A Call of Duty Twitch streamer was caught red-handed using wallhacks in Modern Warfare, resulting in a swift ban from the platform.

In a classic tale of a streamer accidentally revealing that they are in fact cheating while playing, streamer ‘TwistedBear’ seemed totally unaware that all of his viewers could see his wallhacks on the broadcast.

Cheating has become a prevalent issue in Modern Warfare and in Warzone, the battle royale component of the latest Call of Duty release. Although fans are often suspicious of certain streamers, it’s rare to catch one so obviously in the act.

Cheaters use wallhacks and aimbots to get an unfair advantage in Modern Warfare.

Although Activision and developers Infinity Ward have taken steps to curb the rise of hackers, it’s a constant war of attrition, as the cheats find new ways to bypass the protections.

There has been speculation that a significant increase in hacking has occurred in the game’s fourth season. Hackers have apparently found a way to get around the two-factor authentication requiring a mobile number to set up a new account.

For this streamer though, it seems as if this was taking place on their main account. As the clip shows, he can see enemy players’ exoskeletons through walls, anywhere on the map, even on a player way back in their spawn.

This clip quickly went viral, doing the rounds on social media and Reddit — and so it wasn’t long before it came across Twitch’s attention. Unsurprisingly, TwistedBear’s channel is no longer available.

Unfortunately, viewers never got the satisfaction of seeing TwistedBear realize his error. One of the most infamous hacking scenarios caught on Twitch went viral after a CS:GO streamer blamed her friend ‘Clara’ for installing the hacks.

The streamer, MissQGemini, was also using wallhacks, before realizing to her dismay that all of her viewers could see the embarrassing truth.

Presumably, Infinity Ward will also be issuing a ban to TwistedBear’s Modern Warfare account, which should stop him ever ruining matches by cheating again.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
