Technology is fighting back in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3 as footage has appeared on social media of the battle royale’s Big Bertha trucks randomly killing a player for no reason.
In addition to the endless threat of 149 other players, people peppering the map with UAVs because of opening Nakatomi’s Vault, and the endless circling of bullies in Berthas, Warzone players have enough danger to worry about.
But now, a new threat has emerged as Warzone’s Big Bertha trucks seem to be sentient and are now capable of killing their captors.
The bizarre clip of the incident was posted by Reddit user deyrajib, and the confusing footage will surely keep anyone on their toes when they see a free Big Bertha to approach.
deyrajib wasn’t even inside the truck and operating it when they spontaneously died. With 13 people left in the game and vehicles patrolling the circle, they sought sanctuary in the back of a Big Bertha.
Within a few seconds of being in the truck’s spacious back, the player somehow died on the spot, with the killfeed putting it down to an alleged suicide.
There’s no killcam to show anything untoward, no hint that they were shot at, and ultimately no reason as to why they died.
Warzone’s devs have already teased that the trucks will be removed from the popular battle royale game in the near future. They are also investigating a similar vehicle, friendly fire glitch that is also causing bedlam in Verdansk.
But in the meantime, perhaps think twice before you set foot anywhere near a Big Bertha truck as it might come back to haunt you.

How to fix Warzone crashing & freezing issues on Xbox
Warzone has suffered a number of issues since the Pacific update on Xbox, so here’s how to stop it from crashing and freezing.
Xbox players have been suffering from game-breaking crashing and freezing errors since Warzone’s Pacific update, but one simple solution can fix many of the issues.
Warzone Pacific Season 1 brought many changes the community was looking for, adding a brand-new map, a working anti-cheat, and removing Stopping Power once and for all. However, it’s also brought some of the worst glitches Warzone has ever seen, particularly on Xbox.
Luckily, there’s a simple solution that should lessen the amount of freezing and crashing issues you’re experiencing.
How to stop Warzone crashing & freezing on Xbox
To stop Warzone from crashing and freezing, don’t hit the Xbox home button while the Warzone application is open.
We recommend creating an Xbox Party before launching Warzone and then using Warzone’s Social tab to invite your friends to games.
This solution comes directly from Raven Software’s Trello board, where they acknowledged that “Players are reporting an issue where pressing the Xbox home button twice while in-game may cause instability.”
Raven said that the issue is caused by players hitting the Xbox home button twice, but many players have reported that issues crop up by pressing it once. So we recommend steering clear of the Xbox button and not pressing it at all.
Whether this will fix the issue where players can’t launch the game at all remains to be seen, but it should help out players who suffer from freezing and crashing while playing.
Raven Software has confirmed they’re investigating a number of Xbox Warzone glitches such as pressing the Xbox button, performance issues, and Xbox players’ Rebirth Island wins not tracking.
The next major Warzone update will be Season 2 in February, so hopefully, this update brings many much-needed fixes.

Warzone players beg Raven to add custom controller binding
Warzone players are calling on Raven Software to add options that allow them to fully customize their controller binds.
Frustrated with having to use Warzone’s preset controller options, players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options.
With forced crossplay and repeated slide canceling ruining their controllers, Warzone console players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options that allow them to configure their controls exactly how they’d like.
Players with unofficial controllers or the Xbox Elite controllers can fully customize every button. This lets them tailor their Warzone controls to their preference, but those who have first-party controllers are stuck with what Raven Software offers them.
Asking Raven Software, “where the hell is custom controller binding?” Reddit user TimewornTinman explained how they want to completely swap around their controls to keep their thumb on the right stick as much as possible. But, Warzone’s pre-set controls don’t allow them to get it exactly how they would like.
While many players suggested they purchase a third-party controller or buy a back button attachment, the issues would be fixed by giving players full access to their button layouts. One player called it a “basic feature” that’s been “ignored.”
PlayStation does give the option to change button binds through the Accessibility menus, allowing each button to be swapped for another. However, this applies the new binds across every aspect of your PlayStation experience, which can make it extremely difficult to navigate menus and switch to other games.
Console Warzone players have also been desperate for an FOV slider, which may arrive with the PS5 and Xbox Series update that’s confirmed to be in development. Perhaps Raven will give players more controller options when this update eventually arrives.

Warzone is so broken on Xbox consoles that players can’t even open the game
Warzone’s Pacific update has caused a ton of bugs and glitches for Xbox users and now, they can’t even launch of the game.
Warzone Pacific Season 1 breathed new life into Call of Duty’s battle royale, but a constant slew of bugs and glitches have ruined the experience for many. It’s now got so bad that Xbox players can’t even launch the game.
Fed up with Verdansk and a stale meta, Warzone players were desperate for the game to finally move to Caldera and introduce all of Vanguard’s weapons. However, it’s been far from smooth sailing, as the update broke Modern Warfare and introduced some of the most game-breaking glitches Warzone has ever seen.
Warzone’s developers have confirmed they’re working hard to get the game back on track, but for Xbox players, change can’t come soon enough. A recent update has completely locked some Xbox players out, preventing them from even launching the game.
Unfortunately, Xbox players appear to have got the short end of the stick with Warzone’s Pacific update. There’s a bug forcing Xbox players to have a Gold Subscription to play, they’ve lost access to the 120 FPS mode, and now, they can’t even launch the game.
Xbox players are reporting that they’ve been trapped in an endless loop of restarts when trying to launch Warzone. Reddit user Darknesgamer36 shows that after getting through the ‘Connecting to Xbox Live’ screen, Warzone reboots itself and they need to go through it again and again.
Darknesgamer36 isn’t alone, with several players saying they’ve been getting the exact same issue. Ramuh-DH said it happens to “nearly everyone on xbox consoles.”
Other Xbox players have reported different, but equally frustrating, issues. They’ve said the game constantly crashes, their guns go invisible, and they can’t join their friends.
One user said that it took “literally 56 minutes to get in one game,” and if they went back to the main menu at any point, the problem returned. Another user said that whenever they tried to queue into a match, “it would kick whoever wasn’t host and restarted the game every time.”
There appears to be a temporary solution, though: don’t touch the Xbox button on the controller while Warzone is open. Warzone devs have actually acknowledged this on their Trello board, saying they’re investigating an issue where “pressing the Xbox home button twice while in-game may cause instability.”
But, this likely won’t help those players who can’t even launch Warzone in the first place. Raven have several cards for Xbox issues on their Trello board, so hopefully, Xbox players will have the same experience as everyone else soon.
