Warzone players are rejoicing as Raven Software has launched its May 8 update, fixing a game-breaking bug a week after the Season 3 Reloaded update.

Season 3 Reloaded brought a bunch of new content and balance changes to Warzone, but it also unintentionally added a bug into the battle royale. Players noticed after the update downloaded that sometimes their reload animation would be interrupted by their Tactical Sprint, canceling the reload.

The patch notes for the May 8 update that the developers say will fix the bug, along with a few others, have been released. They are as follows:

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the issue causing automatic tactical sprint to interrupt attempts to reload a weapon.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Prioritize Interact setting on controllers to prevent players from reloading.
  • Fixed an issue preventing the host from starting a Private Match when over the player threshold.
  • Fixed an issue causing Squad members to see the incorrect ping on the Champion’s Quest contract.

Raven Software announced its intention to fix the reload bug in this update on May 7. Players, however, were not happy at the time, saying the developer was dragging its feet with the fix.

“Holy crap I wasn’t expecting a fix for this so soon! Thank you guys for constantly surprising us with your hard work and passion for the game! I speak for everyone here when I say we do not deserve a company that treats us so well,” one commenter on social media sarcastically said about the update.

Other commenters asked why Raven Software couldn’t just implement the change sooner, with one popular response saying if it was an issue with the game’s store the bug would have been fixed faster.

“It’s been seven days for something that was completely fine before,” CoD content creator Whoh said.

With the update shipped, players should no longer have to worry about the reload bug.
