Infinity Ward respond to Warzone broken building bug

Infinity Ward has responded to a Call of Duty: Warzone bug that allows players to shoot through a window from one side but not the other. 

The third season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare introduced plenty of new content into Warzone – with the most notable coming in the form of a Squads playlist, an increase in price for the Loadout Drop, and new floor loot.

There is still plenty more to come as well, including the previously leaked Snipers and Shottys mode – which has been renamed to ‘Scopes and Scatter Guns’. However, the developers will probably have to roll out a handful of new bug fixes as well, as players have found some spots that are pretty powerful on one side but useless on the other.

Tavorsk District doubles up as a Ground War map and as a part of Warzone.

The issue in question stems from a building in the Tavorsk District – on both Warzone and Ground War – that has a circular window looking out onto a bus. Players can through the window from the outside, by the bus, but returning fire from inside the building will see your bullets disappear.

After calls for a change, Infinity Ward’s art director Joel ‘ArtPeasant’ Emslie stepped up and simply commented “noted” on the Modern Warfare subreddit – confirming that the issue had finally been seen by the developers.

However, other players pointed out that the window can have a mind of its own at times – with the problem occasionally flipping sides, letting players shoot from inside the building but not from the outside. 

Some even went as far as claiming that explosives – grenades and C4 in particular – can’t be thrown through either side at all and will just hang in midair like they’re stuck in a constant loop.

Though, with Infinity Ward now aware of the issue, fans will be hoping that a fix comes sooner rather than later and that they can finally deal damage as intended.

Whether or not the fix is implemented in Warzone before Ground War, or vice versa, though, very much remains to be seen.

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.
