Warzone devs respond to game-breaking respawn glitch

A game-breaking respawn glitch has been plaguing Warzone players attempting to revive their teammates, but now a lead dev at Infinity Ward has commented on the issue.

It’s a bug you might have encountered at some point, and is genuinely a nightmare, especially when in tense situations. You take $4500, you head to the buy station to revive your fallen teammate, but you get nothing. Instead, it tells you your teammate is already in action on the battlefield.

It’s a bug that we’ve seen cost players matches numerous times, but there never seemed to be any real reason behind it, nor a solution to fixing the problem.

Now, though, Infinity Ward’s Co-Design Director of Multiplayer, Joe Cecot, has caught wind of the bug that is gradually affecting more and more people, and responded to the issue at hand.

On May 9, Twitter user Kris Luck reported the glitch to Cecot, who responded simply saying that they “haven’t seen this” but that he would report it to whoever needs to know.

Not long after, Cecot responded once again, showing that they were quickly looking to sort the issue. “Fix coming in next update” he told Kris, though it’s not completely clear when said update will go live in Warzone and Modern Warfare.

This isn’t the first major glitch players have encountered in Warzone, of course, but it might be one of the most annoying, especially given how influential it is on the outcome of the match.

It’s not clear where this bug has come from, but it’s fair to say that if you do get hit by it, don’t stand around at the buy station repeatedly trying, because it will inevitably result in your demise as enemies find you standing there hopelessly.

Regardless, it appears a fix is well on its way, so it shouldn’t be an issue for too much longer – but be wary anyway, and make sure your teammates are caught up on our top Gulag tips to make sure they’re not kicked out of Verdansk too early.

Best Warzone loot rotations to get more wins

Warzone has undoubtedly been a monster hit for Activision and the Call of Duty franchise, but even now players are still struggling to find the best loot rotations to maximize their chances of winning.

While Black Ops Cold War might be fresh on the shelves, Warzone is still super popular. Just as many players are dropping into Verdansk as ever before, and major changes Cold War will bring to the game are highly anticipated.

So, if you’re trying to figure out the best places to pick up loot and put yourself in the most advantageous positions for the long game, you’ve come to the right place, as we take into consideration potential zone pulls, best places to offer mobility and more.

Hospital

Hospital is great if you want solid mobility — just make sure to grab that heli!

What you’ll find is that, most of the time, the circle pulls towards one of the four corners of the map, so there are several places for you to consider with this in mind, based on where you expect the zone to go.

Dropping at Hospital places you in the middle of the lower half of the map, with a whole bunch of loot available. The buildings surrounding the main hospital will often be busy due to the sheer amounts of loot available. But you can often find a lot of mobility as well, including a helicopter, when dropping here, setting you up for the long haul.

Stadium

The Stadium opening up completely changed the game.

Stadium was absolutely hectic when it first opened, but now it’s a much easier place to land, and as always, offers a lot of loot. The best part about Stadium is the chance of finding a keycard to open up the loot bunkers, which will get you more than sufficiently set up for the rest of the game.

Again, due to how central it is on the map, Stadium is great if the circle pulls anywhere towards the east side of the map, but it can also be used to loot up and push into Downtown, which is always a hotspot for players dropping in to the battle royale game.

Prison

Prison is crammed with loot, but could be a game-winning drop if you don’t mind a slower game.

A Prison drop will rarely be the most exciting, except for the opening few minutes which will likely be hectic. That said, the loot on offer is often ideal, and many games see the circle finish around Prison too.

If you think the zone looks to be finishing in Prison, you can work your way through all the floors to amass serious amounts of loot, and if it finishes away from Prison you can easily float into the likes of Farmland and Port, which equally have good loot on offer.

Quarry

Quarry is popular, but is usually a fairly safe drop, which could be perfect if you want some peace while you loot up.

Quarry is always a busy spot, filled with contracts and, most importantly, loot. Offering good rotation opportunities, it’s easy enough to stock up on everything you need in Quarry before moving out to the likes of Military Base or even as far as Dam, depending on how the zone moves.

Similarly, you can move out to TV Station for a more central position, which in itself is also filled with loot, to maximize your chances of staying ahead of circle rotations.

Train Station

Train Station has loot in abundance, and could definitely set you up well at the start of the game.

Finally, Train Station is arguably the best place to drop from a pure loot perspective. There’s unprecedented amounts of loot crates, and it feels like it naturally stretches out towards Downtown, Promenade, Boneyard and Hospital, making it easy to rotate out of when the zone moves.

Needless to say, if you drop at Train Station (and make it out alive), you should be more than prepared to take any gunfight and buy whatever you need from the Buy Station.

They’re our top picks for the best loot rotations in Warzone, but ultimately a lot of it comes down to personal preference. That said, these spots will guarantee you some solid loot and a decent amount of cash to use, so it’s worth practicing these drops and rotations.
