CoD: Warzone’s “Demon Glitch” Has Now Possessed Vanguard

Call of Duty: War­zone play­ers should be famil­iar with the tex­ture bug only know as the “demon gun glitch” which dis­torts the play­er’s view. Well, this rather irri­tat­ing bug has man­aged to creep its way to Call of Duty: Van­guard’s multiplayer.

This tex­ture glitch (or demon glitch) turns weapons and oper­a­tors into jagged mess­es of poly­gon dis­tor­tion. Some of these visu­al glitch­es just affect the sur­face of a gun, but oth­ers can be more serious–taking up the who screen. How­ev­er, Van­guard play­ers report entire maps seem­ing to be cov­ered in jagged polygons.

Red­dit user, Fatal_Overflow shared a clip from a Dom­i­na­tion match on Van­guard’s Das Haus, where you can see the clus­ters of shapes burst­ing all around the play­er. These types of glitch­es are extreme­ly dis­tract­ing, and can make it impos­si­ble to play. 

Addi­tion­al­ly, Red­dit user Juu­ju­ubeanss post­ed a clip from a match on Ship­ment, show­ing their oper­a­tor spawn­ing with their whole view blocked by these demon tex­tures. This play­er spawned and died a few times, tweaked their set­tings, but even­tu­al­ly just left the match because noth­ing would fix it.

Beenox, the PC devel­op­er for Call of Duty, tweet­ed aware­ness of the issue with Van­guard’s poly­gon demons. They offered some Nvidia cards a tem­po­rary solu­tion of rolling back dri­vers to at least 472.84 The develeop­er said they are “work­ing hard to get it fixed.”

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it appears this issue isn’t sole­ly a PC prob­lem, as play­ers on con­sole seem to be run­ning into it as well. Hope­ful­ly, Beenox and Sledge­ham­mer Games can push a fix out soon­er than a month from now.

This tex­ture bug is just one of many that’s been plagu­ing both Call of Duty: Van­guard and War­zone. Play­ers have even voiced their frus­tra­tions with the state of both games, lead­ing Activi­sion to release an offi­cial state­ment on Jan­u­ary 13th with promis­es to fix the game.

In oth­er news, Activi­sion Bliz­zard is being bought out by Microsoft for almost $70 bil­lion. This is even amid Activi­sion Bliz­zard strug­gling with employ­ee walk­outs and law­suit, as well as oth­er investigations.
