Released earlier this week, the Verdansk ‘84 map is the latest update in the Warzone game mode. The exploit allows players to travel around under the map where they are both invincible and invisible to other players.
Using the glitch, players can shoot up through the floor, leading to easier kills. You can see the exploit in action in the video below.
Players pass through the floor using a glitch known as clipping. By finding an exploitable part of the map, players can force their way out of the playable zone and underneath the map.
Fans have been vocal online about the exploit, directly mentioning the official Call Of Duty Twitter account.

Cheaters have used similar exploits in the past. This clip from Twitter was posted March 2020 and shows a very similar glitch being used to gain an advantage.

The exploit arrives a few days after one of the largest Call Of Duty events to date. The Verdansk map changed permanently earlier this week when a nuke went off in a global event.
The ensuing explosion set off a time reversal cut scene, which sent players back to 1984. Verdansk ‘84 updates the existing Warzone map with new points of interest and a new gulag.
Activision has not yet commented on the exploit or announced a fix.
Sega launched a countdown website this bracing for a reveal on ‘Judgment Day’ on May 7, 7:00 PST / 15:00 BST.
The website appeared on Friday (April 23), coinciding with the remastered release of Judgment on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia.
