One Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War player shares a video that can make fans think twice about fighting mimics near the escort rover.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Players had a lot of fun with the game’s Outbreak mode as Treyarch apparently has a lot planned for the open-world Zombies offering. Outbreak is not without glitches, however, as a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War discovers a new bug related to the escort destination.
Escort is one of the more difficult targets in Outbreak as players need to protect a rover as it moves to three different points. After each point is hit, a random item will appear in the rover’s cage, ranging from random machines to helpful tools like crystals and power-ups. Even with the most beneficial drops, the task becomes considerably more difficult in higher world levels as mini-bosses start to spawn. As Redditor Angel_0136 shows, it seems that mimics can be especially dangerous with escort.

A clip released on Reddit by Angel_0136 begins with the Mimic miniboss grabbing the player in one of the enemy’s main attacks. While everything seems normal with the special animation, the Reddit user quickly realizes that something went wrong after being thrown back by the creature of Dark Aether. Instead of landing on solid ground, they are thrown straight into the moving rover. This allows the player to see right through the vehicle, but instead of falling out on the other side, they are trapped right in the middle.
For the next minute of the clip, the player fires the RAI K-84 wonder weapon at groups of zombies, and while they successfully kill some of their undead enemies, Angel_0136 gets stuck in the escort rover. The players in the Redditor group are moving the vehicle to the next checkpoint and seem just as confused about the moment. Eventually, the rover approaches the portal, with the player probably unsure of its fate.
Although the portal does damage to players who touch it, Angel_0136 doesn’t have to worry. Once it is reached, the rover disappears and spits the player out if it does. While this is good news, Call of Duty Zombies fans now know that the bug will fix itself if it occurs in the game. Hopefully it will be officially fixed sooner rather than later. However, the title of the post and many of the comments show that fans are taking the moment and laughing at how strange it is to let off their frustrations with Treyarch.
Given that Treyarch has already resolved several outbreak-related issues while also adding some new content like the sanatorium, it shouldn’t take too long to fix this bug. For now, however, players should be extra careful when facing mimics during the escort phase of an outbreak game.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
