Summit1g’s molotov curse strikes again after Warzone shield glitch

Twitch star Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar fell victim to yet another Molotov mistake after he accidentally engulfed himself in flames because he was unable to use armor and heals in Call of Duty: Warzone. 

Long-time fans of Summit will know that he has a bit of an up-and-down relationship with throwing Molotovs – no matter what game he is playing. It all stems from his infamous mistake while playing at DreamHack Austin for Splyce’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team when he killed himself with his own Molotov as they were on the edge of capturing a victory.

Since then, the mistake has haunted him in games like CS:GO, Call of Duty, and even Escape From Tarkov – though he did get a bit of revenge when he got a direct kill with the flames in a CS:GO game in August. Despite that, it appears that he still can’t escape making the same mistakes.

Summit1g is one of Twitch’s most popular variety streamers.

During his March 15 stream, the former CS:GO player had been playing matches of the newly-released Warzone battle royale when he was downed by an enemy but received a pick-up instead of heading to the Gulag.

Upon getting back to his feet though, Summit was unable to use the armor he had collected in order to give himself a health boost. With the glitch proving to be pretty annoying, he and his teammates had the bright idea to have him be knocked once again to try and see if that fixed things.

However as the streamer had no grenades in his arsenal, he had to find one via floor loot. He quickly stumbled across a Molotov and tried to down himself and scoot out of the flames so he could be revived.

Instead, Summit didn’t escape the fire and found himself headed to the Gulag. Once he realized the mistake he made, the popular streamer threw his head in his hands as his teammates and viewers fell about themselves laughing.

Of course, it was probably the right idea from Summit and his squad to try and counter the glitch by heading back down, but dying to his own Molotov made the whole thing pretty comical for everyone involved. 

No matter how far he tries to distance himself from the mistake, the 1G curse always finds a way to get the last laugh.

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.
