Annoying Modern Warfare bug stops players from unlocking Damascus camos

Call of Duty players are encountering a problem in Modern Warfare that’s preventing them from unlocking the coveted Damascus camos after completing all of the requisite conditions for the collection.

Unlocking Damascus takes an unrelenting grind, but has become a rite of passage of sorts for a lot of CoD-diehards to accomplish. The rewarding spam of notifications after completing your last gun is still one of the most satisfying feats in the franchise.

A discouraging trend, however, is popping up where people aren’t getting their camo rewards for completing weapon challenges ranging from single Gold guns to the larger Damascus kit.

“I recently got Platinum for everything in the game but it decided not to give me the Damascus camo,” user ‘ebai69’ said. “I don’t think it’s fair that I went through that long and hard grind to not get the reward I deserve.”

The video attached shows the player going through their collection of weapons with Platinum skins shown on the ones featured. Apparently, ebai has contacted Activision support through their official channels but it didn’t yield any solutions.

Some suggested that the drop of Modern Warfare Season 5’s new weapons AN-94 and ISO could have something to do with it.

“Maybe it’s glitching and now you need to do the AN94 or ISO as well,” one person said. “Could be that they accidentally made that a requirement on mistake cause this didn’t happen before season 5, at least not that I know of.”

While it’s known that DLC weapons don’t fit the parameters of Demascus’ requirements, the CoD community tried to exhaust all possibilities of why the camo isn’t unlocking.

Im posting this video again. I recently got platinum for everything in the game but it decided not to give me the Damascus camo. I don’t it’s fair that I went through that long and hard grind to not get the reward I deserve. Please upvote this so a developer can it. from modernwarfare

Other people noted that the same error is happening to them, but on a “smaller scale” with individual gun rewards.

“On a smaller scale but related; I’ve finished all shotgun camos but don’t have Platinum either,” one person wrote. “R-90 was my last weapon and it says I’m 10/10 on all challenges but it did not unlock Gold. Basically ruined my motivation to continue working camo challenges.”

For anyone who’s grinded an extended goal in a game, you can see how annoying this kind of glitch would be. And now CoD players are waiting to see if a meaningful fix from Activision or Infinity Ward comes through to sort the issue.

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.
