Call of Duty: Warzone’s frustrating infinite Stim glitch is back in the battle royale, despite having been “fixed” multiple times in past seasons. Activision were quick to respond once again though, announcing that the issue has yet again been patched.

Even with Warzone’s monumental popularity, there have been multiple invasive glitches that have threatened to affect the battle royale’s level-playing field. From the demon gun glitch to getting stuck in random textures, Infinity Ward have been quick to respond to any seriously significant bugs.

Another issue, which has reared its head in past seasons, is the infinite Stim Shot glitch. As it sounds, this allows players to use the healing Stim Shot an unlimited number of times, as opposed to the one or two charges players should be able to use.

This obviously skews the balance of play in favor of the Stim Shot owner, who can sit in the toxic gas and endlessly heal themselves. In this way, it can quite simply hand victories to those players abusing it.

The Stim Shot returned in Black Ops Cold War, working in the same way as Modern Warfare and Warzone.

We have seen the Stim Shot issue in previous seasons of Warzone, with Infinity Ward issuing a prompt patch each time.

However, previous patches have not been enough to stop it returning in Season 6. YouTuber MarleyThirteen shared a clip showing an enemy endlessly stimming while on top of one of Verdansk’s buildings.

Despite being deep in the gas, they are able to consistently heal themselves and avoid a late elimination. Needless to say, any opponent who finds themself in a similar situation without a Stim Shot will be swiftly killed.

Players quickly called on Infinity Ward to release a patch given the serious nature of the exploit and how it can quite literally decide the outcome of a Warzone match.

The developers obliged, announcing on November 19 that an issue allowing players to use items infinitely has been fixed.

Only time will tell if the next patch is enough to eradicate this particular exploit for good.

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.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

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.
