Warzone: Hackers Run Rampage During Twitch Rivals - Community Calls For Activision To Take Action

Call of Duty Warzone has been one of the biggest success stories for the franchise in recent memory.

While the game is fantastic; there has been a consistent issue since it released.

This, of course, is the ample amount of hackers and cheaters within the game and it has taken a turn for the worst.

During a $250,000 Twitch Rivals event, it appears multiple hackers were in players' lobbies and some professional players have had enough.

Here's the story! 

 

Problems

During the January 22nd iteration of Warzone Twitch Rivals, multiple players were found to be cheating the during the event.

This is due to the fact that Warzone has little to no anti-cheat within the current state of the game, and this has been an issue since it released.

There were multiple acquisitions towards Metzy_B, and there were multiple clips where at times, it seemed as he was cheating.

Twitch eventually disqualified Metzy from the event, and 'Tommey' a member of 100 Thieves was granted access by Metzy to go through his computer to see if there was any cheats. 

Tommey noted the following: 

Fully understand the hate I’m receiving and it’s deserved. There just wasn’t enough to go by to give my opinion on @METZY_B, from the stuff I saw I believed something was off but there just wasn’t enough to go as far as it did and to have everyone saying he cheated.

While this eventful night for Warzone was just another issue in the long list for Warzone and anti-cheat. It appears it has drifted some of the top content creators away from Warzone events.

A clip captured by Jake Lucky has noted that Symfuhny is now finished with competing in Warzone events until a better anti-cheat is installed.

For now, we will have to wait and see if Activision takes these cries for help seriously. 

Warzone has been released for almost a year and it appears that the issues keep getting worse.
