McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris returned to Verdansk after three back-to-back races — and joined up with YouTube streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop to try out the worst possible Warzone loadouts.

While most content creators look for the most overpowered weapons that can change the meta, such as NICKMERCS’ M13 or Vikkstar’s Bruen MK9, this duo, alongside Marcel ‘BasicallyIDoWrk’ Cunningham and NoahJ456, obviously had something else on their minds.

They took to Verdansk looking to prove a point by arming themselves with the world’s worst Warzone loadouts, and it made for some interesting viewing.

Norris has been seeing some success transferring his skills to Warzone and the streaming world.

CouRage opted for what he believed was the worst-in-class assault rifle, the AK47, due to its insane recoil, and decided to make the recoil even worse. Pair that with a VLK Rogue shotgun Blueprint with minimal range and you’ve got a match made in hell.

Lando initially didn’t even know the names of what he was using, which really speaks for itself, but he did know that he had the Origin 12 Shotgun and a revolver, effectively making him useless at almost all ranges.

The issue with each of their respective weapons became abundantly clear almost immediately, as Jack tested out his AK’s recoil and was visibly shocked at how much it jumped, spending the rest of the video treating it more like a Dragunov than an AR.

Meanwhile, teammates NoahJ and Marcel had their own issues to deal with. Marcel was using the Code Breaker FR5.56 Blueprint with a smokescreen underbarrel, while Noah opted to exclusively use weapons that don’t shoot bullets; a crossbow and “a shotgun that shoots fire” — and it didn’t make for easy plays in Verdansk.

It took a few games, and it wasn’t pretty, but the squad did finally manage to get a win, albeit without the high number of kills they would usually expect. Noah managed to nab himself 12, but CouRage, Marcel and Lando got 4, 4 and3 respectively: not quite something to write home about.

It goes without saying that these guys won’t be opting to utilize these Warzone loadouts in real games, and as they’re playing, you can definitely see why.

Whether they’re the worst possible Warzone loadouts isn’t clear, but nobody else is going to be rushing to use these classes any time soon.

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.
