Bizarre Warzone bug doesn’t show zone circle

A strange Warzone bug is affecting players by literally not showing them the zone circle — leaving them unaware of where to land or rotate.

Warzone has become somewhat of a haven for bizarre bugs and glitches to arise, frustrating players on a seemingly endless loop, with the likes of the stim glitch and invisibility glitch regularly rearing their ugly heads.

This issue, though, is completely random, and seems to be affecting the Buy Back modes — in the example here, BR Buy Back Solos.

Following the circle is one of the most important rules of any battle royale game, but that looks incredibly difficult when there’s not even a circle for you to see.

Staying inside the circle is much harder when there’s no circle to follow.

What’s worse in the instance here, and what makes it look to be a Buy Back bug and perhaps not one affecting every mode in the game, is that HungLikeALemur doesn’t spawn in with the standard $4500, essentially making the game significantly harder off the rip.

While it’s not uncommon for the circle to be slow to pop up, occasionally, it does eventually turn up, hopefully not too long after you’re able to drop.

It’s unclear for how long Lemur was unable to see the circle for and where he was meant to be going, but even after over a minute, there was no sign of it on the map.

As you can imagine, this essentially ruins matches for people, but it doesn’t seem to be a particularly widespread issue just yet, with clips like these being more of a rarity than other common bugs and glitches.

That said, it’s definitely something Warzone developers Raven Software will want to investigate to ensure it doesn’t become a more frequent thing, and hopefully prevent it from happening altogether.
