Bizarre Modern Warfare bug spawns Scrapyard players in ridiculous places

Modern Warfare Season 4 brought another fan-favorite map, Scrapyard, to the latest iteration of the legendary series, but some players can run into a slight problem with its spawn locations.

There’s been a few problems with spawns on reintegrated maps of the Call of Duty franchise. For example, Shipment was a map that many nostalgic fans were eager to explore, before being met with frustrating matches, unable to respawn without being in spots where they were immediately killed.

It got to the point where even CDL pros were expressing their discontent at the state of the game, and it’s been trial-and-error from Infinity Ward ever since to achieve a worthwhile fix.

Now, Redditor ‘PerrysReddit’ has found that the problem extends further than the reaches of the playable area of Modern Warfare’s new map, as it spawned them on a restricted part of Scrapyard without a chance to get back in.

The C point on Scrapyard is located on the north-west quadrant of the map, but it seems like there’s an errant spawn point that can revive players just outside of the battlefield.

The bug left the player outside of the Scrapyard bounds with a countdown to their doom.

After going down, since PerrysReddit’s team only had control of C at the time, they were naturally going to re-enter the game from that direction.

Only problem was that the spawn took them a bit too far from the intended location, resulting in the player frantically trying to find their way back into Scrapyard.

They hardly had anytime to react since the five-second timer demanding them to “return to [the] combat area” had started before they could even pull out their gun.

At least the spawns on Shipment are inside the map… from modernwarfare

This is something that more people are coming across in their first matches on the Season 4 map.

“It’s honestly possible that this map is just a quick edit of Boneyard and that spawn could’ve been a leftover spawn placement from Ground War,” user ‘FaultedPlace’ said. “I’ve tried to spawn on B and C plenty of times on that map only to actually spawn outside of the Scrapyard area.”

There’s going to be plenty of people loading into the new season of Modern Warfare, and Infinity Ward could issue a quick patch update to rectify the problem.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
