Unfortunately, in the modern era of gaming, no game releases in a perfect state. Since the release of Black Ops Cold War players have reported bugs they’ve come across while playing the game.

Treyarch is aware of these bugs, along with many others. Here are all the current known issues in Black Ops: Cold War.

Warzone cheaters shamelessly flex highly requested Cold War Zombies camos

Warzone’s hacking troubles continue as cheaters have been able to unlock locked Cold War Zombies camos to use in Warzone Season 4.

Verdansk is currently being overrun by hackers sporting unreleased Black Ops Cold War Zombies Dark Aether camos in Warzone Season 4.

It was said by the devs that eventually Cold War’s Zombies camos would come to Call of Duty: Warzone at some point. It’s been quite a long time since the game’s release and none of its skins have turned up in Verdansk yet.

Thanks to the growing power of hackers in Warzone though, they have now arrived in unceremonious fashion. One Twitch user, and even JGOD, have provided evidence of the new Zombies camos running riot in Warzone.

The Twitch streamer goes by the name of Repullze, and they were mid-game with several buddies when they spectated the unusual happenings.

An enemy hacker was running around the map blindly firing with their gun to let the cheat do its usual thing.

But the oddity that was picked up on quite quickly was the skin that the weapon was sporting a DM Ultra Zombie camo that you simply cannot find in Warzone Season 4.

The clip, and stream, caught the attention of popular Call of Duty personality JGOD. He Tweeted out a picture of Repullze’s stream showing further evidence of the hacks.

The camo was different from the Twitch clip as it was now encrusted with diamonds, as was now clearly coated in the “Plague Diamond” Zombies camo.

Warzone continues to be a game played by thousands of players every single day, but there’s no doubt that the morale of the community is at an all-time low.

Lately, the game has been subjected to a God Mode hack, weird glitches allowing players to see through walls, and hackers even using their own custom skins in-game.

Between hacks, cheating, and glitches, Warzone Season 4 is proven to be a decidedly mixed experience.

Warzone players slam “rip off” Ultra Operator skin

Warzone players have called out the new Magma Ultra Operator skin for being a “rip off” and advise other players not to buy it.

Warzone players slam magma operator skin

Warzone players have been unimpressed with the new ‘Magma’ Ultra-rarity Operator skin for Knight, with it being called a “rip off” as its fiery effect in-game doesn’t match its Cold War appearance or what’s advertised in the store.

Warzone and Cold War Season 4 added the first-ever Ultra Operator skin with Iridescent for Jackal. This brightly-colored skin changes color throughout matches, making it a unique sight on the battlefield.

Activision has now released another Ultra Operator skin with ‘Magma’ for Knight, in which the outfit glows like fiery lava. But Warzone players have been more than unimpressed with its minimal fiery effects in the battle royale mode.

Warzone and Cold War Magma Fury bundle

As Cold War and Warzone are on different engines, the Operators often look slightly different between the two games. This has been severely highlighted with the Magma Fury Bundle, where the skin’s effect is clear in Cold War, but barely recognizable in Warzone.

Many players assumed that the Magma skin would be reactive, where it changes color and design with each kill. This doesn’t appear to be the case, as the molten lava effect is there as soon as you spawn in.

Warzone players have been criticizing the skin as the lava effect is almost non-existent in the bright, hazy colors of Verdansk ’84. Reddit user kaif_chan123 made players aware of the problem by showing off the skin in Warzone.

In the comparison pictures, we can see the skin’s Magma effect is bright and obvious when in the Store but muddied and hard to see in-game. “They did rip me off,” they stated, explaining that they wouldn’t recommend that anyone buys it.

The image from kaif_chan123 is low-resolution, but a video from KRNG Hero (topic begins at 13:48) better shows how it looks in Warzone. After praising how cool the skin is in Cold War, Hero said that you can only see the fire effect in Warzone if you “look very carefully.”

This is one of Activision’s most expensive bundles in the store, so while plenty of Redditors criticized the OP for buying a skin, it’s still something players should be aware of before purchasing the bundle.

Also, Warzone players have called for a Store boycott over the lawsuit against Activision-Blizzard for its “frat boy” culture and sexual harassment incidents.

Black Ops Cold War players call for major changes to Chopper Gunner Scorestreak

Cold War fans want Treyarch to address the Chopper Gunner Scorestreak as they believe it’s underpowered in its current state.

Published

Once one of the most feared Scorestreaks in Call of Duty, players think the Chopper Gunner needs a big buff to be worth the points required to use in Black Ops Cold War.

People tend to reminisce about the Modern Warfare 2 days of CoD. Nearly every gamer had the Chopper Gunner killstreak equipped as it was unbelievably overpowered, would be a guarantee to rack up some serious kills, and was fun to use.

In Black Ops Cold War, the feeling is not quite the same. As one of the most expensive Scorestreaks in Season 4, players don’t believe it justifies the points necessary to acquire. As a result, they want it to receive a significant buff going forward.

One of the biggest issues with the Chopper Gunner is that it requires a whopping 8,000 points to pilot one.

As Reddit user factsvsfiction explains: “This streak COSTS 8,000 points. To put that into perspective, that is 1.6 Strafe Runs, 2 War Machines, 3 Hand Cannons, or 3.5 Death Machines worth of points.”

They then dissect the effectiveness and durability of the Chopper Gunner, in comparison to other Scorestreaks, by saying: “The streak can easily be taken down by down by someone’s Sam Turret that only takes 3 minutes to charge (which can be sooner if they are using a perk to speed it up) or an Air Patrol valued at 2500 points. That’s laughable.”

A common complaint that was echoed by many commenters on the post is that the VTOL Scorestreak is significantly better, and costs fewer points.

You can control the VTOL, but you can’t with the Chopper Gunner, you can manually trigger flares for the VTOL, and it has two modes of fire.

One top commenter said: “I don’t know why you would choose a Chopper Gunner over the Gunship lmao. The CG can get melted by a Calvary Lancer M60 (I have an “Anti-Air” class specifically for this) in 3 seconds.”

After weighing up all the evidence, it’s clear that there is a huge discrepancy between the Chopper Gunner and cheaper Scorestreaks of a similar nature. It definitely warrants some kind of upgrade, or its points requirement lowered.
