Call of Duty data miner and YouTuber ‘TheGamingRevolution’ has revealed that new files hinting at a multiplayer mode were found within Modern Warfare 2 Remastered’s campaign.

While the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been extremely successful, particularly with the addition of Warzone, plenty of fans were still hoping for more from the classic CoD franchise.

After rumors began spreading around MW2 returning with a remaster in 2018, it was finally released on March 30, however, many nostalgic CoD fans were disappointed for there not to be a remastered multiplayer mode as well.

Multiplayer files in Campaign

Prominent Call of Duty leaker TheGamingRevolution, who has correctly shared leaks on the remastered title in the past, revealed in his latest video that there were a lot of clues for a multiplayer mode found in the remastered campaign’s files.

The YouTuber first highlighted that the download size itself was too big for just the campaign release, adding, “The game is 65gb on PC so obviously they left in a bunch of the multiplayer stuff they were working on within the files of the game.” The PC version of MW2 Remastered was made available on April 30, so files have only been uncovered now.

TheGamingRevolution then shared some images of the game files. They reference custom classes, game modes, leaderboards, Prestiges, and even some new camos such as Dark Matter and Diamond that were not previously available in Modern Warfare 2.

TGR continued to highlight some more of the references found, with all of the game modes and perks listed as well as a mention of a season pass, similar to one currently available in Modern Warfare.

While there was supposedly much more hidden in the campaign’s download, he shared that a multiplayer exe application file was also found in the game files by fellow leaker GunofTZ, suggesting that they had been working on a remastered multiplayer at some point.

Although files were reported to have been found it is unclear if they have any intention of releasing multiplayer in the future or if these files were just left there after Activision previously announced that a multiplayer mode was unlikely.

TheGamingRevolution revealed that while he is unsure of whether or not this will be released, he does not think it will be anytime soon over fears of splitting the player base with the latest title, Modern Warfare.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
