Warzone Buy Stations are still causing players big problems

Warzone’s Buy Stations are still causing huge problems for players — despite promises that they would be fixed all the way back in March when the game first launched.

Despite Warzone’s success among not only Call of Duty players but the gaming community as a whole, there are a number of issues that are causing some serious rage-inducing moments for players — and Buy Stations continue to be a frustrating sticking point for players.

Back in Season 3, players were unable to respawn their eliminated teammates from Buy Stations thanks to a frustrating bug, but this problem is something that has been much more persistent — yet equally as annoying.

As you can see in the clip below, posted by ssuxbryan, they head to the Buy Station to buy back their eliminated teammates, who come back without a hitch.

Instead, it’s Bryan who is stuck in this scenario, unable to stand up or move, glued the spot where he laid when he used the Buy Station.

Though it’s massively frustrating and could completely ruin someone’s chances of getting a win in Verdansk, it’s not new by any means.

Back in July, popular streamer TimTheTatman posted a video to YouTube in which it happened to him, too, unable to move after using the Buy Station to bring back teammate Huskerrs.

Despite the ongoing issues, looking back at prior updates and patch notes, Infinity Ward were actually looking to fix this issue just days after the game launched all the way back in March.

As mentioned, IW were looking to address an issue where “players can get stuck under a Buy Station if going prone while interacting with it,” and this appears to be what happened to bryan in the first clip.

However, Tim wasn’t prone at all when he faced the glitch, but instead seems to be crouched behind it, wedged between the Buy Station and a wall.

So, if you’ve lost games because of this glitch, don’t worry because you’re definitely not the only one. Whether this is the exact same glitch that Infinity Ward addressed back in March is unclear but, needless to say, they’re going to want to get it fixed.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
