[Updated] COD Warzone Polina 'Cloaked for Combat' & Astrakhan skin issues acknowledged
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on March 15, 2022) follows:
Call of Duty Warzone is one of the few free-to-play titles in the long-running franchise. Activision said that the game had more than 100 million players as of April 2021.
But players have bashed developers and called Warzone a chaotic bug fest because of the number of issues that have surfaced since its launch. And as if these existing glitches weren’t enough, players are now reporting new issues with the in-game skins.
Polina ‘Cloaked for Combat’ skin bug
Many COD Warzone players are reporting (1,2,3,4,5) that the Polina ‘Cloaked for Combat’ skin is showing the default MW operator head. Some are apparently frustrated since they bought the skin and want to see Polina’s head.
You can see in the image below how the bugged Polina Cloaked for Combat skin looks like for some Warzone players.
@RavenSoftware can you please fix the Polina “Cloaked for combat” skin? I literally paid for it to be a bugged skin were the head is replaced with a default in the menu and then to become the Otter operator in game.
@RavenSoftware The Polina operator from the Locked Target bundle is showing up in the main menu with a different operator’s head and is often not usable in Warzone despite being equipped (default MW operator in its place). Just putting it on your radar!
Thankfully, Warzone developers are aware of the issue with the Polina ‘Cloaked for Combat’ skin and said they are investigating the problem.
Astrakhan Skin bug
As it turns out, Warzone players are saying that the Astrakhan skin is bugged as well. Many say that the coat is blocking the view when they skydive or run in-game.
@RavenSoftware can y’all fix padmavati skins the coat keeps blocking when I’m skydiving an when I run
fix up the “astrakhan” skin please. my friend spent $20 just for a glitched skin. It doesn’t work on warzone!
Fortunately, Raven Software seems to be aware of the the issue and said they are currently investigating the bug.
We hope Warzone developers soon find out the reason why the Polina ‘Cloaked for Combat’ and Astrakhan skins are bugged and fix it in the coming days so players can use them once again.
