How to survive longer in Warzone gas with easy self-revive trick

Call of Duty: Warzone players have uncovered a neat trick that can help you against taking damage from the gas provided you have a self-revive kit handy. 

Like every other battle royale on the market, Call of Duty: Warzone players are pushed inwards from the outer reaches of the map by a moving gas zone. Getting caught in the gas, like other games, can prove pretty fatal – if you haven’t got a gas mask handy, that is.

Standing in the gas obviously won’t lead an instant death, but it can severely hamper your chances of getting a win – say if someone is guarding the edge of the zone and decides to shoot a few bullets at you while you have low health. However, players have uncovered a pretty clever trick that allows them to slow down the damage taken via the gas.

The gas is pretty deadly in Warzone.

The trick was posted to Reddit by user Unknow_Gamer, showing that as soon as you use a self-revive kit while in the gas, your health will not tick down below its previous state.

Instead, using the kit will put a temporary pause on the damage – provided that you stay on the ground and don’t actually complete the self-revive. This trick allowed Unknow_Gamer to seemingly bamboozle the enemy players who had been searching for them, as they just laid on the ground and kept pausing damage by using the self-revive kit.

TIP: Your health goes down slower in the gas if you use self revive! from CODWarzone

Of course, some players might argue that this tactic is actually pretty overpowered and that, similarly to games like Apex Legends and Fortnite, you should take damage while healing or reviving in the gas. 

Whether or not Infinity Ward intended for the self-revive kit to work in this way is unknown, but if it is some sort of exploit or bug, they’ll probably have to address it at some point in the near future. Until then, we’ll just have to wait and see what they do.

For Call of Duty players looking to enjoy the Black Ops Cold War Beta on PC, Treyarch and Activision have revealed the minimum and recommended computer system specs in order to run the game without issues.

After the highly-anticipated Black Ops Cold War Beta made its debut exclusively for PS4, Treyarch are opening up the testing period to players on all platforms for the second week.

This means that those who pre-ordered a digital version of the game on PC will get to try it out starting October 15, before the Beta is opened to all players on October 17.

Unlike consoles, of course, BOCW running on a computer isn’t a guaranteed thing – whether the file will work and/or run smoothly often depends on how good the PC’s specs are, and if they meet the minimum or recommended requirements.
