Insane Warzone breakdown reveals just how far missiles can travel

If you’ve ever been curious as to how far missiles can travel in Warzone, this handy breakdown reveals the absurd lengths that you can fire from.

Long-distance shots are always an impressive feat in Warzone. Whether you’re controlling your bursts with an Assault Rifle or perfectly assessing bullet drop with a Sniper. It takes an expert aim to line things up and the same logic applies to explosives as well.

Although they might not seem like the most effective secondary weapons in the game, Launchers can be surprisingly powerful. A single missile from afar can wipe out an unsuspecting squad if your shot is on point. 

But just how far can you truly fire from? If you’re looking to make the next viral clip or simply impress your squad with an absurd longshot, this breakdown from ‘DefendTheHouse’ is exactly what you need.

Launchers can be surprisingly effective, even from across the map.

The popular ‘mythbusting’ gamers started out by testing the classic RPG-7. This weapon isn’t exactly intended for long-distance impact like some of the others. It’s a free-firing Launcher meaning that it won’t be able to lock onto a UAV in the sky, for instance. As a result, it clocks in with the shortest reach of any Launcher at just 265 meters. Once the projectile hits that distance, it will instantly explode without needing to touch a surface.

Next up was the Strela-P Launcher. This is another free-firing weapon but is capable of launching projectiles much faster than the RPG-7. After a few tests at a closer range, the duo put over 600 meters between them, a considerable jump from the RPG-7’s range.

As long as you’re aiming more up than usual, this Launcher can shoot explosives ridiculously far. It reaches roughly 1000 meters before detonating. This means that you can technically shoot from the rooftop of Stadium and miraculously find a kill over at the Prison.

PILA was the next Launcher put under the microscope and it worked to a similar effect from afar. This weapon is also capable of reaching an extreme distance of 1000 meters, but it does so much slower than the Strela-P Launcher. “It just moves really slowly and doesn’t seem to drop at all,” a tester explained.

If you’re looking for impressive long-range kills, you have two solid options with their own pros and cons. The Strela-P Launcher will get to the target quicker, but you’ll need the perfect height prediction when firing. Meanwhile, the PILA Launcher is extremely slow but comes with near pinpoint accuracy.

Long-range shots certainly won’t help win you a game anytime soon, but a 1000 meter team kill is sure to set the Warzone community ablaze.

Loadout Drops are ruining Warzone matches thanks to bizarre glitch

Loadout Drops can now be added to the list of potential threats in Warzone, as unlucky Call of Duty players still grinding the battle royale have been hit with a new game-breaking bug that makes it impossible to win.

Infinity Ward’s hugely popular battle royale is into its sixth season now. Despite plenty of iteration and tons of updates since launch, new bugs continue to pop up. The latest will have you questioning every Loadout Drop until a fix is deployed.

Loadout Drops are absolutely vital in Warzone. It’s the only way to secure the most powerful weapons in the game and kit your Operator out with some important perks. However, it turns out they also have some critical downsides in the latest update.

Rather than grabbing a set of weapons and being on your way, there’s a chance that Loadout Drops now ruin your match. Here’s what you need to be cautious of.

Be careful where you call your Loadout Drops in and how quickly you access them.

While running through a game on October 25, Reddit user ‘tharimrattler’ was thrown off guard by a Loadout Drop. To begin with, it landed in a rather awkward spot atop a street sign. Though what followed was far more awkward.

The player selected their Loadout almost instantly once the menu appeared. They were likely spamming the select button straight away as they had their favorite setup as the top class option. Unfortunately, choosing the Loadout this fast came with some complications. The progress bar for ‘Capturing’ the crate remained on screen.

No matter what they did, how far they moved from the drop, or what buttons they pressed, this bar stayed in effect. While that may not seem like a huge deal, this is what prevented them from shooting, swapping weapons, and using any form of equipment. For the rest of the game, they were quite literally defenseless.

Plenty of other players chimed in, adding they’ve also encountered the strange bug. It’s clearly not a one-off issue but there’s no telling how common it is just yet. You’ll need to be extra careful when interacting with Supply Drops until next update.

If you get hit with this particular glitch, there’s no proper way to deal with it.

Other issues can be fought through but for the Loadout Drop bug, it more or less means game over. If you’re downed, there’s a chance you might regain control in the Gulag. Though even that could seriously hinder if not ruin your run.

Infinity Ward is yet to comment on the issue but something this severe will likely be an immediate priority. Keep your eyes peeled for updates over the next few days.
