Call of Duty: Warzone patch fixes parachute randomly opening bug

The mid-season patch for Call of Duty: Warzone’s Season 5 is here.

Infinity Ward has rolled out a new update to refresh Season 5 in Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare. Apart from the new LMG, and the repurposed Trials as part of Games of Summer, there’s not a lot of new content in this one.

Warzone players have King Slayer to look forward, a TDM-style mode where the play area randomly moves around the map. The patch itself is 11.3GB (17.6GB for premium) on PC, 10.6GB on PS4 and 14.09GB on Xbox One. Most of the changes, however, are not very exciting, likely because some of the bigger fixes and balance tweaks have been going live in smaller patches since the start of the season.

The biggest thing in Warzone is a fix for the bug where jumping over certain objects would sometimes trigger part of the parachute animation. In Ground War, players will now be able to spawn on APCs even when they are in combat, provided the vehicle is not low on health.

Read on below for the full change log.

General fixes

  • Ground War: You can now spawn on APCs even while they’re in combat, just as long as the vehicle isn’t low on health.
  • You can now inspect your weapon during infil sequences!
  • Fix for a bug where players could see Tracker footprints on the ground after respawning, even when they don’t have the perk equipped.

  • Also, fixed a bug where the Riot Shield could appear crooked in the squad walk.
  • Fixed a bug where using Flaming Throwing Knives would not reset Dead Silence.
  • Season 5 Week 1 challenge reads: “Call in the Personal UAV Killstreak 7 Times.” Should be written as Personal Radar.

  • Fix for an issue where the scoreboard could reflect inaccurate information when going from a multiplayer match to a Warzone match.
  • Fixed a bug where some users were unable to unblock players.

  • Fixed a bug where players will observe no ping audio from a spectator creating world pings.
