Cheaters have been a serious issue in Call of Duty: Warzone, with hackers using exploits like auto-aim, night-vision goggles–and in extreme cases–ending matches when there are still players fighting for a win. Of course, this takes the fun away for everyone else, and has even caused one of the devs to feel like his “best work” has been ruined.
However, it seems major content creators are getting sick of the cheating too. YouTuber Jack “CouRage” Dunlop has faced off against cheaters, and in a recent stream with other Warzone streaming personalities NICKMERCS, TimTheTatman, and Cloakzy, the four managed to get some hackers into their game. The hackers got what they deserved.
Using his influence within the Warzone circuit, Dunlop tweeted to Activision and Raven Software (devs of Warzone) to take action against the players who obviously cheating.
“Hey Activision and Raven Software, I think it would be extremely beneficial to have someone watch our live-streams and ban blatant cheaters on the spot,” Dunlop tweeted. Currently, there are two cheaters joining our lobbies and ruining our Warzone experience with about 150,000 live viewers watching.”
Just a few hours later, Raven banned a player who was cheating during this stream. This brought joy to both Dunlop and TimTheTatman who were spectating this player at the time. The clip below has some foul language, just as a warning.
This did create a discussion about influencers in Warzone receiving better treatment by developers, it still ended with another cheater being removed.
In other Call of Duty news, the mid-season is fast-approaching, with new ’80s Action Heroes DLC launching on May 20th. It includes Rambo and Die Hard content heading to the game, which is Activision’s first licensed product arriving to their titles.
