Incredible Modern Warfare cosplay spawns Nikto into real life

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Spetsnaz Operator Nikto has been spawned into real life with this incredible cosplay.

With Ghost being all the rage in Modern Warfare throughout Season 2, Nikto’s release during the first season has seemingly flown under the radar.


Representing the Allegiance faction, Nikto flies the Spetsnaz banner in-game along with Bale, Minotaur and Rodion. Although what makes the Operator stand-out from the crowd is his face — or lack thereof.

Nikto’s face was disfigured after being captured and tortured by Imran Zakhaev, so he wears a mask to cover his scars.

With his identity concealed, the elusive character sports a full Russian g-suit and is available via the in-game store.


After producing a spot-on cosplay of Modern Warfare’s Ghost (complete with authentic army scrubs to the trademark skull-patterned mask), Inzzen has plucked Nikto straight out of Infinity Ward’s blockbuster title and brought him to life.

“The Nikto loadout was a hard challenge to make,” Inzzen told Dexerto. “From the mask to the final product, it took me nine hours to build it!”


Call of Duty fans with eagle-eyes will pick-up on the attention to detail, including the text on the plate carrier and the khaki green jacket which sits underneath the heavy armor.

Inzzen explained that obtaining the g-suit was the most difficult part of the build. “The hardest part of the outfit was to find the Russian g-suit that the pilots wore! But thanks to grey-shop they made it possible, by finding the g-suit and sending it to me!”

In terms of Inzzen’s next project, he’ll be looking to recreate Season 2’s antagonist, Mace — which will look iconic next to his Ghost cosplay. “My next project is Mace — so stay tuned for that!”


Inzzen’s cosplay talents don’t just stop there, as his Instagram is littered with a variety of military-themed cosplays. Check out the rest of their Instagram, to see just how Inzzen’s cosplays speak for themselves.

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.
