The dreaded Stim bug is back in Call of Duty: Warzone.
Below you can see a game clip from Call of Duty: Warzone, which shows someone falling victim to an opponent using the infamous STIM error. In short, the STIM error allows a player to continuously inject themselves with STIM, an element that immediately heals the player, so that they can theoretically survive forever in the invasive gas on the Warzone map.

It is not just this one instance of someone who falls victim to the Stim error either. Below you can see a player running around in the gas and looking for the opponent when their health is constantly reduced to zero. After their deaths, the game is over, and the victorious player takes home the Warzone victory, having been able to hide in the gas and repeatedly heal himself with unlimited Stims.
January 2021, and there’s still a way for rats to hide in the gas forever and get free winnings? from r / CODWarzone
When you check the comments below the Warzone subreddit post above, it is clear that this is an obvious source of frustration for society at large. The endless Stim exploitation first rose to prominence in October 2020, before being patched out shortly after by developer Infinity Ward. When it comes to unexplained returns, it’s right up there with Emperor Palpatine in The Rise of Skywalker.
By surfing the net, it seems that the exploitation has returned about two months later in December 2020, and again allows players to hide out and survive in the gas for easy winnings. Now, in January 2021, the Stim error has returned for the third time, and it seems to be wreaking havoc among the game’s community. In addition to the recent controversy over DMR nerves, it has been a rocky start to the year for Warzone.
