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.

Black Ops Cold War Beta players on consoles can finally change their field of view settings thanks to a welcome addition by Treyarch. Here’s everything you need to know about the new options, including what the best setting is.

Field of view options for consoles is something that fans have been asking for for a long time. Whenever a new CoD game releases, there’s always a section of PlayStation and Xbox players wondering why the option hasn’t been made available for them. It’s equally frustrating considering that the PC version of every iteration has had the options available on day one.

This is all changing with Black Ops Cold War, however, as Treyarch has confirmed that players on consoles will finally be able to adjust their field of view. For people unfamiliar with the options, this might be a bit confusing. Taking advantage of these settings, however, might end up helping your game.

What is field of view?

At its most basic form, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.

While some people might immediately say that a high field of view is automatically better, it’s important to note that the higher the field of view, the more distorted your screen will look and the smaller objects will look at a distance.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to balance you’re field of view with what your comfortable looking at.

How do I adjust my FOV settings?

In the beta, finding the FOV slider is relatively simple but in case you don’t know, here’s a quick and simple guide to figure it out.

  1. In your Black Ops Cold War Beta application, press the buttons for “Settings”
  2. Tab over to the “Graphics” options
  3. Scroll down until you see “Field of View”
  4. Adjust the slider from left to right to set to your desired setting.

What’s the ideal field of view setting?

If you’ve never played with a modified field of view before, it might be best to take things slow. Working your way up will allow you to adjust to the higher FOV so that you’re not thrown into the deep in, so to speak.

In order to have a high FOV, while making sure that you can still see enemies, it’s recommended to keep your adjusted setting at 100. While you can certainly push it all the way up to 120, the former will allow you to experience the changes without it being too difficult to see things at a distance.
