New Loadout Drops exploit turns Warzone players invisible for free wins

Call of Duty players are encountering an exploit with Loadout Drops in Warzone that turns people invisible; not to be confused with a similar bug that lets operatives become invincible.

The battle royale has been experiencing its fair share of bugs in the past few weeks, and now a two-pronged consequence stemming from Warzone’s latest change to Loadout Drops is breaking the game.

Since players and their teammates can’t die from falling Loadouts anymore, this gives the character model a way to interact with the object as it descends onto the map.

This opens the door for a few glitches that are not starting to pop up in the game. While we’ve recently seen bugs that let players go outside of the Warzone map while shooting at players, this exploit gives players more maneuverability inside the live game.

The bug works by simply calling a Loadout Drop directly on top of your character while staying completely still. Once it makes landfall, if your character doesn’t phase out of the Loadout automatically, then your character should appear invisible to other people.

The exploit has proven to be reproducible during live games. Infinity Ward have yet to respond to the invisibility bug, though it’s unlikely to stay in the battle royale for long.

Until then, people have found that the method can make people invisible for a considerable time, letting them track down opponents without ever seeing them.

There are clips surfacing that show people in close-range corridors seemingly alone, looking for loot, just to be shot by someone they never saw.

Twitch streamer TimTheTatman was surprised that the bug was able to be easily reproduced and can be seen striding alongside his opponent before executing them.

A further test of the bug showed that a teammate with the invisibility bug can still pilot a helicopter and freely switch to the side rail without dropping their disguise.

Battle royale players will wait until the developers address the bug and similar exploits. But until then, be on the lookout for any players actively using the glitch for the purposes of ruining Warzone matches.

How to glitch outside Nuketown ’84 for free kills in Black Ops Cold War

While Nuketown has appeared in more Call of Duty titles than any other map, the new Black Ops Cold War variant has come with a frustrating issue that allows players to break out of the map.

Nuketown has long been a fan favorite in the CoD franchise. The close-quarters map is chaotic from start to finish as players jump right into the action without having to track enemies down. It’s now in its eighth version, though the new iteration has come with a painful exploit.

If you’ve played on an older version of the map before, you’ll likely know every little nook and cranny. Nuketown ‘84 still has one of these little secrets intact as RC-XD users can race around outside the map on a special path.

Typically, this is a good way to get your explosive buddy across to the other side of the map. It can travel safely and emerge without alerting nearby enemies. However, it turns out players can now access this space as well.

This area has only ever been accessible for the tiny vehicle, until now. Players have discovered a way to break through the traditional boundaries and camp outside of the map for some of the easiest kills you’ll ever see.

From this glitched location, you get a clear line of sight to the side of one of the houses. The most broken part of being here though is that your presence doesn’t have any impact on enemy spawns. They can still appear directly in front of you without realizing, leading to some effortless kills.

Dexerto staff personally encountered this issue while playing on PC. There appears to be a location right at the edge of the playable space that avoids the ‘out of bounds’ instakill effect.

Wedging yourself between some cacti and the fence will keep you alive outside of the map. Obviously, this can be shut down after a few kills once players realize your position. However, it could be too little too late.

Treyarch is yet to address this particular issue. However, something so critical is sure to be fixed in the very near future.

In the meantime, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for pesky enemies well outside the map.
