One of the most widespread and frustrating issues in Warzone history, the ‘demon gun glitch’ has returned once again after Infinity Ward deployed multiple patches to fix the problem.

Warzone players were hit with one of the most infamous issues back in August. Seemingly at random, weapons could bug out and turn into an absolute monstrosity. Textures would glitch in all shapes and sizes, often taking up most of the screen and obscuring vision.

After “fast-tracking” the problem, a patch was deployed and the glitch was taken out of commission. Ever since, players have been able to swap weapons without fearing for the rest of their run. Until now.

Unfortunately, it appears as though the horrific texture glitch is back in full effect following the latest update. Multiple players have been struck with the bug once again, so here’s what you need to look out for.

Midway through a standard quads game on September 15, popular content creator ‘Frozone’ came across the bug. “No way the glitch is back,” a member of the party said as Frozone tried to win a 1v1 with his entire screen taken up by the weapon.

Black shapes took over the Assault Rifle. All he could do was run around empty-handed to see what was in front of him. To no surprise, the enemy was able to secure an easy win in the gulag before dropping back into Verdansk.

Plenty of others responded to the clip, outlining how the issue had also been impacting their games since the latest patch. “Everyone’s favorite minor glitch is back,” Reddit user ‘da_nie11’ joked.

Infinity Ward is yet to address the issue this time around. Given how widespread it was back in August, they should be fast-tracking it once again to nip it in the bud.

For the time being, the only way to avoid the issue is to swap weapons. It can happen at random times, across all types of weapons, and in any playlist. It’s simply luck of the draw.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates as the demon gun glitch jumps back onto the developer’s radar once again.

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.
