By chance, a Call of Duty: Warzone player discovered an ingenious way to clear campers from ziplines by utilizing gas canisters.
Camping is a problem that many Warzone gamers have to deal with, but one player came up with a unique way to combat zip line campers. This is the latest in a long line of player-created solutions to improve the Warzone experience by utilizing various unusual materials, including the gas canister in this case.
Warzone, the popular game Call of Duty‘s battle royale companion, just received a major makeover. In conjunction with the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard, the Warzone map was changed to the new Pacific-themed Caldera. The update also incorporates Vanguard’s armaments and World War II-era guns and equipment. While players have only had a few days to explore Caldera, they have already discovered some convenient camping spots, particularly around the ziplines. Should players not have access to a car, the ziplines that crisscross the whole area give them a quick and easy means to travel Caldera on foot. However, one gamer has discovered a simple technique to clear those ziplines of campers who are waiting to suffocate unwary crossers.
The method was discovered by chance and shared on Reddit by user UsusualGenePool. UnusualGenePool mistakenly burns a gas canister they’re carrying while attempting to climb the zipline, sending it flying up the line towards the bridge above. UnusualGenePool is surprised when the gas canister explodes at the top. This trick’s possibilities are limitless, even if it didn’t get UnusualGenePool a kill. When a player considers traversing a zipline, they now have the option of sending the gas canister ahead of them to murder any would-be campers. In the comments, many Warzone participants mentioned that they could apply this tactic in a future game.
Even if the new Caldera map ushers in a new era for Warzone, gamers are still grappling with the frustrations that come with the battle royale genre. Campers are the most problematic of these difficulties. Therefore any chance for players to get a leg up on a camping player will be cherished. Warzone’s Caldera map, for example, has its challenges at debut, such as powerful vehicles and weapons. However, it’s encouraging to see that countermeasures are being developed.
Because of this level of inventiveness and invention, Warzone is one of the world’s most popular and most played battle royale games. While the game can annoy players at times, knowing where to look for techniques like UnusualGenePool can keep Warzone intriguing and exciting.
Call of Duty: Warzone is currently available for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
