Warzone bug is spawning players in the gas with no chance of survival

A frustrating Warzone bug is leaving players without a chance to fend for themselves as Gulag winners are being thrown straight back into the toxic gas.

Infinity Ward’s battle royale has captured the attention of over 15 million players in its first week. While the fresh release is certainly popular, the 150-player mode has come with its fair share of amusing, devastating, and sometimes frustrating issues.

The Gulag has been host to a number of clever tricks and strategies, however, a new bug is leaving players frustrated after winning their 1v1.

Players have already discovered a number of clever tricks to help in the Gulag.

Thrown straight back into a gunfight after being taken out during battle, the Gulag gives players a second chance to right their wrongs and get back in the fight. 

Upon winning a 1v1, the victors are dropped back into the map overhead of nearby allies within the safe zone. At least, that’s how the feature is supposed to work.

Rather than redeploying to a safe space and allowing players the chance to land, and get back into the fight properly and try again with a new loadout, a new bug is respawning players in the midst of noxious gas, spelling certainly death.

I won my fight in the gulag, and then spawned in the gas, killing me pretty much instantly. Is there a patch in the works for this? from CODWarzone

“I won my fight in the gulag, and then spawned in the gas, killing me pretty much instantly,” Reddit user ‘on-my-mobile’ explained as they shared a video in hopes of raising awareness of the toxic-drop issue.

Their screen darkened after winning the 1v1, and their character could already be heard coughing well before the game transitioned back to the sprawling battlefield.

Opening their map before they regained control, the player realized their icon was in the red. As they finally shifted to a first-person perspective, they had already dropped to less than half health and was taken out of action by the poisonous gas soon after.

With barely enough time to adjust their direction and fly towards the safe zone, there was seemingly nothing the player could have done to avoid the frustrating situation, except watch as their hard-earned return faded away.

While the Warzone developers at Infinity Ward appear to have their work cut out for them as they try to address a number of significant issues, it seems as though this Gulag bug is not on the radar for the time being

In the meantime, if you end up in the Gulag and have to fend for yourself, try this surprising spray tactic to get the upper hand— after that, you’ll just have to pray the game doesn’t decide you’re set for another toxic death.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
