A bizarre glitch accidentally let a Warzone 2 player perform an execution on their teammate during a Gulag match.

A holdover from the original Call of Duty: Warzone, the Gulag is a prison where players duke it out with others after dying in a battle royale game.

And for those who want to get better at surviving the prison-based battle, Call of Duty pro Apathy recently shared a few noteworthy tips and tricks.
