A streamer eager to test the limits of what Call of Duty Warzone can handle collapsed the game by coordinating a barrage of cluster attacks designed to blow up every vehicle in the game simultaneously.
Having agreed to a ceasefire, MarleyThirteen and 149 of his supporters participated in a match with the goal of creating the biggest explosion possible to see what would happen.
The group made several unsuccessful attempts to gather all the vehicles in Verdansk in one place (reckless parking and accidental collisions caused a chain reaction of explosions in a single effort on the airport runway) before finding a suitable location near Promenade East.
“Could we cause a server breakdown by blowing up all the vehicles on the map at once? Well, you better believe we could. “
MarleyThirteen and his followers have published a series of videos in recent weeks in which they try to break the game through various means.
In several videos, the large number of players are shown entering and meeting in the same places, calling more than 100 loads at the same time and looting all the available money before giving it to a single player, with variable results.
Most of the behavior of the 150 or so players caused Warzone to visibly struggle, with frame-skipping animations and visual glitches affecting the landscape and elements.
Activision released Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 2 on February 25, introducing new points of interest in Verdansk, including a shipwreck, missile silos, mysterious Black Ops zombie terminals, and a new dock at the dam.
The current season of Warzone will be the last to take place in Verdansk, as understood by VGC. At the end of Season 2, the Battle Royale game will finally move onto its second themed map from the 1980s, with new locations inspired by the Black Ops series.
The change will be marked by an explosive in-game event designed to transition Warzone’s narrative from the Modern Warfare era to a setting more in keeping with the launch of the most recent premium series.
