A new glitch in Warzone has caused mass hilarity with nukes unimpressively crashing all over the map—revealing the end of Season 2.

Players in Call of Duty: Warzone are witnessing the "end of the world" and living to tell about it. A new glitch has caused the mechanic for the end of Season 2 to fire early, though its actual effects on Verdansk are minimal. According to various voice lines, Captain Price and his cohort will be blasting the entire map in an effort to rid the area of zombies.

New Warzone Glitch Causes Nukes to Fire Early

The glitch was first discovered by Reddit user AmedeeO10. In a post on the CODWarzone subreddit, they uploaded a video showcasing the mechanic.

"Was playing a game of King Slayers when missiles started launching and then crashing/disappearing in the ground," they wrote, "My assumption is that this is a part of the upcoming nuke event in Warzone."

According to AmedeeO10, they could also hear Russian Operators talking over the communications—likely part of the event, as well.

The nukes are clearly visible in the attached video. AmedeeO10 follows the arching trajectory of several missiles with their scope from their vantage point near the SKN building. About halfway through, a handful of Russian voice lines can clearly be heard. The missiles land primarily on the outskirts of the urban map with a puff of smoke.

Other videos began to surface shortly afterward. Some offered a closer look at the nukes with players being within the radius of their crash. However, nothing affected them, leading to the conclusion that the entire sight was a misfire.

Nevertheless, players were shocked upon witnessing them. The replies to AmedeeO10's video were filled with anecdotes of terror before realizing it was just a bug.

"Dear mom, I need a new pair of pants.
Sincerely,
your son in Verdansk," wrote user ILikeCap.

None of the developers behind the game have issued any comments or statements about this issue at the time of writing.
