Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward have confirmed a number of bug fixes will be coming to Warzone and Modern Warfare Season 5 in a near-future update, sorting a host of frustrating issues. 

Despite Warzone’s incredible popularity – hitting 75 million players within 6 months of its release – it has received a fair amount of criticism for hackers and bugs. The former remains pretty pervasive, but Infinity Ward are going out of their way to make it as bug-free as possible.

We saw a rapid patch for an infamous ‘demon gun glitch’ earlier in August, and the developers have now given a series of updates on what players can expect later in Season 5.

Warzone hackers have plagued the game since its launch.

Arguably the most prominent of all the bug fixes confirmed relates to players pulling their parachutes when making the smallest of jumps.

Infinity Ward responded to a clip from streamer TimTheTatman some time ago, and it has now been confirmed via their Trello board that a fix will be coming in a future update.

The glitch has actually been present in Warzone since the game launched, so many players will be relieved to hear that it’s no longer an issue.

Another Warzone specific bug that has been fixed relates to the self-revive ability, that many found was broken following the Season 5 update. The bugs specifically relate to the UI when using self-revive, as it doesn’t show when a player has it, and doesn’t prompt them to use it when downed. Infinity Ward have confirmed this will be fixed.

Similarly, a fix for Quads specifically relating to Most Wanted contracts, with teammates displaying incorrectly on mini-maps will be coming. These are not the only Warzone issues being sorted, but they are arguably the most important.

Quads fixes will en route for those who play Warzone in fours.

In terms of Modern Warfare itself, the most notable fix is coming to the Tracker perk. Players have been noticing the benefits of the Tracker perk after respawning, even when they do not have it equipped. Needless to say, this has been giving significant advantages to certain players, and will be fixed in the next multiplayer update.

Warzone bug fixes coming soon

  • Players have reported seeing Tracker footprints on the ground after respawning, even when they don’t have the perk equipped.
  • Players have reported multiple issues with rank and Battle pass progress, as well as not getting credit for missions and challenges.
  • Tracers lose their impact VFX when the ammunition is changed from the default 5.56 NATO ammunition on the M4A1.
  • Season 5 Week 1 challenge reads: “Call in the Personal UAV Killstreak 7 Times.” Should be written as Personal Radar.
  • While jumping in certain areas of Verdansk, the player’s parachute may open.
  • Yellow highlighting of your name in the Squad widget is missing in BR Buy Back.
  • Players are seeing multiple issues with self revive UI after our latest update.
  • Player’s mini-map icon had both the downed icon and arrow when the player started the Most Wanted contract in BR Quads.

For a full run-down of all the bugs Infinity Ward are tracking, you can check out their dedicated Modern Warfare and Warzone Trello board.

In terms of when they will be fixed, there were no specifics available. However, we have seen significant updates go out on Tuesdays for Warzone, so the 25th August looks like a potential date.

We will, of course, provide you all the patch notes when the games’ next updates go live.

NICKMERCS creates deadly RAM-7 Warzone loadout for all ranges

Twitch and YouTube star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has shown off his pretty interesting Ram-7 loadout for Warzone as players have started experimenting with different weapons. 

Ever since Warzone released, players have constantly fiddled around with their loadouts to try and get something that works for their playstyle but also keeps up with the ever-changing meta. 

With the switch to Black Ops Cold War, the meta has somewhat shifted away from the original weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but some players have been going back to them – especially in terms of the assault rifles. 

We’ve seen new classes for the M4, the Kilo 141, as well as Amax CR-56, but now NICKMERCS has been trying out the Ram-7 again, and he’s got a pretty spicy class.

The RAM-7 can be tough to control without the right attachments.

As Nick notes, the Ram-7 was, at one point, the strongest assault rifle in Warzone but updates saw it displaced by others. Yet, it’s still pretty nice in terms of the damage it deals and not being incredibly slow to carry. 

“It’s a very, very strong assault rifle, but it’s kind of hard to control the recoil at distance,” Nick said. “I’ll be honest man, I had never used the Ram-7 ironsight in Warzone… this things slaps.”

With his setup, Nick has boosted the accuracy, range, and control somewhat, but the mobility does take a hit.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FSS Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammo: 50-round mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Now, whether or not the weapon will displace some others and cement its place in the meta is anyone guess. However, it’s still not as quick as weapons like the FFAR and Mac-10, so it might take another round of nerfs and buffs to really get the Ram-7 up there. 

Yet, Nick’s setup is a pretty nice close to mid-range setup, and worth messing around with if you’re looking for something new.
