[Updated] COD Vanguard, Warzone, Modern Warfare, & Black Ops Cold War bug/issue/problem tracker: Reported, acknowledged, & more
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 12, 2021) follows:
The Call of Duty (COD) franchise has offered some of the finest first-person shooter games. With recent entries like the COD Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War, the franchise has taken its multiplayer universe to another level.
However, such multiplayer games with a virtually endless player base often fall victim to bugs and issues.
Also, the latest entry in the Black Ops series, COD Black Ops Cold War, has seen issues like the ‘Bravo 433 destructive gator’ error and more.
All in all, it is hard to keep tabs on the exact number of users playing these games. And with the evolution of multiplayer gaming, such bugs and issues are quite natural as long as they are being taken care of.
While many major bugs and issues with such games get resolved on priority, some are left for another time or are even forgotten over time.
Moreover, it is virtually impossible to resolve each and every issue in such massive games. That’s where workarounds may come in handy but even they do not guarantee a flawless gaming experience.
All that concerned players can do is stay updated with the latest info about any bugs and issues. Activsion is maintaining individual Known Issues trackers for the COD Warzone, Modern Warfare, and Black Ops Cold War.
However, players can also easily find all the bugs and issues present in the aforementioned titles along with their current status and any workarounds in this consolidated tracker.
