Twitch stars Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier were left mindblown after running into one of the most blatant cheaters in all of Warzone. 

Call of Duty Warzone has proven to be extremely popular with Call of Duty and battle royale fans alike as it mixes the best of both worlds in incredibly competitive matches.

Though, with popularity, comes trolls and cheats – and Warzone has had its fair share of hackers trying to ruin matches for the past few months. 

While the developers have attempted to wipe them out, cheaters still manage to ruin games. However, sometimes, they don’t get things their own way and end up being exposed in front of thousands of viewers.

Despite Warzone being in its fifth season, hackers and cheats still run riot in Verdansk.

During their September 26 streams, Tfue and Symfuhny had teamed up for a few games and after about three hours, they ran into some trouble.

The pair had been rotating through Airport when they hopped out of a car and tried to take down another team. However, after trying to get some quick M4 shots off, Tfue was lasered right away and found himself on the back foot. 

“Motherf**ker,” Tfue called out as he was downed and eventually eliminated by the suspected cheat. “He’s 100% cheating bro. Yeah, I died dude.”

However, instead of reporting the cheat and heading to the main menu, the streamers decided to report them and stick around to watch what they did next. 

It didn’t take long for the hacker to act up again – taking on ridiculous cross-map shots with their M4A1 and hitting them. “What a rat dude!” Symfunhy shouted as the pair watched on, laughing at how ridiculous the shots were.

In the end, though, Tfue and Symfunhy got their revenge as they watched the hacker fail to win a gunfight before they were ultimately eliminated.

“Oh! Get s**t on, you f**king idiot,” Tfue roared. Sym quickly echoed those thoughts, dropping his own shout of “get s**t on” as the cheater’s teammate took center stage after their elimination. 

Given that the pair submitted reports of their own, and have plenty of evidence of the cheating, it might not be long before Activision drops the ban hammer.

As for other cheaters, alls players can do is continue to report them, and hope that the devs start rooting things out.

Modern Warfare & Warzone update nerfs AS VAL & SP-R: Patch notes

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone’s October 8 update has quickly nerfed the overpowered rounds on Season 6’s new AS VAL and SP-R 208 weapons, while fixing a bizarre Warzone bug. Check out the full patch notes below.

In one of CoD’s quicker patches, Infinity Ward have officially fixed the SP-R 208 and AS VAL shenanigans players have experienced since Season 6 deployed on September 28. In this patch, which IW had alluded to in recent days, the developers fixed the AS VAL’s absurd bullet penetration with its SSP 10-R mags and completely overhauled the SP-R’s hitscan dominance.

The SKS marksman rifle also received a light tweak, but, more importantly for Warzone enthusiasts, the bugged interaction between the subway’s fast travel system and Verdansk’s gas has been fixed.

AS VAL and SP-R nerfs

The AS VAL’s SSP 10-R mags let it shoot through walls upon walls and the SP-R’s .300 Norma mag and .338 Lapua mags let it essentially shoot as a hitscan sniper up to 450 meters. As such, Season 6’s AR was a nightmare in multiplayer and the marksman rifle was some sort of hybrid HDR-meets-Kar98k monstrosity.

Both of those issues have been abruptly adjusted, following recent confirmations from Infinity Ward that they would be tackling the overpowered weapons sooner than later.

While the AS VAL’s change was a simple one, just removing the ability to shoot through multiple walls, the SP-R has also gone through a number of changes aimed at balancing it more appropriately for Verdansk gameplay.

Warzone Subway bug fix

When Season 6 dropped, it came with a new, subterranean fast-travel system in the form of a subway that moves around the entire map. Unfortunately, players quickly realized that the underground transport could also bring you to an undeserved victory as the system could be abused to ignore the gas while your opponents on the surface coughed to death.

That issue has now been resolved in the October 8 update, with players within the subway no longer untouched by the battle royale’s toxic gas. This is tremendous news for those who want to play the game without worrying about ‘sewer rats’ exploiting a major bug. In combination with the nerfs to the AS VAL and SP-R, this patch should be a community favorite.
