A fascinating Warzone trick has been discovered that could come in clutch the next time that your teammates go down in the middle of a fight.

Being knocked down in Modern Warfare’s new battle royale mode leaves you with just a few options. Either you end the pain and gamble for a second chance in the Gulag, or you wait for a teammate to revive you if you haven’t purchased a self-revive from the shop.

While crawling over to a teammate for a hand could end in your entire team being wiped out, this clever tactic could just save your life and help win the game.

Early into a March 23 round of Warzone, Reddit user ‘GreekFire04’ and their squad landed towards the Verdansk airport, however, one player appeared to open his parachute a little too late.

In need of a revive, they were stranded on a rooftop with no time left for allies to come to their aid. While all hope seemingly lost, the team had one crafty trick still up their sleeves.

“Let me try to catch you,” they said while aiming directly up at the player overhead. Not a small drop by any means, players would need to pull their parachute again if they were trying to jump from that particular rooftop to the ground below.

Despite the risk, the downed player shimmied their way over the edge and subsequently dropped off.

Rather than falling flat onto the ground and instantly being sent to the Gulag, they were stopped midair thanks to the perfect positioning of their teammate.

Able to catch the descending player on their head, they broke the fall and revived their teammate in a split second to keep the full squad alive.

An alternate strategy is to simply open your parachute in time to stop your fall.

Clearly blown away by their discovery, the squad carried on with the rest of the match with a spot at the Gulag still reserved for later.

While you need an area clear from enemies to execute this trick, having a player drop directly on top of you could be the clutch play you need to win — just make sure you time it right, or your down ally might be wishing he’d never dropped.

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.
