A new Call of Duty: Warzone exploit turns the already-lethal Sykov pistol into a perfectly accurate killing machine with no recoil.

Players were already upset about the capability of the Sykov pistols officially dropped with the April 15 update. Not only were they outrageously over-powered to begin with, their compatibility with different mods and perks meant they could quickly be turned into one of the most effective weapons when placed in experienced hands. The Sykov can already be turned into a full-auto, 80 round reaper with the Akimbo perk.

Here’s what other devastating tricks players have found.

The exploit relies on a bit of effort to unlock—which we, of course, won’t go into here. We trust that interested enough players can find their own way to that information without our help.

News of the exploit spread like wildfire after a demonstration by popular Warzone streamer Ethan “Stukawaki.” Several players were quick to express concern and dismay upon seeing it in action—including other experienced players. The replies were littered with calls for Raven Software to fix the exploit or remove the pistols. Others voiced frustration at its existence entirely.

“At this point @RavenSoftware are just writing the handbook on ‘what not to do when you’re in charge of the biggest shooter on the planet’,” wrote Twitter user @BradSalFinch21a.

Fortunately, a few major Warzone outlets have allegedly managed to pass the exploit procedure on to developers in hopes of a solution. At the time of writing, however, neither Activision nor Raven Software have issued a relative statement. Additionally, Raven’s Trello board bears no mention to it.
