Black Ops Cold War Bug Makes Fireteam Dirty Bomb Unplayable

Black Ops Cold War is full of bugs and glitches, but this new discovery appears to make Fireteam: Dirty Bomb entirely unplayable.

It’s true that Black Ops Cold War hasn’t had a flawless launch, but the game has still worked mostly as intended. That is, until now, as a new bug appears to be making Fireteam: Dirty Bomb unplayable for some fans.

Fireteam: Dirty Bomb is one of Call of Duty’s newest game modes, which aims to replicate Warzone’s success. In it, players drop into a map as part of teams of 4 and attempt to build dirty bombs to win.

But despite some players enjoying the new way to play, it appears that a bug is now making Fireteam: Dirty Bomb unplayable altogether. Treyarch needs to bump this one up the ever-growing list of things to fix in Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War’s Fireteam: Dirty Bomb Has a Game-Breaking Bug

In a new post on the Black Ops Cold War subreddit, one user shows off the game-breaking Fireteam: Dirty Bomb bug. The Cold War fan points out that there are 6 people on his team, and that’s only the beginning of the problem.

The bigger issue is that it appears that players are spawning outside of the game’s map entirely. Reddit user knoxxb1‘s spawn is well above the Fireteam: Dirty Bomb game, and he can spot several other players in similar positions.

With nobody able to enter the game, the players are trapped forever until they leave the lobby. They can all see the map thousands of feet below them, but textures are glitching as you’d well expect.

“I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game,” one player comments.

Black Ops Cold War is indeed having more than its fair share of issues right now. This is likely because the game was given a strict time limit to release.

Having taken over late in development from Sledgehammer games, Treyarch didn’t have long to work on the project. Perhaps playtesting wasn’t as possible as with a standard Call of Duty title.

Here is a list of other bugs that Black Ops Cold War players are currently encountering:
