For those absolute titans of Warzone, dropping a nuke on players is the ultimate squeeze out of every session.

It's the main reason why a lot of players even bother to turn up to Warzone.

But after Rebirth Island arrived, players have found completing Champions Quest near-impossible, and have begun cheesing ways around it.

First thing first, in order to unlock the Champions Quest, you need to either win 5 games in a row or win 30 games total in the game, which is had enough on its own.

However, the Quest itself is stunningly difficult, as the contract demands that you finish the quest in 10 minutes flat. This might seem doable at the start of a match, but the quest is split into four elements, and these only spawn in after eight minutes, giving you just 120 seconds to actually complete the tasks.

The countdown does offer up ways of extending your allotted time, such as getting kills in the waiting period or buying certain equipment, but there appears to be an overwhelming lack of seconds to get through these ridiculous missions.

And it's not like the Call of Duty community to begin finding exploits to work around difficult Easter eggs, right? Right?

Already, players have found ways to skirt around some of the challenges to get through the Champions Quest missions in enough time.

According to popular leaker "BobNetwork", there are ways of activating certain contracts in the right order to complete the nuke.

Well, "complete" is probably the wrong term here, as the nuke won't actually explode using this method, but you will get all of the other rewards for completing it, such as the exclusive Operator skin.

It does only come as a halfway house in terms of doing the mission, as players will really want to see Rebirth Island get melted by nuclear bombs.
