Hilarious Black Ops Cold War glitch leaves player legless

Another amusing instance of CoD gone wrong has occurred as a hilarious Black Ops Cold War glitch that leaves a player legless has surfaced.

Published

An incredible BOCW bug is making the rounds on social media, which appears to show a player become temporarily disconnected from their body mid-game.

Imagine that you’ve just spawned and are about to seek furious vengeance on whomever just added a +1 to your death count. Now, imagine that your legs are so angry that they’re trying to get to that person before you do.

Well, that’s the sort of blink-twice moment that has happened to a CoD player recently. The almost unbelievable video isn’t something we can say has ever happened to us during a game of Call of Duty.

Hasn’t got the legs anymore

During a game of Nuketown, Reddit user thunder spud is casually running towards the house in front of him when a weird anomaly appears in front of him…the lower half of his avatar.

In something out of black comedy film, the legs seemingly become self-aware and realize the error of their ways. They suddenly stop and this leads to a reunion for thunder spud as he momentarily stops to rejoins his lower-half. He then carries on as if this literal out-of-body experience has never happened.

You can see the amazing video in all of its glory below.

This unexplainable aberration provoked some great responses from the community too. Some of our favorites were these:

“So this is how a 2nd person video game looks like,” “Is this a new decoy perk?” “My minds telling me nooo….but my body…my body is telling me yes”.

Others just simply showed their disappointment in the endless stream of glitches and bugs that Black Ops Cold War continues to reel out. This is probably another bullet point on Treyarch‘s to-do list that seems to be increasing day-by-day.

Black Ops Cold War dev responds to thermal scope glitch

A glitch causing Black Ops Cold War’s thermal scopes’ ‘batteries to die’ has been addressed by Treyarch’s Community Manager.

Published

A Black Ops Cold War glitch that turned the thermal optic into a regular scope has been addressed by a developer, with a fix planned for a future major update.

Black Ops Cold War had a shaky start, with many bugs and glitches affecting the game. It’s understandable, as BOCW, along with many other video games, has been developed during a global pandemic.

This doesn’t make it any less frustrating for players, and Treyarch has been hard at work addressing these issues. You can keep an eye on all known issues and their status on Activision’s official Trello Board.

A new glitch recently popped up, where the thermal scope lost its effect, so a Treyarch developer responded, revealing a fix is in the works.

Black Ops Cold War glitched thermal scope

A Black Ops Cold War player uploaded a video to Reddit where it appears the battery in their thermal scope had died. The effect was gone, but the reticle appeared the same, confirming that this is a broken thermal scope.

 

As another Reddit user pointed out, while the thermal optic failed, they were in the radius of a Jammer. This wasn’t the problem though, as the effect remained well after they had left the area, and persisted until they died.

Thermal scopes are great for spotting far off enemies, so it must have been frustrating for this special scope to lose its effect.

Treyarch’s Community Manager Josh Torres, also known as FoxHoundFPS, confirmed that this was indeed a glitch. Torres said he has shared the thread with the team, and explained that they’re “tracking a fix for this in a future major update.”

When BOCW first launched, certain scopes could appear upside down on next-gen consoles, but Treyarch was quick to address this. We can expect a fix for this unusual issue soon.

If you have any glitches such as this to report to Black Ops Cold War devs, you can follow our simple guide on how to report bugs to Treyarch.

How to freeze the timer in Black Ops Cold War’s Cranked Zombies mode

Cranked is BOCW’s speedy Zombies mode and requires the player to beat a timer. Here’s how you can freeze the timer in the Cranked game mode.

cod bocw cranked timer glitch

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 saw Cranked make its first appearance as a Zombies mode, and players have found a new glitch that freeze’s the timer mid-game.

The fresh Zombies mode is all about speed and fast-thinking. This is more apparent as a big timer is plastered on the screen, counting down, and constantly reminding you of this. To prevent the “Game Over” screen, you need to keep replenishing your time by scoring kills from the undead.

Though that sense of urgency can be forgotten about if you can enforce the timer glitch that’s been discovered. If performed correctly, the clock will permanently stop and give you all the time in the world to survive.

BOCW Cranked Zombies glitch

Content creator Caspahz has been able to find a way to make the timer one less enemy for yourself. It’s a simple and easy set of instructions that need to be followed and reap huge benefits.

Here are the steps you need to follow to pull this glitch off.

  1. Start a game of Cranked
  2. Keep playing until you earn enough resources to buy either a Cruise Missile or Chopper Gunner
  3. Wait for the timer to tick down until it gets to 3 seconds
  4. Then call in the streak
  5. Don’t eliminate any Zombies with it
  6. When the streak appears, the timer should now have disappeared
  7. You should now how an infinite amount of time to play how you want

You will now have free reign to take your time and take in the different parameters that Crank offers compared to traditional Zombies.

It’s good to see that Treyarch is continuing to support Zombies with a variety of content and the trend shows no signs of stopping. Forthcoming Zombies updates will see a new Fireteam map, new perks, and much more.

Easily finish Diamond camo for the M79 in Black Ops Cold War

A TikToker has discovered a way to easily achieve the Diamond camo on the M79 in Black Ops Cold War through a secret spot on Nuketown.

Published

A TikTok video by North Texas shows players how to easily achieve gold camo on the M79 special launcher in Black Ops Cold War.

Launcher challenges in Black Ops Cold War are brutal and time-consuming. Often, they require perfect circumstances to achieve, and it can take several games to get the right conditions. In the previous Call of Duty titles, launchers would be time-consuming and difficult as well, but Black Ops Cold War is especially difficult.

Due to the low damage values and effectiveness of Flak Jacket, some launchers can take up to 3 shots to kill enemies in hardcore modes, which is problematic for obvious reasons. Players need to achieve longshots, double-kills, and even killstreaks to master each respective launcher.

One of the most difficult launchers in Black Ops Cold War is the M79. Luckily, a player has discovered a spot to get easy longshots and feeds with the weapon to expedite the tedious process.

It appears that TikToker North_Texas has found a spot on the A-Side spawn in Nuketown that makes longshots a breeze with the M79. If you position yourself precisely in the garden area, aim all the way up, and fire, you’ll send shots perfectly aimed at the B flag.

All kills will register as longshots due to the range from this area. You may even score some easy double-kills off spawn from players attempting to capture B. If enemies are using Flak Jacket, you still may get a kill with the next shot.

We recommend lobby-surfing for hardcore games with players who aren’t running Flak Jacket, as this will make the process much faster. After a few kills, players may enable the perk, so you can feel free to leave the game and try again in another lobby.
