Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter is a renowned Call of Duty pro player, but it turns out he’s also a natural when it comes to pushing high-performance sports cars to the limit. In his latest video, he answers the question of whether he can ‘DRIVE, DRIVE’ with great success.

Although his YouTube channel is centered around Call Of Duty, Crimsix also has a love for Porsche, with his GT3 RS being put through its paces to showcase his driving prowess.

Taking his high-performance Miami Blue Porsche GT3 RS to a track day to dust the cobwebs off, it is immediately obvious that Crimsix is as quick behind the wheel as he is in front of the screen.

With 33 LAN event wins to his name, it makes sense that someone with a love for high-octane action in the virtual world would share that love in the real world, and what a way to experience it.

Showcasing his on-track skill

The Porsche GT3 RS makes a perfect track car thanks to its lightweight nature and free-revving flat-six engine, but it does still take a lot of skill and precision to make the most of its precision German engineering.

Thankfully, Porter has skill in spades. Despite opting to leave the transmission in automatic as opposed to shifting with the paddles, he clearly has a fantastic intuition for keeping the car at the limits of its performance without going too far ‘over the top.’

There are a few sketchy moments where the GT3 RS tried to bite back, most notably at 5:48, but his experience and skill behind the wheel came into play, and disaster was quickly averted. It appears that the slide didn’t phase him at all, as he was quickly back on the tail of the car in front.

Sadly open track days have strict rules on passing, meaning that racing overtakes are strictly forbidden. Instead of passing at will, he had to wait for the car in front to move over and signal to overtake before he could floor the accelerator and send the Porsche flying past them.

Showcasing plenty of driving skills, clipping apexes, finding the racing line on the circuit, and giving a very impressive display of car control; It seems the answer is yes, yes a pro CoD player can ‘DRIVE, DRIVE.’

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.
