Bizarre ‘black hole glitch’ in Warzone is totally ruining matches

Call of Duty Warzone players have been encountering a strange glitch that wipes everything from their point-of-view, leaving them with a black hole-like box that swallows everything in sight.

On March 10, Call of Duty made its second dip into the battle royale genre with the addition of Warzone to Modern Warfare. The multiplayer mode, which is also free-to-play to those who don’t own Modern Warfare, has been a hit, with over 30 million players dropping in for at least one game.

However, that hasn’t stopped problems from rearing their heads. Players have run into issues with being spawned in the deadly gas, not seeing items from enemies who have died and disconnected, as well as dying to the rocks in the gulag. Yet, the most deadly glitch of all might be a ‘black hole’ that appears on players’ screens.

Warzone has been a big hit with Call of Duty fans.

The glitch, which doesn’t happen right off the bat in-games and takes a few circle collapses to show up, takes a part of a player’s screen and turns it completely black.

For some, like Reddit user Survilus, it apparently happens in every single match that they play, ruining the chance to win gunfights and get one over on an opponent as they’re cowering in a corner trying to address the issue.

As of right now, there isn’t a real fix for the problem, but players have found that they can look away from the gaping black hole and try to look elsewhere for a moment in order to fix.

Of course, that doesn’t quite do the job if you’re stuck in a firefight with an enemy or having a Cluster Strike rain down on you from above.

The bug is one of the major four that were picked up by Infinity Ward when they revealed which issues they were working on fixing for future updates.

Yet, as of writing, they haven’t quite managed to get it addressed and the glitch is causing players to lose out on their matches in Warzone. When it will be fixed, though, remains to be seen.

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.

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.
