Game-breaking armor bug in Warzone makes you an easy kill

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. 

Potential game breaking bug. Please fix. I had Dead Silence active during a fight and it wouldn’t let me apply amour plates. from CODWarzone

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.
