Call of Duty players have found a strange glitch where they are unable to throw or detonate their C4 explosives in Warzone.

While Call of Duty titles such as Modern Warfare require players to be accurate in their gunfights, their character’s lethal and tactical equipment can also play a massive role in giving them the advantage over their opponents.

With the addition of Warzone, usually underused lethals and tacticals have played an increased role in the game, with it being revealed that C4’s are used by about 80% of battle royale players.

However, it has been revealed that the most popular pieces of equipment has been failing to work properly in-game, making them useless for some Warzone players.

Lethal equipment can be quite useful in Warzone, particularly against players with vehicles.

This strange new glitch with the C4 is seemingly making it impossible for Warzone players to throw the lethal, despite their character going through a similar animation on-screen.

An example of this bizarre bug was highlighted by u/badder_eend, who shared the clip on the Warzone subreddit on September 3.

After spotting an enemy down below, the player attempted to throw their C4 but their character’s throwing animation seemed to fail, leaving them confused at what was happening.

“Was going to throw a C4, I instead started coughing into my elbow whenever I pushed the button,” they explained.

While the opposing player was seemingly unaware of badder_eend’s position, experiencing a glitch like this could be quite costly in a normal Warzone gunfight.

As of now, it is still unclear what could have caused this glitch but, if it continues to affect other Warzone players, it is likely that Infinity Ward will look to issue a fix for the bug in a future update.

Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
