Warzone leaker reveals Stadium could open up in Season 4

A Warzone leaker has revealed that a bunch of major changes could be coming to the game, including the expansion of the Stadium area.

As with any battle royale title, or long-standing game in general, Warzone needs to find ways to stay feeling fresh and new for its regular players, especially with how Fortnite completely changed up the BR genre with its constant bi-weekly updates.

While Warzone doesn’t do updates and make changes quite so frequently, that doesn’t mean Activision and Infinity Ward don’t have big plans to expand and change up the game, as this leaker suggests.

Since the game launched, many players have questioned the point of Stadium since it’s permanently closed and takes up quite a large portion of space.

This might be changing soon though, potentially during Season 4, if leaker Geeky Pastimes has got it right this time, as he did initially when he datamined the later-changed Season 4 launch date of June 10.

Among other things, Geeky Pastimes says that he has found “something about the interior of the stadium” in the game’s files.

Of course, this could mean anything, especially since he’s not entirely sure whether it pertains to Warzone, multiplayer or a cutscene.

With Stadium currently not playing a part in the multiplayer portion of Modern Warfare, it seems easier to believe that it has more to do with Warzone, and it’s very possible that fans might finally be able to see inside of it.

Geeky Pastimes also says that there’s something to do with a train in the game’s files, and this could make sense as there are currently a set of train tracks forming a circle around the south-west side of the map.

The train tracks take up a decent portion of the map, and are currently unoccupied by trains.

A train would be a welcome addition to the map for many players, similar to how Apex Legends added a train in Season 3, and is something fans have actually already requested.

As mentioned, this isn’t set in stone: for all we know, Stadium could just get an internal map in multiplayer, or there might be no changes surrounding Stadium at all. We’ll just have to wait and see as the stadium progresses.

Hilarious Black Ops Cold War bug literally breaks Fireteam Dirty Bomb

A game-breaking Black Ops Cold War bug is suspending players above the map on Fireteam Dirty Bomb, rendering them useless for the entire match.

As with any new release, Black Ops Cold War has had its fair share of bugs and glitches. From players falling through the map to a permanent thermal overlay, its obvious Treyarch overlooked a few elements of the game before releasing the title.

However, if a bug is not game-breaking, players will usually laugh it off and let it go. It’s only when a glitch renders players completely useless that a bug starts to become more frustrating than funny.

Well, that’s exactly the type of bug some players are experiencing on Fireteam Dirty Bomb and it’s fair to say they’re not pleased about it.

Game-breaking bug suspends players above the map

A video posted to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit reveals a game-breaking bug occurring on Fireteam Dirty Bomb. The glitch suspends the players above the map for the entire match with them unable to move or participate.

On top of this, it appears the entire game mode is broken with teams being bigger than they’re are supposed to be and textures not loading in.

As you can see, the players are left floating above the map and are audibly frustrated at the issue. One of them even states: “I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game.”

It’s worth noting the players can scope down onto the map below but they’re completely locked in place. Attempting to run will trigger the animation but no movement will occur.

Glitches can be entertaining in certain titles, especially when they do not heavily impact the gameplay experience. However, in competitive games like Call of Duty, a game-breaking bug can be extremely frustrating.

Fingers crossed Treyarch get this bug fixed as soon as possible so players don’t have to continue spectating the game from above the map.
