Original story (published on May 08) follows:

Warzone has almost been spoiled for the gamers as issues and bugs keep making appearances at regular intervals.

We recently saw the “Dev error 5573” that kicked out gamers during the gameplay. Battle Passes haven’t received positive feedback either.

Raven Software recently aired a Warzone update that brought some fixes for map exploits, weapons, and more optimizations. But turns out it triggered more issues than it intended to fix.


A new day begins and Warzone players have to bear the brunt. This time it is because of the Mini Gun that has been spawning from the supply boxes.

This comes right when people thought Call of Duty was finally done with Mini Guns, the gun pops out of the chest to disappoint gamers in both Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

The issue spread like a forest fire and therefore, reached Raven Software within no time. The company was quick to acknowledge this issue and added the ticket to the official Trello board.

It was later announced that a new Warzone playlist update has been rolled out that would restrict Mini Gun from spawning from the chests. The developers are still monitoring to see if this persists for players.


However, this wasn’t the only issue to spoil the game. Those who play it on Xbox One are facing a blacked-out screen during Exfill.

The screen won’t let you play any further and requires a game restart. This wipes out all the progress and wins so far which is annoying.

Well, there’s a glimmer of hope as the issue has now been acknowledged and is likely being worked upon as we speak.

It’s about time Warzone brings changes to improve on things that have posed as a pricking problem lately. Nobody wants to have a worse season than it already has become.

An expeditious series of corrections are required from the game developers. That said, we will keep tracking the issue and update here as and when it completely gets eradicated.

Update 1 (May 11)

The fix for Mini Gun spawning from Supply box has been released released
