But it wouldn’t last though as the Reddit post stated that the game mode crashed about 30 seconds after running into this anomaly.

They state that they think “1 out of 5 doesn’t crash” referencing the fragile connectivity issues that can ruin games of Zombies.

It’s probably one of those rare occurrences that won’t happen too often, but they always look very cool when they happen.
