The latest iteration of the Call of Duty battle royale game is here, and while Warzone 2 is tearing players apart with its changes to the formula many have grown accustomed to, there are still plenty of bugs and glitches making the rounds of the FPS game. Chief among these issues is the return of a bug from the original Warzone, as a Warzone 2 invisibility bug gives some players of the multiplayer game a completely unfair and unknown advantage.
As shown by XSET streamer Evan ‘SuperEvan’ Moore, there’s some pretty cut and dry footage of the bug in action. At this time, it’s unclear how widespread the bug is, and while it’s not a deliberate design choice like the worst Call of Duty skin, it will certainly cause problems in Warzone 2 matches if it continues to appear.
Here’s how Warzone 2’s invisibility bug works: for some unknown reason one player cannot be seen by the other at all, despite being located on the other player’s screen. Of course, this gives the invisible player a completely unfair advantage, and as seen in the clip of Moore under the kill cam it clearly shows that the invisible player is in his line of sight, just invisible for some reason. Not even the best Warzone 2 weapons can save you from this.

If you want even more proof, the thread below Moore’s tweet has many more examples of the Warzone 2 invisibility bug in action across the entire Warzone 2 map of Al Mazrah. As mentioned, it’s currently unclear if this is a completely random bug or if there’s a specific way to enable it, and we don’t currently have a way to fix it either. So if you encounter an invisible enemy in Warzone 2 matches, tough luck I guess.
I imagine if Infinity Ward doesn’t already know about Warzone 2’s invisibility issue, they will soon. However, the problem isn’t found on the extensive Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 board, which suggests that Infinity Ward isn’t looking for a fix yet, or that they have Warzone 2’s invisibility bug on their to-do list.
However, the story doesn’t start or end here, as Steam reviews for Warzone 2 have started to build due to a plethora of technical issues in the free-to-play Call of Duty game. While the frustration is justified, it’s important to remember that almost all free-to-play games will experience growing pains at launch as thousands – if not millions – of players immerse themselves in the experience, so it’s always best to give these things time.
