Game-breaking League exploit lets you spam item actives endlessly

It seems Riot has accidentally added an items-only version of URF into League at the start of pre-season. This newly discovered exploit, which allows players with a sheen to reset the cooldown of active items at will, is insanely broken.

Riot has made a few adjustments to the sheen item in League of Legends lately. With developers keen to make mana items less abundant, the build potential from a sheen – which empowers the player’s next auto-attack after using an ability – has changed. While items like Iceborn Gauntlet have been removed, other items like Essence Reaver now have a sheen in its build path.

Riot also had to issue a hotfix during the latest patch after players were soloing baron at 20 minutes with tank junglers like Amumu, due to the bami’s cinder items being massively overtuned.

While that hotfix mostly impacted game balance, this current issue is downright unfair. It goes without saying, but if you try to abuse this exploit in your ranked game, you’ll probably pick up a ban.

One player, u/brivin17, shared this video of the bug, which shows any player with a sheen and an item with an active can reduce the active cooldown to just 2.5 seconds.

So this is a little bit dumb, and it’s easy to reproduce by following these steps:

  1. Use an item active
  2. Use an ability
  3. Swap the places of the exhausted item and the sheen in the item slots
  4. Auto-attack to proc the sheen effect
  5. Voila: your exhausted item is ready to use again

This exploit is particularly broken on champions like Ezreal, who naturally build a sheen item, like a Tri-Force, and an item with an active, like a Blade of the Ruined King.

It also opens up opportunities for champions like Ashe, who could build the mythic item Galeforce and an Essence Reaver. This would grant her unlimited dashes, negating her central weakness: a lack of mobility.

Imagine Ashe’s kiting ability with extra access to dashes.

Equally, support players could pick up a Sheen for 700 gold, then use it to access unlimited use of Redemption. Due to the nature of the role, it’d be easier to manage the slot switches during teamfights too.

It’s unlikely Riot will let this exploit stick around for much longer before they issue a hotfix, so have fun with it while you can. Just make sure you only use it in customs with friends.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
