Call Of Duty: Blackout video of five-year-old rescuing Dad goes viral

A clip of a five-year-old girl rescuing her dad in Call of Duty Blackout has gone viral.

The video, which was uploaded to Twitter on December 2 has been viewed over 5.8 million times, with 110,000 people retweeting it and over 355,000 liking the post.

Following on from the success of the video, CleverTricks – as he is known on Twitter – has posted more clips of the pair playing the battle royale mode on YouTube.

In the video, the father and daughter duo were pressed for time and had to make it back towards the circle, they stumbled upon some players. 

The dad picked up a fairly simple kill at point-blank range before charging towards the building’s window, where he hopped outside and quickly realized there was somebody behind him. His young daughter had remarkably called out that there might be another player there and she was right.

He tried his best to maneuver into a good shooting position, but was shot down and looked on the brink of elimination, before asking for her help, saying: “I’m down. Go get him. Go get him. Go get him!”

Using the GKS, his daughter dispatched of the opponent with ease and kept her father in the game by quickly reviving him.

He thanked her, saying: “Oh my goodness, I can’t believe you did that. That’s amazing! Those guys just got merked by a five-year-old”. 

Following the video’s surge in popularity, the dad revealed that he had to buy his daughter a microphone so that other people could also hear her the next time she saves the day. Winning a game of Quads together played a big part in the decision to get her a headset. 

“I can’t keep up with liking all of your wholesome comments but know I am grateful for having the opportunity to share this with you all. It warms the heartstrings.”

While some Call of Duty fans thought it was cute, others couldn’t believe that he had let his five-year-old daughter play CoD.

Game-breaking Warzone bug is teleporting players around Verdansk

Call of Duty: Warzone players are no strangers to bugs, but a new teleportation one is catching them by surprise and suddenly making them strangers in foreign lands across Verdansk.

It’s hard to iron out every single bug and issue in a game, and even harder when the game is periodically receiving massive updates with new cosmetics, modes, and locations. As such, it’s no surprise that Modern Warfare and Warzone’s developers at Infinity Ward have an extensive backlog of problems they’re still trying to fix.

Unlike some of the game’s earlier big bugs, like the frustrating Heartbeat Sensor glitch or “demon gun” nightmare, this teleportation one seems to have gone completely under the developers’ radar. 

In the clip below, a player is seen trying to break through a window in one section of the map before suddenly, practically instantaneously, being teleported across the map. It’s very surprising, very confusing, and, apparently, very new.

While Infinity Ward is typically very transparent with their tasks, piling known issues into a publicly available Trello Board, this teleportation bug has not cracked the list. This could very well mean that this is a recent issue that the encumbered developers remain unaware of.

As shown by Reddit’s ‘DandruffMuffin,’ they are in an attic in one of the houses atop Dam when they casually try to break through a window and escape toward the Fire Station. In what looks like a poorly spliced together series of clips, the window-breaking animation is delayed by a couple of seconds while the game’s surrounding landscape loads up.

Imagine, in one second, going from snowy Dam all the way to…Promenade?

Once those smooth textures turn into real graphics, it’s revealed that DandruffMuffin is not a horrible video editor, but the subject of a new fast travel system entirely unrelated to the new Verdansk subway line. Seconds after being in a house above Dam, they are teleported hundreds of meters away from their teammate to the middle of the road near Promenade and the Hills.

It’s as bizarre a bug as they get and you get that feeling very visibly from DandruffMuffin’s confused reactions. As of yet, Infinity Ward has not responded to this issue and no one seems certain about its causes.
