The fourth Season of Modern Warfare has shaken up Warzone with all-new content. As the in-game story unfolds, players believe they’ve spotted the biggest easter egg yet with a potential submarine sighting underneath the Dam.

Warzone has been drastically altered in the latest season update with new items and new in-game events. The battle royale has plenty to keep players occupied with, though teasers of future changes are still appearing around the map.

Not only is an enormous nuclear missile hidden away in one of the game’s bunkers, but now players are reporting submarines under Verdansk. Is this latest easter egg teasing a huge development, or has the community got the wrong idea? Let’s break down all the evidence.

Could submarines be lurking underneath the Dam in Warzone?

Many players believe that they’ve spotted something moving underneath the Dam. The frozen lake is inaccessible no matter how hard you try to break the ice, but hovering over the area seems to show something huge moving under the surface.

This dark texture moves from one side of the lake to the other, giving the community the idea that it could be a submarine. Why would there be a sub under the map? There’s no quite telling, though it could all play into the ongoing story as numerous CoD icons join the fight against Victor Zahkaev.

Are we actually looking at submarines?

It didn’t take long for the community to pick the potential easter egg apart, dissecting what this mystery could actually be. Popular Warzone leak account, ‘ModernWarzone’ quickly dispelled the submarine theories, highlighting that the dark texture is merely a shadow.

As clouds appear over Verdansk, they leave a shadow on the map below. These shadows appear across the map, not just at the Dam alone. Additionally, “they cover the rocks and other objects above the ice,” putting an end to the idea of a submarine moving under the map.

“[The shadows] have very blocky and pixelated edges,” they said. These unpolished visuals wouldn’t be ideal if the devs were indeed teasing something new under Verdansk. While an appearance at the Dam could have been plausible, there are “hundreds” of these sub-esque shadows all over the ocean.

Fans may have to direct their investigations back towards the nuclear bunkers for the time being. It’s here that Infinity Ward has been hinting at the future of the battle royale. Potentially even alluding to an all-new map coming soon.

Season 4 of Warzone only just began on June 11. Here’s a full rundown on all the new additions to get you up to speed.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War bug is making players fall through maps

Black Ops Cold War players are facing an issue which is seeing them completely fall through the maps in the game, and nobody knows why.

As with any new release, Cold War is not without its bugs. Players claim that the game is giving them free Dark Matter camos and, perhaps worst of all, even bricking their Xbox Series X consoles.

One of the major complaints about BOCW has been the lack of maps, with just eight being available at launch — and matters are about to get even worse for Treyarch if this bug persists.

In multiple clips, we’ve seen players simply falling through the map and dying, and it doesn’t seem bound to one particular map either.

Moscow is one of the more popular maps in Black Ops Cold War — but this bug is making it difficult.

The first clip embedded below shows Sturmbrecher64 on Reddit playing out of their spawn on Garrison.

After moving behind some barrels for protection from incoming gunfire, Sturmbrecher just drops right through the floor, even granting his enemy the kill!

Sturmbrecher isn’t the only victim, though, as professional player Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon of OpTic Chicago also found himself flying under the map randomly when trying to hold spawns on Moscow Hardpoint.

Needless to say, he didn’t hold the spawns, and actually isn’t the first major problem pros have found on Moscow: his OpTic teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper actually found himself stuck in a glass window, unable to move when attempting to rotate to a different bombsite, with the only option being to throw a nade at his own feet or — in this lucky instance — have Envoy ‘punch’ him out of the spot.

It’s not clear yet whether these points specifically on each map are causing problems for players, or if it’s random, but it’s evidently something that is an issue across the game in general, so Treyarch will likely be finding ways to fix it up as soon as possible.
