Joe Cecot, Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at Infinity Ward, has responded to a bizarre reloading bug in Call of Duty: Warzone, brought to his attention to by FaZe Clan’s Pamaj and CDL caster Maven. 

Call of Duty: Warzone’s most recent patch went live on May 18, with multiple significant changes coming to Verdansk. The patch has seen brand new bunkers come to life in Warzone, alongside cryptic teasers for an upcoming in-game event.

However, any large patch was bound to bring new bugs to Call of Duty: Warzone, with multiple players reporting smaller issues as a result of the May 18 update.

The May 18 update saw the Gulag’s weapon pool change.

Among latency and connection problems, some players have reported a bug that prevents certain weapons from successfully reloading.

Prominent FaZe Clan sniper Austin ‘Pamaj’ Pamajewon posted a clip of the HDR sniper failing to reload in Warzone. Despite the animation completing nearly every time, the gun remains with 1 bullet in the magazine.

Clint ‘Maven’ Evans, caster for the Call of Duty League, replied to say he’d experienced the same issues, and it seems to be related to when players use the Sleight of Hand perk to speed up reloads.

He said that since changing to the extended 7-round mags on the HDR, he has not experienced the issue nearly as frequently.

Thankfully, Infinity Ward dev Joe Cecot was on hand to provide an update from Warzone’s developers. “We’re on this [bug],” he said. “Reproduced in dev environment. Thank you”.

Reproducing the issue in a developer environment will allow Infinity Ward to isolate the issue and code a fix.

Given the progress of a fix and Cecot’s response, we can expect to see a patch coming for the reload issue in Warzone’s next update. Going off past updates this looks likely to be a Tuesday, probably the 26th May, although we will confirm this with official patch notes as soon as possible.

Rapper turned popular Twitch streamer Soulja Boy went on a hilarious rant-like victory speech after he dominated the opposition in a match of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

After loading into the Crossroads map for a little free for all action, the rapper took no prisoners, destroying the other members of the lobby with ease.

By the time Soulja landed the final kill bringing his score to 30, the player back in second place had a mere 22 making the streamer’s performance even crazier.

Soulja himself was over the moon with his play and boasted his insane skills in an epic speech where he shouted at the top of his lungs.

Soulja Boy pops off in Cold War
Soulja Boy was hyped after winning the round.

“Let’s f**king go! I’m in beast mode! I’m at f**king beast mode!” he screamed in glory. “Stop playin’ with me! That’s what I do! When I get in that mode!”

As the 30-year-old continued his hyped speech, the “Best Play” was being shown in the background documenting the streamer’s series of frags.

Throughout the clip, Soulja manages to pick up three kills in quick succession padding his lead. Amusingly, some in his chat thought that the game was too dominant and he was playing against AI.

“Of course when a [person] winning they’re going to say it’s bots!” he smirked. “I’m so motherf***ing raw I make these [people] look like bots! Look up them Gamer Tags and DM then and ask them if they’re bots!”

Needless to say, Soulja Boy’s confidence was really something else and being able to back up the trash talk with big wins just makes it so much sweeter.

Of course, if you want, you can use Soulja’s loadout in your own games and see if it makes you pop off as hard as him. For his primary weapon, he opts for the MP5 with the Duckbill Choke, Millstop Reflex, +22 extended, 6RND Tube and Steady Aim Laser.

Soulja Boy was making opponents look like bots from the campaign.

His secondary is the Hauer 77. For equipment, he opts for stuns, semtex, and proximity mine. Finally, for perks and Wildcard he uses Paranoia, Gearhead and Ghost equipped with Danger Close.

Give it a shot and see if you can get on Soulja Boy’s level.
