Crazy Warzone exploit gives players infinite Underbarrel ammo

A Call of Duty YouTuber has discovered an exploit that grants players infinite Underbarrel ammo in Modern Warfare’s Warzone battle royale.

While Modern Warfare has been full to the brim with exploits in its multiplayer, they have been few and far between in Verdansk.

Aside from players being able to develop invincibility after buying back their allies in the final circle, there is little in the way of nifty tricks that bend the rules and allow players to get one up on their opponents.

Players are granted invincibility from Verdansk’s menacing gas when they respawn in the final circle.

While there have been numerous problems (such as the infamous Ghost perk issues) that have affected Warzone gameplay negatively, this trick actually works in players’ favor.

Essentially, players need to equip an Underbarrel launcher of their choice to a weapon in their Custom Loadout, and then equip this class by using a loadout drop in-game.

Then, players simply need to swap between an item on the ground and their weapon to refresh their Underbarrel ammo, as Acez Gaming demonstrates in their video.

Segment starts at 2:45 for mobile users.

 

The crux of the exploit comes due to the fact that (as it currently stands), a player’s baseline Underbarrel magazine is replenished each time they drop their weapon and pick it back up.

This isn’t the case for normal weapons’ ammunition stacks, as a player carries them separately to the weapon — meaning a player’s regular ammo is dictated by what stocks they have on their person.

Given the plethora of Underbarrel attachments available, there are multiple ways that you can benefit from having unlimited Underbarrel ammo, with everything from Flashbangs to Snapshot grenades.

From highly explosive ordnance to a 12-Gauge shotgun, you can customize your Underbarrel attachment to suit your needs.

As Acez showed in the clip, the exploit is perfect for providing coverage if your teammates are stuck out in the open, as you can deploy multiple smokes at once and create the perfect blanket coverage to facilitate a quick getaway.

Or if you’re holding the top of a building like a fortress, perhaps you could Overkill two weapons with Underbarrel… One with Snapshot rounds for intel, and another with highly explosive rounds to wreak havoc from above.

Warzone players claim Nuketown Gulag gives unfair advantage to one side

A handful of Call of Duty Warzone players have hit out at the new Nuketown-themed Gulag, claiming it favors one side a bit too much. 

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Warzone has now combined the weapons of both the new game as well as the previous Modern Warfare title.

Even though there’s plenty of new content, including weapons and the Rebirth Island map, but it hasn’t gone down well with every player. There are still complaints about weapons being too overpowered, attachments not working, as well as other general bugs that come from combining the two games. 

Additionally, there’s also a new Gulag – with the showers of the Verdansk prison being done away with, and being replaced by a smaller version of Nuketown. However, players have got complaints about that too.

Players believe that Gulag fights have never been this tricky to win.

With the Modern Warfare showers, players had the same angles on each side, but that’s now changed with Nuketown. It’s now asymmetrical, with more angles to look out for, and Warzone players believe it favors the side where you can shoot through what would be the Welcome to Nuketown sign. 

“40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins,” posted Redditor SamirDando, complaining about the head glitch the car gives players who spawn that side. “That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

Others agreed, adding: “Yeah can’t stand it. The damn car head glitch” and offering up possible changes. “Remove the car, change the plywood to concrete so it can’t be shot through and it’d be alright,” said another.

Yet, one player pointed out that it’s not just the head glitch that’s the problem, but how much room you have to work with. 

“In my opinion, the problem with car spawn isn’t just the head glitch, but also the fact that you can see two lanes from spawn,” noted Reddit user ReADropOfGoldenSun, “I think this could all be fixed if they moved the cardboard just a bit over so you can’t see the middle right off spawn.”

Other players, however, didn’t agree at all, claiming that are easy ways to get around the campers – either by simply hopping up on the balconies on the houses or using grenades.

It seems unlikely that the devs would make major changes to the gulag, unless their data shows that it’s completely broken and ruining the game. That might happen at a later date, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
