Modern Warfare players have been at the mercy of hackers seen rummaging around Multiplayer playlists, but one user found the perfect way to start fighting back against the cheaters.

Infinity Ward’s latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise has been blasted by its fans for the excessive amount of hackers that are starting to have an effect on the overall player experience.

Whether they’re cracking the code to get under a game’s map or finding a way to escape the boundaries of the playing area just to gun down everyone still inside, there’s been more than a few ways to cheat in Modern Warfare.

However, it seems like Reddit user ‘xBRITISHxM8x’ had enough of the incessant presence of hackers in their games, finally taking action against them with the help of the Infantry Assault Vehicle.

A clip provided by the Redditor shows the typical building cheaters tend to flock toward to enter its borders, letting them target players without a chance of retaliation.

That is, until ‘xBRITISHxM8x hatched a plan to get revenge on the hackers, taking their tank to the infamous hut on Tavorsk District to make use of a widely known, but scarcely useful, game design trick.

The clip shows them sticking the barrel of their tank through the wall of the structure and firing inside of it.

Even on a regular building, this probably wouldn’t yield any kills against opponents inside, but apparently the shots actually connect against cheaters who’ve broken the borders of the walls – just like the tank’s cannon.

Immediately loading off shells into the building, the pilot managed to get two kills with two shots – but they weren’t done. They roamed to the back of the structure to wedge the nuzzle of the cannon into the building to get one more kill.

This is undoubtedly the most satisfying way a Modern Warfare player has dealt with the game’s hackers since it’s essentially “giving wall-glitchers a bit of their own medicine.”

Although this is hardly a remedy for the overall hacking issue in Modern Warfare, the community will still be looking for the devs to address the problem soon.

Another CoD Mobile patch has been made available as Season 12 continues strong with tons for the community to see and do. While ongoing events are always in focus, the biggest event of the Season is now in play.

Knights Divided is the featured addition in this update, though there’s still plenty more to digest. Seasonal Challenges will be taking up a good amount of your time if you want the rarest rewards in the game.

“Every 24 hours a new territory will surface, with only one territory open at a time,” the developers confirmed. You’ll have to complete various tasks at each territory to earn points for your chosen faction. Once time comes to an end, the faction with the most points claims that territory. 

Participating will unlock a ton of unique rewards throughout the event as well. There are over a dozen items to grab for yourself, ranging from the Razorback Ruby variant to the Elite PMC.

A full list of events taking place over the next week in CoD Mobile can be found below.

Two new Seasonal Challenges are dropping with this new update. Total Savage is the first and it features six unique components. You’ll need to claim all sorts of killstreak medals to claim Rare rewards and of course, a serving of Battle Pass XP.

Next up is the eight-part Prime Loadout Challenge. This one is for Battle Royale players and you’ll need to swap your weapons on the fly to get it done. Four exclusive items along with even more XP can be grabbed through this Challenge.

We’re still early into Season 12, but that doesn’t mean Season 13 information won’t be coming soon. The developers outlined that it’s “way too early” for any future announcements just yet, but keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks as the current Season begins to wind down.
