Vikkstar and Tommey discover unbreakable Warzone Gas Mask glitch

In a game with professional streamer Vikram ‘Vikkstar’ Singh Barn and the Dallas Empire’s Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, the two Call of Duty professionals discovered a game-breaking Gas Mask glitch.

After winning three consecutive Warzone Wednesdays, Vikkstar is no stranger to hacking accusations. So it’s no wonder that he and the boys were quick to have a laugh when one of their teammates, Tommey, encountered a wild glitched Gas Mask while approaching the final circle.

In Vikkstar’s video of their gameplay, Tommey’s Gas Mask reaches its breaking point while he’s looting in the gas, but proceeds not to break and, instead, keeps him immune to the gas until the rest of the teams have died—a full five minutes and 37 seconds.

Gas Masks can be bought or found across Verdansk, offering solace from the dangers of the game’s gas.

Vikkstar is a partnered Call of Duty streamer, YouTube content creator, and the highest earner from Warzone tournaments at the moment. Tommey is a substitute player for the Call of Duty League’s Dallas roster. Both are professionals and have far too many eyes on them to casually cheat on purpose in casual Warzone matches.

Still, in the spirit of experimentation, they did test out the full extents of Tommey’s bugged Gas Mask. At about 7:15 into Vikkstar’s VOD, the glitch is encountered and they proceed to see just how far it goes—with Tommey eventually running from Quarry all the way past Lumber, continuously in the gas.

Since Vikkstar plays on PC, he has earned his fair share of clips questioned for suspicious content. Understandably, the Call of Duty community is not used to seeing the flick shots regularly found in PC-dominant FPS titles like Overwatch.

But neither Vikkstar nor Tommey cheat on purpose (even if they did test this one out once it happened), so this glitch gets lumped into the bag of rare bugs Infinity Ward is tasked with solving. As of yet, it is not included on their Trello Board for community-suggested problems, but that resource is not comprehensive so it’s possible that they are aware of it.

As gleaned by other players, it’s possible that the glitch is caused by some interaction with looting while the Gas Mask deteriorates—as Tommey was trying to pick up a UAV right as his mask was meant to crack. Whatever the case, hopefully it’s solved soon, as there could be few more annoying ways to lose than to someone halfway across the map lounging in the gas.

Activision has officially unveiled all the details about the Haunting of Verdansk event coming to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it’s going to be packed with spooky content. To celebrate, Lionsgate is offering special Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed content for the game, and we’ve got the details on how to unlock them.

After being leaked around a week ago, Activision has finally unveiled its Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre crossovers in Warzone. Players will soon be able to purchase bundles based on the two horror franchises in the in-game store for around $20, and they both come with the usual suspects: ew Operators skins, weapon blueprints, emotes, etc.

Players will also be able to get their hands on a couple of items themed around the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise without having to put down any cash or COD points at all if they follow some simple steps.

How to unlock the Texas Chainsaw Massacre emblem & calling card?

Unlocking these items is simple – you don’t have to do anything within the actual Modern Warfare or Warzone application to earn them. Instead, just get on their computer or mobile device, go to the film franchise’s main website and follow some easy steps in order to get a free emblem and calling card:

If players want to get their hands on Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed items, they’ll have to follow the steps below.

After that point, Activision will send you a code for the emblem and calling card within two weeks. It is interesting to note, however, that the fine print on the website says it’ll be available in-game after November 9, 2020, which would technically be three weeks from the announcement, so it’s unknown what the case actually is.

We also don’t technically have a peek at either the calling card or emblem, so it’s anyone’s best guess as to what it actually looks like in-game. More than likely, it’ll be similar to the image seen on the site – but that’s pure speculation at this point.

We’ll update this article with more details and images when they become available.
