Treyarch has repaid Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Cold War Black Ops players who bought a new rainbow that was released early, and that promises to allow players to progress toward a solution.
On March 18, a package went up for sale that included a plan for the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow. The package was priced at 12000 CoD Points in the Warzone store, which is around £ 10.
The weapon was not mentioned in any patch notes, and was useless Warzone. Players quickly discovered that the weapon was available inside Cold War Black Ops, as a basic version of the weapon was available to solve through challenge.
Players worked towards unraveling the rainbow and then earning a skin camo for it, before Activision pulled the crossbow.
A tweet from the publisher said: “An issue with the R1 Shadowhunter weapon comes to light earlier than planned Warzone and Cold War Black Ops resolved. ”
An issue with the R1 Shadowhunter weapon appearing earlier than planned in Warzone and Black War Cold Ops has been resolved.
A refund is planned for players who purchased the package while it was live in the Store, and the bundle and in-game challenge will return later.

The tweet promised that players would get a refund for the package, but fans were disappointed that they would lose the progress they had been working for.
In a Reddit thread of players dealing with the issue, user Cybranwarrior22 wrote: “Yo what the hell… I was just grinding for the last two hours to get this harmful thing and they just going “whoops, sorry it was too early”. ”
Following feedback from the community Treyarch updated the public face Trello board, and confirmed that Solution progress for players who had set the crossbar at 14/15 matches would be completed.
Players who have won the crossbow and unlock any camo will keep their camo progress when our update is live.
