CoD Mobile test server reveals The Gulag could be added soon

Call of Duty: Warzone’s Gulag might soon be making its way to CoD Mobile in season seven, after players noticed it pop up on the test server.

Since Warzone released back in March, the Gulag mode has become a phenomenon. Unlike usual battle royales where, if you die, you’re out, the Gulag gives players a second chance to respawn. 

Though, the intense 1v1 mode also allows players to get bragging rights as well as the momentum of respawning for free. With Call of Duty Mobile taking some of the best weapons, maps, and features from the most popular CoD titles, it looks as if the Gulag could be following in the footsteps of Rust, Crash, and Standoff.

The Gulag has become a phenomenon since the launch of Warzone.

On May 20, the season seven update for CoD Mobile hit the test servers so that the developers could get some kinks ironed out before it goes live to the wider game.

As players were downloading the new update, many noted that Gulag had appeared alongside the season map, Saloon, in the download list. Seeing how popular the map has become thanks to the Warzone, the excitement for its addition to CoD Mobile was immediately kicked into overdrive.

Gulag’s appearance on the download list sent hype into overdrive.

Now, for anyone who players CoD Mobile and hasn’t played the test server update, this doesn’t mean that the Gulag will be coming to the Isolated battle royale map.

Instead, it looks like the Gulag will be joining the map rotation for the previously announced 1v1 mode. Though, if there is a way to work it into the battle royale mode, the developers will probably consider it. 

Regardless of whether or not the Gulag joins the battle royale mode, CoD Mobile’s seventh season is lining up to take things to the next level anyway.

The battle royale map is expanding, new maps are joining the mix, and players will finally be able to grab the HBR for free.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
