We’re lower than every week into the lifetime of Warzone 2.0, an upgraded model of the hit free-to-play battle royale spinoff for Name of Responsibility, and gamers already assume they’re dying by the hands of invisible opponents. Whereas Activision hasn’t formally acknowledged the potential bug, gamers are already swapping tales of the dreaded glitch’s return.
Warzone is no stranger to invisibility exploits, with the sport’s builders enjoying whack-a-mole with the difficulty over the previous couple years. As such, Warzone 2.0 gamers are already well-primed to consider their failed campaigns and early deaths are because of nefarious forces exterior of their management. The video proof thus far, nonetheless, definitely appears to counsel one thing bizarre is occurring.

The kill cam, nonetheless, went on to indicate somebody reverse him simply as he was developing the ladder who ought to have been in plain sight however wasn’t. Different gamers went on to share their very own screenshots and clips:
A number of gamers have been doing the identical on Reddit. Some even claimed to be invisible themselves, with opponents operating previous them, and no clear concept of how the glitch had occurred within the first place. That will surely appear to level to there being an invisibility bug, even when the present record of recognized points supplied by Activision doesn’t but acknowledge one. Nonetheless, different gamers are satisfied the invisibility is the results of exterior hacks and cheats, fairly than an in-game exploit.
There’s a recognized god mode glitch particular to Warzone 2.0’s DMZ mode, but it surely doesn’t permit gamers to make use of weapons whereas they’re invisible.
