Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has only been out for a couple of weeks, but fans of the popular first-person shooter have already pulled off some rather incredible feats when racking up kills in its online multiplayer arenas. Some of the most impressive Call of Duty: Modern Warfare kills so far have involved the throwing knife, though a new one shared on Reddit might be the most insane that we've seen to date.
Posted by Reddit user OhSheThicc, this particular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare throwing knife kill takes place on the new Shoot House map, which has quickly become a fan-favorite due to its small size compared to the other maps in the game. The small size of Shoot House also lends itself well to these kinds of ridiculous kills, though we will be surprised if any future ones top the sheer luck that went into this one.
In the clip, a player throws a throwing knife, seemingly at random, only for it to ricochet off a wall and kill an enemy player who just so happens to jump right into the knife's trajectory. The odds of this happening are incredibly low, which makes this throwing knife kill that much more impressive. It's something fans will need to see to believe.
The popularity of Shoot House is perhaps why Infinity Ward is currently running a Shoot House 24/7 playlist in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and it may very well inspire the studio to make more small-scale maps in the future. But even if fans don't get new small maps, there is some evidence to suggest that some classic, small Call of Duty multiplayer maps will be making their way to the new game soon enough.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare datamining efforts have found evidence that the popular Modern Warfare 2 map Rust will be added to the game, in addition to the fan favorite Call of Duty 4 map Shipment. Many other older maps have also been found in Modern Warfare's files, though it's unclear which maps will be added to the game and which ones won't make the cut.
In the meantime, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fans can continue battling it out on the Shoot House map and attempt to top this insane throwing knife kill.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
