A new Call of Duty: Warzone exploit allows players to choose their starting weapon based on what they drop before deployment.

Season 4 Reloaded was released on June 29 and some believe it is the mid-season patch. It brought in playlist and weapon changes for both Modern Warfare and Warzone. In addition, it introduced a new tactical gear, the Spotter Scope which acts as binoculars for players. With the season meant to be roughly two months long, players expect Season 5 to begin in August.

Warzone Exploit Allows Players to Choose Starting Weapon

A new Warzone exploit allows players to choose their starting weapon based on the weapon they receive in the lobby. Players who aren't happy with their lobby weapon can start a new game until they get the weapon they want. With this exploit, timing is just as important as a player's personal choice on their starting weapon.

Here is how to complete the exploit:

1. Check weapon player receives in pre-game lobby.
2. Place a marker on where the player is as reference for drop.
3. Drop the weapon when the countdown time is in-between one and zero seconds.
4. Land near or at the marker point. The weapon dropped before getting into the plane should still be at the place it was dropped in the pre-game lobby.

The exploit gives players a starting boost compared to just a regular pistol. It wouldn't be surprising to see players use this exploit until it is fixed by Infinity Ward. The developers have yet to comment or release a statement on the exploit.
