A Call of Duty Warzone player has managed to help a teammate out in unusual circumstances.

Reddit user gungachief (opens in new tab) shared a clip of them helping their friend win a gulag match by striking a claymore with a rock from the upper tier, which then managed to take out his friend's opponent. You can witness the clever tactic in the clip below.

Other players praised the skillful move in the comments of the post, joking that gungachief’s friend now owes them “a couple of self revives for that” (opens in new tab), and that the other player “must have raged so hard when he saw the kill cam” (opens in new tab). The kill even started a debate in the comments on whether the tactic should be allowed to exist in the gulag (opens in new tab) or not. 

This is just one of many impressive Call of Duty Warzone gulag kills that have appeared online recently, however, we aren’t sure that it tops the streamer who got a gulag win using a recorder. Twitch streamer DeanoBeano (opens in new tab), who was responsible for the musical playstyle, is known for uploading video game playthroughs using unorthodox controllers. This even includes using a pair of Donkey Konga bongos (opens in new tab) to play Black Ops Cold War.

The gulag has been a popular part of Warzone since it launched last year. That's mainly down to the fact that it gives fallen soldiers a way back into the fight, piting players up against each other in 1v1 matches to fight for the chance to respawn after dying in the main match. And now it turns out we've been wasting our time hurling rocks at players waiting with us rather than explosives in the match itself.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
