How to stop annoying Gas Mask animation in Call of Duty Warzone

The Gas Mask in Call of Duty: Warzone is notorious for its annoying animation that occurs every time the character puts it on. Some players, like prominent FaZe Clan YouTuber Pamaj, have found a clever workaround.

One of the most valuable things you can find in Warzone is the Gas Mask, which basically grants you immunity to the enclosing circle of suffocating gar around you. This can be extremely helpful if you’re falling behind the circle’s edge or if you spot some useful gear outside of the safe zone and want to grab it real quick.

While it’s certainly a useful tool, the item also has its downsides, chief of which is the frustrating animation that takes place when your Operator puts it on and takes it off.

While this may not seem like a problem at first glance, the motion automatically starts every time you come into contact with the gas, so if you’re skirting around the edge trying to pick off straggling enemies, your character can be left vulnerable during those sequences.

The Gas Mask in Warzone allows players to survive in the approaching gas circle for a few minutes.

Luckily, players have found a clever way to avoid this issue, and the secret lies with the Heartbeat Sensor.

The idea is to pull out the Heartbeat Sensor before you enter the gas and/or exit it; as long as you have the device out and operating, your Operator will not do the Gas Mask animation but still have the benefit of its protection.

Here’s popular CoD content creator Pamaj’s tweet showing this technique in action:

And that’s it! It’s unknown whether or not this is a bug in the game or a feature, but right now, it’s the only thing that effectively works against the Gas Mask’s annoying function.

It’s ironic that the solution involved the Heartbeat Sensor since it’s already such a powerful and overused device in Warzone that this is only an extra benefit of having it in every one of your loadouts.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
