Bizarre Warzone bug brings Most Wanted players back to life after dying

Warzone players have experienced a strange bug with the Most Wanted contract, dying while holding it then being revived after the Most Wanted stays its course.

Most Wanted contracts are among the most popular in Warzone, granting a big income of cash if you can survive the time while holding one, with everyone in Verdansk able to see your exact location.

This is a high-risk, high-reward contract to pick up, but can be instrumental in helping your team get their loadouts, buy streaks or equipment and generally stay on top of the game as you traverse the map — but there’s a bug which is making it super overpowered.

Verdansk has been home to a fair few bugs, and now the Most Wanted contract has to be added to the list.

As you’ll be well aware if you’ve played much Warzone, Most Wanted isn’t only great for getting some extra money in the bank, it also brings back any players that have been lost in the throes of battle.

That means that rather than having to find a Buy Station to revive your teammates, they will simply respawn once the contract has finished, from which point you can help them get their loadout, armor and back into the action.

Now, though, the function seems a bit broken. As you can see in the clip below from Joel_Cantelo, they died while using the Most Wanted contract, but it didn’t disappear with them.

Instead, it stayed live while the teammate lived on and, once the timer had run down, brought Cantelo straight back into the game.

I died after I marked myself as most wanted.. the contract didn’t end, spectating a teammate and it brought me back ! from r/CODWarzone

It’s unclear how or why this happened. As you can see, it clearly has Cantelo’s gamertag on the Most Wanted, so it’s not obvious whether the Most Wanted simply stayed active but invisible to enemies, or if it passed to his teammate, but this could be incredibly frustrating for players who manage to take out Most Wanted enemies.

That said, it would be hard to complain if it happened to us. Free revives and money? We’d be silly to say no, but Infinity Ward will likely want to get this bug fixed sooner rather than later.

Dr Disrespect explodes after stream snipers ruin charity Warzone event

Dr Disrespect was all set and ready to go in Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 ‘Cracked Creators’ Warzone event, though his run was cut short due to pesky stream snipers that ruined his day.

The latest Warzone event threw elite players and content creators into Verdansk with a unique twist. Rather than forming their own teams, streamers had to pick their Duo from a list of “cracked” players.

From Seth ‘Scump’ Abner to Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier, all of the biggest names were lined up to compete for a good cause. For most of them, the event went smoothly as they squared off with others in Warzone. For Dr Disrespect and his chosen partner ZLaner, things didn’t get off to a good start.

“It’s phony desperation everywhere,” Doc said in his very first round of action.

The pair ran into alleged stream snipers in the very first round, and after the Two-Time was executed out of nowhere he declared, “I’m never playing in another Warzone tournament without a delay, ever.”

Unfortunately for them, things didn’t improve over the next few rounds. Doc and ZLaner were unable to close out a single map win throughout their run in the event. They dropped two maps against Joseph ‘Merk’  DeLuca & Clint ‘Maven’ Evans before falling out of the lower bracket to Trevor May and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper.

“That is it for me today stream,” Doc said the moment their final tournament map came to an end. “I am literally losing brain cells.”

Opposing players had tracked down their location in every map just to be the ones to steal the moment. For the next event, Dr Disrespect assured that the duo will “throw the delay on” to prevent any more stream sniping shenanigans.

“After the first game I checked out,” he admitted.

“The tournament completely took me out of it. Lesson learned. I didn’t think it was gonna be that big of an issue… but it’s a horrifically large issue.”

It didn’t take long before Doc took aim at stream snipers on social media as well. He followed up with a hilariously scathing tweet to put them in their place, listing off insult after insult as only he could.

“Nothin like being stream sniped by a bunch of blonde banged, chubby-cheeked, inward kneed, desperation for attention, purple brace face, unathletic, D- grades, Cheeto bags constantly emptied wannabe gamers… during a charity tournament,” he posted during the Oct. 21 event’s run-time.

Dr Disrespect and ZLaner weren’t the only ones impacted by the problem during the event. Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop also vented his frustrations, after losing every map he played in the Warzone competition as well.

“I’m officially retiring from Warzone tournaments,” he declared on Twitter.

Some Duos were able to have far more luck throughout the day, however. You can catch up on all of the final event results from Hitch’s “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament in our official coverage hub here.
