Original Story: The infamous Call of Duty: Warzone invisibility glitch has returned to fill the gap left by the infinite stim glitch, according to Eurogamer.  

The glitch, which first popped up in December of last year, seems to have returned as a byproduct of Raven Software's latest patch to fix the Call of Duty: Warzone stim glitch that plagued players for months. The original version of the invisibility glitch involved the newly added attack helicopter that became available when Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War integrated. Players who jumped in the helicopter's minigun seat would go invisible and stay that way for the entire match - it was thus called the 'God mode glitch' as it was almost impossible to kill anyone who utilized it. The attack helicopter was temporarily removed from the game to give developers a chance to patch it, and once it returned the invisibility glitch seemed gone for good.

Alas, that is not the case. Eurogamer reports that the invisibility glitch has reared its ugly head in the Armored Royale mode, which gives squads a decked-out cargo truck and a mobile buy station on wheels. In a YouTube video from Yoda0103, one Armored Royale quads match ends up with nine invisible players across five squads. While this invisibility glitch may be limited to one mode, it's clear that it's more rampant than the original helicopter one, and removing the cargo truck from Armored Royale mode would be pointless as its the focal piece. We'll see if the next batch of Call of Duty: Warzone patch notes rectify this in some way.

The last few months have seen an uptick in frustrating glitches and exploits in Warzone, with players using the infinite stim glitch unfettered for months, and not one but two skins that make players impossible to spot: the Call of Duty: Warzone Roze skin and GRINCH skin. As someone who still regularly plays Warzone, I can only hope the fixes will come sooner rather than later.
