Warzone players randomly losing weapons and cash due to major map bug

A frustrating new Call of Duty: Warzone bug has emerged, which appears to see items dropped through the floor and out of the map. 

Away from hacking, some of the biggest issues facing Warzone are its number of glitches and inconsistencies. We have seen determined action from Infinity Ward to reduce the prominence of some glitches, including pushing through the August 15 patch at record speed to fix the infamous ‘demon gun’ glitch.

However, as one glitch is fixed another seems to rise to the surface, this time focusing on certain stairs on the map.

Warzone Season 5 has had its fair share of bugs.

Shared to Reddit by user ‘ohrules‘ on August 16, it takes the form of a PSA. “Avoid dropping items on the stairs that lead to the subway stations,” they said. “They go right through the floor. We lost 5k cash to these stairs.”

Attached was a clip showing stairs down to a closed subway station, the likes of which there are many scattered around Verdansk.

This one, located in Downtown, appears to not be loading its textures correctly as, when dropping ammunition, it falls straight through the stairs and vanishes.

While losing ammo is frustrating, the player commented on the amount of money they have already lost. Money, any Warzone player will know, is as crucial as weapons when trying to stay alive.

It also appears to be affecting multiple areas of the map, not just the set of stairs in Downtown that is documented in the clip. Some Reddit users even responded to say that they avoid dropping anything on stairs, having experienced similar issues all round the map.

As of the publication of this article, Infinity Ward have not responded to the issues, but we will be the first to update you in regards changes and patches they make in the near future.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
