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.

OpTic Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout ahead of CDL launch

The competitive Call of Duty season is almost upon us, with the CDL launching on January 23, and Envoy’s AK74u could prove one of the most important in getting OpTic Chicago some all-important championship wins.

The AK74u is the go-to SMG for all competitive Black Ops Cold War players. While the MP5 was the main one when the game first dropped, a subsequent nerf saw the 74u take top spot and maintain it ever since.

While Envoy’s original loadout back in November was impressive, this one is a complete change-up, and seems to be the meta build for most top pros who run it.

Taking to Nuketown ‘84 for a 1v1 against teammate FormaL, both were using the AK74u — and it absolutely shreds.

The AK74u is the best-in-class SMG.

As mentioned, this looks to be the meta build for most pros, but Envoy is by far one of the most impressive SMG players in the Call of Duty League, so it definitely looks great in his hands.

Here’s the attachments Envoy uses on the gun:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.45
  • Barrel: 9.3” Extended
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap

Attachments at 8:40

If you’re looking to maximize your abilities with an SMG in hand, Envoy is one of the best people to look at, and with the launch of League Play in BOCW seemingly imminent, now’s the perfect time to get used to this build.

This may look slightly different from what you see in public matches, with certain attachments banned or not viable in a competitive space, so it’s well worth familiarizing yourself with.

Whether or not this remains the meta throughout the year isn’t yet known; we expect a number of weapon balancing changes throughout the year, but how this affects the 74u isn’t clear.
