Frustrating Warzone revive bug takes away your weapons

An odd bug in Call of Duty: Warzone is leaving players defenseless after attempting to revive their squadmates, or being revived themselves, as their weapon just totally disappears.

Reviving is a crucial part of Warzone, allowing teammates to bring their ‘downed’ friends back into the fight, and has been used in some way in almost every battle royale game.

In Warzone, it’s a snappy and simple feature, with the player sticking their friend with some kind of syringe to give them the health boost needed to stand and fight again, and saving them a trip to the Gulag.

A syringe is useful for reviving opponents, but useless in a gunfight.

Given how central it is to the gameplay loop, it’s imperative that it works flawlessly – something that can’t be said for reviving recently.

A number of players have reported a serious bug, where if they are interrupted part-way through reviving a teammate, they will be left holding the syringe in their hand, with no option to bring out their firearm again.

It’s possible that the glitch only happens if the teammate is finished while you’re attempting to revive them, as shown in this example.

As the player scarpered for cover, they were dumbfounded to realize that they simply had no option but to lay down and accept their fate, as their M4 had simply disappeared.

Meanwhile, other fans have reported a similar issue, but on the opposite end of the revive. After being helped up by their teammate, this player reports that they too had no weapon.

“A teammate revived me but after being revived I had no gun or hands or anything,” the player explained. “The space where hands or a gun should have been was completely empty.”

It’s not something that features on Modern Warfare’s Trello board of known issues, so either Infinity Ward are not yet aware, or the bug is too rare for them to be monitoring at this stage.

But, even if it doesn’t happen every time, it’s a serious enough issue that the developers will definitely want to straighten things out sooner rather than later.

Hilarious Black Ops Cold War bug literally breaks Fireteam Dirty Bomb

A game-breaking Black Ops Cold War bug is suspending players above the map on Fireteam Dirty Bomb, rendering them useless for the entire match.

As with any new release, Black Ops Cold War has had its fair share of bugs and glitches. From players falling through the map to a permanent thermal overlay, its obvious Treyarch overlooked a few elements of the game before releasing the title.

However, if a bug is not game-breaking, players will usually laugh it off and let it go. It’s only when a glitch renders players completely useless that a bug starts to become more frustrating than funny.

Well, that’s exactly the type of bug some players are experiencing on Fireteam Dirty Bomb and it’s fair to say they’re not pleased about it.

Fireteam Dirty Bomb is the new mode released with Black Ops Cold War.

Game-breaking bug suspends players above the map

A video posted to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit reveals a game-breaking bug occurring on Fireteam Dirty Bomb. The glitch suspends the players above the map for the entire match with them unable to move or participate.

On top of this, it appears the entire game mode is broken with teams being bigger than they’re are supposed to be and textures not loading in.

As you can see, the players are left floating above the map and are audibly frustrated at the issue. One of them even states: “I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game.”

It’s worth noting the players can scope down onto the map below but they’re completely locked in place. Attempting to run will trigger the animation but no movement will occur.

Glitches can be entertaining in certain titles, especially when they do not heavily impact the gameplay experience. However, in competitive games like Call of Duty, a game-breaking bug can be extremely frustrating.

Fingers crossed Treyarch get this bug fixed as soon as possible so players don’t have to continue spectating the game from above the map.
