Warzone streamer heartbroken after being baited by viral trick on TikTok

A Call of Duty: Warzone streamer was excited to show off a trick he learned from TikTok, only for it to end up in disaster as he broke his ankles and learned that you can’t trust the internet.

LuckyChamu has earned Warzone world records and steadily built a following alongside the game’s best players by participating in tournaments and dropping tons of kills. Unfortunately, he fell for a viral TikTok video showcasing an exciting trick and…dropped to his death.

The TikTok, described as “Warzone tips and tricks,” was shared around and quickly amassed over 350,000 views and 27,000 likes in less than a week. In the clip, it’s shown that players can drop off of normally fatal heights and survive if they land on a dumpster or garbage bin below.

The video explains that “a dumpster will stop fall damage” and (un)LuckyChamu was, unfortunately, one of the people who saw it, as the streamer sought to gain an edge over his competition and show his channel something new.

In a game of Quads, with two of his teammates already eliminated and only three other teams remaining, Chamu tried to pull off the trick. It was a bold effort to trust the internet in such a high-stakes situation.

 

The streamer fell perfectly atop the dumpster, as instructed, and was immediately knocked, prompting a reaction that blends shock with disappointment: “Bro, I saw a f**king TikTok that you can jump on the f**king trash can, bro!”

Later, he explained the emotions he felt in the moment: “No bulls**t, when I went down, my heart was literally crushed.”

In a squad with some other popular Warzone streamers, the entire team simply cracked up in the background, one saying he had seen the viral video too, as Chamu learned a lesson that everyone should know by now: don’t trust everything you see on the internet.

Video proof that you can survive high falls off buildings in ground war by landing in trash filled dumpsters with a pretty unique kill to top it off from modernwarfare

 

It’s not perfectly certain what actually happened here, as some believe the dumpster trick has been patched since the video’s original inception (worth noting that this new viral one was classified as a re-upload) and others believe that this trick only exists in multiplayer.

Back in November 2019, it was confirmed that players could survive fall damage from incredible heights simply by cushioning their falls with dumpsters, similar to how Assassin’s Creed works.

However, as things currently stand, don’t try this at home folks!

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
