CoD pros set insane Warzone Quads world record for most kills

One skilled group of CoD players have absolutely smashed the Warzone squads kill record, hitting an incredible milestone for kills in one single match. 

On April 8, Call of Duty: Warzone added four-player squads alongside Modern Warfare’s Season 3 update. This led to a new category in which world records can be set, and one team has set the bar unbelievably high. 

Mark ‘Zepa’ Zepackic is an Australian CoD professional, who currently plies his trade on Oceanic organization Mindfreak. He is already known in the Warzone community for having a hand in the Trios world record, and has now pulled off an equally impressive squads performance.

The game’s scoreboard.

On April 10, Zepa shared a screenshot from a recent Warzone match, showing that he and three teammates put up an incredible 100 kills between them.

The insane number of kills was put up thanks to a combined effort between multiple professional OCE players. Zepa himself dropped 29 kills and nearly 10,000 damage, the highest on the team.

Giancarlo ‘Nimble’ Vagnini, also a pro for Mindfreak, recorded an insane 25 kills, while Lymax put up an insane 32 kills. The squad’s effort was rounded off by another competitive player, micka, who put up 14 kills to take the total to three figures. 

With squads only added two days prior to the record being set, we can expect to see some stark competition emerge.

It’s important to remember that, given Warzone’s Gulag respawn system and the ability to buy dead teammates back, the same player can die multiple times in one match. This probably goes some way to explain how the team managed 100 kills in a game mode with 152 total players. 

Regardless, this should not detract from the insane achievement demonstrated by the Australian pros. You can check out all the current Warzone kill records right here.

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.
