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.

The Juggernaut has been a controversial drop since its introduction into Call of Duty: Warzone, and the vast majority of players are now calling on the developers to remove it.

Juggernaut suits in Warzone are annoying for obvious reasons: they can withstand almost endless damage and are gifted a deadly minigun. Although maybe a fun gimmick at first, players are now getting tired of it taking over the battle royale.

Players have been venting their frustrations about it for a while now, but there has been no development in the Juggernaut controversy. So, when we asked dedicated Call of Duty fans’ opinions on the Juggernaut’s potential removal, the response was resounding.

What they’re saying is pretty unanimous: remove the Juggenaut from Warzone.

Warzone players want Juggernaut removed

Our original question was straightforward: “Should the Juggernaut be removed from Warzone?”

The response is also pretty straightforward: yes. However, fans had a lot of things to say in their own creative ways, so we’ve collated some of the best responses here.

One fan actively questioned why the dev team ever decided to include the drop in the first place because of how overpowered it is, referring to it as “one of the most stupidly OP thing left in Warzone”.

Another fan also referred to having the Juggernaut as being “game over” for whoever does not have access to the suit.

This was quickly echoes by another player who states that it “completely breaks the game”, which is hardly what developers want to hear.

Finally, using their own experience another fan vented about a situation that seems to be constantly reoccurring throughout the comments: that playing against the Juggernaut in any situation is unplayable.

Warzone’s developers have largely been very receptive to fan criticism, however, when it comes to this there’s been very little development over the past few months. Maybe if fans keep pushing something will change.

Warzone is being integrated into the newest Call of Duty release, Black Ops Cold War, alongside the game’s first season in December. Perhaps then, some sweeping changes will be made – and the hated Jugg will be removed for good.
