A DISASTROUS glitch in Call of Duty Warzone is allowing players to cheat their way to victory.
The exploit, which emerged following a major update to the battle royale game yesterday, makes it possible to turn your character invisible.
Players can then run around the map without being seen, making them almost impossible to kill and ruining the game.
The bug was reported by players on social media on Wednesday within hours of the release of Season One, Warzone’s first major map update.
“Just when I thought glitches in #Warzone couldn’t get any worse … there is now a glitch that makes a player invisible,” one fuming gamer tweeted.
Another claimed they came across a full squad of players using the invisibility hack.
“What bulls**t to start the new season with same old problems,” they wrote.
Apparently, the glitch is triggered by performing a manoeuvre that involves switching seats while sitting in a helicopter.
Treyarch has not yet issued a comment on the issue, though it’s likely it will fix it in a future software update.
The Sun has reached out to Activision, which publishes Call of Duty, for comment.
What is Black Ops Cold War Season One?
Season One is the first major multiplayer update for the latest Call of Duty game, Black Ops Cold War.
It merges Black Ops Cold War – which hit shelves last month – with Call of Duty’s free-to-play battle royale game mode, Warzone.
Players’ progression and stats now synchronise across both titles.
In a blog post earlier this month, Treyarch excitedly talked Season One up as the “largest free content drop in Black Ops history”.
What to expect from Season One
Season One introduces major changes to both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
Warzone has a new map and mode, as well as two new Gulag battlegrounds for players to enjoy.
Rebirth Island is only the second map to hit the battle royale game since it launched in March 2020.
It’s smaller than Verdasnk – the game mode’s first map – with fewer players per game as a result.
Warzone fans also benefit from the addition of more than 30 Black Ops Cold War weapons.
Players ca now access Warzone from both the Modern Warfare and Cold War menus.
Black Ops Cold War, on the other hand, has received a fresh suite of multiplayer maps – including Raid from Black Ops 2.
On top of all that, Treyarch has added new Zombies modes.
Black Ops Cold War Season One release date and time
Season One rolled out today on PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
As with previous CoD updates, Treyarch launched the download at roughly 2am ET (7am UK time).
When Season One drops, players can expect a hefty file to hit their consoles that will likely take a fair chunk of time to download.
The most recent update to 2019’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare took up a whopping 50GB of gamers’ hard drive space.
That means the game now demands a total of 250GB of free drive space, rendering it unplayable on some PCs.
Why was Season One delayed?
Season One was originally due for release on December 10 before Treyarch pushed it back by almost a week.
In a blog post announcing the delay, Treyarch said developers needed more time to prepare the “unprecedented amount of free content” on the way.
“We’re taking a few more days to finalise everything before unleashing this massive drop of new, free content to the community,” the firm wrote.
“The teams are currently prepping for the biggest Season One launch week ever seen.”
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War – what is it?
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is the latest game in the hugely popular war sim series.
It hits shelves in November and plays out at the height of nuclear tensions between the US and Soviet Russia.
The storyline follows the real-world events of the Cold War – such as the Vietnam War – but will dramatise some elements.
An early teaser trailer revealed has that the game will include a hunt for Perseus – a spy working against the US for Russia.
The Cold War was a period of major tension between the USA and Soviet Union, but wasn’t an outright war in the conventional sense.
Instead, both nations supported “proxy wars” – regional conflicts used to gain global influence.
And the fact that both nations controlled nuclear weaponry meant that neither side was willing to risk a war proper.
The period is generally said to have run from 1947 through to 1991 – when the Soviet Union was dissolved.
Out November 13, Black Ops Cold War starts at £59.99 for a standard copy rising all the way to £89.99 for the Ultimate Edition.
