I can not consider a extra infuriating technique to lose a battle royale match than to get kills, outlast 148 different souls, and thoroughly maneuver to the ultimate circle solely to appreciate you are by some means alone on the map and die of poison fuel as soon as the circle fully closes.

Such has been the plight for victims of Name of Responsibility: Warzone 2’s worst bug as of late. For months gamers have reported situations of getting caught within the gulag, Warzone’s second probability system that allows you to earn your manner again to land of the residing by successful a 1v1. These affected by the bug arrive within the gulag to await their duel, however the game merely forgets you are there, trapped in Name of Responsibility purgatory whereas the remainder of the match occurs miles away.

You may simply merely go away the match, however because the game nonetheless considers you a stay participant, it is also potential to attend patiently within the snug jail till the final opponent dies a complicated loss of life on Al Mazrah. 

A number of situations of the bug I discovered truly occurred with two gamers caught within the gulag on the similar time, as in the event that they’re meant to be matched in a 1v1 duel that by no means occurs. In no less than one case this led to an endurance match between two remaining gulagers that continued lengthy after everybody on the principle map was lifeless.

“Been caught within the Gulag with this random for 15 minutes. It is solely us two left within the game,” person Matt8992 wrote on Reddit mid-match. “He is gone to take a smoke break.”

An annoying encounter for certain, nevertheless it may very well be worse. So far as I can inform you aren’t capable of intentionally set off the bug, so jerks aren’t going round gleefully ruining Warzone for different folks. No, that dishonor belonged to Warzone 1’s most pervasive and irritating exploit that allowed gamers to infinitely heal themselves exterior the zone, the notorious stim glitch.

For the reason that stranded gulag bug is not practically as disruptive (but, no less than), it would not seem like on Activision’s radar. The bug is not current in any respect on Warzone’s official identified points tracker, so it could be some time earlier than this one’s fastened.
