A Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War player has encountered a new bug that has dramatic effects on the outcome of a game. Due to the bug, the names of the players on the opposing team can be seen through walls. This makes it clear at all times where the enemies are on the map. This bug provides an unfair advantage, especially in competitive game modes.
One of the first players to spot this bug is YouTuber DylanSeeK. He has now published a clip on Twitter showing the bug in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (buy now € 53.99 ) shows in action. He can easily turn off opponents in Search & Destroy thanks to the name display. We have included the video for you below.
The bug is very reminiscent of the so-called wall hacks with which cheaters in shooters can see their enemies through walls. In the case of DylanSeeK, however, it was not intentional for opponents to be visible in this way. It is not yet clear why this error occurs. Treyarch probably didn't know about this bug either, as it is not in the list of known problems. The team will probably take care of the bug quickly and remove it from the game with an upcoming update.
Just last week the creators released a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. In our report on the patch, we presented all changes in detail. In addition, the first rumors about the title of the next offshoot have surfaced.

So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now.
