Black Ops 4 cheaters are abusing an infuriating Skulker glitch, as pro player KiLLa found out

It’s generally accepted that cheating in video games on a modern console is virtually impossible due to the numerous restrictions on things like third-party software.

However, when an in-game exploit is discovered there is very little that can be done to stop individuals from abusing it until the developers of said game are able to patch it.

Unfortunately, such an exploit has been discovered in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and it totally ruins the game for anyone playing against the person that decides to abuse it.

The movement glitch, which is linked to the Skulker perk, allows players to slide around in a crouched position at an alarming speed, making them virtually impossible to hit or play against.

Former Call of Duty world champion Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss fell foul of a handful of the players using the glitch during a recent Twitch stream and was clearly gobsmacked by what he was witnessing:

Unfortunately, it didn’t end there for KiLLa as the players in question continued to abuse the infuriating glitch in the following game.

“There is no way this kid is serious!” the veteran player fumed as he died to one of the cheaters yet again.

Although not ‘hacking’ per se, it seems unlikely that players abusing such a clear exploit will escape the wrath of Treyarch, the game’s developers.

The issue has also been raised on the Black Ops 4 subreddit, with users claiming that it can only be done with the help of a teammate and reminding players that encounter people using the glitch to report them through the Black Ops 4 menu.

We will not be sharing information on how to repeat this exploit and advise everyone not use it. Doing so could result in a game ban.

While Treyarch have not yet commented on the matter officially, it seems likely that the issue will be fixed in the game’s next update.

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
