Call of Duty: Warzone’s Latest Update Seems to Have Mostly Broken the Game

Call of Duty: Warzone players excited to jump into Season 1 Reloaded are running into new issues that are leaving the game almost unplayable.

The Season 1 refresh update dropped for all players today, bringing new cosmetics, multiplayer maps, changes to the Zombies formula, anti-cheat improvements, and more across the entire Call of Duty experience. They’re enticing additions that many battle royale fans aren’t getting to enjoy. Those who hop into the open-world FPS mode are being met with intense visual and gameplay glitches if they are able to make it into a match at all.

Social media sites like X/Twitter are already filled with clips and reports of lackluster experiences. A notorious clip making the rounds sees streamer Fifakill struggling to move at all after attempting to open the “Create a Class” menu.

The issues don’t stop at Create a Class. Fifakill also shared a clip on X/Twitter that shows off what can only be described as a strange dent in the Urzikstan map where there wasn’t one before.

Terraformed map sections might be funny to some, but others have found themselves unable to access Loadout Drops, too. Streamer MerK and players with them found that the Precision Airstrike Killstreak is no longer notifying nearby players when activated.

It’s a warning that could mean life or death for a squad, but it’s also only an issue you need to worry about if you’re actually able to enter a game. X/Twitter user Kaitlyn Smiles, as well as many others, are finding themselves caught in a loop that restricts access to even something as simple as the main menu.

Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software is used to making changes on the fly but has yet to announce when a fix for today’s Season 1 Reloaded issues will arrive. However, the team has reported that the Loadout, geographical distortion, Killstreak notification, and main menu loop bugs are being looked into.

Call of Duty: Warzone was previously meant to bring Weapons Cases and Covert Exfil’s to the experience before Raven decided to delay the features due to negative fan feedback. No information on when those features will make their way to players has been revealed.
