Call of Duty players are running into glitches in Warzone that prevents them from refreshing their armor while using the Dead Silence perk. 

Ever since the CoD: Warzone mode was added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, fans of the hugely popular first-person shooter have had more ways to play than ever before. The 150-player battle royale mode has become a ruthless playground for fans who want to transition their usual 5v5 multiplayer skills into the last man standing setting. 

It has been pretty successful already, with over 50 million players diving in for a match, but a new issue has reared its head with using the armor plates that might turn some players away if it isn’t fixed in the near future.

Warzone has been a massive hit with players.

The pretty game-breaking issue was showcased out by Reddit user Thanos-2020 who, after using the Dead Silence perk in Warzone, was unable to add a new armor plate to their body while the perk was active.

As a result, the Redditor’s firefight became even more dangerous than normal, as the character was unable to replenish their shield with another armor plate – with the animation bugging out at times and showing a floating piece of metal.

Though they did manage to take down the enemies regardless of the error, plenty of other players have reported running into similar problems with Dead Silence. 

Some pointed out that it is clearly a bug because if you were not able to replenish your armor while using the perk, a message of some kind would no doubt be displayed on-screen – or you would see it when picking up the perk. 

While members of the CoD: Modern Warfare development team have been active on the subreddit in the past, responding to problems, they haven’t commented on this one.

Whether or not they are aware of it and a fix is coming soon remains to be seen but players will be hoping that the issue is rectified.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
