Wall-glitching is back in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and it’s leading to some easy kills for those that abuse it.
For those that have never played a Call of Duty game before, wall-glitching is the process of getting stuck inside the map. By merging with a wall inside the map, a player becomes both invincible and invisible.
That isn’t to say that they aren’t able to fire on enemies, however. In fact, it often turns out that the Cold War wall-glitching bug leads to more than just a few easy kills.
Even in the game’s Beta, it appears that it’s possible to glitch yourself into walls with ease. And once in there, players are becoming a game-breaking force to be reckoned with.
Black Ops Cold War Wall-Glitch Location
As is the case in the past Call of Duty titles, wall-glitching isn’t possible in every game location. So far, it seems that the bug is limited to just the Moscow map.
As Reddit user TheCannabalLecter demonstrates, players can get themselves stuck in a wall near the courtyard area. In doing so, they can not only see through the map but also shoot through it.
The Reddit user can only see the bullets as they appear through the wall, and they are quickly killed. On the Kill Cam, the enemy’s vision isn’t at all restricted by the wall they’re stuck in, but they’re probably 100% bulletproof in there.
According to TheCannabalLecter’s comments, the wall-glitched Cold War player got Play of the Round this game. It also appears that the user intentionally got themselves into this situation to rack up easy kills.
Assuming that they had a grenade to hand, they could even easily get themselves unstuck when out of ammo.
Will Wall-Glitching Be Fixed by Cold War’s Release?
Another commenter in the Reddit thread also claims to have seen this Cold War wall-glitch in action. Again, the event was seen on the Moscow map, so hopefully, this is the only location where it is currently possible.
This is, after all, only the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta. Treyarch is likely using this period to find and eliminate bugs like this one.
However, the developer is also probably dealing with its fair share of issues right now. Players are complaining about a wide range of problems that they’re insisting the team fix immediately.
For instance, Cold War Beta players hate the game’s broken sliding mechanic. The new movement mechanic is causing major issues in-game, and it’s affecting player enjoyment of the Beta.
Players are already using aimbots and wallhacks in the Black Ops Cold War Beta too. Now we’ve got players seeing through walls and others getting stuck in them.
Treyarch certainly has its work cut out for them as we reach the conclusion of the Beta testing period. Hopefully, the developer will be able to resolve the majority of issues before the game’s actual launch.
