Game-breaking Warzone glitch lets players hide under Prison

A new glitch has been discovered in Warzone that is allowing players to phase out of the map and hide under Prison — completely invisible to other players in the game.

Wallbreaches and out-of-map glitches have been in Call of Duty for years, but as you might imagine, this is incredibly frustrating when it occurs in Warzone and you’ve been playing upwards of 20 minutes to try and capture a victory in Verdansk.

Around the launch of Season 5, players started to notice that there is a really easy glitch that allows you to get out-of-bounds and under the Prison in the south-east corner of the map — and, naturally, players have started to abuse it.

Its impossible to spot players using the glitch — but they can see everything happening in Prison.

Anyone who plays a lot of Warzone knows that Prison is an incredibly busy POI even at the best of times. It’s full of loot and contracts to complete, making it a great place to go if you’re looking to rack up kills and money.

It also helps that there are often circles that end in or around Prison, meaning you can go there and see the game out, as long as you’ve got the patience to do so.

This new glitch might prompt players to stay away for the foreseeable future, though, as you can literally hide out underneath Prison, completely invisible to everyone else, and still kill enemies through the floor.

Obviously, we won’t be explaining how to do the glitch here, but it’s very easy to do and, as you can see in the below clip, there’s not much you can do if you’re targeted by someone hiding out down there.

Bugs and glitches like these have been in Warzone since its launch, and Infinity Ward usually do a good job of rooting out issues such as these — and this is one they’ll want to get on as soon as possible, to avoid deterring any more players.

Needless to say, we don’t advise trying to use the glitch as it is clearly not an intended feature in the game, and it’ll ruin not only your own game but everyone else’s too.

Black Ops Cold War player hits first prestige without a single kill

An extremely patient Call of Duty player has just reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War, without ever dealing damage to their opponents.

The name of the game with Call of Duty has always been simple. Kill your opponents before they kill you. It’s the core principle for which every other system in the franchise has been built around.

While a majority of players stick to fundamentals and play the game as intended, there’s always some that veer from the path. As gamers are sinking their teeth into Black Ops Cold War, many have reached new heights with the innovative prestige system. Though one player has taken their time in reaching the very first prestige.

They’re not worrying about their KD. They don’t care for weapon camos or powerful attachments. They’re never trying to top the leaderboards. All this player cares about is ending each match with zero kills to their name.

This player reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War without a single kill to their name.

It took a full 37 hours of game time for Reddit user ‘Pilgore1’ to accomplish their goal. Without ever killing another player, they reached the first prestige over the course of 200 games.

Their highest killstreak throughout this effort was a whopping zero. This player literally never acquired a single-elimination, not even accidentally. Instead, they spent their time focusing on other aspects of the game.

Playing the objective and “clearing the sky,” were the key factors that gained this player XP over time. It clearly took longer than the typical prestige, but they still managed to make it happen.

Surprisingly, their overall record was positive despite the lack of slaying power. 102 wins to 83 losses was the final tally. They even had a career-best winning streak of seven games in a row, according to the player.

They used “all three LMGs” with a heavy focus on “vehicle damage” attachments. Moreover, the Engineer perk came in handy as did Cold Blooded. When the skies were clear of enemy streaks and it came time to focus on the objective, however, they simply “[threw their] body on there.”

There’s no telling what drove them to play Call of Duty in such a unique way. Though they still managed to enjoy the process. “I just find doing it fun,” they explained. “I also have a lot, maybe too much, patience, so that helps.”
