Broken Warzone Bullfrog Blueprint

It appears a pay-to-win Bullfrog Blueprint has made its way to Call of Duty: Warzone, with the bugged weapon completely ruining audio cues and being banned from some tournaments.

With Modern Warfare’s major overhaul to Call of Duty’s cosmetics, devs were clear that purchasable items will provide no competitive advantage. However, thanks to bugs and glitches, that isn’t always the case.

Blueprint’s behaving slightly different from their base counterparts isn’t something new, with certain MAC-10, HDR, and XM4 Blueprints all being called “pay-to-win” at one point.

Now, it appears that a Bullfrog skin is completely messing up the game’s audio, giving the impression that shots are coming from all around.

Hearing and understanding audio cues is a major aspect of dominating Warzone, so it’s important you have the best audio settings. Yet, it turns out that a Bullfrog Blueprint is causing major audio issues, and it’s now been banned from competitive play.

Warzone pro and streamer ZLaner was playing with Dr Disrespect and TimTheTatman when he noticed that one of his teammates was using the bugged Bullfrog. It turned out to be Tim, so Z showed Doc and the audience exactly what the problem is.

After Tim fired the weapon, Doc immediately reacted by saying “Oh my god, no way!” ZLaner then clarified the issue, explaining that “it sounds like it’s all around you.” When this Bullfrog Blueprint is fired nearby, it appears that it’s impossible to track down exactly where the shots are coming from.

This Bullfrog issue appears to be well-known in the competitive community, with pro player exzachht reportedly nearly disqualified for using a Bullfrog Blueprint in the Z&Z tournament. He never used the broken one, but it proves it’s a serious issue.

The Blueprint in question, Blast Radius, sells in the Store for 2,400 COD Points so it appears that it is indeed pay-to-win. How much it affects regular public matches is uncertain but the competitive community has clearly found issues with it.

It’s highly unlikely the Blueprint is meant to act this way, so mow that it has entered the limelight, perhaps Raven Software will provide a fix in the future.
