It's been a week since Warzone's Haunting of Verdansk update added new frights to the game, and players still forget they exist. Now, one Call of Duty: Warzone player gets scared to death by a Halloween jumpscare.
We're certain this isn't the first time a player has been scared to death by a Warzone jumpscare, and it won't be the last. However, it's still a hilarious clip to get to see, and we're very grateful for the fact that this Reddit user was recording.
Warzone player ShoopDoG uploaded a clip to the game's official subreddit, showing his dramatic reaction to the game's jumpscare. For those out of the loop, opening supply crates in the battle royale currently leads to a chance for players to encounter a visual and auditory jumpscare.
A flashing image appears on the player's screen, accompanied by a screaming sound effect. It's perfectly harmless in most cases, but not, it seems, in this one.
Warzone Player Scared to Death by Halloween Jumpscare
While the jumpscare doesn't do any damage itself, that's not to say that it's not capable of killing you. Besides the fact that it's incredibly distracting and can lead to enemies getting the drop on you, there's another way the fright can cause damage.
This is demonstrated by ShoopDoG on Reddit, who gets scared to death by Warzone's Halloween jumpscare. Climbing to the top of a large ladder, the user opens a supply box without thinking.
When the jumpscare pops up, the player is so shocked that they step backward, firing their weapon in surprise. Unfortunately, this leads to them falling back down to the ground floor.
Too scared to even grab the ladder, the player plummets to the ground and dies. And so Warzone's Halloween jumpscares claim another victim.
One commenter points out that it's now possible to pull your parachute in this particular area now. Even though ShoopDoG wasn't aware of this fact, they were too frightened by the ghastly encounter to react quickly enough.
Already, Warzone's Haunting of Verdansk developers have refused to turn down the spooks. However, players that can't stand to be scared won't have to wait long for them to be gone.
After all, the Halloween update finishes in just a few more days. On November 3rd, it'll be business as usual for Call of Duty: Warzone.
Despite this fact, many players hope that Warzone's Zombie Royale game mode will be a permanent addition to the game.
