UPDATE: And just like that it has been removed…Sledgehammer Games has tweeted that they’ve disabled the noise. You can back out to the main menu and re-enter MP and all should be back to normal!

If you happened to miss out on this, check out this video by OpTic Midnite:

Original Story:

Looks like Sledgehammer Games is getting in on the April Fool’s jokes as well this year…try boost jumping, dodging, or any Exo movement in Advanced Warfare now and hear the noise it makes. Sounds like a clown!

Sledgehammer Games hinted at this with the image of the clown on Sideshow that they tweeted. There’s no indication as to how long those noises will stay live in-game, so be sure to check it out!

Happy April Fool’s Day!

    Is it loud enough to really give your position away?

    • Keshav Bhat

      only you can hear the noise i think

      • Bk Moe

        Nope they can hear it too. i was able to hear when the opponent exo boost.

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      Yes it is.

  • Probably a preview for the next 6$ DLC

  • k5berry

    Ah shit I never got to see it!

    IN OTHER NEWS: James C. Burns (SGT FRANK WOODS) Uploaded a video Titled HE’S BACK!


    Better news than this crap.

    • Daniel

      Btw, the video was originally titled “What the future holds”
      and he used the tag bo3 black op3 cod but after Ytubers found out he removed them

    • noobswontlie

      I think BO3 is set in the future again, the official Facebook 3arc page were posting about lasted turrets on planes.

    • ccrows

      Sooooo when does the Hype Train officially arrive?…

      • alex

        Well the first trailer is usually early may soooo I’d say now.

        • ccrows


        • IceKoldKilla

          I just realized this could be Black Ops THREE, they’re name is TREYarch as in TRES as in THREE like when they use the clan tag [3arc]… I dunno something stupid. Half-Life 3 confirmed? Naw. That’s… Well Gabe did acknowledge a series without an end is fucked up so maybe with their new engine. Back on topic, I can’t wait for the first full trailer of the next CoD. I’m excited to see Treyarch’s CoD on PS4!

    • Willy Brown

      Also Charlie Intel updates their web background to the Black Ops theme, perhaps they know something they cant speak about?

  • RdJokr

    Well shit I missed that. Would’ve been probably fun.

  • hoss

    Is my season pass disappearing and not being able to download the new maps an April fools joke too?

  • CrowReap .

    When did charlieintel change to the black ops theme?

    • Redrum

      about 3 days ago

  • Get better

    So this is why my boosts were silent in zombies.. never heard honking, just thought it had glitched out.

  • ccrows

    Ain’t gonna lie, the clown glitch bothered the S*** outta me. I kinda knew what it was about, but it threw me off and I actually ended up turning the XB1 off cuz it was too annoying.

    Would have rather seen something clever with the menus like IW usually does… 🙁

    • zombiefreak935

      Usually? They did it once.

  • Overw4tch

    It would have been better if it sounded like a fart.

  • Jesús

    April fools sound prank live on xbox, coming to playstation on May 1st.

    • zombiefreak935

      Can somebody tweet this to Activision?xD

    • Well that’d really happen

    • Aymen Skiken

      wut if they make it a dlc… only for 59,99 per game

  • zombiefreak935

    Holy shit!!!!!! Look at the charlieintel background!!!!!! Reveal Soon?

    • Guywithbrains

      Reveal is usually around May 1st but maybe we get a leak a couple of days before the actual reveal.

    • Random

      On how many articles has this been commented about now? It’s been different for days, and it likely means nothing other than they’re expecting the next game to be BO3. You people get far too excited over the most insignificant of details. Calm down already, the game will be revealed when it’s revealed.

  • Vonderhaar 1-0 Michael Condom

    The biggest joke of all is advanced warfare itself. I’m surprised the april fool wasn’t included as $4.99 DLC.

    Roll on black ops 3

    • GinsuVictim

      I can’t wait for you to hate Black Ops 3.

      • GinDum

        the new COD cycle:

        1) RandomPerson1 says “next game will be better”

        2) DeludedGuy says “I cant wait until you hate the next game”

        3) DeludedGuy doesnt realize that there are many separate opinions because many people play this game

        New Game is Released

        4) RandomPerson2 person comments about hating the new game

        5) DeludedGuy says “I was right!!!”

        6) RandomPerson3 says “I hate this game, next game will better”

        7) DeludedGuy say “You’ll hate the next game”

        The cyle continues

  • ScOott

    Would of been funnier if they announced the removal of SBMM and then said April fools … Peoples reaction would of been brilliant !

    • common sense

      Yeah, I might have actually played the game!

  • Dally

    So they can add a clown noise in 2.1 seconds but cant fix their servers ? Smh Sledgehammer.
