Crazy Modern Warfare glitch is blinding players on Arklov Peak

A blinding visual glitch on Arklov Peak is making Modern Warfare completely unplayable and forcing gamers to back out of certain lobbies as a result.

From vibrant glitches that change the color scheme of maps, to frustrating texture issues that blind players using weapon camouflages, there’s seemingly never any shortage of bugs in Modern Warfare.

The latest inexplicable problem comes from Arklov Peak, where players are having a difficult time seeing anything other than a bright blinding light.

Explosion and fire effects in Modern Warfare are one thing, this visual glitch features the most extreme lighting possible however.

Playing through an ordinary match on the Modern Warfare map, Reddit user ‘SmartFrldge’ was caught off guard by an unbelievable visual glitch while playing through the night and into the early morning.

“It’s 5 am and now I’m not sleepy anymore,” they joked while sharing a genuinely blinding bug with the Call of Duty community.

Turning to the right, an absurd beacon of light started to take over their entire screen, obscuring all forms of visual intel on enemy positioning, nearby objectives, and even elements of their HUD like ammo and killstreaks.

Unable to see anything whatsoever outside of the all-encompassing light, the player eventually walked closer to a building. From here they could make out a few details as they turned away and left the glitch behind them momentarily.

Attempting to run through various sections of the map, the blinding brightness just wouldn’t leave them alone, constantly obscuring the screen until they were gunned down and taken out of action.

Playing on PC, there’s no way of telling how the glitch happened. Perhaps a Flash Grenade detonated nearby and the effect failed to disappear, or maybe the issue stems from a specific component inside the player’s own PC. Regardless, that was their last match for the night as they hit ‘Alt+F4’ and “got to bed.”

While Infinity Ward is yet to comment on the issue, there’s clearly no indicating whether a fix will be implemented anytime soon.

While this glitch might burn your corneas, another recent—and terrifying—Modern Warfare bug left a character model with nothing but their floating eyes.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
