A professional cosplayer known as ‘demateraliz’ has shared his incredible interpretation of Donnie ‘Ruin’ Walsh, the gravity-slamming specialist from Black Ops 3 and 4. 

Call of Duty is not typically associated with excellent cosplaying, but the most recent installments in Activision’s FPS series have introduced some creatively designed characters for cosplayers to try their hands at.

Black Ops 3 introduced specialist characters for the first time in CoD history, and reintroduced a selection of their original cast for 2018’s Black Ops 4.

Black Ops 4 brought back some Black Ops 3 fan favorites, including Firebreak and Battery.

One of the characters brought back for the fourth installment in Treyarch’s series was Donnie ‘Ruin’ Walsh, the gravity-slamming specialist who was a popular pick in Black Ops 3.

While his gravity spikes were somewhat toned down in Black Ops 4, his unique character design was maintained. The trademark mohawk stayed, alongside some vivid facial tattoos and the badass American attitude.

These are characteristics that have been perfected by the cosplayer, who also dons the bland overalls and knee pads Ruin is typically seen with.

Despite perfecting a number of cosplays on his Instagram, including God of War’s Kratos, he explained that the Ruin look is the “most uncomfortable” cosplay he’s done, and “it feels like being squeezed into a tin can”.

His photoshoot perfectly captures the character too, with the desolate, dark landscape looking like the result of one of his gravity slams. The commitment to the cosplay is also evident, with the facial tattoos visible next to the easily-recognizable mohawk.

It reiterates the exceptional lengths some cosplayers go to in order to perfect their outfits, all in order to accurately recreate a fan-favorite character.

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.
