New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on March 09, 2022) follows:

COD Warzone is the first battle-royale game on the Call of Duty saga. It has been available since 2020 in a free-to-play format.

Just like other free-to-play games, Warzone developers make money by offering weapon packs, items, skins etc. However, currently some weapons are not working properly.

More specifically, many COD Warzone players are unable to use or equip the Vargo 52 FerroFluid blueprint weapon (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).

COD Warzone Vargo 52 FerroFluid blueprint not working

Social platforms like Twitter and Reddit are full of reports related to the issue. The Vargo 52 is an assault rifle inherited from COD: Black Ops Cold War.


Meanwhile, the FerroFluid blueprints is part of the Ferro Fury pack which includes blueprints for a set of weapons and items. Basically, it gives an attractive purple-tinted look to equipment.

But, many COD Warzone players are reporting that the Vargo 52 FerroFluid blueprint is not working as they are unable to use it after spending money on it.


@RavenSoftware @charlieINTEL Day 5 of asking if The vargo 52 blueprint is going to be fixed Any time soon still not an update since It was tweeted out working on a fix exactly 5 days ago i Mean come on.

@PrestigeIsKey @RavenSoftware @ATVIAssist Are we going to be able to use the vargo 52 blueprint in warzone anytime soon? it sucks I paid 2000 COD points something that is broken. 🙁

The Ferro Fury pack that includes the Vargo 52 FerroFluid blueprint is priced at 2,000 COD Points. Although COD Points can be earned in-game, they are usually not enough to buy expensive packs, so players use real money to speed up the process.

Microsoft reportedly issuing refunds

According to some reports, Microsoft is issuing refunds for affected players on Xbox consoles.

Microsoft is issuing refunds on non working bundles Raven won’t fix

Microsoft is aware of all the bundles for WZ Raven has not fixed and is issuing refunds so act now Xbox users.

This includes the Death Bite bundle all Xbox platforms where operator‘s gas mask does not show in WZ and blueprints are incorrect as advertised. This also includes the blueprint for the non working WZ Vargo 52. I sent screenshots and was refunded regardless if they finally fix it or not. Microsoft is aware of this issue with Raven Software.

Microsoft refunds could apply to both the FerroFluid pack and any other ‘broken’ pack. But, there is no official confirmation of this from Microsoft yet.

On the other hand, Raven Software is aware of the issue and they reflect it on their public Trello board. However, there is no estimated arrival date for a fix yet.
