Frustrating Warzone Rebirth Island glitch gives players infinite respawns

CoD’s battle royale problems are back as a frustrating Warzone Rebirth Island glitch seems to give players infinite respawns and ensure a win.



There is a potentially game-breaking Warzone glitch providing infinite respawns on Rebirth Island. If these bizarre set of circumstances are repeatable, then it could mean that multiple players will survive for an endless amount of time in CoD’s battle royale experience and games won’t end.

Despite Warzone’s enormous popularity across consoles, social media, and streaming services, the game continues to be plagued by one huge glitch after another. In recent weeks we’ve seen the invisibility glitch, the contract glitch, and the wall glitch.

Warzone has recently undergone a big makeover thanks to its merging with Black Ops Cold War. But a wealth of new content only masks the fact the game keeps finding new ways of breaking and hampering people’s battle royale enjoyment.

Warzone Rebirth island infinite respawn glitch

This isn’t the first instance of infinite respawning in the Warzone as it wasn’t too long ago that people were exploiting the game to create unlimited Juggernauts and become godlike. But this new bug could create a real problem of never-ending games of Warzone.

Reddit user moi865 posted a video to the game’s subreddit and it shows a weird series of events that leads to his team’s unlikely victory.

Moi865 is gunned down and his final teammate is also killed soon after. Our player is then stuck in the redeployment screen for the rest of the game and his ally keeps getting to redeploy over and over. The killfeed clearly shows the evidence of his teammate’s newfound ability to resurrect at will.

Given that his partner cannot die, he survives until the end and is able to withstand repeated exposure to the lethal gas filling the map, ultimately resulting in a Warzone Victory.

It’s a very unusual scenario that we haven’t seen before, but the big concern is the true cause of this error is unknown, and it could easily happen again and become repeatable. If multiple teams are able to replicate this glitch, then games of Warzone won’t be able to end.

This is definitely a high-priority glitch that Infinity Ward will hopefully identify and try to provide a fix for very quickly.

How to change your username in Call of Duty: Warzone & Cold War

Ever wanted to change your Activision ID? Here’s how to change your username for free in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.



How to change username in cold war & warzone

Activision lets you change your Call of Duty username free of charge, so here’s how to set a new display name in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

Changing your display name on PlayStation and Xbox can sometimes be costly, but in Call of Duty, you can change your name as many times as you like. This will only affect your CoD name, so you can keep your Gamertag or PlayStation ID for other games.

Your Activision ID will be your username followed by a hash mark (#) and a series of numbers. This means you can set your name to be whatever you like without having to worry if the name is already taken.

Activision also allows you to change your username for free. You’ll get a new name change ticket every six months but you can only carry two at a time.

Here’s how to change your username in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

How to change your Call of Duty username

If you’d like to change your Call of Duty username for Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War, here’s how to do it.

To change your Call of Duty username in-game:

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Warzone or Black Ops Cold War
  2. Press ‘Options’ on the home screen
  3. Navigate over to ‘Account’
  4. Select ‘Activision Account’
  5. Hit ‘Change Display Name’
  6. Enter your new username and hit ‘Confirm’

You can also change your Call of Duty username online, so here’s how:

  2. Hover over your username in the top right corner
  3. Click on ‘Basic Info’
  4. Select ‘Edit’ beside your Activision ID

How to report offensive Call of Duty usernames

While Activision automatically blocks offensive usernames, players can sometimes get past this by using special characters or abbreviations. If you spot an offensive username in-game, Activision lets you report them.

To report a players username or Clan Tag:

  1. Press ‘Y’ on Xbox or ‘△’ PlayStation to open the Social tab / select the Social tab on PC
  2. Select ‘Recent Players’
  3. Highlight the player you wish to report and select them
  4. Hit ‘Report Player’
  5. Select either ‘Report Username’ or ‘Report Clan Tag’

With hackers still running rampant in Warzone, you can also report cheaters through this same method.

That’s everything you need to know about changing your Call of Duty username – you’ll only get a new ticket every six months so choose your name wisely!

Crazy new cheats are making Warzone impossible to win

Warzone cheaters have begun using crazy, never-seen-before hacks that make the game impossible to win for honest players.

While Call of Duty: Warzone hackers have been aim-botting and wall-hacking since the game’s launch, these cheaters have now found brand new ways to hack their way to wins.

Although Activision have permanently banned almost half a million cheaters since Warzone’s launch in 2020, some still slip through the cracks.

You can usually spot cheaters with blatant aim-bot while spectating them, and some even upload their footage to TikTok and Facebook. But sometimes wall-hacks and a soft aim-lock are more difficult to spot. With Activision confirming they are giving hardware bans to repeat offenders, cheaters likely don’t want to get caught.

However, one of Warzone’s top players, Stephen “Yungstaz” Galloway, found a cheater blatantly showing off a plethora of new hacks, such as auto live pinging every player in the lobby, equipping night vision goggles, and repeatedly changing their name.

In a clip uploaded to his Twitter account, Yungstaz said that “hackers are evolving.” With never-before-seen cheats, we can see that every player in the lobby is being live-pinged by the hacker. Not only do they aim-lock and kill players through walls, but they somehow also equip night vision goggles, usually reserved for Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.

While cheats usually only benefit the cheater and not the rest of their team, this live ping cheat likely gives wall-hacks to the entire squad, making the game the game impossible to win for honest players. Yungstaz and his squad were understandably confused, with the streamer saying they’ve “never seen this from a hacker before.”

After the game had finished, Yungstaz invited the cheater to his lobby for a chat on-stream.

Warzone cheaters wallhacks

As the cheater changed his username over and over, which you can usually only do once every six months, they asked him how long he had been cheating on that account. He told them he had been blatantly cheating for “five months” without any bans being issued.

When pressed on how much the hacks cost, the cheater said “they are not for sale.” The streamers drew the conclusion that he had made the cheats himself, so it’s comforting to know these hacks might not be being passed on.

How many players have been banned from Warzone?

Mass amounts of CoD: Warzone accounts are being banned to clamp down on cheating, but just how many have been banned so far?



cod warzone ban cheating

The mission to end cheating in Warzone is well underway as thousands of Warzone accounts are being hit with constant ban waves. But how many CoD accounts have Raven Software been able to permanently ban from the battle royale?

Despite all of Warzone’s success with its staggering numbers and projected longevity, it’s hard to ignore the huge eyesore that has plagued Call of Duty’s elite battle royale experience – hacking and cheating.

From deliberate aimbotting to blatant knowledge of where other players are, thousands of Warzone accounts are effectively ruining the game for others. Exploiting the Stim Glitch for the sixth time is taking advantage of a dev error, but blatantly breaking the game yourself to secure an easy win is a whole different kettle of fish.

Raven Software is continually rolling out large-scale bans to accounts that are found to be guilty of cheating, but just how many have been banned so far?

Raven Software & Activision banning cheaters

Call of Duty received an Official Statement regarding cheating and hackers on February 2, 2021, and it addressed the state of Warzone going forward. It basically reinforced the devs zero tolerance for cheating, showed how they were going to step up their efforts, and threatened more bans for any wrongdoing.

The problem was addressed more publically via the game’s Twitter page and essentially issued a warning to all players.

At the time of this statement, they had confirmed: “more than 300,000 permabans worldwide since launch.” However, the ban waves seem to be becoming more frequent as the urgency to eradicate these unsportsmanlike practices continues to escalate.

Since the resounding blog post, we’ve had the following confirmed ban waves:

Each wave is usually 15,000-30,000 accounts, and Activision recently issues a statement declaring that so far they have banned a staggering 475,000 accounts since Warzone launched.

We can expect this number to keep growing throughout the year, and we will continue to update that figure as the fight continues.

Does CoD: Warzone have an anti-cheat system?

The Call of Duty team has confirmed that Warzone does indeed have some kind of anti-cheat system in place citing recent: “Enhancements to our internal anti-cheat software.”

There are no details to understand the full extent of how the system works, but it’s obvious that it’s not foolproof given that Raven Software is manually delivering ban waves.

However, Warzone is becoming an absolute force, and to become fully competitive, you’d imagine that greater restrictions and improvements will happen in the future.
