Warzone's Ashika Island Gets Twisted: Map Glitches Cause Confusion Among Players

The renowned Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale experience has recently been marred by an odd graphical glitch following its latest update, which is causing sections of the Ashika Island map to seemingly defy gravity, warping skyward in an unexpected anomaly. This issue has added to the game's historical set of battlefield locations, including Al Mazrah and Verdansk, which have all been periodically updated with new terrains. Ashika Island, although designed to echo the aesthetic of Modern Warfare 3, is the latest to suffer visual disruptions.

Call of Duty has expanded its universe through the introduction of new titles since 2020, leading to various thematic changes within Warzone's map selections. Although not all updates mirror the most recent game release, they still contribute to a cohesive player environment, be it in battle royale mode, the Call of Duty Zombies open-world experience, or within the Modern Warfare 3 campaign storyline. Despite their unique appeal, these updates haven't been without issues, especially Warzone, which has faced its share of bugs.

The most recent technical hiccup has puzzled players and even affected navigation on the map. A Reddit post by Open24Seven brings this issue to light. The footage they shared illustrates an instance where the gamer exits a building only to witness segments of the terrain levitating above their normal position. These areas display what looks to be different points of interest, resembling other maps like Verdansk or Al Mazrah. In their journey, the player witnesses these elevated structures phase in and out of existence, distorting the landscape they maneuver.

This phenomenon has sparked discussion among the Call of Duty community, with many speculating that this undulating terrain is a glitch that has been sporadically surfacing since Season 1 kicked off. Some gamers suggest that these distortions occur in scenarios of high network latency, leading to assumptions that the player's connection or server issues might be at play.

For competitive players like Open24Seven, such irregularities could potentially disrupt gameplay and turn the tide of battle. Aware of such intricacies and their impact on gameplay, the joint forces of Infinity Ward and Raven Software, vested in the game's maintenance, are anticipated to address these disturbances in an upcoming patch. Should this issue be among those recognized by the developers from the onset of Season 1, it's likely that a resolution is in the pipeline to ensure players can immerse themselves in a stable and accurate representation of the Warzone world.
