Modern Warfare players want a fix to frustrating Capture the Flag issue

Modern Warfare players are encountering a strange glitch that’s preventing them from returning dropped flags in CTF when they’re holding the objective.

Even though players have been able to recover a dropped flag while hauling the enemy’s before, the bug can put flag carriers in a precarious situation since it doesn’t give them a way to unload the objective at its place.

In Capture the Flag, you’re only able to capture a point for your team if you bring the enemy’s flag to base and link up with your own – making the glitch a costly error in tight situations.

Players have been running into trouble when trying to return their flag in Modern Warfare.

A gameplay clip from Reddit user ‘bluefishpoop’ shows the bug at work since the player managed to sneak their objective from the enemy team but was stopped in their tracks moments later.

En route to their spawn, they came across the enemy flag carrier. After notching a quick double kill, they ran over their flag to return it to their base but the game was not registering the action.

Instead, they tried to run over it a few times before giving up on the endeavor, since they were now taking shots from enemies who managed to catch up to the player.

CTF: Allow Flag Carrier To Return Dropped Flag from modernwarfare

“You used to be able to do this,” they explained. “When playing CTF and you are carrying the enemy flag, if you try and return your team flag that has been dropped, you can’t… In the past when carrying the enemy flag, I’ve killed the opposing team flag carrier, returned the flag and went on to cap. That is no longer possible.”

There was no mention of a change like that in the latest March 3 patch notes, but that hasn’t stopped more people from coming across the strange bug.

“Yes thank you for this,” user ‘JuggxFinesse’ said in response to the clip. “It’s been happening a lot lately to me too. Definitely a bug.”

The Modern Warfare player ran over their own flag multiple times, but it didn’t return to its base.

CTF is a hectic mode where teamfights devolve into mad scrambles for the flag. A lot of the time, the difference between capping a flag and watching an opponent make their escape with your flag can happen in a matter seconds.

If the bug keeps popping up then it could be something Infinity Ward moves quick on to keep it from affecting more Modern Warfare players.

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.

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.
