A strange glitch with Warzone’s new tactical equipment, the Spotter Scope, can automatically ping any nearby opponents for you once they enter your field of view (FoV) in Verdansk.

Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode Warzone features a massive map, Verdansk, where it can be difficult to spot enemies, particularly in some of the more open areas of the map.

However, a new piece of tactical equipment, the Spotter Scope, which works similarly to binoculars, was introduced to help players locate and ping their opponents from far away.

While there were mixed reactions to this new piece of equipment, it may become a go-to item after a glitch was found with it that could give players a significant advantage in Warzone.

Call of Duty YouTuber Bubs shared this unusual trick and revealed that the spotter scope could automatically ping opponents once they appear on screen, even labeling it a “semi wallhack.”

“You can ping and see people from so far away, once you see them the ping will automatically be there and it’s basically like a semi wallhack glitch after that,” he added, revealing that the ping can be tracked if they move into cover.

Bubs explained that, while it is a simple trick, you will require the help of a friend or need to buy a self-revive from a Buy Station in order to attempt this glitch.

How to automatically ping enemies in Warzone

  1. You’ll first need to find a Spotter Scope and a Molotov or Thermite grenade while looting.
  2. With a friend nearby, or with a Self Revive kit ready to use, throw one of these lethal grenades on the ground and walk into it while looking through your Spotter Scope.
  3. Keep looking through the scope until you get downed by the damage and then crawl out of the fire.
  4. Revive yourself using your self-revive kit or have a friend help you up.
  5. Once you’re up, your character should automatically ping any opponents that walk into your FoV.

There you have it, once you follow these steps you should be any players that enter your FoV should be pinged, which could help with any you might have missed.

However, as this seems to be an unintended exploit, it is likely that Infinity Ward will look to implement a patch for this glitch in one of their future updates.

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.

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.
