9-year-old breaks tooth in disastrous Warzone failure

A 9-year-old may have bitten off more than he could chew after knocking out a tooth while competing in Warzone.

Although this is an M rated game, you will likely find players under the age of 17 trying to score wins in Call of Duty battle royale Warzone.

In addition to the strong language and suggestive themes, it seems the ESRB forgot to include “choking hazard” in its description.

Unlike traditional sports where there are a lot of injuries, it’s not really common to see players needing medical treatment for gaming, but that’s exactly what happened to a young Warzone player .

As one user on Reddit revealed, their nephew was playing Warzone when suddenly disaster struck and he ended up breaking a tooth.

Using a microphone to communicate with teammates or trashy opponents is a common part of the modern gaming experience, but it can have unexpected downsides.

In a Reddit post, user ‘Appropriate_Try_9946’ posted a message he received from what appears to be their relative explaining how their nephew damaged his tooth while playing Warzone.

“I don’t even know how it happens, but [redacted] broke one of his new permanent teeth while playing video games because he accidentally bit the microphone,” reads the text. “He’s hysterical and I tell him it’s going to be fixed, but would that be a fake new tooth?”

Have you ever injured yourself while playing Warzone?

Warzone players were quick to respond to the story, remarking how strongly they believed this incident to be real based on past experiences.

“With some of the death communications I get from little kids, I wouldn’t be surprised by that at all,” one player commented.

According to the original poster, the child used to scream nonstop while playing the game: “Swearing wasn’t a problem, but screaming was.” My friends and I had it toned as it should be. He doesn’t talk to anyone he doesn’t know, he only uses a headset with his friends and family.

Hopefully the young player will be fine and see a dentist getting ready for the launch of Warzone 2 later this year.
