Karma explains major Black Ops 4 bug discovered week before CWL Finals

With the Call of Duty World League finals just a week out, OpTic Gaming’s Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow told players about a major bug discovered in Black Ops 4 that could affect the games.

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.

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.

Dr Disrespect explodes after stream snipers ruin charity Warzone event

Dr Disrespect was all set and ready to go in Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 ‘Cracked Creators’ Warzone event, though his run was cut short due to pesky stream snipers that ruined his day.

The latest Warzone event threw elite players and content creators into Verdansk with a unique twist. Rather than forming their own teams, streamers had to pick their Duo from a list of “cracked” players.

From Seth ‘Scump’ Abner to Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier, all of the biggest names were lined up to compete for a good cause. For most of them, the event went smoothly as they squared off with others in Warzone. For Dr Disrespect and his chosen partner ZLaner, things didn’t get off to a good start.

“It’s phony desperation everywhere,” Doc said in his very first round of action.

The pair ran into alleged stream snipers in the very first round, and after the Two-Time was executed out of nowhere he declared, “I’m never playing in another Warzone tournament without a delay, ever.”

Unfortunately for them, things didn’t improve over the next few rounds. Doc and ZLaner were unable to close out a single map win throughout their run in the event. They dropped two maps against Joseph ‘Merk’  DeLuca & Clint ‘Maven’ Evans before falling out of the lower bracket to Trevor May and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper.

“That is it for me today stream,” Doc said the moment their final tournament map came to an end. “I am literally losing brain cells.”

Opposing players had tracked down their location in every map just to be the ones to steal the moment. For the next event, Dr Disrespect assured that the duo will “throw the delay on” to prevent any more stream sniping shenanigans.

“After the first game I checked out,” he admitted.

“The tournament completely took me out of it. Lesson learned. I didn’t think it was gonna be that big of an issue… but it’s a horrifically large issue.”

It didn’t take long before Doc took aim at stream snipers on social media as well. He followed up with a hilariously scathing tweet to put them in their place, listing off insult after insult as only he could.

“Nothin like being stream sniped by a bunch of blonde banged, chubby-cheeked, inward kneed, desperation for attention, purple brace face, unathletic, D- grades, Cheeto bags constantly emptied wannabe gamers… during a charity tournament,” he posted during the Oct. 21 event’s run-time.

Dr Disrespect and ZLaner weren’t the only ones impacted by the problem during the event. Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop also vented his frustrations, after losing every map he played in the Warzone competition as well.

“I’m officially retiring from Warzone tournaments,” he declared on Twitter.

Some Duos were able to have far more luck throughout the day, however. You can catch up on all of the final event results from Hitch’s “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament in our official coverage hub here.
