'Call of Duty: Warzone' Stim Glitch Returns, but This Version Is Hard To Do

Call of Duty: Warzone has been battling unlimited Stim glitches over the past few months, and a fourth iteration of the exploit has been making its way around battle royale lobbies over the past few days. This new version of the flaw isn't as much of a glitch as the other ones based on how it operates, but the end result is the same: griefers are able to survive hiding in the game's toxic gas cloud until most or all other opponents have perished.

We won't go into precise detail on how the latest Stim glitch is done, but we will say it requires having lots of in-game cash to pull off. By quickly completing large amounts of Contracts throughout the course of a match, a well-organized team may be able to accrue $50,000 to $70,000. Once that tough task is accomplished, squads are essentially able to purchase enough Munitions Boxes to survive the duration of the gas cloud for the rest of the match.

This is unlike the previous versions of the Stim glitch that made waves throughout Warzone last year, as this particular method takes advantage of loopholes in legal gameplay mechanics and is not a clearly defined coding flaw. In fact, this isn't really the first time Warzone has endured a situation on this scale. In early 2020, players were spam-purchasing Gas Masks to survive the gas cloud. This is effectively the same idea, it just leverages a different item to help players stay alive.

Much like the prior Gas Mask problem, the solution for this version of the Stim glitch will require an adjustment to how the Munitions Box itself works. For example, after an update, it's possible the box could despawn entirely while in the gas cloud. Perhaps a more permanent fix, however, would be to make it so players can only use a small number of Stims while surrounded by gas. This would mean that average players on the edge of the circle would still be able to find their way in, but those who are very deep in the cloud would eventually be stranded and perish. Given how frequently these Stim glitches appear, there's even a small subset of players who wouldn't mind seeing Stims cut from the game entirely.

Regardless of how the questionable use of Stims presents itself, there's no doubt the feature remains a problem for the competitive integrity of Warzone. The game's developers at Raven Software will once again be tasked with the goal of finding a way to ensure health regeneration can't break the experience. It's possible we'll see some kind of fix in a playlist update later today, but our guess is that this issue may take some extra time to fully resolve.
