Players are having to contend with plenty of Call of Duty glitches right now, and there’s one particular graphics-based one that is ruining their immersion. A Modern Warfare smoke black box bug is causing glitches to appear during matches whenever smoke enters the field of play. This can be through smoke grenades, buildings falling, or rockets being fired. If your experience is being ruined by this, you’ll want to know how to fix it. Check out this Modern Warfare smoke black box bug guide for more information on how to do so.
Modern Warfare Smoke Black Box Bug | Graphical glitch
As we mentioned, players are encountering a bizarre glitch that makes black boxes appear on the screen whenever smoke is in the area. Other Call of Duty games haven’t had this problem, so for Modern Warfare to suffer from it is surreal, to say the least.
Threads have popped up on the game’s Reddit page as players seek a way to stop experiencing this glitch. As you can see from the image in this Reddit post, the dispersing smoke only causes more black boxes to appear on the screen. It’s incredibly frustrating, especially if you end up getting sniped or killed because you can’t see an enemy through this glitch.
Modern Warfare Smoke Black Box Bug | Is there a fix?
At the time of writing, there isn’t a solution to this graphical glitch. Activision and Infinity Ward have been inundated by annoyed gamers who are being subjected to plenty of other bugs since the game launched. As you’d expect, the support website is struggling under the amount of traffic it’s receiving, so we can’t verify if this is known by the developers or not.
If you want to help, you can lodge a complaint ticket on the Activision support Twitter page. Alternatively, do so on the actual support page, if you can access it. This will help the duo locate the problem and, hopefully, resolve it as soon as possible.
