Warzone 2 rolled out less than a week ago, and players are already experiencing deja vu from an outbreak of invisible players. This isn’t the first time the Warzone series has been affected by glitchy, invisible fighters, but we don’t yet have an answer as to why it’s happening again. The invisibility issue caught the eye this weekend, when streamer SuperEv share a video of being taken out by another player who didn’t appear to be there. The Warzone 2.0 Trello board listing the game’s known issues does not mention any known invisibility bugs yet, so stay frosty.
Other players have shared their stories of invisible attackers, including some streamers who say it’s been going on since launch day. Players also took to the CODWarzone subreddit to tell their stories of unseen woes. “It also happened to me on the second day of the release. The guy was invisible and kept stalking me and my team until he deleted us. I think it’s a cheat”, said one Warzone 2.0 player. “Second game, came 2nd to someone invisible. Joke of a game,” added another.There are even invisible players starting to confess their antics.
Step back in time and you’ll remember that the first Warzone also struggled with invisible players. Like AliceO. Reported almost two years ago, Warzone 1.0 received an update with attack helicopters that started making players invisible. It was pretty easy to trigger this for a while, and some players retaliated by firing wildly and just throwing grenades right, left, and center. That’s how I always play Call Of Duty anyway, so I should be safe for now. Another invisibility issue surfaced last year thanks to Warzone’s armored trucks.
