All those who are looking to try out Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 before its release will get another chance to do so soon.

Publisher Activision has announced that the Multiplayer of the upcoming title will be playable at the 2018 CoD World League Championships in Columbus, OH from August 17th-19th.

The announcement came via a post on the Call of Duty Twitter page on July 6th.

CWL Champs is the last and biggest event of the competitive CoD season, featuring the top 32 teams of the world competing against each other for the $1.5 million prize pool.

All those in attendance over the age of 18 will have the chance to play the Black Ops 4 Multiplayer on Playstation 4, although the wait times will likely be long throughout the duration of the event.

This is not the first time where Black Ops 3 Muliplayer will be available for the public to try out, it was also playable during the E3 gaming convention and CWL Anaheim tournament during the month of June.

During both times, the new Multiplayer maps Contraband, Frequency, Seaside, and Payload were all playable, and will presumably also be available during Champs.

For tickets to CWL Champs, visit the official MLG webpage here. For a detailed preview of the four maps mentioned above, click here.

Loadout Drops are ruining Warzone matches thanks to bizarre glitch

Loadout Drops can now be added to the list of potential threats in Warzone, as unlucky Call of Duty players still grinding the battle royale have been hit with a new game-breaking bug that makes it impossible to win.

Infinity Ward’s hugely popular battle royale is into its sixth season now. Despite plenty of iteration and tons of updates since launch, new bugs continue to pop up. The latest will have you questioning every Loadout Drop until a fix is deployed.

Loadout Drops are absolutely vital in Warzone. It’s the only way to secure the most powerful weapons in the game and kit your Operator out with some important perks. However, it turns out they also have some critical downsides in the latest update.

Rather than grabbing a set of weapons and being on your way, there’s a chance that Loadout Drops now ruin your match. Here’s what you need to be cautious of.

Be careful where you call your Loadout Drops in and how quickly you access them.

While running through a game on October 25, Reddit user ‘tharimrattler’ was thrown off guard by a Loadout Drop. To begin with, it landed in a rather awkward spot atop a street sign. Though what followed was far more awkward.

The player selected their Loadout almost instantly once the menu appeared. They were likely spamming the select button straight away as they had their favorite setup as the top class option. Unfortunately, choosing the Loadout this fast came with some complications. The progress bar for ‘Capturing’ the crate remained on screen.

No matter what they did, how far they moved from the drop, or what buttons they pressed, this bar stayed in effect. While that may not seem like a huge deal, this is what prevented them from shooting, swapping weapons, and using any form of equipment. For the rest of the game, they were quite literally defenseless.

Plenty of other players chimed in, adding they’ve also encountered the strange bug. It’s clearly not a one-off issue but there’s no telling how common it is just yet. You’ll need to be extra careful when interacting with Supply Drops until next update.

If you get hit with this particular glitch, there’s no proper way to deal with it.

Other issues can be fought through but for the Loadout Drop bug, it more or less means game over. If you’re downed, there’s a chance you might regain control in the Gulag. Though even that could seriously hinder if not ruin your run.

Infinity Ward is yet to comment on the issue but something this severe will likely be an immediate priority. Keep your eyes peeled for updates over the next few days.
