Sunday Times was caught being lazy or funny recently. The newspaper used a picture of Modern Warfare’s John “Soap” MacTavish, instead of a photo of real life soldier. For some reason they felt the need to protect the game characters identity.

As Gizmodo points out, the article was meant to explain the failed hostage rescue attempt by British and Nigerian Special Forces in Nigeria last week.

Major Warzone Ghost glitch breaks popular Perk

Players are reporting that a glitch with the Ghost Perk in Warzone Season 6 is causing major problems in the game.

Ghost is one of Warzone’s most popular Perks, thanks to its ability to hide the player from enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors. But a “game-breaking” Season 6 glitch is causing the Perks effect to stop working, leaving unsuspecting players exposed.

With Call of Duty: Vanguard so close to its worldwide releases, many fans are jumping into Warzone Season 6 for Verdansk’s final chapter.

Season 6 has brought plenty of Halloween-themed content to the battle royale with The Haunting event, from the new Ghost of War skin to an entire batch of new challenges.

However, with all the spooky additions, the Ghost Perk has also been broken by a “major” glitch.

Warzone Season 6 Mason

CoD YouTuber Immortal explained the new Ghost glitch in a recent upload to his channel.

Ghost is supposed to stop players from showing up on enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors, allowing them to stay hidden.

The bug appears to be making the effectiveness of the Perk with UAVs extremely inconsistent, with users being obscured one moment and revealed the next.

Equipment like UAVs ping every few seconds, revealing nearby enemies with each one. Immortal notes that as it stands, some pings will randomly reveal an enemy’s position, then the next will see them vanish again.

The glitch, which he describes as “pretty game-breaking,” is leaving squads players unsure of whether or not a rival team is aware of their presence or not.

Immortal also mentions that it is an issue for players using a UAV, as it’s impossible to track enemy movements if they are constantly appearing and disappearing from the map.

Ghost has been a divisive perk in Warzone for some time, but the way it is working at the moment is causing issues for every player.

Raven Software has confirmed they are aware of the issue and have a fix on the way, although they did not give a timeframe for how long it will take to implement.

It shouldn’t be too long before the developers release their fix for the Ghost Perk glitch and fans can trust they are being hidden 100% of the time.

As always, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for all the latest Warzone updates.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

New CoD: Vanguard weapon and Multiplayer map teased by PlayStation

A new Call of Duty: Vanguard weapon and Multiplayer map has been teased by PlayStation through a brand new Operator trailer.

Call of Duty Vanguard Operator leaping through window

PlayStation’s brand new trailer shows off a never-before-seen Vanguard weapon and Multiplayer map, getting the fans excited for the game’s official release.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is just around the corner, releasing officially on November 5. With that being said, we’ve already seen the STG44 and M1 Garand in Warzone, but what other weapons will the game have.

After revealing two new Operators from the game, the brand new trailer for Padmavati Balan presents a brand new weapon and map.

The sneak peek happens right at the end of the trailer, where Padmavati is taking people out with a brand new Shotgun. The name of the weapon is currently unknown, but it seems to be very similar to the classic Trench Gun from World at War.

This would make sense considering the close relationship Vanguard is shaping up to have with the classic Call of Duty, as there have even been rumors suggesting some of World at War’s Multiplayer maps will indeed to returning.

The Shotgun looks like it could pack-a-punch as well (no pun intended for the game’s Zombies mode), as it takes enemies out with ease in the trailer.

New Vanguard map

Further, the small sneak peek also showed off a brand new Multiplayer map that players also haven’t seen before.

This map looks like it could be based in Egypt, or somewhere with desert terrain and hot weather.

The Operator is shown taking enemies out while moving through a building, then busting through a window and completing an execution on an enemy while out in the open.

Once again, we don’t have any other information on this new map or weapon apart from speculation, but as more is released we will keep you updated, so stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!
