Warzone players are incensed after discovering that the game-breaking stim glitch is back in all its glory, letting enemies stay in the gas for unlimited amounts of time.

In the latter months of 2020, Warzone was infested with the notorious stim glitch, which saw players equip a Stim Shot in their tactical slot and sit endlessly in the storm, waiting out for their opponents to die in the gas while they could endlessly keep rejuvenating health.

It was absolutely infuriating for players to come up against these cheaters, and the devs were forced to remove the stim shot while they sought a fix.

Eventually, it was fixed, and the stim glitch existed no longer — but, as expected, players have found a way of doing it once again and it’s already causing mayhem in endgame situations.

The Stim shot belongs in the tactical slot alongside the Heartbeat Sensor and Stun Grenades, among others.

At one point, lobbies were filled with multiple players abusing the glitch, happily camping out the end of the game waiting for their opponents to give up on the glitch and give away the win. Now, it’s happening all over again.

It’s not yet evident how long the glitch has been in the game again, whether it was with the most recent January 6 update or sometime before or after it, but it’s taking over lobbies again.

As you can see in the clip below, from HugoSimpsonII on Reddit, players are once again abusing it, and it is becoming more and more prevalent as word spreads.

It’s not evident whether the same method as before is used to make the stim glitch work, though we wouldn’t advise doing it, as if you end up being mass-reported you may end up being banned as a result.

As you can imagine, players aren’t happy, and have taken to social media to report the issue and complain about it — and we can’t blame them for it, either.

With any luck, Activision will catch on to this issue before long and get it out of the game again, whether that’s with a permanent fix or simply removing the stim shot from Warzone altogether.

The reigning Call of Duty League Champions, Dallas Empire have signed 23-year-old veteran Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson as their first substitute for the upcoming 2021 campaign.

FeLo is set to join the Empire as a substitute player after playing for Triumph. A specialist in Search & Destroy, he’s expected to bolster the team’s prowess in the stringent game type now that the league is moving to a 4v4 format.

“Bringing FeLo to the team was a natural move for us as we prepare to repeat our championship run from the League’s first season,” Empire’s Head Coach Ray ‘Rambo’ Lussier said. “He’s a world-class Search & Destroy player and helped us prepare for the Grand Finals last year, so we’re expecting great things from him.”

Years ago, FeLo made a name for himself online as one of the best S&D players, and the Team Envy-owned org is relying on him to bring a new type of heat to Dallas’ heavy-hitting squad.

“Blessed to be a part of such a great organization, going to help the boys in any way I can this year,” FeLo said of the announcement. “Thank you guys for all the love.”

During the 2020 North American Challengers Final, Triumph managed to claim the top prize of $50,000 while only dropping one map of S&D during their playoff run to first place.

While the Empire had one of the strongest overall offenses in the CDL last year, their Search & Destroy was a glaring point in their game that would look shaky against the best in the league.

By signing FeLo, Empire gives themselves some flexibility to switch out Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland or Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter for someone that has a wealth of experience navigating S&D.

The CDL 2020 champs just got stronger by adding S&D specialist FeLo.

Even after departing with James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks due to the new Black Ops Cold War format, the Empire’s starting roster has to be considered among the strongest in the league.

Now Rambo will have to find the best ways to maneuver his five-man squad when going up against tough competitors like Atlanta FaZe, OpTic Chicago, and more.

FeLo has signed with Dallas Empire, but the move is pending league approval.

Dallas Empire’s 2021 CDL Roster:

  • Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro
  • Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland
  • Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal
  • Ian ‘C6’ Porter
  • Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson (Substitute)
