Call of Duty: Warzone is no stranger to game breaking exploits. From the infinite stim glitch to the various areas you can clip into, glitches are commonplace. But developer Raven Software has at least patched out one of the battle royale’s biggest exploits. As of today, the Warzone gas mask glitch no longer works.
The gas mask is a purchasable item. When equipped it prevents a player taking damage from the gas. It lasts a total of ten seconds before breaking, causing players to once again take damage from the gas. However, the gas mask glitch made it so that it was possible to extend the duration of the gas mask indefinitely.
There’s work to be done
The gas mask glitch has been one of the biggest causes of player frustration in Warzone over the last month or so. Because it made gas masks indestructible, team’s exploiting it could spend the whole game outside of the zone. This effectively made them invincible as opposing teams couldn’t get close enough to down them.
Now that the gas mask glitch is patched Activision’s hit battle royale should be easier to enjoy. However, there are still other major exploits that need to dealt with. Currently, the exploit plaguing Warzone the most is no clipping.
No clipping is when a player manages to pass through a wall. By no clipping it is possible to reach areas of the map that provide massive advantages over your opposition. Some areas that it is possible to clip into allow you to see enemies through walls even though they cannot see you.
The good news is that Activision has recently confirmed that it is expanding the Warzone dev team. Hopefully, more staff working on Warzone will reduce the likelihood of exploits like the gas mask glitch appearing in the future.
Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software has today unveiled its latest set of changes. This patch looks to address the battle royale’s biggest problems. Amongst these includes a nerf to the infamous Roze skin, a commonly used operator in Warzone.
Roze is a popular choice as her armour in this skin was completely black all over. This made it an excellent choice for hiding in shadows or difficult to spot locations. Many players found this skin frustrating and, in some cases, even unfair. It was unlockable last year before the Cold War integration so many players can’t even use it.
A Significant balance patch
Alongside the Roze changes Raven has also confirmed certain Warzone guns will be receiving nerfs. Those listed include the M16, AUG, FFAR 1, and Sykov. The inclusion of the Sykov is particularly interesting as it was only added a few days ago.
Furthermore, Raven Software is planning to use this opportunity to fix some crucial bugs. Amongst these includes a current bug that prevents the Variable Zoom scope from producing sniper glint. Sniper glint is a mechanic that gives away a sniper’s location when scoped in. However, by using this attachment you can bypass this mechanic.
The other major bug fix is focused on the Modern Warfare weapon perks. A couple of patches ago many of these became broken in both Warzone and Modern Warfare. An example of this is the Sleight of Hand perk no longer speeding up reload time.
Finally, the RC-XC killstreak is going to reworked so that you cannot acquire it through a Buy Station. This may not be as exciting to Warzone players as the Roze skin nerfs, but it’s a nice change nonetheless. Many players weren’t happy with how the RC-XC had taken the loadouts spot on the Buy Station. This change resulted in players accidentally purchasing the killstreak when trying to obtain a loadout.
