Call Of Duty: Warzone Helicopters Were Making Players Invisible
The vehicles have been temporarily removed from the game.
Call of Duty: Warzone players ran into another major glitch in Activision's mega-popular battle royale. Players had found that they'd become invisible if they switched to the gunner seat in a chopper, crash it, and then revive themselves among the wreckage. Invisible players became menace to the game before choppers were removed.
Some players took it upon themselves to destroy all the helicopters on the map as soon as the game started so no one could take advantage of the glitch. Activision, Infinity Ward, and Raven Software responded by removing the chopper from the game altogether. There is no timeline on a fix for the issue.
This is the latest of many of Warzone's game-breaking bugs that have frustrated players. They have taken advantage of other bugs--like one that lets them spawn multiple juggernaut suits--to gain an advantage over the competition. The most recent update that merged Black Ops Cold War and Warzone has caused a number of other issues as well.
This invisibility-causing bug isn't particularly new in the battle royale genre. Fortnite had a similar glitch that forced Epic Games to remove the big mudflap truck from the game. A bug made players invisible, similar to the chopper situation in Warzone.
There are a number of other problems with Warzone's most recent update--including how poorly balanced Black Ops Cold War weapons are now that they're available in the battle royale. Issues like these are common when a big update comes to a live service game, although players hope Activision moves quickly to fix them.
