Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 players have found a new, creative way to avoid taking damage from Nomad’s Attack Dog.

The specialist is one of the more annoying abilities in the game due to its powerful nature, especially on smaller maps. Once Nomad sends his Attack Dog on its merry way, there’s little to stop enemies from falling into its jaws and needing a respawn.

However, there have been a few glitches that have helped players. Back in December, Reddit users discovered a glitch that showed how the dog could not deal damage to players who were performing an emote. 


Now, they may have found another way to escape the dog’s deadly clutches.

TreyarchThe newest Black Ops title has been a massive hit for Treyarch.

In a post to the Black Ops 4 subreddit, user Valyntine_ showed off the interesting new method for players – which may or may not be a glitch in the game.

Playing on Firing Range, the player simply went prone to the ground as the Attack Dog was ready to pounce. 

However, with the enemy being on the floor, the specialist ability was unable to claim its regular kill – instead, locked in the animation of attacking but not doing anything. The dog eventually gave in and stopped trying to attack Valyntine_.

This issue may not appear as game-breaking as others in the past, but it does have a negative impact on the use of Nomad’s ability – once again.

The Attack Dog had been criticized for being one of the most overpowered abilities in Black Ops 4 due to the way it had been able to jump to crazy heights to claim kills in games.
