North American esports organization Elevate have revealed their new pro roster for the Call of Duty World League, and it includes two newcomers from the most recent RosterMania period.

On June 21, Elevate announced that they’ve brought on veteran Andres ‘Lacefield’ Lacefield and Austin ‘Believe’ Smith to their starting lineup.

The new recruits will fill the two open spots left on the roster after Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno and Paul ‘Breszy’ Breszynski moved on to Luminosity Gaming and Enigma6 Group respectively. 

This new-look roster will represent Elevate in the remaining weeks of the CWL Pro League, the CWL Finals, if the team manages to qualify for the Playoffs, and the CWL Championship.

Lacefield joins Elevate after having represented Midnight Esports since March, failing to place in the top 10 of any of the three major events he competed in while with the team.

Prior to playing for Midnight, the veteran had been with G2 Esports, but was unable to qualify for the CWL Pro League after the team came short in the qualifier tournament.

As for Believe, this will be his first pro experience since being dropped from Excelerate Gaming back in March. Since then, he’s played for Nemesis Esports and Mazer Gaming, with whom he came in second at the CWL Anaheim Open Bracket tournament.

Elevate will hope that the addition of the two new players will inject some energy and urgency into a squad that hasn’t been performing all too well in the Pro League.

The team is currently in fifth place in Division B, but are a whole two games behind Splyce for the fourth seed, the final spot that guarantees automatic entry into the Playoffs.

With just four games remaining on the schedule, it’s unlikely that Elevate will be able to make up enough ground to sneak into the Playoffs directly, but will still have the chance to qualify via the Play-In tournament.

If they are to catch Splyce, they’ll have to do it the hard way, as their schedule consists of matches against OpTic Gaming, Gen.G, and the red-hot Team Reciprocity.

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.
