Infinity Ward are working on fixing a major Warzone bug with the notorious Gas Masks, which, in a rare glitch, become totally invulnerable.

Verdansk’s inevitable circle collapse catches even the best of us off-guard in Warzone. Luckily, players can equip themselves with Gas Masks to avoid taking any damage.

While the animation when equipping the mask has come under scrutiny in the past, the most recent glitch to come into the spotlight is ruining endgame scenarios.

Essentially, players can randomly stumble across an ‘unbreakable’ Gas Mask which grants them permanent immunity from the toxic effects of the gas, as both Vikram ‘Vikkstar’ Singh Barn and Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren discovered.

Players can simply run away from their enemies and into the gas with this bug.

While the exact cause of the bug isn’t known, some players have theorized that interacting with loot at the exact moment the mask is about to break is at the root of the issue.

Of course, any player that manages to come across the bug is given a free win, as all they need to do is run into the toxic smog while their foes perish.

So, given the game-breaking nature of the bug, Infinity Ward are on the case. On June 10, the Warzone devs opened a Trello ticket on their Issue Tracker, which is now labeled ‘In Progress.’

In a rare case, the gas mask is able to become invulnerable and will not fully break off after it reaches 0 health.

Per their tracker, it also looks like a fix is imminent for the infamous placebo weapon glitch, where players see the incorrect model for the gun they’re picking up from the ground.

While this doesn’t point towards an exact date for the fixes, it provides a glimmer of hope that a degree of normality will return across all Warzone games.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
