Bizarre Warzone bug turns player’s weapon into a dog

While Warzone has had its fair share of glitches, perhaps nothing can top this peculiar bug which is inadvertently giving players their very own K-9 unit, in exchange for one of their weapons.

While Warzone has been plagued by the seemingly endless stream of cheaters since its launch. Whether it’s aimbots or wallhacks (or both), players often find their games are ruined by those pesky hackers who are taking advantage of Modern Warfare’s cross-play system.

But while Infinity Ward’s battle royale has been welcomed with open arms by a large majority of the gaming world, there have been umpteen bugs which have also ruined players’ in-game experiences.

Warzone’s gas visuals have caused quite a stir, as some players are getting an unfair advantage in certain situations.

From inconsistent visual bugs due to the gas in Verdansk to an infinite ammo glitch from using the Akimbo weapon perk, Warzone has most definitely had its fair share of issues — and Infinity Ward are hard at work trying to fix them.

However, the most recent bug might be the most wholesome one of the lot — that is, if you’re a fan of Call of Duty’s four-legged superstar, Riley, who was reintroduced back into the franchise during Season Three of Modern Warfare.

One Reddit user posted footage of a bizarre incident where their AX-50 Sniper Rifle turned into Ghost’s faithful German Shepherd after they were eliminated by the opposition.

Well aperently my Ax-50 turned into a Dog wich you can also use and pick up from CODWarzone

While the bug allows the player to ADS towards the enemy, as soon as they’re eliminated, they drop a Riley-shaped weapon model on the rooftop instead of the AX-50 that was in their hands.

One Redditor explained that the bug is strictly visual and does not impact performance: “It just turns into the AX-50 in your hands. Whenever you drop it again, the dog model will appear.”

While that is all well and good, Infinity Ward will likely want to get to the crux of the visual issue and resolve this as soon as possible.

Or perhaps this is all part of the developer’s grand plan and we’ll be seeing Riley-themed skins in the store sometime in the near future?

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
