Modern Warfare & Warzone glitch makes enemies totally invisible

Modern Warfare and Warzone players have been complaining about a glitch that is rendering their enemies invisible and making it much harder to have a successful game.

Although there wasn’t a major update on July 14, a number of players started to report that they were being killed by seemingly invisible enemies, and couldn’t figure out what was going on.

Of course, in the game you can use certain angles and positions to your advantage and see enemies that can’t see you – but this seems to go one step further.

In Infinity Ward’s last outing, Infinite Warfare, the Phantom character could go invisible with Active Camo… but that isn’t usually an option in Modern Warfare.

While once upon a time you could pop Active Camo to make yourself invisible in Call of Duty, that’s not an option in Modern Warfare or Warzone, but there does seem to be an issue that is preventing enemy character models from appearing on screen.

A number of players had mentioned it throughout the day on July 14, but it became evident that there was a big issue when the below clip started to circulate.

Posting the footage to Reddit, BourbonKing was raiding Zhokov Boneyard when they started getting peppered through the plane they were searching.

Finally, they were taken out and sent to the Gulag, but it was completely unclear where the enemy was – until the killcam popped up.

As it turned out, when Bourbon was finally killed, they saw exactly where the opponent was: and they were directly ahead, stood in the doorway, as clear as day.

While those in the comments seemed unsure over whether it was just a glitch or the player was hacking, it seems unlikely that this is a hack – and if it was, it was a really, really good one.

Players were reporting issues in both Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer, but so far Infinity Ward are yet to make a statement on the glitch but, needless to say, they’ll want to look into it and get it fixed sooner rather than later.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
