An extraordinarily colorful bug in Modern Warfare has completely overhauled the tone of the FPS title as a Ground War map transitioned into a vibrant playground.

Since the release of Infinity Ward’s latest iteration in the Call of Duty franchise on October 25, the Call of Duty community has fallen victim to a number of obscene glitches and ridiculous bugs.

From melee executions being inexcusably denied to a golden camouflage issue that obscures half of the screen, there’s been no shortage of quirky discoveries in the popular FPS title. This new Ground War texture bug however, might be the most over the top bug to date.

Infinity Ward - Modern WarfareKrovnik Farmland was added in a free update on November 8.

Throughout a November 26 post, Reddit user ‘Titanarmin’ showcased the comical bug that completely altered the state of the Krovnik Farmland Ground War map.

Spawning in near one of the numerous barns scattered across the sprawling map, it immediately became evident that this structure was not quite like the rest.

With bright shades of each primary color permeating throughout the locale, the interior of the structure became an unforgettable light show. Progressing outside, various other nearby surfaces were impacted by the hilarious visual glitch as well. Even the somber carcass of a goat wasn’t spared of the vibrancy.

Implemented in the first free content drop since the launch of Modern Warfare, Krovnik Farmland marks the third Ground War map overall.

While the map was tonally consistent with the rest of the multiplayer experience, a number of amusing responses had the Call of Duty community wishing that they could happen upon such a novel visual glitch themselves.

“It’s like when we were kids driving around checking out all the Christmas lights,” Reddit user ‘FearcGaming’ responded to the amusing bug.

While numerous comments joked that the visual bug could serve as a Christmas-themed variant of the map, there has been no official comment from Infinity Ward on the potential for a cheerful holiday event in the gritty shooter.

Recently however, the first major seasonal content drop was outlined with a slew of new game modes, weapons, and maps all set to release on December 3. A new Ground War map titled ‘Port’ will also be introduced in the first season but here’s hoping the upcoming release can avoid any quizzical texture glitches like this.

Black Ops Cold War dev responds to broken Zombies XP growth

Treyarch has responded to a new issue that is slowing down Black Ops Cold War solo zombies players from leveling up their weapons. They intend to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Players reported the exp growth on their weapons had become increasingly slow. Some experimentation from Reddit user MaharaDTD discovered that it wasn’t impacting public lobby players, but was rather isolated to solo players and those on high round grinds.

Some players reported their guns not leveling up at all between rounds 30 and 100, while others, who played predominantly in co-op lobbies, reported almost no change at all.

The issues come amid a double XP event which should be the perfect time to grind out Zombies games, though. These problems stem from Treyarch combating an XP exploit where players could restart lobbies over and over again to wrack up big amounts – and the knock on effect has been completely ruining games.

Treyarch dev responds to Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapon XP issues

Treyarch dev Josh ‘Foxhound’ Torres announced that their team had confirmed the issue with limited XP growth, responding to the lengthy Reddit discussion with a handful of comments of his own.

“I spoke with the team, and we have identified an issue that was causing lower than intended Weapon XP in both solo Zombies matches and later Zombies rounds. We are looking to release a fix for both of these as soon as possible,” he said.

Torres also confirmed there will not be an extension to the 2XP weekend for zombies players, despite pressure from the community.

He said: “I shared what the team had to share, and then I kept them updated on the community sentiment and conversations. The team investigated and found actual issues. We’ll be fixing them, and we’ll have more 2XP events in the future.”

This means zombies players will need to wait patiently for the chance to grind 2XP boosts and upgrade their guns.
