A bizarre Warzone exploit has been found which is seemingly giving players unlimited Cluster Strike killstreaks, possibly through a hack or just a glitch.

Killstreaks have become a staple of Call of Duty multiplayer modes and fans were generally happy to see they would also feature in Modern Warfare’s battle royale, Warzone.

These Warzone killstreaks, which include the likes of UAVs and Precision Airstrikes, can only be found at a Buy Station and are quite situational, as they can cost players a significant amount of cash with each use.

Warzone’s Buy Stations offer plenty of unique killstreaks for players to use in-game.

However, it seems as if some players have found a way around paying for their killstreaks, after it was revealed that an infinite Cluster Strike exploit had been plaguing some matches.

The Cluster Strike killstreak allows players to mark a location on the map before it fires a barrage of missiles down on the surrounding area. They can be particularly useful in targeting enemies on a roof or in the late-game in a tight circle.

Popular YouTuber jackfrags was among the players to fall victim to someone with this bizarre exploit and highlighted just how overpowered it can be.

Near the end of one of his latest matches, jackfrags noticed that an unusual amount of Cluster Strikes had been called in near him as he was trying to make his way to the final circle. The missiles appear to rain down endlessly.

The YouTuber was then sniped out his Tactical Rover and, despite his efforts with a self-revive kit, was quickly finished by the oncoming barrage of missiles.

After spectating the rest of his game and watching this unusual Cluster Strike exploit, he claimed that it was quite likely that the opponent was using hacks to win the game.

“It seems like they’ve just got unlimited Cluster Strikes or something, I think that guy is a hacker and I reckon that shot he took was an aimbot,” he added.

While it is still unclear just what caused this infinite killstreak glitch, it can be devastating in-game and it is likely that the Warzone devs will be looking to get a fix rolled out ASAP.

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. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

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.
