A newly discovered exploit in Modern Warfare highlights how players can double up on Care Package drops each and every time they call one in. 

Since the release of Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare on October 25, there has been no shortage of quirky bugs and ridiculous glitches throughout the multiplayer component of the FPS title. 

On November 28, an absurdly efficient exploit has been uncovered that allows players to call in two Care Package streaks while actually only having to earn one. 

Infinity Ward - Modern WarfareThe Care Package is one of the cheapest killstreaks in all of Modern Warfare, requiring only four consecutive eliminations.
 

A post from Reddit user ‘Rumorhaslt’ demonstrated just how the ridiculous exploit can be implemented throughout any game mode across any map.

After having earned a single Care Package killstreak through four consecutive eliminations, an EMP Drone Field Upgrade is surprisingly all that is needed to replicate the lucky-dip streak.

Calling in an EMP Drone directly overhead and then throwing out the Care Package grenade at the right moment, will disable your HUD and provide you with a fresh Care Package to use once more.

While obviously a risky endeavor due to the associated damage that comes from directly absorbing the EMP Drone strike, it would definitely be advisable to find a secluded area before employing the trick.

Being able to double up on the Care Package obviously provides players with much greater odds of securing a top-tier killstreak in the middle of a match. From a VTOL Jet to a Gunship, accessing such devastating streaks without actually having to earn the associated kills is a huge benefit.

There’s no denying just how powerful this exploit can be, especially considering how rapidly the EMP Drone Field Upgrade recharges throughout battle. Players are able to manipulate the Care Package streak essentially every time without fail, making this one of the most powerful bugs in the game to date.

If you’ve never been the type to select the Care Package as one of your three killstreaks when entering any given match, this new exploit won’t do much to change that. However, it’s absolutely crucial to keep in mind when grinding out public matches. If you see an EMP Drone being called in on an obscure location, there’s a good chance that two Care Packages could be up for grabs.

Infinity Ward has been quick to address a number of critical issues since the release of Modern Warfare, so there’s a good chance that this exploit is taken care of before things really get out of hand in public matches.

Twitch star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has got an interesting FFAR loadout for Call of Duty Warzone following the recent nerfs to the DMR and other weapons. 

The meta in Warzone is constantly evolving as Call of Duty fans try and get a leg up on their opposition in any way shape or form. 

Since the launch of Black Ops Cold War, it’s been all about the DMR, Diamatti’s, and MAC-10, but recent nerfs have got players searching for different choices. Some have gone back to the Modern Warfare weapons – the M4, AMAX, and Kilo-141, for example – while others have tried to find answers in Cold War.

The FFAR, which resembles the FAMAS from years past, has been the answer for some. It’s even got NICKMERCS trying it out and dropping a pretty nice loadout.

The FFAR has become of the best guns in Warzone.

The FaZe Clan member unveiled the loadout he’s been using in his January 16 video, noting that, even though its an assault rifle, it might make some of the SMGs obsolete. 

“However, I do think this FFAR could replace a lot of the SMGs,” Nick said. “I think the overall kit is a pretty good kit, and if you want to have some fun, this is a great class to do that.”

The accuracy does take a slight knock in Nick’s setup, however, the FFAR does get a nice little boost to both the range and mobility. It’s not exactly going to be a sniper or a KAR, but for what it is, it’s certainly nice and up there with some of the best weapons around right now. 

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2” Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammo: Salvo 50 round fast mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The YouTuber does note, though, that it’s probably not going to be a class you see streamers running in tournaments. But, for a bit of fun and racking up kills, it’s certainly a nice change of pace. 

Plus, when the time comes and Raven rolls out a few more nerfs, everyone will be searching for the next best thing, and the FFAR should be up there. So, you may as well get used to it, if you’re not already.
