A hilarious glitch in the new 'Call of Duty' game has created a murderous office chair

ActivisionDeath by … chair?

No one would suspect the chair, but it was indeed the murderer.

When a “Call of Duty” player assaulted an unsuspecting office chair during a multiplayer match, they assuredly didn’t expect the chair to hit back – but that’s exactly what happened.

The results, sadly, were fatal. And there’s video evidence to prove it:

You can commit death on the spinny chairs on St. Petrograd fromr/modernwarfare

“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” players will no doubt be familiar with the St. Petrograd map from multiplayer. That’s where the video clip above is pulled from, and the map features the seemingly benign/actually extremely deadly office chairs.

As you might imagine, the chairs aren’t intended to cause instant death. Instead, it’s a glitch that went undiscovered in the game’s development process.

The game’s developer, Infinity Ward, has yet to issue a statement regarding the glitch, and the game’s publisher, Activision, didn’t respond immediately to a request for comment.

For now, if you’re playing “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” multiplayer, do yourself a favour and stay away from those murderous office chairs.
