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?

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.
