Players have discovered a Call of Duty: Warzone 2 glitch that lets you level up a weapon from baseline to maximum level in a single match: and just as quickly developer Raven Software stepped in and crushed it. It’s all thanks to the exponential XP reward that can come from repeating one of the in-game contracts, Safecracker, which is a simple mission that nearly doubles the XP reward every time one is completed.
Funnily enough, this is a recurring Call of Duty bug: you could almost call it a launch bug. I remember one in particular that involved spamming Supply Run missions, but essentially it was the same thing every time, a certain mission that exponentially increased the XP reward the more you played it.
This one involves finding a safecracker contract on the minimap, completing it, then rinsing and repeating. It’s as simple as that: Youtuber IceManIsaac discovered the trick and, as shown in his video, the amount awarded goes through the roof every time, and by the fifth or sixth go-around you should be earning enough to get your equipped weapon maximum.
In addition to instant XP, these missions also reward huge amounts of money if you break through this way (b’dum tsh). You can also use the money to buy armor plates from buy stations: armor plates are the cheapest item in the shop, but the key here is that for some reason you get weapon XP for using the shop.
A few hours ago, Raven Software announced that ‘Most Wanted’ is contracting are temporarily disabled in the game, and this seems to have solved the problem for now. Judging by past experience, another will pop up soon enough. This particular type of exploit has popped up before in OG Warzone and COD multiplayer modes, patched quickly without exception, and then another appears. For developers Infinity Ward and Raven Software, it should feel a bit like a game with influencers.
