Almost all Warzone players have become accustomed to dying in incredibly frustrating ways. Anyone who has spent a significant amount of time playing shooters will know the terrible feeling of being killed unfairly.

Reddit user drayray98 shared a recent clip of him being killed through no fault of his own. In fact, he was attempting to make a kill himself, but an animation in the game had other ideas.

The clip shows drayray98's operator slowly climbing up a ladder behind another player sniping from a high point in Verdansk Stadium. The other player didn't hear drayray98 coming, giving him the perfect opportunity for an easy elimination.

Drayray98 tried to use his Take Down Move to kill the opposing player, but unfortunately, he was too close to the hole that he climbed up through to use the move. The animation ended up taking drayray98 a step backwards, which caused him to fall down the hole to his death.

Deaths like this one are pretty common in Warzone, but that doesn't make them any less frustrating. Players always need to make sure that they are in an optimal position before using the Take Down Move, as the animation timing is responsible for the destruction of many controllers.
