Black Ops 4 Zombies fans might have a reason to dive into Blackout now that the characters have been released for the game’s battle royale mode.

Simply going for wins in Blackout isn’t all that players can do as Treyarch have included challenge sets that unlock special characters to use in the mode.

The Specialists from the Multiplayer mode were the first to be included, but now the Zombies characters have been added to the mix with the massive November 6 update, giving players even more to unlock.

Unlike the Specialists challenges, none of these require that players finish the game in a certain placing, which gives the impression that they could be easier.

All of these challenges deal with zombies and the brand-new Blightfather boss found in the Graveyard portion of the map, though, meaning that players have to risk being killed by both the zombies or enemy players to acquire the necessary items.

You can find all the requirements needed for each character down below.

Unlocking Scarlett requires finding the Racing Goggles & Scarf item by killing and looting a zombie or the Blightfather in the Graveyard.

Once the item is acquired, you must find a vehicle and kill a player with that vehicle before finishing the match with the Racing Goggles & Scarf in your inventory.

Diego

Acquiring Diego is probably the easiest of all these character challenges as it involves a simple act that most players do every match.

You must first find the Comic Book item by killing a zombie or the Blightfather and looting their body.

Once you have the item in hand, you have to secure a kill or down with a headshot. Then you simply need to finish the match with the Comic book in your inventory and Diego is yours. 

Shaw

This is where the challenges start to get a bit tougher as Shaw is one of the hardest in the game to obtain.

For this challenge, not only do you need the Alchemy Set item that drops from zombies and the Blightfather, but you must pick up Wraith Fire or Acid Bomb pieces of equipment that can also be found by looting the Blightfather.

Once you have all that, you have to kill two enemies with Wraith Fire or Acid Bomb and then finish the match with the Alchemy Set in your inventory and Shaw will be unlocked at last.

Bruno

Unlocking the French gangster Bruno will, of course, require players to really get their hands dirty.

After picking up the Mug Shot poster item from either a supply drop or the Blightfather, you must kill someone with a melee attack (Clean Up kills do not count!) and then finish the game with the poster in your inventory to unlock the character.

For this one, we recommend finding the Brawler perk since that will be essential to somehow picking up a melee kill outside of the early game when no one has weapons.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
