Weird Warzone Gulag bug breaks HusKerrs’ equipment during tournament

During Vikkstar’s $210,000 Warzone Showdown tournament, renowned streamer, HusKerrs, experienced a bizarre bug in which his lethal and tactical equipment were disabled following a trip to the Gulag.

HusKerrs is one of Call of Duty: Warzone’s most prominent players, with big recent championships in the $100,000 Minnesota ROKKR Warzone tournament and Vikkstar’s Warzone Showdown. Over the past three of the latter tournament series, he has grouped with AverageJoeWo and come within the top three places in each of the last three weeks.

The duo took first place and won $12,000 in Week 4, third place for $2,000 in Week 5, and, most recently, $12,000 for first place again in Week 6. During that championship run, the indomitable streamer hit the Gulag during his finals matchup against TeePee and UnRational. 

As soon as he hit the showers for his 1 vs. 1 Gulag duel, HusKerrs’ opponent disappeared, forfeiting the match and granting the streamer an easy return to Verdansk. Whether that be because said foe suffered an unfortunate disconnect or simply wanted to avoid the streamer’s beams is uncertain, but the fallout was an annoying glitch impacting the tournament competitor’s equipment.

As HusKerrs explains, there is a bizarre bugged continuation of the Gulag’s internal logic when you win before the timer on equipment usage runs out. In the 1 vs. 1 cage match, players are able to wield their randomized weapons immediately, but are unable to use their equipment for several seconds. If you win before that timer lets you use the equipment in the spooky subterranean bathroom, the game bugs and does not let you use equipment when you return back to Verdansk either.

“Well, I mean, I got out, but my equipment’s going to be bugged now until I die. That’s annoying.” Well-aware of the game’s weirder nuances, he casually explains to his unaware teammate that his equipment will now be unusable and proves so to his stream by subsequently grabbing his loadout, which somehow does not register that he has picked up lethal or tactical equipment.

Fortunately, the bug didn’t matter to the duo as they went on to win the event comfortably. At the moment, this issue is registered on Infinity Ward’s Trello board, where the developers have notified the public that a fix is in progress but currently incomplete.

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. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

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.
