A new bug in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 battle royale mode Blackout has appeared and it's spawning all 100 players in the last circle. Redditor bwg11 shared a video of his experience which unfortunately ended before anyone could win.

A group of 100 players found themselves in a chaotic situation after a bug occurred during a Blackout match. Instead of allowing players to land at their preferred locations, the game decided to parachute all of them in the same place and straight into the last circle.

Some players failed to land inside the safe zone and died almost immediately as the penalty at that point is pretty brutal. But those who landed safely inside the circle were up for a real battle.

You can imagine what happened once all players landed and started running around punching each other because the majority of them didn't have any weapons. One lucky guy got himself an ARAV vehicle and it's safe to say he had a blast driving over everyone else.

Redditor bwg11, who uploaded the clip said that he never experienced anything similar in more than 200 Blackout matches. Other Redditors suggested that Treyarch should create a similar mode as the whole experience looked like a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, bwg11 received connection error and was kicked to the Blackout menu before anyone could claim the victory. Also, huge lag spikes were clearly noticeable and the game didn't really look playable which is probably the reason why the server kicked everyone out.

At the moment, no one has a clue what actually happened, was it just a bug or glitch of some kind? Maybe Treyarch is testing some additional modes? Whatever it was, it's certainly not something that can be experienced in Blackout every day. It will be interesting to see if the similar bug occurs again in the upcoming days.

You can watch bwg11's chaotic experience on Reddit .
