A newly discovered glitch with a paid Call of Duty (COD): Warzone Pacific Battle Pass skin has given Battle Pass owners an advantage.
Ben "BennyCentral" Perkins, YouTube content creator and former professional COD player, has discovered a new glitch in COD Warzone Pacific that makes other players with a specific Battle Pass skin turn completely invisible once they're out of a certain radius. BennyCentral posted a clip of the glitch to his verified Twitter profile in the early morning of Wednesday, Dec. 15, writing a short description of the bug and asking Raven Software to "please fix" it.
"So, I just discovered the Tier 100 skin in Warzone Pacific makes you Invisible past 35 meters after last nights update..." He wrote.
New Warzone Glitch Potentially Makes Game "Pay to Win"
Sure enough, the attached video shows exactly what BennyCentral described. In the 30 second clip, he has another player directly in the crosshairs with his scope and watches as they slowly back up and begin to move away from him. He advances on them, only to find the player has completely disappeared from the map in a way that shouldn't be possible in such a short amount of time.
The skin in question is the legendary "Awoken" Francis appearance awarded for reaching tier 100 of the latest Battle Pass.
A few other players replied to the tweet showcasing their own experiences with the invisibility glitch and other skins in the update. One, in particular, attached a photo of a player who appeared exclusively as a "floating head."
Fans were not happy at the reveal of this new glitch—particularly because it now gave Battle Pass holders a significant advantage over free-to-play users. This, in essence, creates a scenario where Warzone Pacific is "pay-to-win" or, at the very least, "pay-for-extra-powers."
"Nice, Benny doing the developers job maybe if they didn't fire half the QA testers this game wouldn't be such a sh*t show," one wrote.
Another replied, "I cannot god damn."
Raven Software has yet to acknowledge the glitch or post a note about it on its Trello board at the time of writing.
