Infinity Ward reveal Warzone fixes they’re working on for future updates

There are a number of bugs and issues that need fixing in Call of Duty: Warzone, and Infinity Ward have outlined everything they’re working to address for the battle royale.

Warzone is Call of Duty’s second run at the battle royale genre, following 2018’s Blackout, and it’s taken over the genre for the time being, leaving the likes of Fortnite and Apex Legends in the dust.

However, as with every game that’s just been released and is still in beta, it’s plagued with issues that can hinder the gaming experience – from major bugs to minor hitches.

As part of their effort to maintain good communication with their player-base, Infinity Ward have updated their Modern Warfare Trello page to include Warzone issues as well.

While a good chunk of reported bugs has been fixed, there is still a good amount of them that are in the works, some of which are closer to completion than others.

There are two main areas of focus – fixes that will be coming in a near-future update and issues that are still being investigated, the solutions for which have not yet been determined.

Infinity WardDespite its incredible success, Warzone still has its share of bugs, glitches, and issues.

Fixes coming in future Warzone updates

There are three issues for which Infinity Ward have found fixes for but haven’t implemented them in-game, as they’ll be rolled out in “future updates.”

  • Players who disconnect from a match will not drop any items that they were carrying.
  • Players who are the last to die and attempt to leave the game, they’ll see a ‘your squad can still revive you’ message even though there are no squad mates alive.
  • Players will rarely see full-screen black corruption when naturally progressing through the map.

It’s not clear exactly when these will be addressed in-game, but with Infinity Ward releasing updates almost every week, players should be rest assured knowing that it’ll happen at some point in the coming weeks.

Issues still being investigated

As expected, this section of the Warzone list on Trello is a lot longer than the previous one, especially since more and more of these bugs and glitches seem to be popping up every day.

There are currently seven of these issues – five that are being investigated and one that’s only an open ticket for now, meaning the devs haven’t even given it a look yet.

  • Reports of white flashes of light/VFX when firing since the 3/10 update. This appears in all modes including Warzone.
  • Firing a smoke grenade with the Underbarrel 40mm smokescreen launcher does not emit any smoke from the grenade.
  • Reports of a bug that could kick players from a match if they became stuck on the loading screen.
  • The animation for the player’s character equipping a gas mask will interrupt and block player from deploying their parachute.
  • Reports of players seeing smoke coming from their character model as they move across the map.
  • Option to report players in Warzone is missing.
  • Weapons that have been switched to Single-fire Mode cannot be dropped/swapped for another weapon until switched back to full auto
  • Plunder – Players going into consecutive matches are seeing it end shortly after joining. (not yet being investigated)

Obviously, with how difficult addressing certain issues can be, there’s no timetable for when players can expect these fixes to be implemented. For now, everyone will just have to deal with them until Infinity Ward are able to take action.

Warzone players claim Nuketown Gulag gives unfair advantage to one side

A handful of Call of Duty Warzone players have hit out at the new Nuketown-themed Gulag, claiming it favors one side a bit too much. 

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Warzone has now combined the weapons of both the new game as well as the previous Modern Warfare title.

Even though there’s plenty of new content, including weapons and the Rebirth Island map, but it hasn’t gone down well with every player. There are still complaints about weapons being too overpowered, attachments not working, as well as other general bugs that come from combining the two games. 

Additionally, there’s also a new Gulag – with the showers of the Verdansk prison being done away with, and being replaced by a smaller version of Nuketown. However, players have got complaints about that too.

Players believe that Gulag fights have never been this tricky to win.

With the Modern Warfare showers, players had the same angles on each side, but that’s now changed with Nuketown. It’s now asymmetrical, with more angles to look out for, and Warzone players believe it favors the side where you can shoot through what would be the Welcome to Nuketown sign. 

“40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins,” posted Redditor SamirDando, complaining about the head glitch the car gives players who spawn that side. “That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

Others agreed, adding: “Yeah can’t stand it. The damn car head glitch” and offering up possible changes. “Remove the car, change the plywood to concrete so it can’t be shot through and it’d be alright,” said another.

Yet, one player pointed out that it’s not just the head glitch that’s the problem, but how much room you have to work with. 

“In my opinion, the problem with car spawn isn’t just the head glitch, but also the fact that you can see two lanes from spawn,” noted Reddit user ReADropOfGoldenSun, “I think this could all be fixed if they moved the cardboard just a bit over so you can’t see the middle right off spawn.”

Other players, however, didn’t agree at all, claiming that are easy ways to get around the campers – either by simply hopping up on the balconies on the houses or using grenades.

It seems unlikely that the devs would make major changes to the gulag, unless their data shows that it’s completely broken and ruining the game. That might happen at a later date, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
