As reported earlier this week, some users had been using the exploit to infinitely heal themselves with Stim packs while in the gas, virtually guaranteeing a win.
The large number of social media comments complaining about the exploit suggested that it had become a widespread problem in Warzone matches.
Following its promise of a fix on Friday, developer Infinity Ward has now solved the exploit, it said.
“Thank you again for your support and patience while we worked to resolve this issue,” it said on Twitter. “We’re happy to say that a fix has been deployed and we’ll continue to monitor your feedback.”
Earlier this week Infinity Ward released a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch to fix another exploit for an issue where players could survive in the gas while on the subway fast travel system.
The same patch significantly nerfed the popular SP-R 208 rifle, which had been criticised by many players.
Offering a one-shot kill to the upper chest, neck, or head in multiplayer, the weapon had proven a popular choice among players since its release given that it’s widely perceived to have been overpowered.
Activision launched the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta this week. It will run from October 8-9 (PS4 pre-order customers), October 10-12 (all PS4 players), October 15-16 (all PS4 players and Xbox One/PC pre-order customers), and October 17-19 (all players).
