CoD Warzone’s gas mask is somehow finding new ways to kill players instead of saving them with gamers frustrated by this new issue.

Even though CoD’s premiere battle royale experience is now into Season 4 Reloaded and two years on from the game’s debut, the controversial gas mask is finding new ways to stir up trouble.

For the longest time, fans of the game have been left in a state of panic when they’re near gas with a mask in their possession, as they know that if a firefight ensues, the game’s mask removal system may cause a fight to go south quickly.

Just take out the stupid animation please it seems like they’re never going to get it right.”

So even taking the right precautions and having the mask in place, the game will for some reason still register gas damage, which obviously causes a loud, obnoxious cough – giving away your position to anyone nearby.

It’s clearly happening to other people too, with the top comment reading: “Agree! It is so annoying,” said the top comment, and

Another user added: ” Dude, two days ago I intentionally stayed in the gas so my operator would put the mask on and then I could shoot people running into zone from inside the gas, instead I never put it on for the 3 seconds I was standing in gas and taking gas damage. Decided to just go in zone and fight, the instant I’m outside the gas the mask puts itself on and I lose the gunfight, like what?”

With the new gas mask toggle option on the way, the deaths caused by the erratic piece of equipment might finally be coming to an end.
