Call of Duty players have been running into an issue that's seeing them spawn underneath the map and instantly die in Modern Warfare, though, nobody can explain why.

The launch of the newest installment to popular Call of Duty subseries came all the way back in October, and while players have been enjoying the new content in multiplayer thanks to the battle pass and new seasons, there have been a few problems. 

Players have run into bugs that have stopped them playing the game and needing to redownload several files, exploits with getting an “easy nuke,” and even glitches that turns those who are using the Ghost operator invisible. Yet, one unexplainable issue has been rearing its head – forcing players to spawn under the map after dying.

Modern Warfare has had plenty of issues since its launch back in October.

The problem was pointed out by Reddit user AyeFreddyB, who posted a video from a recent game of theirs on the Gun Runner map. 

Poking fun at their camping style of play, the Redditor showed that they had been sat on the rafters above the Munitions Depot when they were picked off by a longshot from the metal containers. As the respawn counter ticked down, AyeFreddyB was set to be flipped to the other side of the map, though that didn’t happen.

As they respawned, the Redditor was immediately placed underneath the map and sent back to the respawn menu as they died almost instantly.

Some commenters joked that AyeFreddyB got what they deserved for camping, but it’s clearly something that shouldn’t be happening in Modern Warfare.

Members of the Infinity Ward team are active on the subreddit but, as of writing, have responded to the issue so it remains to be as to whether or not they are aware of it. If they are, players will be hoping that a fix for the issue isn’t too far away.
