The Warzone Nuke contract is considered to be one of the hardest challenges to complete in Call of Duty, offering a unique skin to anyone who can pull it off.

For streamer Jamcowl, collecting all the elements and planting the bomb the standard way was a little too easy, so back in June, they decided to complete the first-ever zero-kill Nuke on Urzikstan.

A lot of players assumed this unbelievable achievement couldn't be topped, but the talented player has made a return in Season 3.

This time, it's to pull off a zero-kill Nuke on Rebirth Island, a feat many thought was impossible. Unlike the last run though, this one has caused a little controversy.

First ever zero kill Nuke on Warzone's Rebirth Island


As showcased by the popular Call of Duty account ModernWarzone, Jamcowl has returned with another unbelievable Nuke run, this time on Rebirth Island.

Similar to the zero-kill Nuke on Urzikstan, the streamer managed to collect all the elements and plants in Resurgence while dealing no damage and getting no kills.

This pacifist playstyle is extremely impressive, as even surviving to the late-game is immensely difficult with so many competitors diving down over and over again.

It's worth noting that Jamcowl did get some assistance on this Rebirth run, with an enemy player helping him and even dying to gas willingly at the end, so he didn't get a kill. While still an incredible feat, this is where some of the community have taken issue with the achievement.

Some Warzone fans have slammed the achievement due to "teaming"

Jamcowl's strategy for this Rebirth Nuke run has divided the fanbase, with some congratulating him and others slamming the streamer for "teaming."

In their opinion, this wouldn't have been possible without the lobby helping him and as it's Solos, taking assistance from others is technically against the game rules.

"You can’t claim this is a solo nuke when the lobby was helping them do it, if anything, it’s a teaming nuke," said one user, with another claiming "Huge L clip if you ask me, sick of clowns teaming in solos."

It's a tough one, as the only way to get a true zero-kill Nuke with no help would require the last player to die from gas or fall damage. This is incredibly rare and difficult to achieve without dealing damage. So, while this cannot be considered a perfect solo Nuke, it's still a mind-blowing achievement.
