By now, everyone on the internet knows that cool guys don't look at explosion. In Call of Duty Warzone, that truth can mean the difference between life and death.

In this clip, posted to the Warzone subreddit Thursday by u/jethropenistei-, the no-look serves as the perfect bait for some road-raging enemies.

Jethropenistei- was wandering the open roads in a recent Warzone match when they saw a truck approaching from the distance. Rather than try to shoot the vehicle to death, jethropenistei- decided to lay a trap.

Turning away from the truck, they made a cursory attempt to run away before throwing down a proximity mine. Risking life and limb, they decided to avoid looking back to see if the mine would work to ensure that the enemy driver wouldn't suspect the trick.

The engine's roar grows louder and louder, but jethropenistei- stayed strong, eyes averted to the encroaching danger. Then, all at once, a massive explosion rings out. Jethropenistei- turns around to see the truck vanish in a haze of smoke, the enemy driver down on the ground waiting to be eliminated.
