Insane Cold War glitch turns players into a human Gunship Scorestreak

One CoD: Cold War player not only had their Gunship taken away form them, but then had to endure a bizarre filter glitch.

A couple of player’s games quickly went south after Black Ops Cold War not only took their hard-earned Gunships away from them but also cast an off-putting black and white filter onto them too.

Imagine absolutely smashing the lobby you’re in, accumulating big points, not dying, and earning your Scorestreaks, one of which is the top dog itself – the Gunship. The ultra-rare 10,000 point beast simply pulverizes your opponents and quickly boosts your kill count.

A couple of players had their misery compounded when their hard-earned Gunship was not only taken away from them instantly, but also left them with a massive distraction engulfing the screen.

Reddit users drututt and bryanhun64 were battering the opposition into submission in games of Raid and Nuketown respectively, and both caused so much damage that they both piloted Chopper Gunners.

Once the Scorestreak had finished, they activated the elusive Gunship. Both players’ aerial weapons of mass destruction barely lasted a second when the animation halted.

Instead of launching missiles and floods of bullets to chew up the map, drututt and bryanhun64 were instead made to contend with a new game filter instead.

In both videos the exact same thing happens as the Gunship Scorestreak is activated, the screen to control it is flipped up and then immediately put away. They’re then both left with a trippy monochrome filter that stays with them.

In the comments section for drututt’s video, Smurf_Destroyer made a good point that unless there is another mysterious force at work here, “I bet the game thinks you’re in the Gunship, so your screen is thermal.”

It’s always hard to tell what can cause such a drastic change such as this one.

Whether it’s the combination of loadout and Scorestreaks or both of them intertwined with the maps, it’s hard to test for every single possibility and eventuality.

Unlike how Firebase Z has caused nightmares, Outbreak has inflicted horror, or even Raid’s weird Mario Kart effect, this glitch has definitely happened in at least two different games. If there are more examples that crop up, then it’s safe to assume that the Gunship Scorestreak is broken for the time being.

Glitch giving free Stitch Skin to Black Ops Cold War players

A glitch has been giving Black Ops Cold War players access to a new Stitch skin ahead of the Season 3 update for the first-person shooter.

Stitch Black Ops Cold War

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players have been confused about having access to a new Stitch skin ahead of the Season 3 update for the first-person shooter.

Stitch is one of the many Operators that players can choose to play as in Black Ops Cold War when they are gunning down zombies or battling it out against other players in multiplayer.

Skins for these Operators can be acquired through various means, but it looks as though a bug is currently allowing players to have a new Stitch skin unlocked without having to do anything.

Over on Twitter, The Baron of ZLand showed off this Stitch Brute skin and how they thought they were likely not supposed to have this skin unlocked when they launched Black Ops Cold War. Other players also have reported gaining access to this cosmetic item even if they did not have Stitch unlocked.

Players were able to use this new skin in matches and quickly discovered that the character was barefoot when using it.

This lead to many believing that having access to the skin was a mistake and that this unfinished nature of the item meant that Treyarch did not intend for it to be in the hands of players yet.

The Baron of ZLand later posted a tweet saying that this free Stitch skin had been removed from their inventory, lending more support to the idea that it had been an unintentional addition to the cosmetic inventories of players ahead of the Season 3 update for Black Ops Cold War.

While players are likely going to have to wait till later on in Season 3 to get their hands on this Stitch skin officially, there is still a wide array of exciting changes that will be taking place when the Season 3 update for Black Ops Cold War officially goes live on April 21 and April 22.

From a group of brand new weapons like the PPSH and Swiss K31 to a multitude of new maps for players to battle each other on, there will be plenty for players to enjoy when they finally get to use this Stitch Brute skin at some point in the future.

Frustrating R1 Shadowhunter unlock bug now affecting Cold War Zombies

A frustrating glitch with unlocking the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow appears to have returned with Zombies in Cold War Season 3.

Shadowhunter Crossbow Zombies

Although Black Ops Cold War’s devs fixed the issue with the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow not unlocking for players, the problem appears to have resurfaced now that it can be unlocked through playing Zombies.

Zombies players have long been frustrating with new weapons, such as the ZRG 20mm and E-Tool, only being unlocked through multiplayer. Treyarch addressed this issue in the Season 3 update, and now all DLC weapons have their own challenges for the Zombies mode.

However, a frustrating glitch with unlocking R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow has appeared to have returned following this welcomed update.

R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow

Although players had completed all of the requirements for the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow, they still couldn’t unlock it. After community uproar, the developers patched this annoying bug and players were able to unlock their crossbow.

However, now that the R1 Shadowhunter can be unlocked by playing Zombies, a player has seemingly run into the same problem.

Posting to Reddit, user Putrid_Parasite said, “I really hope this isn’t a bug,” with the R1 Shadowhunter’s challenge being complete but the weapon still being locked.

Players often get caught out by the fact you must finish your match for challenge progress to count, so another user checked that our player didn’t make this critical mistake. Putrid_Parasite said that they let the Zombies kill them, ending the match naturally.

Of course, this glitch could be because Cold War Season 3 hasn’t officially launched yet. Cold War’s Season 3 update went live ahead of the official launch and brought some features with it, including the removal of slide canceling.

As this feature is designed for Season 3, perhaps the weapons will unlock once the Season officially goes live on April 22.

Treyarch haven’t listed this bug on their official Trello board, but with Season 3 only hours away, expect this to only be acknowledged and fixed if it persists into the new season.

A new map is being added to Cold War’s Outbreak mode, so hopefully, you can unlock the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow while playing Duga.

Devs respond to match cancellation issues affecting League Play in Cold War

Treyarch have disabled the match cancellation feature in Black Ops Cold War after it caused problems in League Play.

League Play in BOCW

Treyarch have listened to player feedback and decided to address some of the glaring issues affecting League Play in Black Ops Cold War, including match cancellation issues.

The Zombies invasion of Verdansk is about to come to its epic conclusion, and the highly-anticipated Season 3 of both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is set to begin. So, the devs are working full-time to make this transition smooth.

Listening to player feedback regarding technical problems within League Play has been a main priority for Treyarch, and now they’ve addressed the issue with the match cancellations feature that has been plaguing several players.

BOCW and Warzone Season 3

Treyarch’s Community Manager Josh “FoxhoundFPS” Torres went on Reddit to respond to the alleged glitch in Cold War that prevented ping from tracking. In this same thread, the issue with match cancellations came up as well.

This feature would take effect as soon as one of the players in a match abandoned the game, canceling the match altogether. It was disabled a short while after it was first added, much to the confusion of players.

After addressing the ping glitch, Josh wrote: “Thanks for sharing. Match Cancellations have gone live early, and we’ll be disabling them soon. We’ll have more to share at a later date.”

It’s understandable why the devs thought it would be best to add a cancellation feature. If you’re the only one left on your team in a League Play match, then victory can be near impossible to achieve.

This new feature would ensure that players that don’t have the advantage of numbers on their side wouldn’t get punished. Hopefully, we’ll see get another update regarding this situation from the devs soon.

As with the recent dev action concerning Cold War PS5 controller issues and broken Zombies attachments, we expect all other technical problems to be tended to swiftly.
