A bug known simply as the ‘demon-gun’ glitch is currently ravaging Call of Duty: Warzone. Essentially, there’s a chance that whenever you swap weapons, your gun will look like it has a huge black blob on it. Obviously, being able to see is quite important in any multiplayer shooter. This glitch is making the game nearly unplayable and high-profile streamers are beginning to get fed up. Many have called out Activision on social media to fix this bug—but is there an underlying issue in play?
Warzone gun glitch displays a bigger issue
The demon-gun glitch has been present in Warzone since the start of Season 5, which began one week ago. Since then, the problem has only been getting worse as matches continue to be plagued by this game-breaking bug.
However, Activision and Infinity Ward have remained pretty tight-lipped about the situation. While there was confirmation that they were looking at the problem, that was several days ago. Also, with such a huge problem in play, many feel like a patch should have come sooner.
Numerous high-profile streamers and influencers share this sentiment. Huge names like Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff and Tim “TimTheTatman” John Betar have stopped playing Warzone until the glitch is resolved. You can feel their frustrations in the tweets below.

I love Warzone so much but it’s so frustrating to play right now…

Both of these streamers have stated their love for Warzone, but simply can’t justify streaming it in its current state. Consequently, according to Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore, the game might not have a streaming future if Activision can’t figure out a way to streamlines patches more efficiently.
@Activision Billion dollar company can't fix simple bugs. Games going to die.

Game-breaking bugs need to be patched out ASAP and it’s obvious that these streamers feel the developers aren’t taking them seriously enough. If more glitches continue to arise and stick around for weeks on end, Warzone will soon decline in player count and viewership.
