Prominent Call of Duty leaker ‘TheGamingRevolution’ has shed some light on when fans can expect teasers for CoD: Vietnam to drop, even claiming that Warzone players might see some in-game.

While Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare and Warzone have each been incredibly successful Call of Duty titles, all eyes are looking forward to the next iteration in the franchise.

Tipped to be set in the Cold War era, the next Call of Duty is going to reportedly revolve predominantly around the events from the Vietnam War, and thus will be allegedly titled ‘CoD: Vietnam.’

The Vietnam War was set in the Cold War-era, and has previously played a part in Black Ops’ campaign.

While the vast majority of information relating to the next Call of Duty has come from leaks and ‘insider reports,’ all signs are pointing towards a prequel of some kind that diverges away from the Black Ops universe.

Yet fans have been left in the dark when it comes to all of this information being officially released — that is, up until now. Alongside fellow Call of Duty YouTuber ‘dkdynamite,’ TheGamingRevolution has revealed when teasers for the Vietnam-themed title is set to drop.

According to their sources, the reveal was initially set for April, but has since been pushed back to May 2020, in light of the current global situation.

To top things off, TGR theorized that Warzone players can expect to see some teasers in-game within due course, given the popularity and mass appeal that Infinity Ward’s battle royale has.

Their claims on teaser dates also lineup with a cryptic Tweet that was posted by another prominent leaker ‘LongSensation’ in March, which simply stated “May. 2020.” alongside a GIF of soldiers grounding from choppers on a battlefield.

That’s not all. The pair also claimed that Sledgehammer Games may well be taking the reins on the multiplayer of Call of Duty: 2020, while Treyarch are supposedly chipping away at the campaign and still steering the ship on the project’s development overall.

So despite Treyarch reportedly being at the forefront of its development, its possible that the Vietnam-themed CoD will in fact be credited to SHG.

Of course, everything obtained from the aforementioned leakers is all up for speculation and should be taken with a pinch of salt. Saying that, however, both TGR and LongSensation have a reliable record for accurate leaks. But for now, only time will tell whether these claims hold any substance.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
