Players complain about glitch in Call of Duty Warzone

The battle royale game has been subjected to backlash from the community for multiple bugs and glitches. Each time, Activision has worked on them to improve the title further. However, the Stim glitch is one problem that the developers should perhaps find a permanent solution for.

So far, it has made an entry a total of 7 times. That may just be the highest total for any glitch return in Warzone history.

Now explaining the glitch is simple. Time and again, there are certain glitches that offer a huge advantage to players. Users who can exploit the stim glitch can use infinite stims to heal themselves. This gives them a higher chance of winning the battle royale by staying inside the smoke.

Players started complaining about the glitch primarily over Reddit and Twitter. Certain users have taken advantage of the glitch to obtain unfair match wins that have enraged the community. Since the players are essentially hiding behind a smoke, it becomes harder to track or counterattack.

Activision has made guidelines stricter for those who do not adhere to the rules. But that does not come off as a viable solution. Hopefully, the developers fix the glitch in time to help users be in a fair gaming environment.

In other news, the Reloaded update did bring in some good changes. Apart from a couple of buffs and nerfs of some weapons, Black Ops Cold War also features some new maps.

First is a strike version of the Miami map and the second ‘Mansion’, a gunfight map. A bigger map called Golova was also introduced, that quickly grew in popularity.

Sanatorium has also finally debuted for the game’s zombie mode. The developers had teased it for a while and it is refreshing to see it finally available for play. Weekly patch updates are also bringing new operators, weapons, and fixing various bugs.
