Some glitches just exist to make the game unplayable. The gun glitch we saw previously in Warzone was destroying the experience by taking over the screen amidst a fight. However, there are some other glitches that make life difficult for players only when exploited by others. The invisibility glitch with a certain skin and the stim glitch are of this kind.

Warzone regulars have faced players exploiting the infinite stim glitch for the sixth time in over two months. This is a sorry state of affairs for the game, and Treyarch devs have announced a fix for it, yet again.

Treyarch devs have further announced that they will release future patch notes from Raven Software’s website. A new set of patches usually means Warzone will soon have another new glitch in the game, but we sincerely hope that it won’t be the case this time. Activision can hardly afford any more major slips if it wants to continue with the free-to-play BR in the long run.
