Treyarch have responded to a bizarre Black Ops 4 glitch that appears to make players completely invulnerable when they occupy a specific spot on Hacienda, a map that is currently being played in the 2019 CWL Championship. 

Black Ops 4 is nearly at the end of its life cycle, with the majority of the CoD community eagerly anticipating Modern Warfare, but that hasn’t stopped players from noticing problems in Treyarch’s FPS.

One particular glitch was brought to the community’s attention via Reddit, when one user asked, “what game am I playing?” Attached was a bizarre clip of the player shooting an enemy for a few seconds, but no hits were registering.

As the clip shows, the enemy appears to be invulnerable while they are crouched behind the counter in Hacienda’s garage. Hits start to register as soon as the player moves, leading to the suggestion that the spot is glitched and makes players invulnerable. 

The clip was picked up on by Josh Torres, Communications Coordinator at Treyarch. “Thank you for sharing this video,” he replied. “I’ve passed it and the thread along to our team.” 

The response from Treyarch suggests that it is an issue, and one they will be trying to patch for the remainder of Black Ops 4’s life cycle. 


The clip was responded to by another user, who stated that they experienced a similar issue a few months ago.

In another video, they encounter an Ajax hiding behind his shield (surprise), in the exact same spot in Hacienda’s garage. However, the player has the angle on the Ajax, and shoots them in the side. Despite this, no hits are registered, even though the player is clearly missing Ajax’s protective shield. 

Both clips combined certainly point to a serious glitch with that particular Hacienda spot. 

What’s more concerning for players is the fact that Hacienda is currently a map being used in the 2019 CWL Championships. It is used for both S&D and Hardpoint, with the garage being the second rotation in Hardpoint.

The CWL Championships enter their final day on August 18, with only four teams left in the running. 100 Thieves take on Team Reciprocity in the Losers Bracket, while OpTic Gaming face eUnited in the Winners Final. You can stay informed on all CWL Championship results and news at our dedicated hub

While there have been no issues with the glitch spot so far, we hope it stays that way at such a pivotal point in competitive CoD.

LMGs aren’t exactly known for their mobility, but the Stoner 63 is one gun you’ll want to try giving a go. With the right attachments, it can be a real winner for you in Black Ops Cold War. 

The Stoner 63 has been a fan-favorite gun amongst LMG enthusiasts since it tore its way through the virtual battlefields of the original Black Ops. While it may no longer be as potent as it once was, this LMG still packs a punch. Whether you’re looking to grab the DM Ultra camo or aiming to get those all-important multi-kills, the Stoner 63 will enable you to do just that. 

It might not be as fast as the game’s SMG and assault rifle classes, but the Stoner 63 is arguably the most viable LMG in the game. Unlike the M60 and RPD, this LMG actually has decent accuracy by default. When you combine this with its high-damage rounds, you have a recipe for success.

The Stoner 63 is the most viable LMG in Black Ops Cold War.

Here’s the best attachments you can use on your Stoner 63 in Black Ops Cold War:


  • Optic: Millstop Reflex
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.56
  • Barrel: 20.7 Match Grade
  • Body: SOF Target Designator
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 100 RND
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Pad

While the Stoner 63 has a fairly decent standard sight, the Millstop Reflex remains a staple pick for most guns in Black Ops Cold War. It instantly gets rid of any annoying obstructions and provides a clear picture of your surroundings. 

Next up is the Muzzle Brake 5.56 and Field Agent Grip. Both of these attachments make the Stoner 63’s vertical recoil a lot more manageable, especially when firing for longer periods of time. The gun will still creep up the screen during prolonged engagements, but you’ll usually kill your target before needing to make any major adjustments. 

The 20.7 Match Grade increases the LMG’s damage by a whopping 100% enabling you to sit back and beam anyone that dares stray into your sights. When this is combined with the added reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator, you have a truly lethal combination.

Don’t expect to be light on your feet when you’re wielding this LMG.

While this loadout is not tailored around close-quarter fights, it can still give you a fighting chance against the game’s ever-popular SMG and AR classes. This is thanks to the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raid Pad stock, which minimizes the gun’s ADS time and sprint to fire penalty. 

No LMG loadout would be complete without featuring a large magazine, so the 100 RND mag has been utilized. This enables you to effortlessly take down multiple foes or greatly damage any pesky Scorestreaks that are flying around. Just make sure you find somewhere safe to reload, as the lengthy animation can prove frustrating. 

So there you have it, a Stoner 63 loadout that will enable you to barrage your enemies with deadly precision. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
