Just when you thought the Call of Duty: Warzone Squads kill record was safe, it gets broken again, but this time by an entirely different squad. The latest record of 138 kills was set on May 24 - check out the video of the match below.

The recent record was set by a team of four and comes: Vikrima "Vikkstar123" Singh, and three pro esports players form FaZe Atalanta, McCarthur "Celium" Jovel, Preston "Priestahh" Greiner, and Tyler "aBeZy" Pharris. Singh initially posted the record on Twitter as 137 kills, but after looking back at the match report realized a 138th kill didn't register.  

The reactions on Twitter were exactly what you'd expect from such an impressive performance - high-profile streamers and professional Call of Duty Players wondered how with as even possible, while NYSL player Attach called the quartet "twisted." 

The above-mentioned squad dethroned the previous record holders, which set a  Call of Duty: Warzone Squads kill record of 121 kills on May 15. The squad was comprised of popular Call of Duty players and streamers, Symfuhny, HusKerrs, Tyler "TeeP" Polchow, and DougisRaw. TylerTeePee shared a clip of the match finale on Twitter, and HusKerrs followed up with a screenshot taken after the final kill tally, proving the 121 kill record. 

The Squads kill record has jumped from 78 to 113 to 121, and there's no telling how high FPS enthusiasts will push it. Technically, there are only 148 enemy players in a full Squads lobby, but the maximum potential kill count is actually much higher. Players can respawn after dying by winning in the Gulag, or by having their teammates buy them back in, meaning the same player can theoretically be killed multiple times, and each successive kill would count toward the record. 

Players have speculated that the Squads kill record will soon break the 150 mark, which would certainly be something to see. I barely break 10 kills on a good day, but I've learned not to underestimate esports pros. I've no doubt this record will be broken again and again.
