Latest Warzone Update Brings Back Invisibility Glitch

Posted on July 15, 2021

We recently posted an article discussing the massive injection of fresh content coming into Warzone and Cold War. The Season 4 Reloaded update has landed, and with it comes a host of new weapons, maps, modes, and various tweaks to both main Call of Duty titles.

Oh, and there’s also the return of an infamous and extremely irritating glitch – invisibility.

If you’re an avid fan of Call of Duty: Warzone, you may recall that some time ago, this glitch surfaced in Verdansk. It permitted players to turn completely invisible, attacking and killing the other players without suffering a single blow. Of course, we won’t let you know how this glitch can be exploited – that’s just immoral.

On June 15th, the Season 4 Reloaded update landed, and within hours, some players had figured out the exploit. In a clip captured by popular Call of Duty streamer, JGOD, we get a perfect look at how this glitch manifests:

Isn’t The First, Won’t Be The Last

Unfortunately, Warzone has been somewhat plagued with glitches and exploits since it first launched. If there’s one thing a competitive, battle-royale-playing gamer can sniff out, it’s a glitch, bug, or exploit. In Warzone, that fact is certainly a glaringly obvious one, and we’ve seen everything from unlimited gas survival to invincible vehicles, and impossible wallbangs to yes, invisibility.

Since the game first launched in 2020, we’ve seen a whole host of malicious activity. There have been players hiding inside the map, lobbies ended by forcing an intense bug, and players securing a win before the match has even started. However, while a lot of the dubious and suspicious activity within Warzone is the result of hackers, many of these bugs and glitches come from unstable development.

And what’s the chief outcome of a lot of these unstable glitches? Invisibility.

At the tail end of 2020, we saw an invisibility glitch created by letting a loadout box fall on your head.

Then, there was a skin – a ‘ghillie suit’ – that caused a bizarre form of invisibility at longer ranges.

Finally, and worst of all, a new helicopter was introduced, and if manipulated correctly, it could turn four people invisible all at once.

It’s heartwarming to see that we’ve come full circle, and Activision (and Raven Software) has graced players with yet another way to turn invisible.

But How Does The Rest Of The Update Look?

Honestly, the Season 4 Reloaded update is quite a strong one. It has pushed fresh content into Warzone, boosted up the Zombies mode, and added a little to Cold War. We’ve got a few new game modes to enjoy, including Warzone’s first-ever objective-driven mode, Payload.

There’s a new SMG, which is meta-worthy, and a Sentry Gun killstreak has been added to Warzone. It’s likely to shake up gameplay and change how loadouts are built, for the first time in a while. Could Cold-blooded make a return as the GOAT perk?

Finally, yes, there have been a lot of fixes and stability improvements in the update. Although, as it always seems to be with these updates, it’s one step forward and two steps back…
