A fix for a debilitating bug affecting the Ghost perk is on the way, says Warzone development studio Raven Software.

Ghost is a crucial element of the current Warzone meta game. As frequent usage of UAVs is one of the most common strategies in the game, Ghost offers one of the few effective countermeasures by hiding its users from UAV scans.

Unfortunately, the perk doesn't appear to be working as intended — at least, not always. Warzone streamer Jessie Cooks demonstrated an incident in which she and her teammates all took loadouts with Ghost, but an enemy team could still see them clear as day with their UAV. That video went viral in July, but the bug appeared constrained to private matches until the Season 6 update was applied in early October.

Raven Software acknowledged the bug Thursday and has added it to the Trello board it uses to keep track of in-game problems.

"An issue has been identified with the Ghost perk not functioning correctly in Private Matches. We have a fix in the works!" Raven tweeted. "*And Public Matches!" the studio amended minutes later in a follow-up tweet.

In the Trello board, the bug is tagged both as "Investigating" and "Fix Scheduled." An exact date for the fix's release has yet to be announced.
