Warzone server collapses as players attempt to stop the Caldera tram


Warzone has been split again in two as Call of Duty’s most daring battle royale mythbusters have tried everything to stop the Caldera streetcar on its tracks.

Six months have passed since YouTube mythbusters’DefendTheHouse‘brought Warzone to his knees. To call 100 drops of loading at a time was the first server breakout experience and now the team has just found another way to overwhelm the game.

With the introduction of Caldera came a whole new feature. Rather than a full-size train crossing the BR map, the Pacific Island instead has a small tram system.

This tram immediately caught the eye for one main reason: it seems unstoppable. If you are in front of the moving vehicle, you are lining up for destruction. It’s that simple.

So, to test the limits of this new addition to Caldera, DefendTheHouse threw everything into one huge custom lobby. Turns out they broke Warzone again in the process.


There is nothing that can stop the tram in Caldera.

After a few initial tests with vehicles proved unsuccessful, the Mythbusters called on dozens of community members to join in the experiment.

The first was a simple test with each operator lined up to try to stop the tram. The autonomous vehicle was not set up at all because it crushed all the players in its path.

Next comes the more ambitious test. With virtually every vehicle in the hall neatly positioned on the tram tracks, it looked like the tram would finally meet its builder.

After a few initial explosions when the streetcar made contact, Warzone began to collapse. Vehicles gradually began to cross the streetcar, and soon after, players were frozen in the sky as they attempted to redeploy.

Warzone reverted to being a PS1 game when the servers crashed.

“Woah, did this hall just collapse?” They asked as time stood still in Caldera. Everything was stuck in place and the character models were randomly tracing back a few generations to weird PlayStation 1 textures.

A few short seconds passed before their screens went black and they were returned to the menu. Their antics led to another full-blown server crash in Warzone.

So even though the tram itself did not stop, everything else did. Thus, there is no clearer evidence that the Caldera tram is completely unstoppable.

Be sure to watch the full video on the official DefendTheHouse YouTube channel and keep your eyes peeled for more groundbreaking testing.
