CoD pros set insane Warzone Quads world record for most kills

One skilled group of CoD players have absolutely smashed the Warzone squads kill record, hitting an incredible milestone for kills in one single match. 

On April 8, Call of Duty: Warzone added four-player squads alongside Modern Warfare’s Season 3 update. This led to a new category in which world records can be set, and one team has set the bar unbelievably high. 

Mark ‘Zepa’ Zepackic is an Australian CoD professional, who currently plies his trade on Oceanic organization Mindfreak. He is already known in the Warzone community for having a hand in the Trios world record, and has now pulled off an equally impressive squads performance.

On April 10, Zepa shared a screenshot from a recent Warzone match, showing that he and three teammates put up an incredible 100 kills between them.

The insane number of kills was put up thanks to a combined effort between multiple professional OCE players. Zepa himself dropped 29 kills and nearly 10,000 damage, the highest on the team.

Giancarlo ‘Nimble’ Vagnini, also a pro for Mindfreak, recorded an insane 25 kills, while Lymax put up an insane 32 kills. The squad’s effort was rounded off by another competitive player, micka, who put up 14 kills to take the total to three figures. 

With squads only added two days prior to the record being set, we can expect to see some stark competition emerge.

It’s important to remember that, given Warzone’s Gulag respawn system and the ability to buy dead teammates back, the same player can die multiple times in one match. This probably goes some way to explain how the team managed 100 kills in a game mode with 152 total players. 

Regardless, this should not detract from the insane achievement demonstrated by the Australian pros. You can check out all the current Warzone kill records right here.

Black Ops Cold War is reportedly bricking PS5s

Call of Duty players may want to avoid playing Black Ops Cold War on their next-gen PlayStation 5s as reports are surfacing that the game is bricking consoles.

While the latest entry in the long-running CoD series had been met with praise, there have been some notable issues with the game, especially when it pertains to new hardware.

Aside from the issues players may be having with maps such as Miami or camo challenges the community deems unfair, there is a major problem with the game breaking PS5s.

In a now-viral post on Reddit, one user described their experience with the FPS and how it damaged their system.

You can’t play Nuketown if your console is bricked.

“Game has hard crashed the entire console, only game that had been crashing for me on the PS5,” WillHar270 wrote. “Now when I turn it on none of my games will load without crashing and when games do start to load up the screen fills up with flickering and glitching pixels before the console goes dead.”

“If Cold War is crashing your PS5, DO NOT PLAY IT, it will damage your system, in particular for me my GPU,” they further warned.

According to the gamer, after trying everything from a factory reset to even installing system software off a USB drive, nothing worked to fix the console.

Luckily, after contacting Sony, the company reportedly explained that this issue has been happening for others, always with BOCW serving as the lone culprit. As such, the player was able to send their PS5 back and will receive a replacement in a fortnight.

It’s unclear what exactly is causing the issue or if Activision or Sony is to blame, but it should be noted that bricking isn’t limited to just PS5s.

As Dexerto previously reported, Cold War was also causing Xbox Series X bricking problems, which were addressed by the devs.

Dreams of playing next-gen consoles are going up in flames.

“We’re investigating all crashes and across the game,” Treyarch community manager Josh ‘FoxhoundFPS’ Torres claimed. However, no further update was made.

Hopefully, a patch is released soon that can prevent these fatal crashes from occurring so players can enjoy the game without worrying about their console bricking.
