It’s the final week before the launch of Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 6, which means it’s time for the last Double XP promo weekend for S5. Here’s everything you need to know about what’s coming this week.

The final week of Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 is finally here. While fans are eager to learn more information about the upcoming season, they’ll more than likely have to wait a couple more days before knowing exactly what new maps, modes, and weapons are coming.

Until then, players still have all the content from Season 5 to hold them over. If you’ve been looking to level up your battle pass, jump into some modes, or get a fresh new look for your character before the season officially ends, now seems to be the perfect time to hop back into both Modern Warfare and Warzone.

The big news is that another wave Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and even Double Battle Pass progression is coming, which means you’ll have help for that final push for Level 155 Tier 100 in the Battle Pass. All three boosts are set to go live on Friday, September 25, 2020, at 10:00 AM PDT / 1:00 PM EDT and will last until September 28, 2020, ending at that same time.

Multiplayer

On the Multiplayer side of things, Shipment 24/7 and Shoot House 24/7 will be activated this week. Previously, Shoot the Ship 24/7, which combined both maps into one playlist, was available but now it seems like Activision wanted to give players the option of going into either map.

In addition, a Deathmatch Domination + Drop Zone playlist is also coming, as well as the 3v3 Snipers variant mode in Gunfight, in which every weapon is a sniper rifle or marksman rifle blueprint.

Warzone

Warzone players will be able to jump back into Mini Royale Trios for the first time in a while. This mode, which was introduced at the start of Season 5, provides an expedited battle royale experience, constricting a limited number of players to a very small circle. This means that matches will generally go by quicker and certainly be more intense than the regular playlists.

This should be available alongside the regular BR Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads playlists, as well as whatever Plunder mode the devs decide to keep on.

Infinity WardMini Royale gives players all the intensity of regular battle royale but in a much smaller space and time.

Finally, when it comes to the store, players will have a couple of new bundles to purchase. Easily the most notable one is that of the ‘Beyond the Pale’ bundle, which includes a new skin for the popular Ghost Operator, as well as two weapon variants, a new weapon charm, emblem, and more. It’s set to cost 2,000 COD points, which is equivalent to around $20.

There’s also a new sniper rifle blueprint that’ll be coming as part of the ‘Notice Me: IV’ set, which also will include a weapon charm, calling card, and emblem.

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.
