‘Groundbreaking’ Warzone glitch completely deletes chunks of Verdansk

Verdansk could transform into a nightmarish map the next time you drop in for a Warzone session, as a new glitch is completely removing huge chunks of land.

If you’ve been playing Warzone lately, you may have encountered a number of all-new issues in Season 4. Some players have been dropping in without a trace, while others have been using broken weapons with any attachment in the game.

On top of these problems, simply making it to the ground is becoming more of a challenge as the weeks go by. Players have just begun noticing an absurd texture glitch that outright deletes huge sections of the map. 

While the ground all but disappears, many buildings and trees seem to vanish as well. The entirety of Verdansk comes across as a jumbled mess of bits and pieces.

“This is actually potato mode right now,” popular Twitch streamer ‘xcaliz0rz’ joked upon dropping into a Quads matchup. The glitch was so impactful that they couldn’t even read the text above locations while floating down into Verdansk.

As they moved closer to the ground, various sections popped in and out while textures continued to glitch like never before. “Oh these are trees,” they explained while hilariously flying past random patches of green in the sky.

Unfortunately, the issues persisted long after landing as well. Even with boots technically on the ground, there was rarely a textured ground underneath them at all.

The issue appeared to strike at random, as teammates in the group were able to see Verdansk just fine. So if you’re playing on PC, there’s a chance that a similar bug could drop you into a mostly untextured version of the map sometime soon.

Their character was supposedly in the Barakett Promenade area, though you would never have known thanks to the glitch.

This certainly isn’t the first time that texture issues have bogged down the battle royale experience. At least this streamer was able to stay on the map. Others in the past have been dropped all the way through the map and to their deaths.

Warzone’s latest patch only just arrived on June 23. However, it’s likely that Infinity Ward will look to squash this truly ‘groundbreaking’ bug with the next big update.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
