The troublesome pores and skin in query is the Awoken operator outfit for Francis, which is unlocked on the most stage of Warzone Pacific’s Season 1 battle move.
This bug has apparently been within the recreation for the reason that launch of the Warzone Pacific replace in mid-December, however reviews of gamers utilizing the pores and skin to vanish (deliberately or not) have skyrocketed prior to now week as extra gamers have acquired the pores and skin by way of the battle move. Much like Warzone’s previous points with invisible skins, the Awoken bug appears to be a level-of-detail error that makes the character’s physique mechanically disappear when he is round 35 meters away from you, as demonstrated by streamer BennyCentral.
The one a part of the Awoken pores and skin that does not disappear is its distinct glowing masks, that means from a distance, enemy gamers need to goal at a goal the scale of the Aku Aku mask from Crash Bandicoot.
