One of the first Call Of Duty: Warzone’s most notorious bugs returns for the sequel as it reaches 25million players.
Even before it launched, Call Of Duty players had plenty of critiques for Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0, particularly for its new DMZ extraction mode.
Some prominent Twitch streamers weren’t impressed with it even after playing it for themselves, and regular players were left confused when it was reported that a new weapon for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could only be unlocked via DMZ.
Yet despite these complaints, Warzone 2.0 is apparently proving to be incredibly popular, with Activision announcing that, in its first five days, it’s attracted over 25million players.
We don’t have an exact one-to-one comparison with the first Call Of Duty: Warzone but when that game launched in 2020, Activision said it took 10 days to reach 30million players.
That’s an average of three million players a day whereas Warzone 2.0 is, so far, averaging at five million players a day.
Activision made the announcement on Twitter and while some players have shared congratulatory messages, it didn’t take long for the responses to become inundated with demands for fixes.
Several fans say that they struggle to find online matches and, when they do, the game tends to crash frequently, meaning they don’t even get to finish the matches they do join.
Maybe 1 out of every 20 games is playable till end game

A quick skim through the Call Of Duty: Warzone subreddit reveals several threads of players complaining about certain bugs and glitches they keep running into.
One particularly nasty example is a bug that turns some people invisible, allowing them to get easy kills on unsuspecting players.
What’s worse is that the first Warzone suffered from this exact same bug, with it being a recurring problem from its 2020 launch. So, players aren’t thrilled to see it return for the sequel.
There is a public Trello board that keeps track of issues that need fixing and keeps players informed of what’s being worked on. However, at the time of writing, there’s no mention of the invisibility glitch at all.
The whole situation is more or less the same as what happened with Modern Warfare 2’s beta. While many players lambasted it as one of the worst betas they’ve experienced, Activision revealed that it had broken records to become the biggest beta in the Call Of Duty series’ history.
Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
