Warzone Season 5 Loadout Movement Bug a Potential Game Breaker

Warzone Season 5 went live on August 12th, as we now know the patch came with its share of new guns, map changes, bug fixes, and even new perks and operators as discussed in a previous post.

I’ve been watching a lot of Warzone content revolving around the new season 5 update and besides the new gun loadouts, perks, and map changes (now you can hear drilling noises all around the map for some reason) becoming potentially meta I stumbled upon two different YouTubers having the same bug-glitch.

The new warzone season 5 bug that keeps you from moving…

It looks like that after you go over the buy station (not anyone in particular) and buying a loadout your character starts moving in a set direction without you having to press any keys or even moving your keyboard.  The movement bug has been captured on a number of popular YouTube creator videos while playing the new content.

Thankfully it looks like there is a fix for the loadout movement bug, which can be fixed by pressing the backwards movement key until the game will let you move forwards again, as seen in this video.  As some players in the comments were saying that they have experienced the same thing as well and some even joked around the issue saying that it was “a new moonwalk feature” added to the game.

Activision has been pretty good about stomping out bugs in Warzone, but it’s hard to tell how long this one will persist.  If not fixed this issue could be a big problem once the meta is settled and the tournaments start again.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, PS5,  Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One.
