Call of Duty Warzone: Fans Are Outraged After Discovering a New Sniper Bug

Published 04/10/2021, 10:47 AM EDT


Call of Duty Warzone is now one of the most famous Battle Royale games. While Raven Software has done a great job with designing and adding fresh content to the game, the title is still vulnerable to various bugs and glitches.

Recently, a new bug emerged where players could use snipers without glint. Glint is essentially a white spotlight that appears when you scope in with a sniper in order to balance snipers. Since snipers are primarily long-range and stealthy weapons, glint makes it so that opposing players are able to spot the sniper.

The absence of glint makes it very hard to locate snipers and fight back. YouTuber JGod uploaded a video showcasing how this bug could be applied to any sniper rifle.

Usually, glint appears when you apply a 4x or higher scope to a gun or when you use a sniper. However, JGod discovered that applying a variable zoom got rid of the mechanic completely. In a recent video, he exposes the bug using a variety of Call of Duty Modern Warfare rifles. This glitch works with a range of guns, from the reliable Kar98 to the hard-hitting HDR.

Call of Duty fans are unhappy with no glint snipers

The no glint bug can be found in both Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Previously fans have also had to deal with a plethora of hackers using wallhacks, stim glitches, and aim-bot to name a few. As a result, fans of the first-person shooter franchise are understandably frustrated.

Seriously… How is no glint snipers still even remotely in this game without being fixed? from CODWarzone

Although Activision has been consistently rolling out ban waves, Call of Duty Warzone is still in desperate need of an anti-cheat. Three days ago, Activision took the ax to 15,000 more cheating accounts. While a cosmetic glitch like no glint on snipers should not take too many patches to fix, it exposes more loose ends in the game.
