A young Call of Duty fan has gone viral for recreating Modern Warfare and Warzone’s gun noises to an insanely accurate degree, to the point where it sounds like it’s taken straight from the game.

Despite all the controversies with hackers, bugs, and just general complaints, there’s no denying that Modern Warfare and Warzone have some top-notch details. From bolts on guns locking open when they should to characters making different sounds depending on how and where they are running, the developers’ attention to detail has been widely praised.

One such aspect that’s caught the most attention are the weapon sounds; each firearm emits distinct and realistic noises that are unique to that gun, such as when they’re shot or the bullet casings hitting the ground.

All that said, it’s not difficult to capture that sort of audio from the weapons’ real-life counterparts. What is difficult, however, is trying to realistically imitate those sounds using simply your mouth and voice.

A Call of Duty fan has gone viral after a video showed him replicating Modern Warfare gun sounds with his mouth.

That’s exactly what Call of Duty fan ‘gamerkidd111’ seems to be able to do, as he somehow perfectly recreated weapon sounds in a TikTok video he recently published that’s since gone viral.

The video, which has generated almost 3 million views on the platform, features gamerkidd111 making noises of several Modern Warfare guns, such as the grenade launcher, RPG, MP5, shotgun, and deagle handgun.

To say these sounds are hyper-realistic would be an understatement as the fan not only got the weapon firing sounds right but also other details like bullets hitting the ground and the various rounds traveling through the air.

Given how hard it probably is to do this so accurately, some have expressed doubts about whether all the sounds in the video are actually emitted by him, especially the incredibly on-point effect of the casings falling out of the chamber.

But, it seems enough people believe the fan to have carried his video into the rarified air of viral social media posts and it’s hard to blame them; it’s clear that he definitely has talent.

Hopefully, the popularity of this clip will inspire gamerkidd111 to make more videos putting his skills on display, because there’s no doubt that he has more under his sleeve.

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.
