“Call of Duty: Warzone players are still convinced that the Ghost perk is not operating as it should in the battle royale, despite developers insisting that issues are purely visual and the perk is functioning perfectly. ”
Warzone, as was to be expected with any battle royale of its size, has been plagued by bugs and glitches in the months since its launch. From the infamous ‘demon gun glitch’ to ‘infinite stim’, it’s fair to say that all players will have been affected by an issue from time to time.
One feature of some glitches is the Ghost Perk. This perk is designed to hide player from a UAV so player couldn’t be spotted. It can be acquired by selecting a class with it equipped from a Loadout Drop.
However, much debate has taken place about its strength and how it interacts with the one and only HeartBeat sensor.
The Developers from infinity ward have stated “it is merely a graphical killcam glitch, and that players are not being picked up by sensors if they are running Ghost. That hasn’t convinced players, though.”
Redditor ‘u/RealUserID’ posted: “Heartbeat detects through Ghost perk again. I just watched on the replay. Guy holding HBS out. Only one dot blips… exactly where I was, he turns and finds me exactly where it shows.”
Some people were quick to say that this is a visual bug just like most of the other glitches in the game. People say this is a visual bug because on the killcam it shows were the people are on the Heartbeat sensor even if they have the ghost perk on.
“I’ve heard people say this but like [original poster] I’ve watched people use the sensor, see me on it, and turn specifically to where it was looking for me,” one said. “Could be a crazy coincidence but doesn’t feel like it.”
“I noticed the same thing since the update,” another said. “People just said to me too that the players are cheating or that it’s just a visual glitch (because it was at some point a few months back), but I am completely certain that you are right and sometimes ghost simply does not work. I have seen too many killcams like this.”

Infinity Ward yet again has a visual bug and its not as bad as the other but its definitely up there. Whether Warzone’s devs will ever release a fix for the visual issues remains to be seen, but it would certainly go a long way to calming players’ concerns.
