Invincible “God Mode” hackers are sabotaging Warzone matches

A Warzone match that came down to six players was heavily one-sided after the remaining squad was convinced they were up against a “God Mode” hacker who couldn’t even be shot at.

It didn’t take long after at all for cheaters to infiltrate Modern Warfare’s servers. From the game’s Multiplayer component to the free-to-play battle royale, there’s been a heavy presence of people hacking in numerous matches.

Everything from the typical wallhacks to speed hacks have been employed by Warzone cheaters, but sometimes the game’s glitches can make it seem like a OP hacker is taking control of a game.

Rarely taking down the typical cheater – resulting in an instant feeling almost as gratifying as winning a Warzone match. Though that wasn’t to be for user ‘The___Shadow’ who thinks they encountered a new type of hacker all together.

After taking the high-ground on a building in Torsk Bloc, the three-member squad felt comfortable about their chances of winning out in the Warzone match, especially when someone was walking on the ground being pushed in by the closing gas.

The___Shadow and their friends immediately noticed something was amiss when their crosshairs were dead-locked on the lone survivor, but the shots weren’t actually landing.

New Type of Hacker? God Mode, no hit markers, and protection from gas. Really dampens the mood to get 2nd to a hacker. Enjoy my squad freaking out on coms from CODWarzone

Instead, the player on the floor was unphased by the reign of gunfire only to return pinpoint accurate hits.

Even when the gas was swarming into blanket the scene, did the player just casually gun down the squad.

“New Type of Hacker?” Shadow surmised. “God Mode, no hit markers, and protection from gas. Really dampens the mood to get 2nd to a hacker.”’

More players reported coming across the same kind of player where they couldn’t be shot at or die from Warzone’s gas.

Shooting at the Warzone player didn’t register hitmarks that would usually land.

Though some people suspected it had to do with a respawn glitch that has been popping up from time to time in Warzone.

“This happened to me last night,” user ‘freboto’ said. “I became invincible after a glitch where I was not able to jump out of the plane. I died and did not go to the gulag. When my teammates got me back in from a buy station I was invincible but didn’t realize before the final circle.”

In either case, this would be something that the Infinity Ward devs patch up to prevent more Warzone matches from being sabotaged by these sorts of instances.

Surviving as one of  Warzone’s fleshy undead can be a little tricky in the new Zombie Royale mode, but these tips should have you ripping and tearing your way to victory in no time. 

Warzone’s Halloween festivities are well underway and players have been busy unleashing their inner beast when playing the terrifyingly good LTM, Zombie Royale. The frozen fields of Verdansk have been cloaked in darkness and squads will need to work together if they wish to survive the horrors that await them. In this mode, dead operators skip the Gulag and instead come back as nightmarish zombies. While in this new undead form, players drop all their current equipment and perks.

If you wish to ever see your human form again, you’ll need to use your unique abilities to kill any players that dare to walk amongst the undead. While Zombie Royale’s reanimated corpses may have access to some incredibly potent attacks, they can be killed incredibly easily if you’re not careful. In order to help you get to grips with your newfound zombie form, we’ve put together a handy survival guide that should help you secure more kills.

Warzone’s Zombies have access to some incredibly powerful abilities.

Passive abilities

Warzone’s zombies aren’t your standard shambling corpses – in fact, they have incredible agility. Their passive ability gives every undead player faster movement speed and stronger melee attacks, allowing you to quickly chase down your fleeing victims. Once you’ve tracked them down, swipe at them with your deadly strikes to snuff their life out for good. 

Zombies also have superior vision and can easily see nearby operators. Enemy players are highlighted and their footprints can be tracked, giving you plenty of opportunities to pounce on your newfound target. If that wasn’t enough, zombies are also immune to the gas circle and gas grenades. This allows you to set up some frightfully sneaky plays. 

Charged Jump

Arguably the most fun Zombie ability is the Charged Jump. This highly mobile move allows you to effortlessly leap onto rooftops, scale cliffs, evade enemy fire and initiate fights. You can adjust both the distance and height by holding down the Charged Jump button, so be sure to experiment with this before leaping towards your enemy. 

EMP Blast 

This ability works exactly the same as Modern Warefare’s EMP Drone in that it destroys enemy electronics, equipment, vehicles, and disables digital optics. Your enemy’s HUD will also be disabled if they get caught within the blast’s radius. 

Gas Grenade

Gas Grenades are incredibly potent in Warzone since they disorient your enemies and slow down their movements. Combine this with the high mobility from Zombie Royale’s undead and you have a lethal combination.

You’ll need to learn how to use these zombie abilities if you wish to increase your survivability.

Before you go chasing the nearest player, it’s often best to scan your surroundings for any enemy players that are alone. Not only will this stop your fleshy body from being riddled with bullets, it will also increase your chances of securing a successful kill. While it can be tempting to rush into the fray with your Charged Jump, it does give away your position thanks to the ability’s glow effect. 

Instead, it’s often best to use the cover of darkness to sneak up on them. Once you’ve successfully got within a few meters, it’s time to unleash your EMP Blast. This will instantly destroy any Proximity Mines and Claymore’s, allowing you to safely enter even the most fortified defenses. To make matters even better, the initial blast also reduces visibility and will cause most players to panic — giving you the moment to strike.

Once you have disabled any equipment and digital optics, it’s time to throw in your Gas Grenade. When the grenade has filled the room with deadly toxins, instantly run in and begin clawing away at your hapless victim. The slowing effect and overall disorientation from both abilities should make any escape futile.

Even if your enemy does manage to make a break for it, simply activate your Charged Jump to catch up to them. Just be aware that doing this will make you highly visible to nearby squads, so only use this ability when you have to. 

If you use these tips, you’ll be able to secure more kills as a zombie in Warzone’s Zombie Royale mode.
