A new exploit in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare allows players to disappear under the map was discovered on Wednesday.

The glitch was first discovered by Reddit user Trophox while playing on the Tavorsk Distrcit map in Ground War. In the clip, Trophox walks away after killing an opponent only to be taken out himself by an unseen enemy.

Trophox initially appears unbothered by the kill, probably assuming he was taken out by a sniper on top of a building. When the kill cam pops up, though, he is quite surprised to see where the shot came from.

The kill cam shows the killer in question running on a patch of grass below the map, out-of-sight of his opponents. The player then aims through the ground to kill Trophox while remaining unseen.

COD: Modern Warfare players are very familiar to glitches, and this out-of-map exploit has been seen in earlier editions of the Call of Duty franchise. It gives players who trigger it a distinct advantage, as they are unable to be killed while hiding under the map, but can still kill others players.

It is unclear if this exploit is only possible in certain game modes or certain maps, but players should be on the lookout for kills from invisible enemies in the coming days. A commenter under Trophox's original video on Reddit asked that all players who encounter this exploit report it to the Activision support account on Twitter.
