This Warzone 2.0 Exploit Makes You Immortal And Deadly

Thus far, Activision's free-to-play battle royale title "Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0" has had its fair share of glitches and bugs since its launch in November. Some glitches have had hilarious results, like a bug in which a helicopter unexpectedly glitches through walls to kill players, resulting in a match that's impossible to win but very easy to laugh at. Others have been infuriating, including a few different glitches that have caused players to become invisible to one another. These kinds of bugs are par for the course when a massive new multiplayer game launches, and players have mostly taken them in stride. However, sometimes players find bugs that can be exploited for an easy win. For instance, a new bug within "Warzone 2.0" has emerged that makes players more effective in combat — and virtually impossible to kill.

On January 2, Reddit user iLLa556 posted a video to the "Warzone" subreddit showing one of their killcams from a previous match. The Redditor made it very clear that they believed the player they went up against was cheating:

This is definitely not cheating from


In the killcam, the user is shown to be entering the doorway of a building when seemingly out of nowhere, they start taking heavy fire. Despite the proximity markers indicating that the attack was coming from in front of the player, no enemy can be seen. And because they were in a building, there was no reason to believe that the attack was coming from above. Eventually, the player is killed. That's where the killcam really comes into play, revealing the use of a pretty obvious exploit. At first glance, you might think the exploitative player found a way to make their Operator see-through, but the truth is even wilder.

A glitch in Warzone 2.0 allows players to hide in walls

In the killcam posted to Reddit, two players are shown to be hiding within the walls and ceiling of the building. Now, this is obviously a glitch, and not something that is supposed to happen, but it seems these two players were more than happy to take advantage of the situation. As soon as their victim enters the area in the video, one of the exploiters sprays bullets into the unsuspecting opponent without fear of consequence or returning fire. Due to the close quarters in many of the buildings in Al Mazrah City, this particular glitch can provide a massive advantage to any player clever (or dastardly) enough to attempt it.

Predictably, responses to the original post branded the glitch as cheating, with one user saying that Activision should punish any player brash enough to take advantage of it. "Cheating, exploiting, still should be punishable." Others dragged the player using the exploit, pointing out that their poor aim — even when having an easy target right who can't fight back — is telling of why they're using the exploit in the first place.

It is unknown when Infinity Ward will get around to patching this exploit. However, as pointed out by one Redditor, it allegedly took "months" for Infinity Ward to patch out a glitch in the first "Warzone" title that involved players camping below the map. Not only that, but it's worth noting that this type of wall glitch is not a new problem for the "Warzone" subseries — and last time, players found a way to fight back.

Warzone's wall glitch woes

Last year, prior to the launch of "Warzone 2.0," gamers were pulling their hair out in frustration over players who would glitch inside of walls and barriers and sneak up on unsuspecting squads. However, in another Reddit post that earned the praise of the "Warzone" community, one Reddit user revealed that a handy Snapshot grenade would go a long way towards solving this problem. 

How to deal with those wall glitchers from

Tossing a Snapshot grenade briefly reveals the location of enemies within the radius of your team, and this Reddit user discovered that it would also reveal the silhouettes of players hiding in the walls. Once they've been revealed, it's fairly easy for a player with decent aim to take those cheaters out. It's probably worth trying this out in "Warzone 2.0" as well, especially if this new wall glitch becomes a common occurrence.

It should be mentioned that it's entirely possible this latest wall/ceiling exploit is the result of hacking, rather than a good old fashioned glitch exploit. In that case, it could be a bit more difficult to patch out. Either way, hopefully Infinity Ward can get to the bottom of the issue and rescue players from these rats in the walls.
