Call Of Duty: Warzone players hasn't even been out for a week, but players have already come across a potentially game-breaking revive exploit. I imagine the development teams at Raven Software and Infinity Ward will want to get on fixing this as soon as possible, because this particular glitch ain't pretty.
The glitch was first discovered by Reddit user Mightykonsti (thanks VG247), who stumbled upon accidentally with a teammate before sharing it with the rest of the internet. If you've played Warzone, you'll be aware of the standard battle royale shrinking circle that's represented by a ring of deadly gas that grows in size, forcing players closer together as a match goes on.
Obviously, staying in the gas results in death for any player who decides to stay out in it for a long enough time. Since the whole point of the gas is to keep you moving, the damage ignores whatever armour you've got on and goes straight for your core HP. This usually swift death can be delayed by finding a gas mask, but these are fairly drops. Your best bet is just stay the hell away from the gas - or so it seemed.
Thanks to Mightykonsti and their teammate, we now know that it's possible to revive while inside the gas for as long as is needed. Assuming you're out there with at least one other player, you can take it turns to revive one another until everybody else in the match has killed one another.

Now, the more people know about this exploit, the less likely it is that anybody will be able to get away with it. But there's a chance that some of any sneakier players (cheaters) out there could head out into the gas with their full squad of three, hide away at the very edge of the map, and just wait the game out.
You can take a look at the bug in action below. This is obviously going to get patched, presumably in the next update... but it's something for all you Warzone players out there to be aware of in the meantime.
Activision confirmed earlier this week that it has tons planned for Warzone, including live events and new content. Infinity Ward has also teased that we'll be getting 200-player matches somewhere down the line, along with four and five-player squads. I'm assuming this will all come after the studio fixes this and any other exploits that might be lurking in the battle royale, of course.
