Warzone’s Gulag serves as a way for players to earn their spot back in the battle royale with a high-pressure 1v1 battle, but one Modern Warfare player has discovered spectators can get involved in a big way too. 

Since Infinity Ward released its battle royale, Call of Duty players have been sinking their teeth into the enormous, free-to-play title and figuring out new elements with each session.

From the best perks, to the best landing spots, there’s plenty of knowledge to gain in order to get an edge over everyone in your lobby. One fascinating tidbit, is that players are actually able to get kills while spectating in the Gulag. Not just one, but both competitors can be wiped out thanks to this explosive tactic.

While waiting for your 1v1 to start up, the game allows you to throw some haymakers at nearby enemies and also pelt a few rocks. Both of which deal completely insignificant damage and are more so meant as a form of distraction above all else.

Amusingly enough, the projectiles deal a single hit-point of damage, similar to the direct impact of a stun grenade. As a result, players have been able to take down one of the two competitors. Ramping things up a notch, a newly discovered trick allows these rocks to take down both rivals midway through their 1v1.

If the battling duo happen to spawn in with Trip Mines as their lethal equipment, the explosives are able to be triggered with a well-placed throw from spectators waiting in the wings.

As the Gulag often provides players with a sidearm or a shotgun, gunfights typically end up in a close-range scenario. With enemies aiming to take one another out in close-proximity, the explosive radius of the Trip Mine is able to hit both players.

“What the f***,” Reddit user ‘burek_with_yoghurt’ said before laughing at their explosive double kill in the Gulag.

Confused as to how such a scenario would play out, ‘DxtersLab’ shared some insight and explained how “neither” of the killed players make it back into the match.

Likely scratching their heads after being kicked from the game seemingly from nowhere, both players were made aware of just how lethal Trip Mines can actually be.

While Frag and Semtex Grenades are fair play, the next time that you spawn into a 1v1 with Trip Mines equipped, deploy them at your own risk. Cheeky spectators could wipe you out in an instant.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
