Three FaZe Clan Call of Duty pros have been playing a lot of Warzone with the Sidemen’s Vikkstar – and have now broken the world record for fastest win in Verdansk.

Vikkstar, real name Vikram Singh Barn, has been running with Atlanta FaZe’s Tyler ‘Abezy’ Pharris, Preston ‘Priestahh’ Griener and Jovel ‘Cellium’ McArthur, and they’ve become a force to be reckoned with in Warzone.

On May 24, only a couple of days prior to this incredibly quick game, the team set the world record for most kills in a Squads game with 138, beating the previous record of 121.

There’s undeniably some magic in the air when these four get together, and they proved it once again when they dropped in and made short work of just about every player they encountered.

While this match didn’t end with such an insanely high kill count, the players could barely believe how quick it finished.

Before the fourth circle even appeared on the screen, with barely 19 minutes gone, Vikkstar took down the last player left, but they did meet a slight hitch when getting the kill.

While the players celebrated and expected the victory screen to appear, nothing actually happened, and the player count remained at 5, meaning there was still one more left.

A few moments later, Vikk realized what the issue was: the final player was sat in the Gulag all by himself, and they had to wait for the clock to tick away and him to join the fray before they could celebrate.

The timer reached 20 minutes and 4 seconds, which is a frustrating loss of around 45 seconds for the team having to wait for the player to leave the Gulag, but nonetheless it was lightning fast.

Though the record for fastest game hasn’t really been tracked up to this point, Vikkstar and his FaZe Clan cohort have set a very high standard for players seeking quick wins. They have challenged fellow players and content creators to beat their time.

So, if you’re looking to claim this Warzone world record, you might want to get to work, because under 20 minutes is a seriously impressive accomplishment.

How to glitch outside Nuketown ’84 for free kills in Black Ops Cold War

While Nuketown has appeared in more Call of Duty titles than any other map, the new Black Ops Cold War variant has come with a frustrating issue that allows players to break out of the map.

Nuketown has long been a fan favorite in the CoD franchise. The close-quarters map is chaotic from start to finish as players jump right into the action without having to track enemies down. It’s now in its eighth version, though the new iteration has come with a painful exploit.

If you’ve played on an older version of the map before, you’ll likely know every little nook and cranny. Nuketown ‘84 still has one of these little secrets intact as RC-XD users can race around outside the map on a special path.

Typically, this is a good way to get your explosive buddy across to the other side of the map. It can travel safely and emerge without alerting nearby enemies. However, it turns out players can now access this space as well.

This area has only ever been accessible for the tiny vehicle, until now. Players have discovered a way to break through the traditional boundaries and camp outside of the map for some of the easiest kills you’ll ever see.

From this glitched location, you get a clear line of sight to the side of one of the houses. The most broken part of being here though is that your presence doesn’t have any impact on enemy spawns. They can still appear directly in front of you without realizing, leading to some effortless kills.

Dexerto staff personally encountered this issue while playing on PC. There appears to be a location right at the edge of the playable space that avoids the ‘out of bounds’ instakill effect.

Wedging yourself between some cacti and the fence will keep you alive outside of the map. Obviously, this can be shut down after a few kills once players realize your position. However, it could be too little too late.

Treyarch is yet to address this particular issue. However, something so critical is sure to be fixed in the very near future.

In the meantime, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for pesky enemies well outside the map.
