Modern Warfare bug exposes Rust campers’ favorite glitched spot

Modern Warfare players have noticed a bug on Rust which could explain why so many campers are opting to stay put near the big oil tanker on the east side of the map.

The tight-knit combat of Rust has been an iconic part of the Modern Warfare series. But the latest iteration of the map has a glaring weakness that lets players peer through one of the largest single objects on display.

Getting close to the tanker on the southeast section of the squared battlefield will give players the chance to open up the sightlines by seeing through the oil tank.

“Bug on Rust that needs exterminating,” user ‘RaZeFX’ said after showing the bug they had found.

This glitch has popped in the game before. Though the issue seems to be giving players with lower graphics settings an advantage, as those with max settings reportedly can’t see through the tank.

The glitch opens up a long sight line on Rust, even though you can’t shoot through it.

Furthermore, RaZeFX explained that his field of view (FOV) was at 110 with everything else being “set to its lowest possible setting, and anti-aliasing is disabled with vsync enabled.”

The player was surprised to find the bug, seeing as it gave them a “clear view” of their opponents as they were walking up to their position.

“I was leaning against [the oil tank] to jump out at two guys I heard approaching and then I saw it lol,” they explained. “It gives you a clear view through it.”

There’s a ton of campers on Rust. The unforgiving map forces players to either stay actively moving to stay a step ahead of spawns or nestle and set up camp in a safe corner.

This bug could explain why more players have been opting to stay on that side of the map, but it’s nothing that a quick Semtex or RPG could fix.

Though RaZeFX sees how this spot could be “quite powerful” if it goes unaddressed by the Infinity Ward developers.

If the glitched Rust spot gets enough traction, however, expect the Modern Warfare devs to patch this out as fast as possible to keep players from abusing it in game.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
