A strange new visual glitch in Warzone Pacific is causing the screen to go black for players after using a Stim Shot and throwing them into the shadow realm.

Warzone Pacific players have had to deal with their fair share of bugs and glitches on the Caldera map. This includes the ones killing players who win their Gulag and letting spectators ruin Gulag matches.

These bugs can greatly affect your gameplay experience. Now, players are encountering a frustrating visual glitch that causes the screen to go black, throwing them into another dimension.

Reddit user ‘iixIL3G3ND4RYxii’ highlighted this bug on the CoD: Warzone subreddit. They posted a clip showcasing the conclusion of their 1v1 and using a Stim suddenly caused the screen to go dark.

The Redditor got thrown into the void and were unable to see exactly what was happening. The white flashes from the enemy’s bullets were the only visible thing and the screen only got fixed after the player went down.

The glitch also bewildered other Warzone players in the comments, who then joked about what happened. “Game thought it was Apex for a second and tried opening a Wraith portal,” one user sarcastically stated.

This glitch happened right after the player used a Stim Shot during combat. The Pacific Caldera update buffed these so that they add a speed boost, letting you super slide across the map.

This glitch can put players at a serious disadvantage so Raven Software will address it if it becomes too prevalent. The devs take the issue of bugs seriously and even delayed Warzone Pacific Season 2 to work on the game’s performance issues.
