Modern Warfare grenade trick revives players in the blink of an eye

Grenades aren’t quite working as intended throughout various modes in Modern Warfare as a new trick surprisingly allows players to revive themselves.

Grenades are obviously intended to detonate on top of opposing forces and secure a quick elimination or two. Prevalent in every loadout, players are able to choose between all sorts of explosives. From sticky semtex grenades to frag, not a single item in the ‘lethal’ category is intended to help the opponents.

However, a new trick has been uncovered that goes against the grain and, shockingly, benefits your enemies if timed just right.

Infinity Ward - Modern WarfareReviving players in Modern Warfare is only possible throughout Cyber Attack and Special Ops.

Throwing grenades back towards their sender is an entirely viable play in Call of Duty. There’s a limited window that allows players to pick the explosive back up and launch it away before the detonation impacts everyone nearby. 

Amusingly enough, players are actually able to return grenades while in a downed-state as well. Better yet, in doing so, players somehow get themselves off the ground in a heartbeat. 

Completely neglecting the need for a revive from a nearby teammate, this odd feature gets you back on your feet in an instant if timed just right.

While obviously a niche tactic that will only come in handy throughout Cyber Attack and Special Ops, there’s no denying how powerful the trick can be in certain situations.

Whether you’re one round away from winning a closely contested game of Cyber Attack, or your squad is just moments out from completing a difficult Special Ops challenge, all hope might not be lost if you get downed in combat.

There’s no way to predict when enemy AI might throw a grenade your way and multiplayer opposition might cook their grenades to perfection, so it can be a difficult tactic to fall back on, but the option is always there nonetheless. 

Infinity Ward - Modern WarfareSpecial Ops provides a unique cooperative challenge in Modern Warfare.

While Cyber Attack is an entirely new mode in Modern Warfare, Special Ops is a returning cooperative feature from Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 (2009).

Despite being reintroduced to the series for the first time since 2011, dedicated players were quick to voice their frustrations with the buggy state of the mode at launch. Adding to the list, this grenade bug is certainly not working as intended but it might just save your life before being patched out.

How to get .50 GS pistol in Call of Duty Mobile

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.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

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.
