New York Subliners star Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi has responded to his team’s critics calling them a “friendship team” after a disappointing start to the Call of Duty League.

When the starting roster of Accuracy, Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda, Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris, Dillon ‘Attach’ Price, and Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto was first announced, it sounded brilliant on paper, but it slowly became apparent as the season progressed that they weren’t performing to the standard they should be.

Many fans thought the substitutes for the Subliners were underwhelming, too, with both Doug ‘Censor’ Martin and Nick ‘Happy’ Suda having been vacant from the pro scene in recent years.

The Subliners were quickly criticized for being a “friendship team,” a term used for picking up players based on social ties rather than in-game ability, and now Accuracy has hit back at that notion in a video posted by the team on April 2.

In the extended version of the video, Abedi talks about his come-up in the Call of Duty scene and the sacrifices he had to make to go pro, but in a short snippet posted to Twitter, he directly calls out people who call New York a “friendship team.”

“Everyone in CoD is basically friends,” he said. “So when I see everyone saying ‘Oh, Subliners are just friends,’ it doesn’t make sense to me. It just makes me think, like, do you guys not want us to be friends?”

He went on to explain that as a team you want to have fun with your teammates, you want to enjoy their presence, as you’re spending all day together and working with them for several hours a day.

The response was met with some criticism, with one Reddit user saying that he “misses the point,” while another suggests that “the friendship between him and the team is the only reason why Zer0 is benched and he’s not.”

Accuracy makes a valid point when he says that all teams are – and should be – friends, because you have to get along with these people to gel with them in-game as well as out. Whether fans are pleased with the response, though, is another question.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

Modern Warfare Juggernaut
Activision / Infinity Ward
It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
