Game-breaking Warzone glitch is letting players pick up guns in Gulag

A Call of Duty: Warzone player found weapons he could pick up in the Gulag, thanks to a glitch that could be labeled as game-breaking.

The Gulag is one of several novelties that Infinity Ward introduced to the battle royale genre with Warzone, giving players the ability to fight for the chance to respawn after getting eliminated.

Usually, the way it works is that two players will spawn in with a predetermined class, usually featuring either a pistol or shotgun, and the user left standing gets to load back into the match.

However, one player was shocked to come across a pile of weapons in his end of the Gulag, which they were able to actually pick up, equip, and use.

Reddit user Kasperinoz posted a clip on March 27 showing this glitch in action. After waiting in the observation deck, they spawned into the 1v1 arena and noticed a green-level MP7 and Model 680 shotgun laying in the corner, along with $300 Cash.

The player quickly picked them up, and although the video doesn’t last long enough to show what happened afterwards, both guns looked ready for use.

Judging by the title of the post, the Redditor was confused as to whether this was the result of a bug or if it was actually a new feature added by Infinity Ward.

Thankfully, this isn’t some secret new thing that the devs implemented in the most recent update. Instead, this is probably caused by someone dying near that area in the regular match, and their inventory, including the Cash, glitching into the Gulag.

For those who aren’t aware, the Gulag is also a visitable location on the Warzone map, located in the lowest level of Prison, so that is definitely a possibility.

Infinity WardHaving access to more powerful weapons in the Gulag is an obvious concern until this Warzone glitch gets fixed.

However, that doesn’t mean this issue shouldn’t be concerning to players, especially since it means that anyone could be susceptible to coming up against a powerful weapon during the 1v1 fight that they themselves don’t have access to.

Infinity Ward will likely want to get this patched up as soon as possible before it becomes too big of a problem and starts affecting actual competitive matches, such as Warzone Wednesday and Twitch Rivals.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
