'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Camper Uses Old-School Exploit To Become Invincible

For as long as there have been Call Of Duty games, there have been campers. These players enjoy securing one particularly advantageous area and staying there for most of the game in an effort to surprise/pick off enemies and claim the win. It's hardly a new strategy, and it's one that has split players down the middle for well over a decade now.

Whatever your thoughts on camping and those who employ it, it's kind of hard to argue it's not a valid tactic in Call Of Duty: Warzone. The battle royale is, after all, about holding a position and coming out as the last one standing - securing a certain spot and staying there for as long as you can is a perfectly valid way to do that. Even so, it still rubs players up the wrong way, with many arguing that it's a cheap trick.

Regardless of whether or not camping is a "cheap" way to play, I think we can all agree that camping and using exploits to make your camping harder to deal with is straight-up trash. Bad news then, as it looks like an old-school Modern Warfare trick has resurfaced in Warzone, effectively making campers invincible.

As reported by Charlie Intel, it's currently possible to "lock" doors by using an old trick. All you need to do is stand on the other side of the door, and players won't be able to come in as long as you're blocking the other side. This could typically be countered by planting C4 and blasting the door open by force, sending the camper across the room in the process.

Unfortunately, it looks as if at least a few campers have discovered a way to counter this workaround. As you can see from the video below (or via this link), YouTuber JackFrags came across a squad hiding out in a bunker who'd found a way to keep the door blocked indefinitely. While explosives would blow the door open for a moment, it quickly slam shut seconds later, making it impossible for JackFrags and his squad to get in at the enemy team.

With no way to get into the bunker and attack the squad, JackFrags simply had to wait with his own teammates and hope that they'd open the door by choice. Sure enough, the campers eventually made their move, allowing Team JackFrags to storm the bunker and do away with the three players inside. But while it was undeniably satisfying to see players who were clearly using an exploit get taken down, nobody seems any the wiser as to exactly how they managed to keep the door locked up so tight.

The general consensus is that one of the players inside the bunker found just the right place to stand so that explosives would open the door but not throw them across the room, giving them more than enough time to instantly lock the door again.

It's certainly an odd strategy though, especially since the squad inside the bunker couldn't actually do anything while inside. So yeah, they might have technically been invincible... but they also couldn't harm anyone else. Not the best exploit, all in all.
