Game-breaking Loadout Drop glitch is giving Warzone players easy wins

Call of Duty players have uncovered a new Warzone glitch with Loadout Drops, which can make you almost invincible in-game after the latest update.

There are plenty of Buy Stations scattered across Verdansk for players to purchase killstreaks or revive their teammates using the cash they have collected so far in that match.

The high-ticket item from these Buy Stations is the $10,000 Loadout Drop, which lets you and your teammates select any of your custom classes to use in-game.

However, a bizarre bug has been found with this feature after Infinity Ward’s latest update, and it is making some Warzone players essentially unkillable in the late-game stages.

Call of Duty streamer MRKN Stellar highlighted this glitch in one of his latest broadcasts, after making it to the final circles with a loadout drop stored in inventory.

The streamer revealed that the latest Warzone update now prevents these loadout drops from killing your character when it lands on top of them but, as a result, makes it possible to glitch inside them, becoming invincible.

Stellar shared a clip and explained just how devastating this glitch could be, as he and teammate continued to pick up easy kills, even with enemy cluster strikes raining down on their position.

“Yo Infinity Ward you thought this was a good idea?” he asked, suggesting that battle royale devs should consider fixing this bug in a future update.

As this glitch can be extremely frustrating to deal with, particularly in the late game, many others have also called for changes to be made to the Buy Station’s Loadout Drops.

It is unclear if Infinity Ward has any intention of removing this glitch or reverting the changes but they have not shown any sign of doing so on their official Trello board as of yet.

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.
