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.

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.

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.
