What was Warzone’s Superman jump?

Call of Duty: Warzone's strange super jump glitch came back with Verdansk '84, and here's how it used to work.

Players dropping in to the new Verdansk 84 map

 This Superman jump glitch has since been patched in Warzone. However, this guide will be helpful and updated if this glitch, or a similar method crops back up in the future.

The strange glitch that would give people a “Superman jump” in Call of Duty: Warzone resurfaced again back in Season 3 of the Black Ops Cold War era. The oddity wasn’t all that common, but players were scrambling to find the method of how to perform it. Why? Because it could help you make enormous leaps to different rooftops, and see you travel much further than normal if you could use it intentionally.

Variations of the Superman jump Warzone glitch had been around for a while, and some players figured out methods of routinely performing them – although most ended up being patched in subsequent updates, this one on the iconic Verdansk ’84 map included. So what exactly did a Superman jump look like, and how could you pull it off yourself?

What was a Warzone Superman jump?

The Superman jump Warzone glitch involved players jumping in a certain way from the edge of a tall building and triggering the freefall animation you experience when jumping from the plane at the start of a match.

This allowed you to cover farther distances than a regular jump, and fall more quickly before having to pull your parachute, making you a less easy target as you fell through the air.

How to Superman jump in Warzone

While you can’t pull off a Superman jump in Warzone anymore, all you used to have to do was a sequence of movements very quickly – and have a stroke of good luck – for it to come off.

Firstly, this only worked on buildings tall enough for the ‘Deploy Parachute’ message to appear, so you had to find somewhere nice and high. Then, you’d have to mantle up onto the ledge of the building, if there was one, and engage your tactical sprint to start running off the edge.

As soon as you had hit the edge, you would then aim your weapon and flick your aim to the right, then press jump. Immediately after that, you could deploy and then cut your parachute as quickly as possible to trigger the freefall animation. If the drop was quite big, you would have to remember to redeploy your parachute at the end so that you didn’t eliminate yourself with fall damage.

This wasn’t an easy glitch to pull off, but with some practice, you could nail the Superman jump in Warzone and use it to your advantage, especially considering how crucial movement was – and still is – in the battle royale. Remember though, this bug has since been patched, though there’s certainly a possibility that a new method will rear its head in the future.
