Warzone watches will expose you through walls to enemies

Call of Duty: Warzone players have discovered that wearing certain watches in-game will make it possible for them to be seen through walls and other spots, handing their enemies an advantage.

Since Warzone was released back in March, players have been trying to find different ways to get a leg up over their opponents so that they can keep racking up win after win. 

Some players will keep it simple and rock an overpowered weapon loadout, while others dive into cheats – even though some have been punished for their hacks. Though, due to a number of bugs and different issues in-game, the game itself will sometimes give players a helping hand.

Previously, players could see enemy movement through doors and walls by aiming near where they assumed the enemies were hidden. Now though, there is another problem, and it revolves around two watches.

The Strange Magic watch is one of the two causing issues.

The unusual problem was pointed out by Reddit user Khurlauss, who shared a clip of himself showing that the Strange Magic and Time of the Season watches can be seen through walls.

Why this happens seems to stem from the fact that they aren’t a typical watch. Instead, they display the time through orange and green glows that float just away from a player’s body.

The Redditor showed just how big of an advantage it gives Warzone players by replaying a clip of himself in the Gulag. As he ran towards the center, the glow of the enemy’s watch quickly shone behind the wall. It might have only been a small speck on the screen, but it is noticeable and allowed the Redditor to outplay his opponent for the win.

As of writing, the issue has not been highlighted on Infinity Ward’s public Trello board, so it’s unknown as to whether or not they are aware of it. 

Given that the next Warzone season – the first in Black Ops Cold War – is set to start in mid-December, players will want as clean a slate as possible, and that includes fixing the watches.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
