Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is struggling with a lot of annoying bugs. But a glitch is causing a lot of excitement among the players: He pulls out the virtual hedge trimmer and cleans up the Cartel multiplayer map. The thick undergrowth in front of the hangar disappears and an astonishingly cool map emerges.
In the following we explain why the radical deforestation is so popular and what it means for upcoming maps in Cold War.
This is what the map with the bug looks like
Usually part of the cartel map is overgrown with scrub and tall grass, as seen in this clip, for example:

With the glitch it will be different. On Reddit, the user shared CapAustria
Although one might suspect that the bow provides far too little cover, it turns out that there are enough hiding spots even without the tall plants. Snipers still don’t have a clear field of fire, so Cartel doesn’t become a camper’s paradise. On the contrary, thanks to the bug, no one can lie in wait in the bushes, where they are practically invisible.
What’s behind the mistake? Probably the textures were simply not loaded correctly, according to the comments, the bug has also occurred with some other players. However, the glitch only lasts for one match, after which the bushes reappear. And many find that a shame.
Why is the bug so popular?
The Cartel map has been in place since the beta for discussionsbecause the thick undergrowth in front of the hall often causes frustration. It offers no protection, but is very effective at camouflaging players. Feel what basically sounds like an interesting feature many as unfair
Most players like the basic idea behind the undergrowth, but many would like the area to be reduced in size or less densely planted. That wouldn’t destroy the tactical element, but it could provide better balancing.
What does that mean for future maps? Cold War is not very suitable for camping because of its winding maps, which many praise. But the developers sometimes seem to overshoot the target: The poor visibility of the enemy is one of the biggest criticisms of Cold War players
Some players wish Even that Cold War copied something from Far Cry: They would like the opportunity to torch the undergrowth with Molotovs.
Editor Peter is of the opinion that the real strength of Cold War is the single player – but it gives away a lot of potential. He wants the campaign as its own game:

CoD Cold War would be better as a single player role-playing game
The new multiplayer map Nuketown ’84 has just appeared, but it doesn’t bring a playful revolution. Like the other Cold War maps, it is compact and particularly suitable for aggressive and fast gameplay. There is a double XP boost for a week at the launch.
