Bugs are common in competitive games, and usually patches can fix them without much disruption to things. But it’s not very often that a major bug is discovered literally days before a competitive esports final.
Karma took it upon himself to warn others of the glitch, after it was found by other major CoD esports players.
What is the vision pulse bug?
In a tweet that could be confusing to those unaware of the bug, Karma said: “if you use any type of camo at Miami I’m shooting sensor darts at you”.
CWL analyst Anthony Wheeler replied with a single question mark, obviously baffled as to why the CoD pro would be mad at players using camouflage.

Karma then explained that users that equip camo, facepaint, or special characters will not appear on vision and will disappear – obviously something that is not ideal for players competing in the CWL Finals.
If you have any camo or facepaint or special character you won't appear on vision / disappear

The bug was supposedly found by Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price and Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil, according to fellow OpTic teammate Ian ‘Crimsix‘ Porter.
His tweet was in reply to a signal boost of the glitch by Chris ‘Parasite‘ Duarte, who said: “If you want vision pulse to not bug out take off all ur camos, outfits, face paints etc all customizations. RT”

This is quite a major bug, especially this close to the Finals, which are being held in Miami on July 19th to the 21st. Hopefully it can be fixed before then, although patches can take time, so fingers crossed.
