Infinite Cluster Strike exploit in Warzone is wiping out lobbies

A bizarre Warzone exploit has been found which is seemingly giving players unlimited Cluster Strike killstreaks, possibly through a hack or just a glitch.

Killstreaks have become a staple of Call of Duty multiplayer modes and fans were generally happy to see they would also feature in Modern Warfare’s battle royale, Warzone.

These Warzone killstreaks, which include the likes of UAVs and Precision Airstrikes, can only be found at a Buy Station and are quite situational, as they can cost players a significant amount of cash with each use.

Warzone’s Buy Stations offer plenty of unique killstreaks for players to use in-game.

However, it seems as if some players have found a way around paying for their killstreaks, after it was revealed that an infinite Cluster Strike exploit had been plaguing some matches.

The Cluster Strike killstreak allows players to mark a location on the map before it fires a barrage of missiles down on the surrounding area. They can be particularly useful in targeting enemies on a roof or in the late-game in a tight circle.

Popular YouTuber jackfrags was among the players to fall victim to someone with this bizarre exploit and highlighted just how overpowered it can be.

Near the end of one of his latest matches, jackfrags noticed that an unusual amount of Cluster Strikes had been called in near him as he was trying to make his way to the final circle. The missiles appear to rain down endlessly.

The YouTuber was then sniped out his Tactical Rover and, despite his efforts with a self-revive kit, was quickly finished by the oncoming barrage of missiles.

After spectating the rest of his game and watching this unusual Cluster Strike exploit, he claimed that it was quite likely that the opponent was using hacks to win the game.

“It seems like they’ve just got unlimited Cluster Strikes or something, I think that guy is a hacker and I reckon that shot he took was an aimbot,” he added.

While it is still unclear just what caused this infinite killstreak glitch, it can be devastating in-game and it is likely that the Warzone devs will be looking to get a fix rolled out ASAP.

While November for many might have marked the arrival of Black Ops Cold War as the newest installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Warzone was still insanely popular, and it looks as though players have been using some different weapons, too.

Over time, certain weapons have become more or less popular as the Warzone meta shifts, and while some weapons seem to be mainstays in most loadouts, such as the Kilo 141 assault rifle or MP5 submachine gun, there’s actually quite a lot of variation among players.

With the December 10 Warzone update fast approaching, and with players expecting to see a major Black Ops Cold War-themed mix-up headed to the battle royale, we might see the meta weapons changing very quickly soon.

So, before players start bringing their AUG tactical rifles and Krig 6 AR into Verdansk, let’s take a look at the most popular Warzone weapons in November.

Warzone’s most popular weapons in November saw some changes, including the CR-56 AMAX climbing up the rankings.

So, we have seen some interesting shifts in the most popular Warzone weapons in September. The Kar98k marskman rifle has officially become players’ favorite sniper rifle, overtaking the HDR which falls out of the top five, being replaced by the CR-56 AMAX assault rifle.

We’ve also seen the Origin shift out of the top eight for the first time since shotguns became dominant meta weapons, meaning there are no shotties until the R9-0 in 12th — so maybe they’re not as popular as you think!

It will be interesting to see how Black Ops Cold War integration affects these stats but, luckily, we don’t have to wait too long to find out.
