The Call of Duty player-base wants Infinity Ward to address Warzone’s growing problem with hackers, who have become more prevalent in the game since launch.

From speed hacks to aimbot, Warzone is becoming another victim in a long line of battle royales that is being overrun by players who use them. Previously, games like Fortnite, PUBG, Apex Legends, Battlefield Firestorm, and Blackout have been soured by hackers.

To prevent Warzone from being the next battle royale on a downward spiral due to cheaters, players want IW to put a focus on thwarting the hackers who are “flourishing” in some regions.

Putting the problem into perspective, Reddit user ‘notanaijin’ said that these players are “running rampant” in their local server.

“I’m playing on Asian servers because I live in Japan and cheaters are running rampant here (Chinese cheaters in particular),” they said. “People’s aim are staying glued to my head in the kill cams and I’m sure they can see through walls as they prefire around corners when I’m not making a sound.”

People in the thread pointed out the Asian servers’ infamous reputation of being a hotspot for a large portion of hackers in many other games and make them “unplayable.”

The problem might not be as overtly prevalent across other regions, though people report that some form of cheater routinely shows up in their matches.

“For me, one in three games I get killed by [cheaters],” ‘Darkcount2011’ said, outlining how many hackers they come across over their matches. “Like obviously killed. Watching my death replay and just snapping on my head without recoil. Reported over 20 cheaters right now.”

It’s got to a point where some hackers are poking fun at the holes in IW’s anti-cheat as they rampage through the server. A video by user ‘ItzNickM80’ shows how they got eliminated by a player named ‘NiceAntiCheat’ who was mowing players down on their way to the final circles.

Needless to say, nothing frustrates players of any game more than running into cheaters and hackers, and with Warzone still being the talk of the town in the online gaming community, the pressure is now on Infinity Ward to address these issues before they start affecting the game’s success.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Warzone’s Halloween event has given the map a major spooky makeover.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
