Call of Duty: Warzone Matches Are Being Ruined By New Out-Of-Map Glitch

Another significant exploit has been found in Call of Duty: Warzone’s Caldera map that is allowing players to go out of bounds.

Call of Duty: Warzone is currently experiencing a period of great turmoil. Between the gender discrimination controversies at Activision and several studios and the Raven Software QA department strike, the state of Call of Duty: Warzone is faltering. A statement was even issued recently for the Call of Duty brand acknowledging player frustrations and promising improvements. Unfortunately, in the interim, issues persist. The latest example is an exploit found in Call of Duty: Warzone‘s Caldera map allowing players to attack from out of bounds.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

A viral TikTok from user convermin called attention to the exploit, warning Call of Duty: Warzone players to avoid the Capital area in order to avoid the exploit. The video then sees convermin detail a method players are using to climb into the capital building’s geometry, from which they’re fully able to fire down into enemies below while being impervious to attacks from below. These exploiters are entirely within the geometry of the capital building, so they’re fully invisible to opposing players.

What’s especially frustrating about the newly discovered Capital exploit in Call of Duty: Warzone is that it has nothing to do with out-of-game cheats. All that’s required to use the exploit is a deployable shield, which is used as a way up into the building’s geometry. As such, there’s no simple way for Raven Software users to track who is using the exploit and how much.


This isn’t the first time that Call of Duty: Warzone has had issues with broken geometry causing issues. In fact, one of the bullet points listed in Activision’s message to the Call of Duty community recently highlighted several fixes to broken geometry and players could fire through. Further back, there were similar exploits on the Verdansk map as well.

These types of problems aren’t uncommon in any video game. Testing every bit of geometry to ensure players aren’t going somewhere they’re not supposed to have access to is a routine aspect of Quality Assurance. Of course, as previously mentioned, Raven’s QA team is currently striking due to broken promises from Activision. Instead of giving QA testers permanent positions, over a dozen developers were laid off. Activision has yet to even contact the QA team, which is likely a major contributor to ongoing technical problems with Caldera.


Now that attention is being called to the Capital exploit in Call of Duty: Warzone, a fix is likely an update or two away. Finding these exploits is typically more difficult than the fixes. Unfortunately, where one exploit is fixed, there are typically more to be discovered. Call of Duty: Warzone still has a way to go to solve the many frustrations with its Caldera map and Pacific update.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
