Popular Twitch star, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has explained his two primary concerns about Modern Warfare, but has still labeled it the “Best Call of Duty ever.”

The much-anticipated release of Call of Duty’s upcoming title saw many of the top streamers on Twitch trying their hand at the Modern Warfare beta.

Among those testing the game early was former CS:GO pro, shroud, who previously got the chance to experience Modern Warfare during the official multiplayer reveal.

TWITCH:SHROUDShroud has some concerns about the upcoming Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare.

Best CoD ever?

After playing multiple hours of the Modern Warfare beta, shroud claimed that it was one of the best Call of Duty titles, naming his highlight video “Best CoD Ever.”

Shroud demonstrated just how good he can be at any game he tries and pulled off some incredible plays in the stream highlights video showing off why he’s known for his mechanical skill in FPS titles.

Although shroud clearly enjoyed the early look at the upcoming CoD’s multiplayer game modes, he revealed that he had some concerns about the current state of the game and highlighted some issues that would need to be addressed before the game launches on October 25.

Shroud’s 2 Modern Warfare complaints

Shroud highlighted his two main concerns were screen shaking and audio. He explained that footsteps could often be difficult to hear with the amount of background noise, although he later praised the game for how smooth it ran, despite these issues.

“I wish there was less screen shake, I won’t talk about the beta bugs because I’m sure they’ll get fixed.” the streamer explained, detailing some of his concerns, “Screen shake and noise, there’s so much noise everything is so loud footsteps are nearly impossible to hear. The game feels good though.”

Over the course of the Modern Warfare beta, developers Infinity Ward have already made quick changes to the game following player’s feedback and concerns, such as the minimap change, so it is likely that some of shroud’s concerns will be addressed before release.

The cross-platform open beta is set to finish up on September 22 and fans of the new Call of Duty will have to wait as it won’t be available until the official release on October 25.

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. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

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.
