Crazy Warzone glitch adds extra player to Gulag

Getting third-partied is the bane of most Call of Duty: Warzone players, but a strange glitch had a third player show up in a 1v1 Gulag.

While Warzone can be scary enough at times, with Roze skins hiding in dark corners and a Zombie outbreak by Port for Season 2, a player appeared to witness something supernatural in the Gulag.

The Gulag is designed to be one-on-one, but a strange glitch shared by ‘Minimus Max’ on YouTube had a third player enter the fray. Players throwing rocks at Gulag competitors can be a nuisance, but a third player joining in on the fun is a new anomaly.

Waiting to fight for their return ticket to Verdansk, another player appeared beside Minimus Max, aiming an HDR Sniper Rifle down mid. Visibly confused, Minimus Max aimed their Crossbow at the uninvited guest, but before they could finish asking “why is there somebody in my Gulag?” the other player blinked out of existence, and the 1v1 began. Our player quickly recovered and won the fight with a nice Crossbow shot.

What appears to have happened here is two Gulags took place at the same time. When the other player disappeared, they likely died in their own Gulag.

If this glitch continues, it could make the already controversial Nuketown Gulag even more disliked. If the other fight went on for longer, it’s possible a four-player melee could have taken place.

Activision and Raven Software keep players updated on known issues and their progress on their official Trello board, but as of yet, uninvited guests appearing in the Gulag isn’t included. If this glitch becomes more common, expect it to be added there and fixed in a future update.

In the meantime, if this glitch appears in your Gulag, you’ll know what to expect and can use the other player as a distraction for an easy kill on your confused opponent.
