Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek ran into a game-breaking bug while playing Blackout on October 19 and vowed to not play the mode until it’s fixed.

Ever since the release of Black Ops 4 on October 12, Shroud has been pretty much playing nothing but Blackout on stream.

Even though he’s been enjoying his time, especially after a dominating win during Dr Disrepsect’s Code Red tournament, he ran into a new bug that has caused him to stop playing the mode altogether.

While playing the game on October 19, Shroud noticed that he wasn’t able to loot anything from an eliminated enemy despite having room in his inventory.

“It’s just broken then,” Shroud says about the latest bug. “Oh yeah, you’re right. It doesn’t work.”

He continued playing the mode for a few games before someone in his chat had seemingly discovered just what was causing the tricky bug.

“When you get max ammo, that’s when the bug kicks in and you’re fucked,” Shroud told his teammate about the recently uncovered info. “Basically, you kill one team and you can’t loot after that. It’s great.”

It’s at this point that Shroud realizes that the bug is far too important to ignore, saying “I’m not playing that, though, fuck that. That’s stupid.”

Shroud reiterated that he very much wants to play Blackout since he finds the game extremely fun, but he is simply unable to look past the bug.

Shortly after, he updated his stream title to “zombies until they fix blackout looting bug” and stopped playing Blackout.

For the proceeding two hours and counting, Shroud has been playing nothing but multiplayer as he waits for a fix to the popular game mode.

At the time of writing, Treyarch has not spoken out about the issue, but with the latest 1.03 update hitting Friday afternoon, it’s possible we could see a fix for this mode before the day is over.


While no official patch or fix has been released to remedy this issue, someone discovered a temporary fix that Shroud was able to use to get back in and play Blackout normally.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
