Modern Warfare glitch lets players explore anticipated battle royale map
Spectator mode can be used to tour new map locations
A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare glitch lets players explore locations which look set to be included in the game’s anticipated but still to be confirmed battle royale mode.
YouTuber LLlMIT and Redditor KingBeezoR posted videos showing that the game’s spectator mode can be used to escape the confines of the recently released Vacant multiplayer map in order to tour new parts of the game world.
VGC independently verified the glitch, which lets users visit locations such as a sports stadium and a gulag prison previously revealed in a Modern Warfare battle royale datamine.
Another glitch discovered earlier this month also enabled users to get a bird’s eye view of a landscape which closely resembled the datamined battle royale map.

According to previously leaked data, Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode will introduce a fresh twist on player respawns.
Players will reportedly be able to obtain respawn tokens which place downed teammates in the gulag with other defeated players. Imprisoned players then queue for a chance to respawn into battle by winning a 1v1 duel.
At some point during the match, the gulag will close and no longer be usable, thus preventing respawns, it’s claimed.
Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode will also reportedly include perks, player missions and support for solo, duo and quad team modes.
In a nod to Apex Legends, players will be able mark vehicles, locations, items, enemies and dangerous locations for teammates to see, according to the leak.
Modern Warfare Season 1 and the game’s first Battle Pass launched in early December, while a Modern Warfare update released last week introduced updated versions of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer maps Vacant and Shipment, plus a new game mode and fresh Spec Ops experiences.
Publisher Activision claims Modern Warfare’s multiplayer component is the most played at launch of any Call of Duty game this generation.
Modern Warfare held off competition from FIFA 20 to secure the Christmas No.1 spot on the latest UK all formats chart.
