Terrifying Warzone glitch sends trucks flying with no way to stop them

Trucks might be the most terrifying thing in Warzone moving forward as a ridiculous glitch is lifting them off the ground and launching them towards players.

While more than 30 million players around the world get accustomed to the latest battle royale craze, a number of amusing glitches and frustrating features have been holding the experience back for some fans.

Adding onto the list of gameplay elements in need of an urgent fix, trucks are now able to soar through the sky as a result of a newly discovered bug.

Warzone features a wide array of vehicles though trucks could top the pack due to this new glitch.

Late into a round of solo action on March 24, Reddit user ‘YouTube_oRemyy’ already had three eliminations to their name and had made it through to the final third of the lobby.

With a stacked loadout of weapons and equipment, all appeared to be going well for the player until an aggressive truck pulled up nearby.

Rather than getting out and fighting mano-a-mano, the truck driver stayed put behind the wheel and tried their hardest to get a splatter for their efforts. 

Duking the driver left and right, the player on-foot was able to evade most attempts until the truck glitched and set out on a completely unpredictable course.

Quite literally caught between a rock and a hard place, the truck found itself wedged between a tree and some nearby rocks.

Reversing in an attempt to un-stick themselves, the truck began magically levitating and climbing its way up the tree instead.

Flipping out and spinning sideways at the apex of its glitchy climb, the truck seemingly magnetized to the player as it locked on and flew directly on top of them. Crushing the player on-foot and leaving a pile of loot in their wake.

Not only can players shoot out the back of trucks, but now they can apparently fly too.

With absolutely no time to react, there was nothing the player could have done to avoid being crushed in the moment.

There’s no telling exactly how this bug came to pass, but given the criticism already thrown at Warzone’s vehicles early into its release, this could serve as another nail in the coffin.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
