A Warzone bug is causing the ever-popular Ghost Perk to not function as intended during private and public matches in Season 6.

Raven Software had been pretty busy to say the least in recent weeks when it comes to Call of Duty: Warzone, not only due to The Haunting Halloween event still running, but also due to hiccups that have garnered some major attention from the community for the devs to fix. One was the removal of the Plunder, Clash and Payload modes, which should have at least one of them return with the Oct. 28 playlist update. Another was an issue preventing some players from being able to equip the Ghost of War skin, which Raven has said they've already addressed as well.

At the time of writing, however, there still appears to be a major glitch that is making the Ghost Perk function very inconsistently.

As noted on Raven's official Tello board, they are still investigating a fix for the Ghost Perk. According to many Warzone players at the moment, Ghost is working correctly about half of the time when it's supposed to be.

For those who need a refresher, here's the official description of the Ghost Perk in Warzone:

"Undetectable by UAVs, Radar Drones, and Heartbeat Sensors. Still appear on kill streak radar when firing a weapon. Detectable by Advanced UAV, but removes direction."

While Ghost seems to be keeping players off of Heartbeat Sensors as intended, the glitch appears to be making Ghosted players still show up on UAVs when they shouldn't be.

This is making the intel battle inconsistent not only for teams looking to hide their locations, but also those looking to engage in fights who are trying to make sense of the sporadic blips showing up on the minimap.
