Modern Warfare players are finally discovering a clever bomb feature in the new Cyber Attack game mode that has been hidden in plain sight this entire time.

The Cyber Attack mode is a completely new one to the Call of Duty franchise with Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward’s first entry into the series since 2017’s Infinite Warfare.

It is very similar to Search and Destroy, in that it involves planting a bomb and that you can’t just respawn when killed, but if you get killed your teammates can come and revive you, meaning you’re never really out until the round is over.

Cyber Attack made its Call of Duty debut with Modern Warfare in October 2019.

Of course, as the game mode is so new, many players have spent months now figuring out the best way to play it, but some are only just discovering that the bomb has a feature that makes the game significantly easier.

Usually, when holding the bomb, you just run to the bomb site and attempt to plant it, hoping your teammates can do enough to defend the site after you’ve got it down.

However, Sakar911 on Reddit realized that the bomb itself actually has a UAV and Heartbeat Sensor built into it – and loads of players discovered that they have somehow missed this feature for so long.

Obviously many players had already discovered it, but it definitely isn’t common knowledge, as evidenced by the responses to the Reddit post.

The most upvoted response was simply somebody saying that they’re “going to try it out,” showing that many people had no clue and want to give it a go in-game, while another commenter simply said that they “hate [themselves] for not knowing this.”

If you’ve been playing Cyber Attack and wondering how people know your location, despite the fact you think you’re being super stealthy, this might just be the reason, so make sure you take advantage of it when you’ve got the bomb too.

The Elite Gamer series will wrap up on October 27 with the $25,000 Pro-Am Championship tournament, which will feature “celebrities, professional athletes, musicians, and top CDL players,” according to the team.

$15,000 will go to the first-place duo, $5,000 to second place, and the remaining $5,000 will be donated to The Call of Duty Endowment – a non-profit organization that seeks to help veterans find high-quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value veterans bring to the workplace.

Several players have already been confirmed, including Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren and Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – popular streamers who have already won several high-profile Warzone competitions. The full list of participants will likely get revealed at some point ahead of the main event.
