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.

FaZe Blaze sets absurd Zombies world record in Black Ops Cold War

Zombies has returned to Call of Duty with Black Ops Cold War’s release and FaZe Clan’s Blaze, in a duo with Ghostzy, has overcome days of crashes to set an insane record of 328 rounds.

Lucas ‘Blaze’ Mosing has a huge footprint on social media, with 3.5 million YouTube subscribers and 1.6 million Twitter followers. Ever since Black Ops Cold War dropped into the public’s hands on November 13, his Twitch numbers have skyrocketed as well.

As Blaze continues to up the ante for Zombies content, the streamer has received over 130,000 new followers on Twitch in the past month. Now, he sits at just above 589,000 Twitch followers, with a large chunk simply intrigued by his efforts to set Zombies world records.

Those record runs have been shut down by game crashes on numerous occasions, but the most recent effort went unimpeded. Grouped with fellow streamer, Ghostzy, the FaZe star managed to surpass the former record attempts and survive well past “Round Zero,” also known as Round 256.

With how many crashes people have been experiencing as they drive their Ray Guns and punch-packed weapons into the later rounds of Zombies matches, hitting 328 rounds is pretty wild. While Blaze explained that they were only a few rounds past the former record holder, the duo was nonetheless ecstatic and their mark will be hard to surpass.

To set this high bar, both players used the “Ring of Fire” Field Upgrade, which creates a small perimeter around the duo, boosting their damage and burning enemies within it. With excellent comms and comfortable management over their Cymbal Monkeys, the two provide an excellent tutorial for new Zombies players.

And, as the record was being reached, Blaze couldn’t help but give in to a wholesome sense of camaraderie. Like best friends in a bath house, the streamer took a moment to cheerfully relax and celebrate the moment with his roommate. 

Blaze and Ghostzy met each other randomly – as described by the latter in a TikTok comment – and an immediate Zombies bond was formed. Weeks later, they have overcome the 326-round world record that two other duos were tied at.

Unfortunately, it appears that a Spanish duo of ‘hydrashitoo’ and ‘juanlokoo’ have taken the Zombies leaderboard by storm at the exact same time.

The duo, playing on PC, have set a shocking record of 365 and, thus far, it doesn’t appear that Blaze or Ghostzy are aware of how much higher the bar has been raised.
