Secret Warzone feature might help you find campers without UAV

While not confirmed, there might be a hidden feature in Call of Duty: Warzone that gives away the position of players on the map, without needing any special equipment or killstreaks.

Knowledge is power in most battle royale games, and especially Warzone, as knowing where enemy players and teams are can really tilt the odds in your favor.

There are several ways to gain this sort of information – one can use a UAV, Heartbeat Sensor, or even one of those Recon Drone Field Upgrades no one ever picks up.

However, there might be another method, one that doesn’t require the use of anything except for your eyes, and it has to do with birds. Yes, the very same birds that are always flying around and confusing players into thinking they’re enemies dropping down from the sky.

Apparently, when a flock of birds can be seen soar into the air from the same spot, that could mean an opposing player or team is moving around in that general area.

Yesterday I learned that birds can give away your position from CODWarzone

As you can see, the player here spots a dozen or so of birds rise into the air from just behind a ridge on the horizon, the same way they would in real life if someone were to disturb their peace.

Keeping an eye on that area, ‘Noahthegoofy’ gets his patience rewarded when an enemy miraculously appears and immediately gets gunned down for what turned out to be a free kill.

You can even see him pull out a Heartbeat Sensor and not get a ping, which means that the opponent was using Ghost, but the perk appears to not be good enough to counter birds.

Infinity WardThere are a lot of places to hide on the Warzone map, and birds might be the secret to finding those campers.

Since there’s no official record of this being an actual feature in Warzone, there is a big question as to whether the player made a crazy discovery or if it was a giant coincidence. Some in the comments section corroborated the finding, claiming that they too had similar experiences.

However, there were also a few who said that they actively looked for flocks of birds rising to the air but couldn’t find any enemies in the vicinity, leading them to assume that they’re just random occurrence or something having to do with the gas coming in, as opposed to there being any players nearby.

Either way, it might be something worth looking into during future Warzone games; you never know when it could come in handy.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
