Ward title is keeping players in one instance of Verdansk indefinitely. No matter how many times players are wiped out, a glitch is providing unlimited respawns so they can immediately drop back in.

With the safe zone shrinking in a July 27 game, Reddit user ‘b6109’ was left to fend for themselves against 17 remaining players. However, before long that number soon began climbing. Despite the Gulag being shut for the final section of the match, enemies were still continuing to flood back into the map.

Regardless of how many players they killed, nor how many times they died, the lobby stayed just as populated. Operators continued to parachute back down even after gas had completely taken over Verdansk.

There’s no telling exactly what led to the endless glitch in Warzone. For all we know, that instance could still be going right now. So long as at least two players stay in the game, it theoretically could continue until the servers eventually go offline.

It might seem like nothing more than a good laugh at first. However, it actually proved to be an effective way of padding statistics. “I usually average 6/15 kills on Solos,” the player said. “This game finished on 27 kills.”

Even if you lose your Gulag 1v1 this glitch could still bring you back to life.

From completing individual challenges to unlocking certain weapon camos, an endless deathmatch could be just what some players need. This bug occurred in a solo matchup but it could always spread to other playlists as well.

Infinity Ward is yet to address the issue so keep your eyes peeled moving forward. Players could be instantly dropping back in after you wipe them out in Warzone.

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.

Specific dates for the upcoming 2021 season events are still unknown, but we’ll keep you posted on them as information becomes available.

If you’re interested in seeing if you and your team have what it takes, you can get more information on how to sign up and get going right here. There’s no guarantee you’ll be the next player on the Dallas Empire or anything like that, but if you’re confident in your ability to frag out, it can’t hurt to give it a shot.
