Frustrating Warzone bug lets vehicles kill enemies through buildings

Another Warzone bug has come to light that is annoying players, and it involves being killed by vehicles through walls with absolutely no chance to counter.

Vehicles are already well-established as one of the most powerful weapons in the game. Although they were probably intended purely to help with rotations and getting across the map, they’ve become a favored tool for simply mowing down any enemies in your way.

If this wasn’t frustrating enough, it appears that vehicles – and the large truck most persistently – have powers we previously hadn’t discovered, and the bug is becoming quite a nuisance.

The inclusion of vehicles was likely done with only the best intentions, but things seem to have gone south.

While you might think that being inside a building and tucked away is one of your best chances at avoiding being spotted or ran into by a truck driver, it turns out that even brick walls can’t protect you.

Many Warzone players have complained to Activision about the issue at this point and will be desperately hoping for a fix to come, as showcased in this clip, where the truck clearly didn’t make contact with the player it killed.

It’s not only standing buildings that trucks can kill through, either. It appears there isn’t much that can stop it, as Call of Duty League commentator Thomas ‘Chance’ Ashworth showed in a clip he posted to Twitter on April 1, in which he is looting a plane and someone simply rams into the side of it, downing Chance who was left in complete disbelief.

“Uh, f**king excuse me?” he asks in shock after being downed. “I’m in an airplane!”

Clearly there is an issue with vehicles, and trucks in particular, and there’s no doubt Infinity Ward have already seen clips such as these and will be planning to address the bug imminently.

Until then, though, maybe try to protect yourself in the upper floors of buildings if you think there’s a truck around.

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
