Warzone Player Gets Killed by Leftover Equipment Gulag Glitch

In the Warzone Gulag, it's just you versus your opponent on equal footing, mano a mano. At least, that's what it's supposed to be.

A Call of Duty: Warzone player recently discovered a fatal glitch in the Gulag system where it appears the Verdansk '84 prison janitorial crew forgot to clean up the mess from the fight prior. Check out this bug encountered by Reddit user u/Cracky6711.

On July 22, Cracky6711 posted a thread to the Warzone subreddit titled, "Killed by a claymore in a semtex gulag - anyone seen this before? Was it somehow a leftover from a previous gulag or is there some other explanation?"

As can be seen clearly in the 11-second clip, although the fight was supposed to only have Semtex Grenades present on the map, Cracky6711 not only didn't lose thanks to something his opponent did, but died by a leftover Claymore from a previous fight.

Talk about unlucky.

A signature trademark of Warzone, players who die in Verdansk before late-game are taken to the Gulag where they can fight 1v1 with another unlucky player for redeployment. The fight is strictly intended to be a mirror matchup with both entrants using the same random preset class.

Yeah, [the bug] been discussed before here. For whatever reason, unexploded claymores stick around sometimes. It's a dev thing, not a player thing.

While this is a humorous clip at the moment, Raven Software should definitely have finding a fix for this bug at the top of their Trello board to-do list.
