Infinity Ward are putting out a fix to the rampant Warzone crashes players have been reporting throughout PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC communities following the Season 6 release.

The company is releasing a quick in-game update on every platform that they hope will resolve the recurring stalls that have been filing in since the patch.

“A patch is rolling out now that resolves this issue across all platforms,” IW said. “Thank you again for your patience while we worked on a solution and if you experience any further issues, please reach out to Activision.”

This should resolve most of the issues that players have been encountering since the highly-anticipated launch of Season 6, though players should keep an eye out and report any issues that may come up.

IW and Activision were bombarded with reports and complaints after players were finding that Warzone was malfunctioning hours after downloading the full patch update.

“We’re still working on this issue but do have a fix that we’re hoping to release tomorrow, pending any unforeseen issues with testing,” IW wrote. “We’ll provide another update when we have more to share. Thank you again for your patience.”

After the problem had been identified, the company told affected players to expect another download soon that would directly address the problems that stemmed from the new season.

On September 29, Infinity Ward launched the sixth season for Modern Warfare and its battle royale component. The update ranged from 20GB to 63GB depending on the platform, but people from all corners of the CoD player base were filinging in with outages or prolonged stalls.

Modern Warfare and Warzone players were eager to explore Season 6 before widespread crashes were being reported.

About eight hours after the patch dropped, Activision Support recognized the widespread issues with Warzone and Modern Warfare that were preventing people from dropping into Season 6.

This isn’t to be confused with the CE-34878-0 blue screen errors on PlayStation 4 that forced community members to create a workaround fix for themselves.

Hopefully this will be the last of any issues pertaining to the Season 6 launch, though Activision and Infinity Ward will be on the case if any other problems should arise.

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has revealed what his ideal AUG loadout is in Warzone, offering a viable alternative to the more popular MP5 and MP7 SMGs.

For most people, they’ve got their Warzone loadouts figured out and often run what is typically considered the meta; the Kilo 141, with an MP5 in your back pocket.

While there is occasionally some variation, with some players maybe opting for the likes of the M4A1, an MP7 or a sniper rifle of some sort, there are some weapons that you’ll almost never see in Verdansk.

Season 6 launched back on September 29, and players have been testing out the new weapons, as well as how balancing might have changed the existing crop of guns — and Nick thinks the AUG could be a sleeper pick for your loadout.

The new Season 6 SP-R208 Marksman Rifle has been a particularly popular addition to Warzone.

After mentioning how pro Call of Duty players actually banned the AUG in pro scrims and matches earlier in 2020, as one of the weapons they made a “gentleman’s agreement” to not use, Nick explains that he believes the AUG can actually go toe-to-toe with the likes of the MP5 and MP7.

So, if you’re looking for a new submachine gun to run, and want to use something slightly different to the usual and take enemies by surprise, this AUG loadout might be for you. Here’s what Nick stacks on his:

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 407mm Extended Barrel
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

While most of this follows what we would typically expect from an SMG loadout in Warzone, there are some notable differences, but the biggest is the lack of ammunition options. Usually, you would see someone put some kind of magazine extension on their weapon, as is often necessary when finishing your kills in Warzone.

Instead, Nick’s AUG uses the standard magazine, and he opts for the Stippled Grip Tape underbarrel instead, improving recoil control and aiming stability. With this, you should hopefully hit more shots on your target and not have need for an extended magazine.

You’re not likely to see the AUG used much in Warzone, so with this loadout you might be able to catch your opponents by surprise and pick up some eliminations you wouldn’t have before.
