Warzone devs address glitch allowing players to stay in gas permanently

Infinity Ward has rolled out an update to address an exploit in Call of Duty: Warzone that allowed players to constantly combat the gas ring and revive their downed teammates. 

After weeks of hints, teases, and hype, Call of Duty: Warzone was finally released on March 10 to the delight of fans. Since then, over six million players have dropped onto the Verdansk map for at least one game of the battle royale – with the mode soaring to the top of the charts on Twitch. 

However, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for the developers in the days since the release. Players have noted issues with warning messages affecting their drops and gas masks preventing them from winning fights. Yet, one of the biggest of them all revolved around players going down in the gas ring and being revived by their teammates – with them rotating revives until they returned to the safe zone.

Call of Duty: Warzone has been an immediate hit – but there are a few lingering issues.

After plenty of complaints about this exploit, the developers have moved to address it pretty quickly so that it doesn’t become a tactic in-game anymore.

On March 12, they confirmed that a playlist update was being rolled out in order to combat the exploit – though there wasn’t an explanation as to what was being changed. That was left for players to discover in-game.

Anyone who has since tried the rotating revives method while going down in the gas ring will have noted that their health bar, upon returning, does not regenerate to full capacity anymore.

Instead, players who now go down to the gas ring and are revived with come back with around a quarter of their health bar. This makes it pretty difficult to revive teammates while in the gas – especially if it is doing damage at a considerable rate.

Even though it may appear to be a fix now, changes could still change down the line should Infinity Ward want to balance things further.

It remains to be seen as to whether or not that will be the case but, for now at least, there will be no more rotating revives in Call of Duty: Warzone.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
