There’s a regular ole’ door that can insta-kill you in Call of Duty: Warzone following the game’s recent update for Season 4.
Activision’s popular battle royale received its Season 4 update last week and it brought with it a new Gulag, new limited-time events, a Zombies Outbreak region, and more. It also made an otherwise boring door a stone-cold killer.
This news comes by way of Kotaku, which reports that this mysterious killer door can be found in the Salt Mine area on the recently-revamped Verdansk map in Warzone. It is, by all accounts, just a standard door, not at all unlike the hundreds of other doors found on the map.
However, if a player gets too close to the door, it will instantly down you. Redditor Rxelik seemingly discoverd the bug first and posted a video showcasing what happens when a player gets too close to the door on the official Warzone subreddit. Getting killed by the door is as easy as it sounds: get close to it and you will immediately drop into the battle roylale’s bleeding-out stance.
Because it doesn’t completely kill you, a teammate can revive you, but the downed player will need to drop back away from the door to avoid a deadly door cycle.
Players on the subreddit are trying to determine what might be happening — Rxelik, who discovered the killing door, is wondering if the door was previously a door that opened before the update. It’s not currently an openable door at the moment and redditor JoPOWz responded to Rxelik and said that perhaps the deadly door and the openable door that was previously there swtiched locations.
Some players think this might have to do with the new red doors introduced to the game with this update, which act as a fast travel-like system that allows players to enter through a red door in one location and exit in a different location.
Considering this door can take a player with full armor and health down in an instant, this door is now in the running for best player in Warzone. If this door isn’t careful, though, it’s likely to join the 500,000 Warzone cheaters who have been banned from the game since its launch last year.
None of the development teams behind Warzone like co-developer Raven Software have addressed this door at the time of this writing. While waiting to see what might come of this killing door, read about everything added to the battle royale in the Warzone Season 4 update and then read about how a new Call of Duty game set to release this year is reportedly called Vanguard and set in World War 2.
