Frustrating Call of Duty: Warzone bug breaks respawning teammates

A bug has been popping up in Call of Duty: Warzone where players are unable to buy their dead teammates back, despite having enough money to do so.

Picture this: You and the boys have dropped hot in quads. You all found recon drones while your opponents found legendary crates—a tale as old as time. You all hit the gulag. Only one of you makes it out, it’s you. The boys refuse to give up on you, they tell you to hit a Scavenger mission and try to buy them back. 

A couple Scavengers and some near-death experiences later, you have $1,3500—enough to get everyone. You hit the buy station, only to be hit with the following error: “The selected squadmate is already back in action.”

Warzone’s buy stations are crucial tools to use, unless they betray you.


It’s an annoying bug and one with no clear solution or cause. The best part about making money is spending money, especially when the entire point of squad-based modes is to play with your team.

A few homeopathic remedies appear to exist: players have found success by giving money to another teammate who is somehow then able to purchase the re-deployment or, most commonly, by trying out different vendors.

But sometimes you might not be afforded the luxuries of time or a teammate, as evidenced by Redditor ‘krisluck’ who was fortunate enough to accrue $10,000 as the last of four teammates still alive—and then unfortunate enough to be hit with this bug.

In their case, the startling error turned what would have been a smooth re-deployment effort into a frenzy of confusion. After a few attempts to bypass the game’s lies, an enemy team popped up and put him out of his misery.

At the moment, there appears to be no fix in the works as the glitch is not included on Infinity Ward’s Trello board

Since another Redditor, ‘Mr_Tailmore’ has suggested the bug has been around for ‘at least a month,’ it’s possible that it is relatively infrequent and lower on IW’s list of priorities. Since it’s not on Trello, we can’t track its importance to the developers, but can be sure it is annoying people enough that they should consider bumping it up a few spots.

No sweeter sight than your re-deployed reinforcements dropping in.


On the plus side, IW has extended their double-XP offerings because of all the miscellaneous bugs that came with the latest major patch—so maybe that extension will get pushed further back.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
