It might come as no surprise to many of you, but the Warzone Stim Glitch is back.

By now, Warzone players are used to coming up against the odd cheater. It's, unfortunately, a fairly commonplace experience.

However, more recently, a notorious exploit has made a comeback and players are questioning whether it was ever solved in the first place.


The Exploit In Action

Although the Warzone Stim Glitch has been around for a long time, it became a notable issue in the community around October 2020.

Ever since then, despite multiple attempts to suppress it, the exploit has continued to pop up.

Recently, Redditor u/thewolfofwestoz rediscovered the Stim Glitch while playing a game of Warzone.

Below, you can see the clip they uploaded showcasing it:

It seems as if the way they have achieved it is by somehow combining NVG and a "Throw Back" to get infinite Stims.


Remove The Stim?

After it's most-recent appearance, Redditors are calling on Warzone developers Raven Software to remove the Stim completely from the game until the exploit is resolved.

The Stim is a Tactical Grenade which players can use to quickly regenerate health in-game.

Players have repeatedly found a way to exploit this useful Tactical with infinite regeneration.


This means that players can theoretically stay alive forever outside Warzone's closing circle.

Despite being repeatedly patched out of Warzone, this exploit keeps finding a way to come back.

On top of calls to remove the Stim completely, others have suggested adding a forced cooldown to the Tactical Grenade.

Others have also suggested that Raven Software add additional damage to the gas in order to counter the near-instantaneous healing of the Stim.

It seems logical to assume that at some point in the next couple of days, another hotfix patch will be released in an effort to combat this.

However, you have to wonder as to whether this will be enough to put an end to people finding this exploit and using it to essentially ruin other people's games.
