Players have discovered a frustrating wall breach glitch in Warzone that is ruining Airport and other points of interest on the map for them.

Despite how well-loved Warzone has been in the time since it was released, it’s impossible to deny that cheaters and hackers are ruining the game experience for many people. Whether it be aimbotters or unlimited health god mode glitches, players have found new ways to unfairly steal wins in Verdansk.

The issue has become a huge one, so much so that Infinity Ward announced on March 31 that they’ve already permanently banned 50,000 players that they have caught cheating or using hacks in some form.

Now, a new wall breach has been found near the Airport area of the map, and it’s impossible to counter and ruining games for players.

Posting to Reddit on March 31, derkerburgl showed himself being killed by some invisible being, with shots seemingly coming out of thin air near a wall.

It soon became apparent that he was actually being shot through the wall, but he had no hope of anticipating the gunfire or responding to it at all – which must be especially frustrating when there’s only 25 left in the game.

As mentioned above, this isn’t the first time someone is using in-game exploits in Warzone and it probably won’t be the last.

Other players have reported various wall breach spots (which, for obvious reasons, we won’t go into detail here) but a number of respondents in the Reddit comments explained that it’s likely something to do with the nearby truck.

They say that as it was parked in such a narrow space, the game simply clipped the player into the wall when they exited the vehicle as there was no space for them to actually stand in the tight gap.

With 50,000 players already permanently banned from the game, we would imagine Infinity Ward are working particularly hard on identifying cheaters and repeat offenders to make sure issues such as these don’t persist.

But, for now, if you ever see a truck randomly passed in that little space at Airport, assume the worst and get out of there as soon as possible.

Black Ops Cold War Beta players on consoles can finally change their field of view settings thanks to a welcome addition by Treyarch. Here’s everything you need to know about the new options, including what the best setting is.

Field of view options for consoles is something that fans have been asking for for a long time. Whenever a new CoD game releases, there’s always a section of PlayStation and Xbox players wondering why the option hasn’t been made available for them. It’s equally frustrating considering that the PC version of every iteration has had the options available on day one.

This is all changing with Black Ops Cold War, however, as Treyarch has confirmed that players on consoles will finally be able to adjust their field of view. For people unfamiliar with the options, this might be a bit confusing. Taking advantage of these settings, however, might end up helping your game.

What is field of view?

At its most basic form, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.

While some people might immediately say that a high field of view is automatically better, it’s important to note that the higher the field of view, the more distorted your screen will look and the smaller objects will look at a distance.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to balance you’re field of view with what your comfortable looking at.

How do I adjust my FOV settings?

In the beta, finding the FOV slider is relatively simple but in case you don’t know, here’s a quick and simple guide to figure it out.

  3. Scroll down until you see “Field of View”
  4. Adjust the slider from left to right to set to your desired setting.

What’s the ideal field of view setting?

If you’ve never played with a modified field of view before, it might be best to take things slow. Working your way up will allow you to adjust to the higher FOV so that you’re not thrown into the deep in, so to speak.

In order to have a high FOV, while making sure that you can still see enemies, it’s recommended to keep your adjusted setting at 100. While you can certainly push it all the way up to 120, the former will allow you to experience the changes without it being too difficult to see things at a distance.
