Warzone leaker reveals new items and major changes coming soon

A series of new Warzone leaks reveal a plethora of major changes coming to Verdansk soon — including a potential new gamemode and a new way at peeking the circle!

While Warzone may have revolutionized the battle royale meta when it was introduced back in March 2020, there has been very little offered to players to change the pace since.

Aside from introducing new Contracts, swapping out some weapons and adding dedicated duos/quads modes, the game itself is almost identical to what was on offer over three months ago.

Very little has changed in Verdansk since March.

But that could all change, if Geeky Pastimes’ findings come to fruition. The Warzone data miner posted a series of leaks which imply that a plethora of new items are coming to Verdansk

We already understand that a new “spotter scope” is due to be added, and that a big in-game event is on the horizon (which could be linked to the changes coming to the Stadium POI).

New Warzone gamemode?

Yet it appears that Infinity Ward has plenty more up their sleeve, as even more items and changes are in the pipeline, per Geeky Pastimes’ leak.

Recon Drones will prove a lot more useful than just obtaining intel, as they will now have the added functionality of being able to hack nearby items. Presumably this will be opponents’ equipment, and if so, this will be a game-changer in combating rooftop campers with claymores dotted all over entrances.

The leaker also implies that ‘Prop Hunt’ could be making a triumphant return to the franchise, and will be added to Verdansk in some capacity — a popular gamemode that was first introduced on Black Ops 3.

Peeking the circle location in Warzone?

And to top things off, there could be an additional item coming to Buy Stations which will permit players a peek at the next circle/endgame circle location. Although the dataminer struggled to interpret the exact way in which this would work.

Should this hold substance, though, this will render Recon Contracts also useless (unless the price point of the circle peek is ridiculously high).

Of course, as with all leaks, these findings must be taken with a pinch of salt… Infinity Ward may decide to pull the plug on any of these potential changes.

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.
