The automatic animation of Gas Masks has frustrated Warzone players for some time, and a recent example of someone being unable to deploy their parachute and die as a result has highlighted its faults.
There’s always a huge sigh of relief when a Gas Mask emerges from a Supply Chest as you know that you have a few seconds of immunity if you get caught lagging behind in the toxic fumes. It also means you can usually edge someone out in a 1v1 gas battle too.
However, Gas Masks come at the expense of an uncontrollable mechanic that can pretty much interrupt any action you are performing if you’re on the edge of the gas. This can then crucially give your opponent the upper-hand in a 1v1, and will also kill you if you need to jump and use your parachute.
The thought of being in Warzone’s endgame with multiple kills chalked up, and dying to a Gas Mask error would be a sickening feeling – and this is exactly what happened to Reddit user idyllicwolfe.
Deep into a game of Solos, the player was in the final nine players with seven kills to their name. Clinging onto the edge of Verdansk ’84’s storm, they were relatively in control of the situation and showed this by adding another kill to their tally.
Knowing they had the security of a Gas Mask to fall back on, the player stocked up on supplies from the fallen enemy and replenished their armor. To dive back into the battle to try and win, they jumped off the edge of the building they were on to get out of the gas.
At the precise moment they leaped, the Gas Mask’s tolerance depleted, and the auto-animation forcefully removed the mask from the player’s face. This consequently caused the player to just plop to the ground below, killing them instantly.
One comment on the video said, “Gas masks have cost me more than one win, no kidding that.” Whereas another highly-upvoted comment said, “They just make it pop on and off regardless of what you’re doing. We don’t need an uncontrollable animation.”
To go through 20 minutes of gameplay for this to be your undoing would undoubtedly be frustrating. Given that it’s happened to so many players, maybe Raven will re-evaluate its automatic nature and incorporate a manual button for Gas Mask use.

Warzone player discovers “genius” unlimited ammo exploit
A new exploit has been found in Warzone Pacific Season 1 that allows players to farm unlimited ammo with Fully Loaded.
Warzone players have discovered a new exploit that allows squads to spawn unlimited amounts of ammo.
Running out of ammo in any battle royale game can be very detrimental to your survival. Having said that, it won’t be an issue for those in Warzone Pacific Season 1 who are abusing a new exploit that allows players to farm unlimited rounds.
Reddit user AlexandruMacedon put a post up in the Warzone subreddit with a video attached showing the new exploit: “Don’t mind me, i’m just farming bullets.”
In the clip, the player is shown dropping a ridiculous amount of AR ammo by repeatedly picking up a weapon with the Fully Loaded Perk attachment.
First, the player drops all their ammo as well as their weapon with Fully Loaded. After this, they then pick the weapon back up and of course, receive a full stack of ammo in their inventory thanks to the Perk attachment.
Clearly, this is going to be a problem if players start abusing the technique, as Fully Loaded is already a very popular attachment choice anyway. It’s unclear whether or not players will need to use the “Warning Track” STG blueprint used in the video, but regardless we still expect this to be fixed very soon.
One comment even read: “Ooh this will be nerfed very quickly if this post gets popular.” We’ll have to wait and see if this bug becomes a problem or not and if so, how quickly the devs will fix it.

Best DP27 loadout for Warzone Pacific Caldera
Here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to build the best DP27 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.
LMGs have received a ton of attention in Warzone recently and the DP27 could be next up as a high-powered option. Here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to create the best DP27 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.
The Bren was the best long-range weapon in Warzone Pacific for some time but a recent nerf leveled the playing field. The Bren remains an excellent choice but players have come to love what the DP27 has to offer.
Here are all of the attachments and Perks you’ll need to get the most out of this unique LMG.

Best Warzone DP27 loadout attachments
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Kovalevskaya 680mm B02D
- Optic: G16 2.5x
- Stock: ZAC S3 TAK
- Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 5mm Sakura 47 Round Pans
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk: Hardscope
- Perk: Fully Loaded
LMGs have been great in Caldera thanks to their excellent range and accuracy, therefore this loadout will focus on maximizing those key elements at the cost of mobility. For starters, the m1941 Hand Stop, Hardscope Perk, Polymer Grip, and the Kovalevskaya 680mm B02D barrel all contribute to making the DP27 a laser beam with no recoil.
The barrel also increases bullet velocity which makes it kill extremely fast at long-range when paired with the Lengthened ammo type. The 5mm Sakura 47 Round Pans are the magazine of choice because they don’t increase the weapon’s weight like the other options available. With Fully Loaded, you won’t be short on ammo when claiming your loadout.
The G16 x2.5 optic is the standard choice across Warzone Pacific and the MX Silencer will increase accuracy and keep your shots suppressed at the cost of ADS speed. The ZAC S3 TAK stock is a key attachment because it increases the DP27’s naturally low movement speed while also increasing initial accuracy and recoil control.
Best Warzone DP27 Perks & Equipment
- Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Lethal: Throwing Knife
- Tactical: Stim
Cold-Blooded is a must given how common Combat Scout has become across Warzone Pacific and it’ll keep you from being traced. Lastly, Amped will allow for faster weapon swapping which is needed given the LMG’s lack of versatility.
The recent Stim buff makes the Tactical equipment hard to ignore while a Throwing Knife will allow you to confirm kills in close quarters.
How to unlock the DP27 in Warzone Pacific
Luckily, the DP27 is available to players at the early Level of 18 which is great news for players who do not own Vanguard. Warzone players might want to use this trick to level up weapons as quickly as possible.
As of now, there aren’t any upcoming Double XP events scheduled across Warzone and Vanguard but you can always check back here to see when the next one will be.
Best alternatives to Warzone DP27
The Bren remains the top LMG choice for those who have no interest in discovering other LMG options. Also, the Automaton is experiencing a second spell in the spotlight as a recent buff has made it viable once more.
You can also turn to the Type 11 if you do not wish to look outside of the LMG category.
