OpTic’s Crimsix suffers bizarre spawn bug during Black Ops 4 scrims

CoD pro Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter suffered the same strange spawn bug which FaZe Clan’s ZooMaa previously experienced, during a scrim match vs Team Envy.

OpTic Gaming’s de facto in game leader was in the thick of the action, as they held a 139-63 lead over Envy, when all of a sudden the game handed him a death he could do nothing about.

The glitch seems to occur randomly, and either spawns the player next to the edge of the map facing outwards, or, in this case, spawns them completely off the map entirely.

While there has been plenty of bugs fixed already, and others which are persistent but Treyarch have acknowledged (such as the infamous teammate/enemy glitch), this one has been a recurring issue.

It was first seen in a pro level match when FaZe Clan’s Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto spawned, immediately hit sprint by habit, and found himself sprinting off the side the map Payload, during a scrim vs eUnited.

And now, Crimsix suffered a similar fate, this time on Summit, another map conviently placed in the top of a snowy mountainside.

While so far this glitch has only occurred in completely inconsequential scrims, if it were to happen during a tournament match – or even at a major event – it would cause some serious problems.

Developers Treyarch have already rolled out numerous spawn improvements in updates, although they do not give specifics, so it is unclear if they have made attempts to resolve this problem.

For now, players will have to be more mindful of their spawn locations, and make their best attempt to make sure they are facing inwards on the map, although there wasn’t anything Crimsix could have done on this occasion to save himself.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
