A recent post on Reddit by user csvolts has exposed a pretty significant bug in Call of Duty Warzone that downs a player when they attempt to use a looted heatbeat sensor.
As you can see from the video above, csvolts picked up the heartbeat sensor and, upon using it, was instantly downed. This happened again after he was revived as well, and there were apparently no enemies in the vicinity that could have downed him. Comments in the thread has also confirmed that it’s happened to others as well.
As you know, the heartbeat sensor is meant to help show the location of other enemies, but in this case, its definitely doing more harm than good. Watching the video, it appears as if the heartbeat sensor kills off the user by the time it reaches the 75-percent scan area. This isn’t the only bug in the game, as others are complaining about poor connection issues as well. Infinity Ward has...
According to a recent datamine, there’s word circling that the next Call of Duty: Warzone map could be set in Urzikstan, and it could even arrive as soon as Season 4. The leak comes by the way of a video posted by Reddit moderator DougDagnabbit, that is claimed to have been found from Warzone files attached to Season 4 assets.
As you can see from the video above, the video is very short, and is a top-down view of the map of Spec Ops activity in the fictional Russian regions of the game. The video opens with a close-up of Verdansk, which you know as the current Warzone map, and pans out to reveal the Urzikstan region to the northwest. We assume that this is the opening sequence for the introduction of the new map, but your guess is really as good as ours at this point.
Oddly enough, this video is similar to the cinematic that was shown last year...
If you’re not a fan of Modern Warfare’s spin-off, Call of Duty: Warzone, then you’re probably not going to be happy to hear this. On the other hand, if you are a fan, then I have good news for you: Warzone is going to stick around and become a standard for all future COD games released by Infinity Ward and Activision.
The news alongside news that Duos mode would be coming to Warzone in an interview with Gamergen. Taylor Kurosaki, Infinity Ward’s Narrative Director, said that “Warzone will be te through line that connects all of the different various sub-franchises of Call of Duty.”
"It’s going to be really cool to see how the different sub-franchises sort of come in and out of focus, but Warzone will be the one constant,” he continued, explaining that "I know that our plan is Warzone is going to be around for quite some time, so as soon as those new systems are out and available, I’m sure we’ll...
Outside of the limited time option to play Duos in Plunder, Call of Duty: Warzone has been largely without the option to team up with you buddy. Well, you can if you decide to forgo adding other people to your trios and quads lineup, but then you’re at a huge disadvantage. As it turns out, Infinity Ward has listened to our desires and are working on bringing duos to Warzone, hopefully as a permanent fixture.
In a recent interview with GamerGen, Raven’s Creative Director, Amos Hodge, admitted that both studios are aware of the overwhelming demand for a duos mode. And, it’s currently in development, but there are some bugs to work out. Hodge stopped short on setting expectations for when the mode will make its way to Warzone, but this is promising news nonetheless.
“We had Duos on Plunder, but I'm not sure where Duos is, we got some bugs to work out with Duos. But we're listening to the community - if you noticed,...
The April 28 update to Cal of Duty Modern Warfare brought about some new content, but the biggest takeaway was a new gun, some playlist updates, and a lot of bug fixes. However, dataminers have no uncovered at least 13 new game modes for Warzone, something that could explain why the latest update surpassed the 15GB threshold.
Along with the new Warzone game modes that are, most likely, limited-time modes that will be swapped with each new update or weekend, was some information regarding the Red Acess Cars that have been appearing in Warzone. According to the Datamine, there are three different colors of card – red, blue, and green – and the various secret bunkers hidden around the map can now have successful codes input into them. We assume this has to do with the access cars, but their full purpose or how the codes will be input to the secret bunkers remains to be seen.
As for the new Warzone game modes, here’s a...
The April 28 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare brought about a lot of changes, to both Modern Warfare Multiplayer and Warzone. One of the more interesting bits from the official patch notes is the introduction of a new contract in Warzone. I’m talking about, of course, the “Most Wanted Contract.” So what is the Most Wanted Contract, and what does it do? That’s a good question.
The Most Wanted Contract raises the stakes in Warzone for individual players and their squad, but it comes at a cost. If you pick up a Most Wanted Contract, you will “make yourself a Bounty Target for all teams in Verdansk.” In other words, you’ll be highlighted for everyone else playing that specific match. If you survive the time limit, you’ll earn a free redeployment for all of your fallen teammates.
So, when does taking the Most Wanted Contract make sense?
Well, considering the reward is limited to only those who have fallen, not those...
Update 4/29/2020: EA has finally released the full patch notes for the April 28 update, and there's a lot. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see the official notes and learned about some of the smaller, behind-the-scenes changes.
Update 4/28/2020: We now know a little more about today’s big update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the biggest takeaway from it is the new MK9 Bruen LMG – the very same gun shown off in a leak yesterday. Moving forward, there’s also an update in Gunsmith that now allows you to blend your blueprints together to make a seemingly infinite combination of gun designs (example shown below.)
The Shoot the Ship playlist as, in fact, returned to online multiplayer, and you can apparently get in on some Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Tier Progression. The new Obsidian Camo has been added to the game, but Infinity Ward says you’ll have to...
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare had its own problem with cheaters but once Warzone launched, cheaters started coming out of the woodwork. So far, Infinity Ward has banned 50,000+ cheaters from the game, and it’s only made a small dent in an ongoing problem of people using cheats that guarantee headshots, auto-aiming, invincibility, and the like. While it might be fun for the person running the cheats, it sucks for the rest of us. Instead of banning people outright, however, Infinity Ward has a novel solution. It’s going to start grouping all cheaters together and force them to play against one another.
This solution will come as part of an update that will increase security across both Modern Warfare and Warzone, add notifications for when reported players have been banned, and will add report-a-player functionality to both killcam and spectate modes.
So far, there’s no specific...
When it comes to Fortnite, it’s pretty clear that you either love it or hate it; there’s no in between. Regardless of which side of the fence you sit on, we can all agree that Fortnite has managed to keep players continuously engaged with new events and an ever-evolving storyline. Now, it looks like Call of Duty: Warzone, which has grown to at least 50 million players in a very short time, is going to use a play out of the same playbook – at least to an extent, anyway.
First off, let me just clear the air and say that you can rest assured that Warzone isn’t going to become too much like Fortnite. There won’t be crazy building antics, weird Marvel hero tie-ins, or a black hole that sudden swallows up the map. However, Warzone’s narrative will continue by the tie-in of story elements from Modern Warfare, future DLCs and, perhaps, even future Call of Duty games.
This is already...
Look, we know you’re tired of isolation, but on the plus side, you have more time to play video games, and this weekend is set to be a big one if you’re a Call of Duty: Warzone or Modern Warfare player. Right now, a new limited time mode has launched, and this weekend, you’ll get to enjoy double XP.
First, let’s start with that new limited-time game mode. Called Scopes and Scatter Guns Trios, things are pretty straightforward – you’ll play in teams of three and the entire weapons catalog is reduced to nothing more that shotguns and sniper rifles. As Activision describes it, it’s a “twist on Battle Royale that brings you into new ranges of play.” They should have probably just called it campers and runners, but that’s a discussion for another time.
Moving on to what is, arguably, more important: The double XP weekend. Starting April 17 at 10AM PT/1PM ET/6PM BST you’ll be able to double up all experience points earned from...
