This simple Warzone trick gives Call of Duty players more of a chance to survive after being caught in the collapsing circle’s gas.

With all of the threats in popular battle royale game – such as enemy players, vehicles, and killstreaks – it can be easy to disregard the fatal gas closing in behind you.

As many players often forget about it until it’s too late, here’s a simple trick that can help you deal with the collapsing circle and get you back in the safe zone faster.

Warzone’s collapsing circle can deal fatal damage to players that are caught in it for too long.

A common strategy in BR titles is to remain at the edge of the safe zone as the circle closes to minimize conflict and earn a high placement.

However, this can lead to players trapping themselves in buildings or simply being too slow at times, cutting their run short by dying to the toxic fumes.

One player, u/AdamMurphy24, has shared a quick tip on the subreddit for Call of Duty Warzone, informing others on how they could escape the gas quicker when caught in such situations.

He highlighted that one of the secret changes in Warzone’s April 28 update now allows players to drop their weapons and revealed that the new feature could help those who are trapped outside of the safe zone.

For those unsure how to drop your weapon, simply open up your inventory as if you were dropping bullets or Armor Plates, scroll over to the gun you want to get rid off, and press ‘X’ on Xbox One, ‘Square’ on PS4, or ‘Tab’ on PC. The weapon will immediately fall to the ground, and you’ll be able to zoom away from the gas at maximum speed.

As running with fists out is significantly faster than with some of Warzone’s go-to weapons, such as the Grau or the M4A1, it can be worth it to ditch one of your guns for a better chance at survival.

“If you’re ever caught by the incoming gas line and it’s really life or death, drop one of your two guns,” Adam explained. “Running with fists out is full movement speed.”

While this simple tactic can potentially put you at a disadvantage in later fights, it is still better than being sent straight to the Gulag or back to the queue, at least giving you a chance at winning some tough matches.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
