Call of Duty: Warzone players are certainly creative killers, whether it's using chopper blades to slice through grounded enemies or taking the all-important ammo box and using it as a weapon. 

Lessons were learned this day . from r/ModernWarzone

No, you can't drop the ammo box on an enemy's head (at least I don't think you can), but it's well-known that these boxes can blow up if they're shot at. That's why it's suggested you put one down in a safe space, in case an enemy team comes around the corner and sees your entire squad standing in the middle of Promenade East huddled around a box. 

But Reddit user u/JLOC76 (opens in new tab) is doling out the "ammo boxes can explode" lesson with cold precision, as shown in the above video. They place one down at the top of the stairs in a building that is being invaded and retreat from the stairwell. As an enemy player runs up the steps, they shoot the ammo box, downing two and killing a Most Wanted player. Yes, it's killing with unnecessary extra steps, but it's still killing. I would have grabbed the ammo, but I'm different. 

Warzone never ceases to surprise. As we previously reported, a player realized that you could parry a finishing move with a throwing knife. This is good to know, as I'm sick of getting attacked by that dang bat - but how would that parry work? I don't want to harm the bat, I just don't want to end up in the Gulag because of it.
