Players Are Confused By Warzone's New Murder Doors

By now, people know that the city of Verdansk in "Call of Duty: Warzone" is a dangerous place. Not only are there always 150 heavily armed opponents running around the place and hunting one another down, but gamers might also find themselves facing cheaters spreading a virus, in the sights of a deadly Grandma, or even running from zombies. However, players may have found the game's most dangerous new foe: locked doors.

An unopenable door hidden in the Salt Mines section of the revamped Verdansk map has begun instantly dealing a killing blow to players. The door's violent reaction to being approached appears equal to some of the most overpowered weapons in the game, ripping through full armor to down players with a single blow. As seen in multiple clips that have been shared online, players in a squad match who interact with these doors simply get downed, meaning their teammates can revive them, but anyone running solo might be advised to steer clear of any strange doors, at least in the Salt Mines.

While the appearance of an indiscriminately murderous door in the game is almost certainly the result of some mixed-up code creating a bug, it did coincide with the arrival of Season 4's new fast-travel Red Doors, leading fans to wonder if the two are somehow related.

Deadly doors and Warzone's new loot rooms

While watching a player get knocked down by a door multiple times is objectively amusing, the glitch coincided with a new feature that has fans curious if there might be a deeper mystery behind that locked door. A brief description in the "Call of Duty: Warzone" Season 4 roadmap introduced the game's new Red Doors, which teleport players to a loot room that could otherwise be clear across the map.

A YouTube clip from Mr Middi shows the streamer walking into one of the glowing new doors he found in the Stadium, which then teleports him straight to the scene of the crime: the Salt Mines. This led Reddit user JoPOWz to theorize that the doors are meant to take players to rooms that can only be opened from the inside, and that the game could be wigging out because people are interacting with the Red Door from the wrong side.

If all of this mysterious portal behavior is connected, then the "Call of Duty: Warzone" murder door might end its reign of terror after a Red Door is activated and instead become an exit point for a loot station. Of course, this is just a theory, and players will most likely try to steer clear of these doors until the developers say otherwise.
