Frustrating Warzone cheaters are getting easy kills by hiding in walls

Cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone are getting easy kills to their name by glitching into walls, letting them freely walk within a structure’s barriers to pick people off.

There have been a few sightings of this happening around Warzone’s City of Verdansk’s Port, inside of the two-story ‘Gardar’ building. The exploit has been giving cheaters a way to eliminate unsuspecting players without a chance for a counter-play.

One of the worst things about this cheat is that it doesn’t appear to be the work of a third-party hack. By using an exploit to glitch into the walls, it appears as if any player can squeak their way inside of the building’s parameters.

What results from the exploit is a permanently shielded player with the ability to not only see into the many rooms and hallways of the building, but also have the ability to shoot into them.

From user ‘Cheeky-Bean’s perspective, it looked as if they had walked into an invisible turret mounted onto the ceiling since he was greeted with a barrage of gunfire moments after entering the structure’s open doors.

But the kill-cam moments after their demise revealed a pair of players making quick work of anyone in or around the building from within the walls.

“In order to clip into walls like we keep seeing, they are abusing glitches that are inside of everyone’s game,” user ‘sir_lurkzalot’ said in response to the clip. “They’re due to an oversight of the developers. Now that people have figured out how to glitch into one or two places they’re seeing if the same methods work in other places.”

This is something that the Warzone community would like to see patched up, seeing as it makes it nearly impossible to beat players using the exploit sans avoiding buildings all together.

But the exploit is just one instance of ways players have been cheating in Warzone. The problem has gotten so out of hand lately that developers have had to address what they’re doing to get rid of hackers.

With the team at Infinity Ward working to make progress on the numerous issues in Warzone, hopefully at least one of their solutions will prevent players from exploiting this problematic wall glitch.

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.

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.
