After a long three-month absence, attack helicopters have returned to Call Of Duty: Warzone, and there might be a cost. It was previously reported back in December that the attack choppers were removed after Warzone had become riddled with an invisibility bug.
While it’s still too soon to say, early indications from streamers suggest the invisibility bug is back and causing the same problems it did last year. Xbox One streamer BennyCentral commented on Twitter that the glitch had been “added back into Warzone the exact same way”, later questioning how it’d managed to resurface in the game unnoticed.
My mind was just blown by the invis glitch being added back into Warzone the exact same way it was in it last time… Like how has that even gone past testing???
I'd be happy to have less frequent updates if it meant everything worked when added… @RavenSoftware

“I’d be happy to have less frequent updates if it meant everything worked when added…” Benny added. In a separate post, SonnenSoldat posted a short clip of the invisibility glitch in action, and it’s frustrating, to say the least.
Over on ModernWarzone, players are posting their clips of the bug before the latest update, Season Two Reloaded, went live at the end of March. The bug is most problematic in Plunder and the game’s Kingslayer playlist.

In other recent Warzone news, the creators of SBMMWarzone.com were ordered by Activision to shut the site down. SBMMWarzone, which obtains player data using the Call Of Duty API, which can then provide the useful statistics to players, is in violation of Activision’s copyright, the studio says.
The Belgian-based team behind SBMM Warzone was sent a cease-and-desist by lawyers representing Activision, ordering the website to be shut down due to privacy concerns. In the following days since GameLuster reported the story, SBMMWarzone has been subsequently shut down.
“Your Warzone stats are no longer available. We still believe we can reach an agreement with Activision to provide you with the stats you love. Hey Activision, let’s partner up.” the SBMMWarzone team confirmed on Twitter.
We’ve met @Activision’s demand and have shut down our website. Your Warzone stats are no longer available. We still believe we can reach an agreement with Activision to provide you with the stats you love. Hey @Activision, let’s partner up.https://t.co/FRyI9DJwRq
