Camouflage suits are there to camouflage the wearer – logically. What is happening in Call of Duty: Warzone, however, is clearly going too far: A paid one Skin makes players completely invisible. Regardless of the terrain. Behind this is apparently another serious bug in the Battle Royale.
If you’re thinking, “Groundhog every week,” then you are not so wrong. Exactly a week ago we reported a similar problem with a Roze skin. This time things are worse – but there is more reason to be hopeful.

Warzone skin causes Pay2Win trouble
Invisibility cloak instead of camouflage suit: that is the problem
Which skin causes trouble? Specifically, it’s about the Forest Spirit Skin for the operator Grinch, who turns the fighter into one Ghillie Suit plugged. It would be expected that it would provide better camouflage in the forest.
Instead, it simply makes the player model disappear from a certain distance – only the air seems to waft a little. It then looks something like the player wearing a nanosuit from Crysis in invisible mode. The YouTuber Scop3s_ discovered the error and measured it.

As you can see in the clip, the player with the skin becomes invisible, although he should actually be clearly visible in front of the light wall. According to a test by Scop3s_, the problem occurs at these distances:
- If you don’t aim: 34 meters
- If you aim (ADS): 55 meters
- If you aim at 4x magnification: 125 meters, head and weapon remain visible
In concrete terms: For example, your opponent can stand freely on the street in front of the airport and you cannot see him when you peek out of the entrance of a hall. This is of course absolutely fatal for the game balance.
Is that Pay2Win? The skin is in the Eloko bundle, which you can buy for 1,800 CoD points (around 15 dollars). Since the cosmetic item has a huge advantage and is only unlocked for real money, many players see a case of Pay2Win here, just like with the problematic Roze skin. But there is one important difference.
Accidental error: It is definitely a bug that came into play unintentionally with an update. Since the merger of Warzone and Call of Duty: Cold War, such errors have appeared quite often, even with chargeable weapon skins.
The good news isthat the developers will most likely fix the bug in an upcoming patch. The Roze skin, on the other hand, has a fundamental design problem.
