A Warzone developer has acknowledged and responded to a bizarre bug in the battle royale title that is causing players to literally get stuck.

While Warzone has been wildly popular with its playerbase since launching in March, it’s still fallen prone to some game-breaking or simply downright strange bugs.

With frustrated players unable to respawn their teammates and a bizarre bug that causes the parachute to send players flying upwards, it’s no surprise that they’ve committed to a number of bug fixes heading into Season 4.

Activision
Warzone Season 4 is set to fix a number of major issues.

While the upcoming Season 4 looks set to address a large number of issues in both Modern Warfare and Warzone, they had been announced ahead of time, and it wasn’t clear what would happen here, with players literally getting stuck.

This issue, though, didn’t seem to have any fix in sight until Infinity Ward’s co-design director of multiplayer, Joe Cecot, acknowledged it on June 5.

As you can see in the below clips, when we say stuck, we literally mean stuck. While attempting to traverse Verdansk, popular YouTuber TheXclusiveAce literally jumped off of some rocks and immediately got stuck in the ground.

Despite his best efforts, XclusiveAce was unable to move from the spot where he got stuck, eventually just finding himself stuck in the gas and accepting his fate.

In response, Cecot simply thanked Ace and confirmed that it had been shared with the team.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t a one-time bug. On May 11, around three weeks prior to Cecot’s response here, MacS7n experienced the same issue, having to use a killstreak on himself just to get away.

This proves that it’s not a particular spot on the map, and it’s not immediately noticeable whether there’s anything in particular actually causing this to happen.

That said, it seems Infinity Ward are on top of it, and when Season 4 officially drops this bug should no longer be occurring. Unfortunately, we still don’t have an exact date on Season 4’s launch date following a delay on June 1.

Everything from new maps to incoming Operators and plenty more has all spilled out early, with new Black Ops Cold War leaks revealing a bunch of content coming with the Season 1 update.

We’re still a few days out from the arrival of Season 1, though new Black Ops Cold War leaks are coming through almost every day. From classic modes making a return, to unique in-game events on the horizon, we’ve already got a decent idea of what to expect.

However, things haven’t stopped there. The latest set of datamined content has uncovered our first-look at Season 1 maps, Operators, and more. While the names of incoming maps may have been revealed a while back, we now have a proper look at all four additions coming soon.

Additionally, there’s also a unique Season 1 Starter pack that comes boasting some exclusive rewards. Here’s a rundown on everything we now know thanks to the latest leaks.

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 maps

Up first, we’ve got a quick look at four new locations coming in Season 1. They’re bite-sized pictures that simply reveal the theme of each new map. The first appears to be some kind of game show set as camera equipment and bright signs can be spotted throughout.

Next up looks to be a darker map, perhaps something underground or even a subway system given the briefcases nearby. It may have been an evacuation site. Only time will tell for this one.

The third map pictured seems to be a wide-open locale with some kind of rocket in the center. Maybe a testing facility or a fully-fledged launch site somewhere in the United States.

Last but not least, we have a simple map that looks to feature some amount of office space, shelving, and a patriotic statue of sorts. If earlier intel holds up, one of these new locations will be a fresh Zombies experience. The first appears to be confirmed for Gunfight only, meaning a close-quarters design for 2v2 combat. While the remaining two maps are for core multiplayer game modes.

It’s worth noting that not all of these are confirmed to be launching on day one. While the major update is set to introduce a ton of this new content, some of these maps could be drip-fed throughout the season to keep players coming back. 

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Operator Skins

What would a new Season in Call of Duty be without some fresh cosmetics? A few of your favorite Operators appear to be getting some new outfits in Season 1. First up is Woods with a new winter look, rocking some snow goggles, thick gloves, a beanie, and a coat.

Next is Sims who has a more casual look this time around. Rather than dressing the part for a mission, he’s wearing a simple top with some cool shades and a hat.

Last but not least is some love for the Warsaw Pact. Portnova has a new skin this Season with a vibrant red top and a matching beret.

Also part of the leaks is an entirely new skin that could be the level 100 unlock in the Season 1 Battle Pass.

This Operator comes equipped for battle with multiple grenades and ammunition pouches on his upper body. Not to mention an imposing mask to cover his presumably scarred face.

Another new Operator wears a gas mask, only has one eye, and could not be more intimidating in an all-black outfit. 

These come alongside a previously leaked Operator skin for Adler. There’s no way of telling how to unlock these items; some might be tied to the Battle Pass, while others could be acquired through challenges like their current variants.
