Fall damage can put a sudden end to any Warzone run, but there’s a simple trick you can use to avoid an unnecessary downfall.

There’s no more embarrassing way to go out than to die to your own mistakes in Warzone. Whether that’s crashing a vehicle or cooking a grenade for too long, we’ve all had our fair share of fumbles.

Dying to fall damage is one such mistake that could just ruin your match. If you’re worried about your parachute not opening, or need to make a quick escape, here’s a trick to avoid fall damage completely.

Opening your parachute can make you an easy target. Here’s how to avoid it.

How to avoid fall damage in Warzone

Rather than scaling damage depending on your height, Infinity Ward’s battle royale simply has a cut-off. Jumping from a certain elevation will outright kill you, or leave you unscathed.

Drop from up to 13 meters off the ground and you’ll be just fine. However, anything 14 meters or higher and you’ll be downed upon landing. How can you gauge this height in the heat of the moment? A single ping from Warzone’s in-game system will do the trick.

Warzone’s ping system could save your life

Opening your parachute as you drop to the ground can make you an easy target. Not only that, but it also puts away your guns, preventing you from shooting back. 


If you’re looking to get out of trouble in a jiffy, pinging the ground below can help. A quick glimpse at the height of the fall and you’ll know if it’s safe to drop.

Given the size of Verdansk, buildings come in all shapes and sizes. At times it can be difficult to know exactly what kind of fall might kill you. Thanks to this simple trick, that moment of hesitation can now be avoided.
