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.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

Activision
All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
