Bizarre Modern Warfare glitch is giving players “unlimited XP”

Call of Duty players have found a strange glitch with the Trials mode in Modern Warfare which is seemingly giving them free experience points (XP) to level up faster.

Call of Duty is known for its level progression system and despite some changes to the classic prestige model, Modern Warfare still requires players to unlock new weapons and attachments by earning XP.

It can often take a few matches of multiplayer modes or Warzone until you gather enough XP to level up but some players seem to have found a way around the long grind.

Modern Warfare’s time trial courses are apparently rewarding players with free XP in Season 5.

It was revealed that one of the Season 5 missions in Modern Warfare’s Trials, which offers rewards for completing courses within a certain time, was giving players XP for failing the course.

Call of Duty YouTuber Acez Gaming highlighted this glitch, adding that players could earn up to 22,000 XP in a minute if they have a double XP token activated.

The content creator explained that simply dying to a sentry turret after shooting a target in the new ‘Shooting Range’ mission would reward you with three stars and plenty of XP.

Acez demonstrated that despite getting notified that his Trial attempt failed, it somehow gave him the maximum reward after leaving the game. The YouTuber added that, by simply repeating this process, it could be quite a game-breaking glitch, giving players tons of free levels for putting in little effort.

Although he claimed that it was an “unlimited XP glitch,” it does use up the trial tickets that you unlock through multiplayer games, meaning that it is not truly unlimited.

However, the glitch itself is still quite ridiculous and it is likely that Infinity Ward will be looking to patch this bug in a future update.

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

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.
