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.

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.

Whether you have years of Call of Duty experience or you’re just starting out with Modern Warfare, there are plenty of nuances for everyone to master in the battle royale, even long after the title first launched.

A simple trick like this could quickly become second nature as you hunt down your next win in Warzone.

The reigning Call of Duty League Champions, Dallas Empire have signed 23-year-old veteran Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson as their first substitute for the upcoming 2021 campaign.

FeLo is set to join the Empire as a substitute player after playing for Triumph. A specialist in Search & Destroy, he’s expected to bolster the team’s prowess in the stringent game type now that the league is moving to a 4v4 format.

“Bringing FeLo to the team was a natural move for us as we prepare to repeat our championship run from the League’s first season,” Empire’s Head Coach Ray ‘Rambo’ Lussier said. “He’s a world-class Search & Destroy player and helped us prepare for the Grand Finals last year, so we’re expecting great things from him.”

Years ago, FeLo made a name for himself online as one of the best S&D players, and the Team Envy-owned org is relying on him to bring a new type of heat to Dallas’ heavy-hitting squad.

“Blessed to be a part of such a great organization, going to help the boys in any way I can this year,” FeLo said of the announcement. “Thank you guys for all the love.”

During the 2020 North American Challengers Final, Triumph managed to claim the top prize of $50,000 while only dropping one map of S&D during their playoff run to first place.

While the Empire had one of the strongest overall offenses in the CDL last year, their Search & Destroy was a glaring point in their game that would look shaky against the best in the league.

By signing FeLo, Empire gives themselves some flexibility to switch out Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland or Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter for someone that has a wealth of experience navigating S&D.

The CDL 2020 champs just got stronger by adding S&D specialist FeLo.

Even after departing with James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks due to the new Black Ops Cold War format, the Empire’s starting roster has to be considered among the strongest in the league.

Now Rambo will have to find the best ways to maneuver his five-man squad when going up against tough competitors like Atlanta FaZe, OpTic Chicago, and more.

FeLo has signed with Dallas Empire, but the move is pending league approval.

Dallas Empire’s 2021 CDL Roster:

  • Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro
  • Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland
  • Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal
  • Ian ‘C6’ Porter
  • Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson (Substitute)
