Infinity Ward devs have responded to two seriously frustrating bugs in Call of Duty: Warzone, one relating to the Heartbeat Sensor and another regarding the sought after Armor Satchel.

Despite Warzone’s incredible popularity, many players have become frustrated with the plethora of bugs affecting Call of Duty’s sophomore battle royale.

From the bizarre to the game-breaking, Infinity Ward have been accused by some of being slow at fixing the issues their game is facing. A couple more have surfaced recently, too, focusing on the Heartbeat Sensor and Armor Satchel.

Season 5 is continuing the momentum Warzone has had in recent months, despite struggling with a few new bugs.

The bug affecting the Heartbeat Sensors in Warzone is arguably the more prominent, and sees players experience serious lag and freezing when it is pulled out. Needless to say, this issue is getting Warzone players killed frequently.

One Warzone player tweeted Co-Design Director of Multiplayer Joe Cecot about the issue, who responded to say that they are looking into the issue. While he did not provide information on a timescale, it’s fair to assume that a fix will be on its way soon given the severity of the issue.

Another issue that has been identified by Warzone players relates to the game’s Armor Satchels – a highly sought after item given the importance of armor.

However, certain players were finding fresh Armor Satchels on the ground that, for whatever reason, had full armor when picked up. Needless to say this put certain lucky players at a huge advantage, as having eight armor spare is an ideal situation in any Warzone match.

A new Trello card added to Infinity Ward’s board states that this has been fixed, and the patch will be implemented soon.

Time scales were not provided but with Infinity Ward hot on the heels of the bugs, we can expect swift fixes in the near future, potentially with the Season 6 update. This is set to drop on September 29, barring any last minute delays.

The reigning Call of Duty League Champions, Dallas Empire have signed 23-year-old veteran Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson as their first substitute for the upcoming 2021 campaign.

FeLo is set to join the Empire as a substitute player after playing for Triumph. A specialist in Search & Destroy, he’s expected to bolster the team’s prowess in the stringent game type now that the league is moving to a 4v4 format.

“Bringing FeLo to the team was a natural move for us as we prepare to repeat our championship run from the League’s first season,” Empire’s Head Coach Ray ‘Rambo’ Lussier said. “He’s a world-class Search & Destroy player and helped us prepare for the Grand Finals last year, so we’re expecting great things from him.”

Years ago, FeLo made a name for himself online as one of the best S&D players, and the Team Envy-owned org is relying on him to bring a new type of heat to Dallas’ heavy-hitting squad.

“Blessed to be a part of such a great organization, going to help the boys in any way I can this year,” FeLo said of the announcement. “Thank you guys for all the love.”

During the 2020 North American Challengers Final, Triumph managed to claim the top prize of $50,000 while only dropping one map of S&D during their playoff run to first place.

While the Empire had one of the strongest overall offenses in the CDL last year, their Search & Destroy was a glaring point in their game that would look shaky against the best in the league.

By signing FeLo, Empire gives themselves some flexibility to switch out Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland or Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter for someone that has a wealth of experience navigating S&D.

The CDL 2020 champs just got stronger by adding S&D specialist FeLo.

Even after departing with James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks due to the new Black Ops Cold War format, the Empire’s starting roster has to be considered among the strongest in the league.

Now Rambo will have to find the best ways to maneuver his five-man squad when going up against tough competitors like Atlanta FaZe, OpTic Chicago, and more.

FeLo has signed with Dallas Empire, but the move is pending league approval.

Dallas Empire’s 2021 CDL Roster:

  • Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro
  • Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland
  • Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal
  • Ian ‘C6’ Porter
  • Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson (Substitute)
