Call of Duty League pro and three-time world champion Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter called out an opponent in Vanguard ranked play, accusing them of hacking with aim-lock during their match.

Crimsix is considered by many to be the GOAT of Call of Duty. With three world championships and almost 40 major championships won, he has proven himself to be one of the best players in the game for the last decade, and has come up against the best too.

Since he’s grown used to playing against those who can get insane kills or make the high IQ plays, he’s also become astute at spotting players who are maybe just a little too good, even by Call of Duty League standards.

That’s exactly what happened during a Vanguard ranked stream, when he called out opponent ‘MAGS’ for what he deemed to be suspicious plays. He hit some flawless shots and appeared to be watching players through walls, leaving Crimsix with no doubt that the player was hacking.

He called it “shameless scenes,” saying that MAGS was “aim-locking confirmed” during their matchup.

Howeverm, MAGS himself responded to Crimsix’s claims, denying the accusations and even offering a PC check.

“Once again PC check anytime,” he said. “I offered you, simply jumped over a box and you ran up the alley. If I cheated, I would have won the game.”

Crim went on to joke that even Atlanta FaZe’s McArthur ‘Cellium’ Jovel, who ranks 2nd in the CoD League for K/D, would’ve missed at least one bullet.

There’s no categorical proof that MAGS was using any cheats, but Crimsix himself is convinced that they’re not playing fair.

With the RICOCHET anti-cheat still operating in Vanguard and Warzone, if MAGS is cheating, it’ll likely be detected before long.
