Frustrating Warzone contract glitch is crashing the game

Warzone is plagued by a host of bugs and glitches, and the latest one is a frustrating Warzone contract glitch that is crashing the game.

Published

Despite being two days away from its integration into Black Ops Cold War, Warzone is on the receiving end of another troublesome glitch. It’s not only causing worryingly high lag spikes, but it will boot the player out of the server altogether.

It’s fair to say that Infinity Ward’s Warzone has seen its fair share of major glitches since its launch. From a game-breaking wall glitch to an exploit that gives players unlimited juggernauts.

It seems that a new problem becomes apparent each and every week. Well, this week is no different as a brand new glitch has been discovered that can actually break your game and kick you from the server.

New Contract Warzone bug

Contracts are supposed to add an extra layer of depth and strategy to Warzone as they can increase the money you have, which increases your chances of better equipment and even getting your own loadout.

One example of the glitch in action comes courtesy of Reddit user – Jeremy625. One of the newest additions to the Warzone map, in Season 5, is a train. Another newer feature of Warzone is King Slayer Trios, this is where the glitch seems to occur.

The worrying thing about this glitch is that it’s not even Jeremy625 that triggers the bug – his teammate does.

In the video, you can quite clearly see that the train in the street, with the exposed carriage, contains one of Jeremy625’s partners. Once the contract has been collected, his avatar starts spiraling out of control almost instantly.

After nearly 15 seconds of being bounced around the map, the screens flicks to black, an error message eventually pops, and they are back at the main menu screen.

Here is the full video for an example of how you can go about avoiding this contract glitch.

At the moment, it does seem like picking up that contract is basically off-limits until a fix can be found. It might be advisable to play a different mode that isn’t King Slayer Trios too in case there are more bugs.

Until the information becomes a bit more widespread, teams are likely to suffer – especially ones that aren’t on the headset and communicating with each other – as it only takes one squad member to cause the crash.

Payload combat in Warzone

Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded update brought a ton of new content, and now the unique Payload game mode has arrived. Here’s everything you need to know about Warzone’s Payload, including some top tips on how to win.

There’s always a ton of excitement when a new update drops, and Season 4 Reloaded is no exception. It added a ton of weapon buffs and nerfs, a new Sentry Gun killstreak, and the new OTs 9 SMG, among other additions.

Now, a week after the Reloaded update, the new Payload game mode has arrived. It has a lot in common with the traditional multiplayer mode, with one team having to escort an objective across the map while the other tries to stop them. Overwatch fans will be especially familiar with Payload, as it’s almost exactly the same as Overwatch’s original mode.

Here’s everything you need to know about this objective-based mode, and some top tips on how to win.

How to play Payload in Warzone

Following a Warzone playlist update on July 22, Payload arrived in Warzone. You can access it from the main lobby screen, where it has replaced the standard battle royale mode’s position on the list. No to worry though, you can still find normal BR at the bottom of the page.

Each Warzone Payload match will consist of 40 players that are equally divided into two teams. One side will start near vehicle objectives that must be escorted through Verdansk, while the other will be tasked with stopping the attackers.

The defenders will start elsewhere on the map and will need to stop the objective from passing through all the checkpoints before the timer finishes counting down. So, both sides will need to act fast in Warzone Payload.

If you’re on the defending team, you’ll have the ability to construct unique obstacles to stop the vehicles from progressing. Use it to bring them to a halt and take out as many attackers as you can. 

Tips and tricks for winning Payload

Warzone Season 4 Payload

It goes without saying that you should play the objective. Payload is a great place to engage in constant action and level up weapons, so it can be easy to get distracted. But by playing the objective, either getting inside the vehicle’s escort perimeter or keeping enemies out of it, you’ll be a major help in bringing your team to victory.

This game mode allows you to stockpile your money so that you can purchase different Killstreaks. Save up before bringing down Airstrikes and the previously secret Bomb Drone Killstreak to clear all enemies in your way. This will buy you more time to plan out a new tactic.

The good news is that whenever you’re killed, you’ll respawn with your full loadout. So, don’t hesitate in trying out different weapons that suit a variety of combat situations. For example, you can swap to an SMG or Shotgun for close-range encounters when playing Warzone Payload.

If you’re on the attacking team, then you also need to watch out for any obstacles on the path. These will act as a barrier between your objective and the next checkpoint so try to steer clear of them as much as you can. Defenders should make sure barricades are always being built.

Why Warzone’s QBZ-83 is Season 4’s most underrated weapon

The QBZ-83 is Warzone’s most underrated weapon, so we’ve broken down why you should consider running it in Season 4.

Published

on

Warzone QBZ-83 Assault Rifle

The QBZ-83 is one of the best weapons in Warzone Season 4, but hardly anyone uses it. We’ve got the stats and the best loadout to prove why you should give this weapon a try.

Thanks to significant balance tweaks in Warzone Season 4 and its Reloaded update, weapon balance is in a great spot. Warzone now features plenty of viable Assault Rifles, SMGs, and Sniper Rifles from both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War.

However, there’s one weapon that received a significant buff in Season 4 Reloaded and is now one of the best in its class: the QBZ-83. It was unfortunately so bad before Season 4 that it wasn’t even on players’ radar, but here’s why you should give it another chance.

Best Warzone QBZ Loadout

By looking at the stats on WZ Ranked on July 23, we can see that the QBZ-83 has a 0.6% pick ratio in Warzone Season 4, which puts it as the 32nd most used weapon. This puts it behind guns such as the Kilo 141 and AX-50, which are perhaps some of the least effective weapons in their classes.

The likely reason why nobody picks the QBZ-83 is that it was next to useless before Season 4 Reloaded. However, it received some major buffs which appear to have gone under the radar for the majority of players. Not only did it get a buff, but a ton of other weapons got nerfed, which only improved the QBZ further.

YouTuber JGOD, who’s renowned for breaking down every weapon and its stats in incredible detail, recently discussed the QBZ-83. He compared it to the Krig 6, which is probably its closest rival for a low-recoil Assault Rifle.

JGOD reveals QBZ's recoil pattern

He revealed that with the Task Force barrel on the QBZ, the recoil goes up in a straight line. So, controlling it couldn’t be easier – just pull down slightly on your analog stick or mouse. And as a plus, it even has a faster ADS speed than the Krig.

For accurate players, the QBZ’s time to kill is where it really shines. When hitting the head and chest, it actually kills faster than the Krig 6. So if you can line up those accurate shots and control the recoil, you’ll find the QBZ especially effective.

However, the damage drops off significantly at extremely long range and when hitting the stomach and limbs. JGOD suggests using it alongside a Sniper Rifle to take advantage of its damage sweet spot.

JGOD reveals the QBZ-83's time to kill

Now, the QBZ isn’t the be-all and end-all in Warzone Season 4. You still need to hit your shots, and weapons such as the C58 can outgun it. But, its solid time to kill and low recoil makes it an extremely solid choice, and incredibly underrated.

It’s a shame that the QBZ-83 was so bad before because that’s probably what put players off using it even after it got buffed. Now after the Reloaded update, it deserves to be up there with Season 4’s most popular guns.

If you’re looking to try something different from the FARA 83, Krig, or C58, you should try the QBZ and feel the difference the Reloaded update made.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Grip: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: STANAG 60 Rnd Drum

If you’re looking to give the QBZ-83 a try, these are the attachments you should be running. As JGOD explained, the 15.5″ Task Force barrel eliminates any horizontal recoil, while also boosting its effectiveness over range.

To keep you off the minimap and further improve range and recoil control, there’s no better option than the Agency Suppressor. Then, to make sure you’re hitting the head and upper chest shots at range, the Axial Arms 3x is a solid choice.

Then, we go with the Field Agent Grip and 60 Rnd Mags, which are necessary for almost any Cold War Assault Rifle build.

And that’s it! More players need to try out the QBZ-83 in Warzone Season 4, as it’s one of the best, but most underrated, ARs in the game.

Season 4 has given the Milano a big boost in Call of Duty: Warzone, so here are the attachments and perks you should use to make the best loadout.

Milano in Warzone

SMGs are a reliable choice in Warzone, and you can do a ton of damage with The Milano. Here’s how you can further improve it with the best Warzone Season 4 Milano loadout.

You’ll find yourself engaging in a variety of different combat situations when you jump into a match of Warzone, and you’ll make use of different weapons in each one. SMGs are ideal for close-range engagements.

The Milano 821 received a few nerfs in the Season 4 Reloaded update, which has affected its recoil, damage range, and multipliers. However, it’s still one of the best SMGs in the game, and you can improve it with the right loadout.

Here is the best Warzone Milano loadout in Season 4.

Warzone Milano 821 attachments

Best Warzone Milano loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 10.6″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Stock: SAS combat stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd Drum

We’ll start with this Warzone Milano loadout with the Agency Suppressor to increase the damage range and bullet velocity of this SMG. You’ll also get better control over vertical recoil, and the sound suppression is great for stealth.

You’ll want to be able to move through close quarters quickly while firing, and the 10.6″ Task Force will let you strafe faster. It will also further improve the damage, effective damage range, and bullet velocity.

We picked the Axial Arms 3x so that we have a clear and precise optic for the Milano 821. It will slightly reduce your ADS speed, but that’s not a noticeable loss for an SMG.

The SAS Combat Stock will provide another powerful boost to your mobility, allow you to move faster while shooting and boosting your aim walking speed. This will slightly reduce your hip-fire accuracy.

Finally, you’ll want to ensure that you have enough bullets to secure victory, and using the STANAG 55 Rnd drum magazine will help you with that.

Best perks for Warzone Milano class

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Tracker

You’ll need to be fast when you get into close and medium-range encounters, and Double Time will allow you to run for longer periods of time. Now, you’ll be able to get away from enemies.

While the attachments will help make up for the damage range that was lost in the Season 4 Reloaded update, we recommend getting Overkill so that you can equip a longer-ranged gun to accompany the Milano, such as the Swiss K31.

You can then select Ghost from your second loadout drop, allowing you to avoid enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Detectors. Finally, the Amped perk will allow you to swap weapons much quicker.

How to unlock the Milano in Warzone

If you want to get your hands on this SMG to make the best Warzone Milano loadout, simply play until you reach Level 13. The weapon will become unlocked at this point, and you’ll be able to use it in Verdansk.

With Black Ops Cold War being integrated into Warzone, the gun will be available for you to use in both of these titles.

Best Milano alternatives

The Milano 821 is an excellent weapon, but if you’re looking for an SMG with a faster fire rate, then the PPSH-41 is a viable option.
