Modern Warfare & Warzone update fixes demon gun glitch: Patch notes

Call of Duty Warzone’s demon gun glitch has finally been addressed in a mini Modern Warfare update that also brings a few other tweaks to the game. 

Though Warzone has been a massive success for Call of Duty, there have been a few issues plaguing the battle royale. Some of these involve outright cheating, parts of the map being invisible and crashing the game, as well as players being able to abuse glitched spots to rack up eliminations and wins. 

In recent weeks, the biggest non-cheating issue has revolved around a graphical issue that turns weapons into a strange glitched shape on-screen.

This has been referred to as the demon gun glitch, but it should now be a thing of the past following a new update.

The demon glitch has been causing a lot of stress for Warzone players.

That’s right, Infinity Ward have rolled out a small update, addressing the extremely unusual and annoying glitch as well as a few other problems too. 

On top of the demon gun glitch, the devs have also addressed an issue where hitting ‘play again’ after a game wouldn’t work, as well as another bug that caused the common, floor loot version of the AUG to be invisible.

There are also changes to the normal multiplayer mode with tweaks to map rotation. Search and Destroy on Rust is no longer a thing, while both Arklov Peak and Shipment have been removed from Headquarters. 

With only a few tweaks, you don’t have to worry about a major download – unless you play on Xbox, that is. However, Xbox owners won’t say a huge change in the game’s size on their hard drive. 

The new update clocks in at 1.2GB on PS4, 0.88GB if you are purely a free-to-play Warzone user on PC, 1.83GB if you own Modern Warfare on PC, and 66.3GB on Xbox. The Xbox size, according to the devs, is due to an unforeseen bug. 

The full set of patch notes from the August 14th update are below.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
