Unusual Warzone bug makes Legendary Supply Boxes disappear

A bizarre Warzone glitch is causing Legendary Supply Boxes to vanish into thin air during the landing sequence at the beginning of a game.

Looting in Warzone is your most valuable asset. If you stumble on high-level loot early on in the game, it’ll often give you a jump start over everyone else in the server.

Of course, everyone prays to find a Legendary Supply Box when landing in Verdansk. With the chance of snagging a Legendary Blueprint, a wad of cash and some armor plates, it’s easy to see why looting one of these early doors can be a game-changer.

And one Redditor thought that they’d done just that while dropping onto the moving freight train — only to find out that Infinity Ward were trolling him the whole time!

Supply Boxes often change the tide of a Warzone match in your favor.

After failing to land inside the train carriage where the Legendary Supply Box was waiting, ‘cartmanez1907’ attempted to renavigate to get in.

After finally hopping inside the coach to redeem their loot, the Redditor discovered that the Legendary box had disappeared into thin air.

In a bizarre turn of events, the initial explanation would be that the Supply Box was just an optical illusion… But as they initially approached the coach, there was a distinct audio cue as they edged closer to the coveted chest.

So with the chest seemingly vanishing into thin air, the only logical explanation would be a glitch of some kind. Given that Infinity Ward is already fighting an uphill battle when it comes to solving the plethora of issues in Warzone, this is the last thing they need to add to the list.

This comes as the infamous ‘demon gun’ glitch has made an unwelcomed return to Verdansk, merely a month after it had been fixed in a highly anticipated patch.

Of course, it’s not known if this is the first time anyone has ran into the issue of Supply Boxes spontaneously disappearing. But if it becomes more prevalent, there’s no doubt that Infinity Ward will add it to their list of snags.

Esports organisation Renegades have revealed their Call of Duty roster for the second season of the CDL’s Challengers Series, including players from last year’s Paris Legion roster. 

The switch from the Call of Duty World League to the Call of Duty League represents the greatest shake-up competitive CoD has ever seen. While latter tournaments in the CWL involved an amateur tournament running parallel to the main one, the introduction of Challengers’ Series gives a greater formalisation to competition below the best of the best.

With franchised spots in the CDL costing millions, it’s no surprise that some big name esports organisations have found themselves competing in the Challengers Series. One of these orgs is Renegades, the Detroit-based esports team that has come in and out of competitive CoD in recent years.

Renegades have come and gone from the Call of Duty pro scene in the past.

On October 31, they announced their CoD roster for the upcoming Black Ops Cold War season, which will be the second season of the CDL and its accompanying Challenger Series.

Perhaps the biggest name in the new roster is Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas, who represented Paris Legion in the CDL last year. It was an up-and-down year for the Paris Legion, who managed a second place finish at the online CDL Week 12 London event.

He is also joined by ex-Paris teammate Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek, who is best known for his five years with Australian organisation Mindfreak from 2014 to 2019.

Rounding off the roster are Lincoln ‘Fighta’ Ferguson and Amer ‘Pred’ Zulbeari, making a fully Australian roster. The nationalities of all players means they will likely compete in the APAC region of the Challengers Series.

While Shockz and Louqa come off the back of mixed fortunes in the CDL, Fighta and Pred both joined Renegades in January of 2020. In the somewhat weaker field of APAC competition, their Renegades roster dominated the region’s Challenger tournaments during the Modern Warfare season.

Replacing half the team with CDL standard pros means it’s likely we’ll see similar domination this year, barring any shock performances from the other APAC teams.
