Frustrating Warzone Season 5 bug makes players invincible in the Stadium

While Season 5 of Warzone opened up the Stadium, turning it into one of the most popular hotspots in Verdansk, a frustrating issue is seeing teams gunned down by invincible enemies.

After weeks of teasers, Infinity Ward finally opened the Stadium with the launch of Warzone’s fifth season. The explosive opening cinematic tore the roof off and allowed players to drop inside for the first time.

It quickly became the most popular landing spot in Verdansk with plenty of loot up for grabs. The newly revamped location also came with its own unique easter egg that the community quickly solved.

While dozens of players drop here every single match, there’s a frustrating new reason to avoid the hotspot. An old exploit has returned to the Warzone fray, with the Stadium now giving certain Operators the power of invincibility.

The Stadium is now a huge playable space, but a new exploit could have you avoiding the location for now.

Verdansk Stadium is a massive chunk of the map. The multi-level facility can be approached from any angle with tons of items scattered throughout. However, you’ll need to be extra vigilant when walking through this point of interest moving forward.

Certain pillars within the stadium can be broken into thanks to a familiar exploit that plagued Warzone’s earlier seasons. Enemies could be hiding inside of a wall just waiting for you to run around the corner.

Call of Duty League commentator Joe ‘MerK’ DeLuca learned this the hard way during an August 9 Twitch stream. Almost ziplining out of the Stadium, the CoD veteran was left speechless as he was gunned down in the blink of an eye.

Seemingly out of nowhere, damage was coming through and MerK had barely a second to react. With his mouth wide open in shock, he watched the killcam to discover his opponent was actually inside a wall right next to him.

Not only was the enemy immune to return fire, but they were invisible as well, save for a gun barely peeking out of the wall.

This invincibility exploit can be replicated in a number of spots across the map too. Stadium is the most popular location for now, however, so expect to see it more often than not at this particular site.

Enemies have to remain in this glitched position for the entire game. So there are ways around the issue if you’re able to spot cheaters out early. In the meantime, try to steer clear of the Stadium until a patch is released to address the issue.

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War minimum PC specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit or higher
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 50GB for MP only, 175GB for all game modes
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670/Geforce GTX 1650/Radeon HD 7950

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core I5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970/GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390/AMD RX 580

Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
