The Season 4 update brought the ability for Warzone players to use an extremely powerful Armored Truck. Still, a glitch the vehicle was causing has forced Raven Software to remove the Armored Trucks from the Call of Duty battle royale for the time being.

Various pieces of new content made their way into the world of Warzone with the launch of Season 4, including the addition of the MG 82 LMG, C58 Assault Rifle, and Nail Gun.

One of the biggest additions the new season brought to Warzone was the Armored Trucks that players could obtain by visiting one of the new crashed satellite locations that randomly spawn on Verdansk ’84.

However, the powerful Armored Trucks were deemed to be causing a game-breaking glitch. They resulted in Raven Software removing this vehicle from the game until a more permanent fix had been discovered.

The glitch that the Armored Warzone Trucks had been causing was an invisibility bug that was causing some players to become invisible, which had already been causing plenty of frustration for members of the community on the first day of Warzone Season 4.

Raven Software took to Twitter to announce that it had removed the Armored Trucks from Warzone for the time being, as they work to fix the invisibility glitch that arose from players using the new vehicle.

The Warzone development studio has since posted the issue on its official Trello board, where the community can keep track of the progress they are making towards fixing the particular bug or glitch listed.

While removing a piece of content due to it causing a game-breaking glitch is never an exciting moment, the community reception towards the powerful Armored Trucks with a mounted machine gun and a mobile buy station was not extremely positive.

Some players may breathe a sigh of relief that this new Season 4 vehicle is out of the game for the time being.

Warzone’s The Haunting event is here, with its challenges offering players some Halloween-themed treats. Ghostface is calling, so you need to answer three phone calls across Verdansk, and here are the Warzone phone locations.

In order to unlock the LAPA SMG and all of the other Halloween-themed cosmetics, Warzone players must complete nine The Haunting challenges. These include filling and reducing your Fear Meter, becoming a Ghost, and answering calls from Ghostface.

To complete this Haunting challenge, you’ll need to answer three ringing phones across Verdansk when playing in the Ghosts of Verdansk playlist.

Here are all of the phones we’ve found so far.

Phones can be found all over Verdansk, particularly in buildings that you would expect to have phones – such as the Hospital and Airport. You’ll be able to hear the phones ring from a while away, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble when you’re in the right location.

Here’s every phone location we’ve found so far in Warzone’s The Haunting event:

  • Hospital: At the reception desk
  • TV Station: In the office cubicles
  • Downtown: In the Verdansk Parliamant Building
  • Airport: In a portacabin outside and by the departure gate

Warzone’s Hospital telephone can be found in the main reception area. If you head through the main doors at the Promenade side, keep going and you’ll find it beside a desk on the right-hand side.

Warzone TV Station phone location

Another phone can be found inside the TV Station. Head to the main newsroom area with all of the desks, and one of the phones will start ringing.

Warzone Downtown Phone location

To answer the phone in Downtown, you need to head to the Verdansk Parliament Building – this is the one across the road from Nakatomi Plaza. Look for the desk on the north side and the phone will be on a table.

Warzone Airport phone locations

The first Airport phone can be found by the departure gate. This is the area that protrudes from the main building, right beside the plane on the runway.

The second phone can be found in a portacabin on the east side of Airport, where the buildings form an L shape. Look in the cabin in the corner of the L, and you’ll see the phone on a table.

How to answer the phone for Warzone The Haunting challenges

Answering the phone is simple, you just need to wait for it to ring and then press the interact button to answer it. Ghostface will be on the other end taunting you, and then you can carry on with your game.

You can also just wait by the phone for it to ring again, so you should only have to visit one location. But be careful, staying still will cause your Fear Meter to rise and lead to hallucinations. Plus, Ghosts will be even more deadly in the confines of indoor areas.

Warzone Ghosts of Verdansk Fear Meter: What it does, how to reduce it & challenges

Warzone’s new Ghosts of Verdansk mode has a new Fear Meter mechanic, find out what it is, what fills it up, and challenge and rewards info.

As part of the new Ghosts of Verdansk LTM, players have to combat the new Fear Meter mechanic. Our easy guide will run you through it, instructing you on what it is, what contributes to the meter, challenges linked to it, and possible rewards.

Warzone’s Fear Meter is an innovative gameplay element for the franchise that drastically changes the way players need to approach combat. As your Fear Meter rises, hallucinations become a distinct possibility, and they can be damaging in a 1v1.

To ensure that you are adequately prepared and informed about the Fear Meter, our detailed Warzone guide will walk you through The Haunting event’s scary, new addition.

What does Warzone’s Fear Meter do?

Quite simply, the more you allow the Fear Meter gauge to fill up, the chances of encountering one of the game mode’s hallucinations drastically increase.

You should be able to see the meter in the bottom left-hand corner next to where information about your Armor Plates would be. It’s a skull surrounded by a bar that separates into three different colors.

Several actions will make the counter slowly tick up and reaching different marks will trigger a hallucination in Ghosts of Verdansk.

What makes Warzone’s Fear Meter fill up?

Your actions will have a positive or negative effect on the Fear Meter, which will determine how quickly or slowly it will increase and decrease.

Here are all the different ways to increase the Fear Meter in Warzone:

  • Being shot at, being hit by enemy Equipment, or having their Killstreaks in the area
  • Camping (AKA cowardice)
  • Seeing dead bodies or Ghosts
  • Having squadmates downed or eliminated

How to reduce Warzone Fear Meter

This is how you can decrease the Fear Meter:

  • Eliminating a player or Ghost
  • Reviving a squadmate
  • Completing a Contract
  • Remaining within Sacred Ground… so long as it stays intact

How to complete Warzone Fear Meter hallucination challenges

The Haunting event has some specific challenges tied directly to the Fear Meter, and they contribute to the nine overall challenges in the event.

Here is how to complete the two Fear Meter challenges.

Use 3 Sacred Ground locations to reduce your Fear Meter in The Ghosts of Verdansk playlist

Scattered around Verdansk are blue diamonds with shield symbols in the middle of them. Simply find these, step inside three different ones for a few seconds and you should complete this challenge.

Experience 3 Hallucinations while you have a full Fear Meter in The Ghosts of Verdansk playlist

This one is a lot easier and will probably come naturally if you play a few games of Ghosts of Verdansk. Simply perform all the actions that cause your Fear Meter to increase and sit back as jumpscares overcome your screen three times.

Warzone Fear Meter hallucination challenge rewards

If you’re going to subject yourself to some difficult positions that require you to go out of your way and risk your position in a match, then you should be duly rewarded.

For completing the Sacred Ground challenge, you’ll earn an “Underworld calling card” and if you do the 3 Hallucinations, then this will get you a “Tentacle weapon charm.”

These are two of nine challenges, and if you can do all 9 for Cold War or Warzone, then you’ll get the LAPA SMG.


We have now covered all the major aspects of Warzone’s new Fear Meter mechanic, and it’s up to you to try and avoid nasty jumpscares – unless you want them of course.

Warzone players roast “horrendous” The Haunting event jumpscares

Warzone players believe that the new Haunting of Verdansk Halloween mode is being ruined by constant jumpscares.

Published

To celebrate the Halloween season, Warzone players have been treated to the ‘Haunting of Verdansk” game mode, but players claim that “annoying” jumpscares are souring the experience.

Warzone’s The Haunting event has introduced a brand new mode for players to get stuck into called “Ghosts of Verdansk.” Upon death, players become ghosts and perform a variety of supernatural actions, but the main talking point has been the jumpscares that can happen to players.

Jumpscare culture has exploded in popularity in the last 10 years, largely due to the emergence of indie horror games such as Five Nights at Freddy’s and Amnesia.

Now, Warzone’s Ghosts of Verdansk has followed suit, although, players are not overly keen on the hallucinations that can appear every so often.

One of the key aspects of The Haunting’s new themed mode is the Fear Meter which slowly increases during a match, demanding players keep on top of it.

Failure to do so will result in hallucinations that can suddenly pop up on your screen and prevent the player from being able to see.

The reception to them hasn’t been completely positive with two Reddit posts voicing their displeasure for the hallucinations. Approaching 2K upvotes, the “Thank you Activision for making this very fun gamemode. These animations are not annoying at all” post features a variety of negative comments.

One player said: “Bro those are RuneScape graphics” and another player added: “Thanks for sharing this. I was thinking about trying the update but now I don’t have too.”

Whereas another Reddit post titled “I want to have a chat with whoever thought this was a good idea” expanded upon these sentiments.

The OP bigappleman6946 said: “I played a total of 2 rounds with my regular squad where we lost gunfights because of this. We went straight back to rebirth/br.” Another player commented on the jumpscare saying: “Yeah that’s the worst one. The others I can deal with but that one is horrendous.”

One of the main criticisms of the mode was directed towards the Fear Meter with the OP also adding that: “The fear meter is useless. I don’t mind the occasional jumpscare, but when they are every 15 seconds and block the entire screen during a gunfight? What a joke.”

The Haunting event isn’t sticking around for too long as it finishes on November 2, so we don’t expect too many changes to the system already in place.
