Strange Call of Duty: Warzone Bug Lets Players Slide Uphill While Mounting and Aiming

The latest in a long line of odd Call of Duty glitches, a warzone player discovers a bug allowing them to slide along walls with a mounted weapon.

Though it’s not quite on the level of Battlefield 2042, Call of Duty fans have encountered more than a few potentially-problematic glitches in both the recently-released Call of Duty: Vanguard and the new-debuted Call of Duty: Warzone update. Quirks and oddities are to be expected in franchises with annual release schedules, and, compared to some of the out-of-bounds exploits encountered early on in Call of Duty: Vanguard’s multiplayer, a new bug isn’t anywhere near as egregious.


Reddit user u/I_like_to_run__ posted a clip on r/CODWarzone that highlighted a weird bug they experienced on the new Caldera map. When mounting a weapon on a chest-high wall, they were suddenly uphill along the wall at what seemed to be a velocity much faster than the normal running pace. The extent and applications of the glitch aren’t known, but, if nothing else, it was definitely eyebrow-raising.

First introduced in the 2019 iteration of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the weapon mounting mechanic was absent in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, but it returned in Call of Duty: Vanguard and caused headaches for gamers and developers alike. On launch, gamers who mounted their weapons on specific geometry could cause the heads of their character models to float upward indefinitely, turning many multiplayer matches into tremendously broken experiences. Worse still, the issue persisted for quite a while after the game debuted.

At present, this Call of Duty: Warzone glitch seems relatively harmless, but it could cause problems if it goes unpatched. At the moment, it may be useful for those desperate for a boost of on-foot speed in very specific circumstances, and it could potentially be used to get out of hazardous circumstances quickly, but, beyond that, it’s really only good for a laugh.

That said, those looking to experiment with the glitch may want to be careful. Activision seems to be eager to ban anyone exploiting unintended mechanics in the game, and the publisher has done just that to multiplayer gamers using the aforementioned “elevator” glitch in Call of Duty: Vanguard. Beyond that, a recent report suggests that Activision managed to ban 48,000 players across both games in a single day by way of its new Ricochet anti-cheat system.

It’s impossible to say exactly what is triggering this glitch in Call of Duty: Warzone, but, as ridiculous as a potential ban for unintentionally triggering a minor glitch may seem, its costs certainly outweigh the benefits.

Call of Duty: Warzone is currently available for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One.
