Raven Software releases mid-season patch notes
Raven Software has released a new Call of Duty Warzone update that includes a fix for the infinite stim glitch, which has become a recurring problem in the game.
The exploit can be abused to infinitely heal with stim packs while in the gas, virtually guaranteeing the user a win.
In this instance, Raven said the “issue stemmed from player getting stuck in throwback state after throwing back a live grenade.”
Elsewhere, the update adjusts the timing of ammo replenishment during empty reloads for Black Ops Cold War weapons, ensures selected operator missions for Stitch now track as intended, and addresses a Windows GDI32-related crash.

Warzone celebrates its first anniversary in March 2021
Publisher Activision said in December that the free-to-play battle royale game had attracted 85 million players since its release in March 2020.
And the publisher banned 60,000 Warzone accounts earlier this week for what it said were confirmed cases of players using cheat software, taking the total number of permabans to 300,000 worldwide since launch.
During its earnings call on Thursday, Activision said the first season of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone has seen the most Battle Pass sales since the introduction of the new in-game system in late 2019.
The company also announced plans to launch a new premium Call of Duty game in the fourth quarter of 2021 and claimed the franchise has generated $27 billion in lifetime sales since launching in 2003.
Activision is reportedly planning to release a new Cold War-themed Warzone map to coincide with the game’s first anniversary.
