A Call of Duty: Warzone 2 player has encountered a strange bug that disconnects the game whenever they try sniping enemies from afar.

Warzone 2 bug causes game to disconnect when sniping

“I know the devs hate snipers but this is a bit excessive,” wrote Redditor Kenja_Time upon posting a clip of the Warzone sequel randomly crashing mid-match.

The video shows two separate instances of the player firing off a shot from a sniper rifle, only for Warzone 2 to suddenly crash. Both times, the user was met with an error message that read: “DEV ERROR 11588.”
