A number of Call of Duty: Warzone players believe Infinity Ward may have made a secret change to exiting vehicles, not mentioned in the most recent patch notes.

Despite Call of Duty: Warzone’s incredible popularity – boasting over 75 million players worldwide –   many fans have taken issue with the number of bugs and glitches that plague the game, and secret patches that are omitted from official update correspondence.

This emergent issue, highlighted by a number of players on Reddit, appears to have started with the Season 6 launch, but it’s not entirely clear whether it’s a glitch or a deliberate change on Infinity Ward’s part.

Players have reported that, for unknown reasons, their POV is jumping around when exiting vehicles.

One Redditor who has been experiencing the issues asked: “Has anyone else noticed since the update sometimes when you hop out of a vehicle your aim is randomly set way off target? Reckon this is a bug or a stealth vehicle nerf?”

Essentially, when hopping out of a vehicle and trying to ADS at a nearby enemy, players are experiencing bizarre changes in their POV, to the point of some people’s aim being redirected towards the sky. It doesn’t seem to be an isolated incident either, with multiple different players reporting similar problems.

Another Warzone player said: “Every time I drive in with a vehicle, exit (I’m looking straight at or down at someone,) the game SHOOTS my screen and looks upwards. This hasn’t happened before and I watching my replays I can clearly see I was looking at the target at head level and right as I exit, my PoV SHOOTS straight up.”

As previously stated, the reasons behind these issues are unclear and it’s not known whether this is a bug or a stealth change.

It could be that Infinity Ward made changes to reflect characters reorienting themselves after exiting vehicles, but chose to omit the change from patch notes.

We’ll have to wait and see what the developers say, but Warzone players are both confused and frustrated by the changes.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
