Warzone glitch lets you see inside of the airplane and players love it

One of Call of Duty: Warzone’s latest glitches lets you watch players jump out of the Lockheed C-130 Hercules plane, and players are clamoring for its permanent addition to the game.

There are game-breaking glitches and novelty, typically visual bugs that don’t impact gameplay. The former are detested while the latter are sometimes appreciated. Warzone’s new deployment glitch is a blend of both.

When you drop onto Verdansk in Warzone, you see a cutscene of your team getting ready to parachute and then a third-person view of the plane traversing the game’s vast map. Once you jump out, the camera switches to first-person and you make your way to loot or battle.

The default visual lets you watch the C-130 fly over the map from a third-person view.

 

As seen increasingly since the April 28 patch though, players are finding themselves hanging out in the first-person view within the plane and watching other squads deploy first. 

It’s honestly pretty cool, like a miles-high pregame lobby filled with people either enjoying the ride or antsy to get in the action (but without being able to harm one another, like the Gulag’s viewing area).

You get to see a variety of outfits, the interior of the plane, and get immersed in the game earlier than usual. As Redditor, ‘english_j12’ showed, it’s actually quite visually appealing.

But, as karmic rules define, you can’t have the accidental good without the accidental bad and it turns out this is as game-breaking a glitch as possible.

While it’s an aesthetically pleasing experience early on, players who encounter this bug are not able to deploy until the plane has passed the map. At that point, they simply drop into the Infinitum of Verdansk’s code and never stop falling—without ever taking damage.

For the sake of science and YouTube, ‘Daly Gasri’ went through the effort of showing exactly what happens when you just wait out this never-ending drop.

 

It turns out, you get a guaranteed win from miles below the map as the true winners succumb to the gas.

Winning without doing much damage already doesn’t feel great, but this takes it to another, horrible level as you literally can do nothing but swivel your camera for an entire match. As it stands, Infinity Ward are aware of the situation and have marked their effort to fix it as “in progress” on the Modern Warfare Trello.

Hopefully, they get this (and the chat audio bug) sorted soon, but realize players enjoy the visual immersion and consider adding that part to the game later on.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
