It's not all sunshine and bullets in Caldera, the massive new map introduced with Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 1. In fact, it appears that many players are experiencing severe texture issues and graphical glitches, including the return of the infamous "demon gun".
With over 40 new weapons, Gulag changes, crazy fighter jet skirmishes, gameplay adjustments, new vehicles, and much more, the release of this monumental update is bound to cause issues for some players.
The current Warzone Pacific Season 1 texture/graphics issues, especially on PS4 and PS5, is however making it "unplayable" for some players. Here's what we know so far about the severe issues, including the return of the "demon gun".
Warzone Pacific graphics/texture issues
There are several graphics issues in Warzone Pacific Season 1 right now, from textures not loading in properly to "Artifacting" as Raven Software puts it.
The image above, from Devon Tarrant on Twitter, comes with the perfect caption: "Love Play-Doh Caldera" and it really does look like it, right?
Trees and buildings, or really any high-quality texture don't seem to be loading in properly, over very slowly right now.
Then, there's also the "demon gun" glitch, which for some players reportedly remain for an entire match, forcing them to quit and restart Warzone.
The "demon gun" texture glitch in Warzone Pacific also appears to affect some Vanguard weapons introduced with Season 1.

Raven Software's dedicated Trello Board for Warzone features two cards pertaining to the graphics/texture issues.

While PS4 and PS5 gamers appear to suffer the most, players from all platforms are experiencing at least some texture loading or graphical issues, making "Play-Doh Caldera" not-so-sunny.
