One Warzone player has taken to Reddit to post a quick way to level up weapons introduced in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

User JustLawlyOnTwitch posted the method on the official CODWarzone subreddit board on Monday, Dec. 27. They outlined the steps in a short post which, according to them, are "pretty simple." Players need to pop a double experience token, head to Rebirth Island, get a chopper and their chosen weapon and then just fly around "with a friend" completing Supply Run missions. They can also purchase UAVs to avoid others while leveling up their weapons.

"Each contract is around 700~1k exp," they explain, "With x2 exp event [and] tokens its 4k+...One game got me 30~40 levels."

Unfortunately for JustLawlyOnTwitch, this isn't a new method. Warzone players have long since known about this and likely have exploited it already.

When one commenter predicted Raven Software coming in to issue an "emergency patch," they're met with another noting that "this has been the known fastest way for a year now." Despite this, some users took issue with the method and its viability.

"Let me get this straight," Brixil wrote, "You want me to drop, find or buy my gun via loadout, and then do contracts without dying? No thanks. I’ll stick to plunder contracts...."

ImmortalHitman720 replied, "Its nice in theory and works well but the odds of staying alive for a significant period of time on top of getting a supply run, helicopter, and completing them is half and half. One game I got 3 contracts done, two others I just got hosed down."

Others took the opportunity to search for interested co-pilots for their Rebirth Island chopper with varying levels of success.

It's unclear whether Raven Software will look into this exploit or seek to publish a hotfix preventing it.
