Call of Duty’s iconic battle royale experience has just been revamped with a brand new sequel titled Warzone 2. The free-to-play game launched on November 16, alongside Modern Warfare 2’s first season.
Despite its massive success in terms of traffic, the launch didn’t go very smoothly, as several players reported experiencing game-breaking bugs and server crashes. In fact, some players have now discovered a stubborn bug that mimics a well-known issue from 2019’s Warzone.
According to reports, Warzone’s infamous invisible skin glitch has returned to annoy players in the sequel. The clip in the tweet above shows the player being hit out of nowhere. It almost appears to be a hack without an explanation. Needless to say, this flaw gives an unintended advantage to some while taking away a fair in-game environment from others.
Warzone 2 now has the infamous invisible glitch from the 2019 pregame
Over the years of its existence, Warzone has had several players encounter invisible enemies and eliminate them, thus leaving them in despair. The issue kept reappearing randomly (after updates), even though Activision distributed a patch for it each time it reappeared. The problem has apparently spread to Warzone’s sequel now.
The highly successful Call of Duty: Warzone (2019) was taken offline on November 16 to make it easier for the developers to focus on the latest game. However, the removal is only temporary and the developers will relaunch the iconic game as Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera on November 28.
Essentially a revamped Warzone 2019, Warzone Caldera will be available as a standalone experience alongside Warzone 2.0.
Since its launch, the old Warzone has served as a versatile free-to-play battle royale game. However, the popular experience was not immune to glitches and bugs. Players often reported having issues that either broke the game or made it creepy. That said, Activision, Infinity Ward, and Raven Software kept things moving by frequently distributing patches for the reported issues.
As for the invisible bug in Warzone 2, the developers have yet to acknowledge the bug’s existence. However, a fix is expected to be deployed sooner rather than later. It is currently being determined what the exact trigger behind the failure is in the latest sequel. However, players should refrain from abusing the bug as it could trigger the Ricochet Anti-Cheat system to impose a ban.
Warzone 2 is available as a free-for-all experience on all major platforms: PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The game can be downloaded via Battle.net, Steam or online stores on consoles .
