Unbreakable gas masks are ruining Warzone as devs are trying to fix it

Call of Duty players are finding the unbreakable gas mask glitch once again in Warzone, as the bug that had once been subsided has made an unwelcome return.

As Infinity Ward contest with some of the biggest problems in their popular battle royale, like the ‘demon gun’ glitch, others are dealing with a more annoying headache when taking fights in the middle of Warzone’s gas.

Unlike other battle royales, Warzone has a system that lets players momentarily withstand the damaging effects of its outer ring while wearing a gas mask. These masks aren’t made to last, but as some have already shown, that hasn’t always been the case.

Not to be confused with the Durable Gas Masks that secretly came in the Season 5 update, these glitched items have been around for a while and even the devs previously recognized the issue but have still yet to come up with a fix.

The unbreakable gas mask glitch is making a return in Warzone.

But, despite being patched, the glitch is now back into the spotlight and has been popping up in more games, like when Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow’s got eliminated by someone deep in the gas.

The kill-cam revealed the enemy player had a regular gas mask with the typical indication that it was glitched. The item’s gauge was showing that it was already completely spent, but the player was harmlessly navigating the next fight outside of the circle.

This obviously can change the outcome of entire matches, as instead of having to scurry back into the zone once their mask hits 0 health, people are being able to just hang around in the gas and eliminated unsuspecting opponents.

The glitched masks are just players working with what they loot off the ground, so it’s not a hack or something players can knowingly exploit, but it does pose a big issue for Warzone’s competitive integrity.

This is just another one in a long list of bugs and glitches that are currently making the popular battle royale unplayable, on top of the aforementioned visual issue with weapons looking horribly distorted.

A fix for the glitch is still labeled as ‘in progress’ and it’s something that the Warzone community will be eager to see resolved sooner than later.

NICKMERCS creates deadly RAM-7 Warzone loadout for all ranges

Twitch and YouTube star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has shown off his pretty interesting Ram-7 loadout for Warzone as players have started experimenting with different weapons. 

Ever since Warzone released, players have constantly fiddled around with their loadouts to try and get something that works for their playstyle but also keeps up with the ever-changing meta. 

With the switch to Black Ops Cold War, the meta has somewhat shifted away from the original weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but some players have been going back to them – especially in terms of the assault rifles. 

We’ve seen new classes for the M4, the Kilo 141, as well as Amax CR-56, but now NICKMERCS has been trying out the Ram-7 again, and he’s got a pretty spicy class.

The RAM-7 can be tough to control without the right attachments.

As Nick notes, the Ram-7 was, at one point, the strongest assault rifle in Warzone but updates saw it displaced by others. Yet, it’s still pretty nice in terms of the damage it deals and not being incredibly slow to carry. 

“It’s a very, very strong assault rifle, but it’s kind of hard to control the recoil at distance,” Nick said. “I’ll be honest man, I had never used the Ram-7 ironsight in Warzone… this things slaps.”

With his setup, Nick has boosted the accuracy, range, and control somewhat, but the mobility does take a hit.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FSS Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammo: 50-round mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Now, whether or not the weapon will displace some others and cement its place in the meta is anyone guess. However, it’s still not as quick as weapons like the FFAR and Mac-10, so it might take another round of nerfs and buffs to really get the Ram-7 up there. 

Yet, Nick’s setup is a pretty nice close to mid-range setup, and worth messing around with if you’re looking for something new.
