A new glitch in Raven Software’s Call of Duty: Warzone is preventing players from effectively using the Kar98k marksman rifle.
Raven Software’s Call of Duty: Warzone is no stranger to bugs and glitches; players have been dealing with issues of varying degree since the game’s release in March 2020. Some of the problems create funny, meme-worthy situations that are good for a laugh, while others have led to much player frustration. Though the developer seems to actively and constantly be working on bug fixes, some Call of Duty: Warzone glitches are still present even after patches.
Even small additions haven’t always made it into the title without issues. Like many games this time of year, a special bundle with limited-time cosmetics was recently added to the multiplayer shooter in celebration of the Lunar New Year. Unfortunately, Raven Software soon had to disable the Lunar New Year bundle in Call of Duty: Warzone due to crashes, which were caused by an included blueprint for the Stg 44 from Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Another Call of Duty: Warzone bug has popped up recently, which is impacting players’ ability to use a popular marksman rifle. The Kar98k has been an option for snipers in every Call of Duty game set during World War 2, as well as a few other entries in the franchise like Black Ops, Modern Warfare, and of course Warzone. However, the new issue prevents players from sighting through the scope because the lens is opaque or black. This means that gamers wanting to use the Kar98k must resort to hip firing which, despite the weapon’s high damage and easy handling, is not ideal for a marksman rifle. Luckily, the issue seems to fix itself just as arbitrarily as it materializes, with some users reporting that it disappeared after a few minutes and others stating that shooting in the air took care of the problem.
Another recent issue in the battle royale occurs when people attempt to pick up loot from the ground. A Reddit user shared a video of themselves approaching an MP-40 SMG in Call of Duty: Warzone that reacted like a flashbang grenade when the player got too close. A white cloud appeared around the submachine gun and obscured the screen for a few seconds before dissipating. Comments on the Reddit post have revealed that other players have experienced the strange bug as well, on both PC and PS4.
The seemingly never-ending carousel of issues players encounter in Call of Duty: Warzone may be due to the frequency with which the games are launched. With Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard, the annual releases of Call of Duty games may slow down, giving developers the time to polish their work and fix potential issues before pushing new titles out the door.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
