Warzone’s major Season 6 update has been riddled with bugs since it launched on September 28, though the latest issue might be the worst yet as Verdansk is literally being flipped sideways.

Infinity Ward’s final season leading the charge with Warzone came boasting a ton of new content. The map changed in a big way thanks to the introduction of a new subway system. Players were able to nab two powerful weapons in the Battle Pass. And some of the most requested balance updates finally came through.

This new patch was welcomed with open arms, though nearly every element of the major update has been bogged down in some way. The new subway stations created game-breaking bugs. Meanwhile, the new weapons came with issues of their own as players soon realized they could shoot through an unlimited number of walls. Now, one of the more absurd bugs of the season has just been uncovered.

Stealing the spotlight away from the aforementioned issues, Warzone players have quite literally been shaken up by another new problem.

Flipped a vehicle and ended up sideways from CODWarzone

“Flipped a vehicle and ended up sideways,” Reddit user ‘Venomx24’ shared alongside a video of the quirky bug in action. Their Operator was running sideways along the ground as though their waist was magnetized to the floor.

No matter if they were sprinting, sliding, or even mantling over obstacles, the camera remained slanted. There was seemingly no way to fix the issue so the player “just left the game.”

Not only was their perspective shifted, but this also had a huge impact on their ability to aim. “My aim was flipped with the cam so aiming up went to the top right,” they explained. You’d have to adjust your posture and lay down sideways to counteract the awkward tilt on-screen.

It all stemmed from exiting out of a vehicle that had flipped on its side. So until a hotfix is deployed, be sure that you’re extra cautious when driving through Verdansk. The last thing you want is to flip your vehicle and have it ruin your entire run.

Infinity Ward is yet to address this particular issue as they’ve been hard at work with plenty of more prominent bugs since the Season 6 launch. Frequent crashes due to the update even delayed a $100,000 tournament.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming days for a potential hotfix. Though in the meantime, do your best to avoid this ‘tilting’ bug in Warzone.

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.

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.
