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.

Renegades announce new CoD roster ahead of second Challengers season

Esports organisation Renegades have revealed their Call of Duty roster for the second season of the CDL’s Challengers Series, including players from last year’s Paris Legion roster. 

The switch from the Call of Duty World League to the Call of Duty League represents the greatest shake-up competitive CoD has ever seen. While latter tournaments in the CWL involved an amateur tournament running parallel to the main one, the introduction of Challengers’ Series gives a greater formalisation to competition below the best of the best.

With franchised spots in the CDL costing millions, it’s no surprise that some big name esports organisations have found themselves competing in the Challengers Series. One of these orgs is Renegades, the Detroit-based esports team that has come in and out of competitive CoD in recent years.

Renegades have come and gone from the Call of Duty pro scene in the past.

On October 31, they announced their CoD roster for the upcoming Black Ops Cold War season, which will be the second season of the CDL and its accompanying Challenger Series.

Perhaps the biggest name in the new roster is Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas, who represented Paris Legion in the CDL last year. It was an up-and-down year for the Paris Legion, who managed a second place finish at the online CDL Week 12 London event.

He is also joined by ex-Paris teammate Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek, who is best known for his five years with Australian organisation Mindfreak from 2014 to 2019.

Rounding off the roster are Lincoln ‘Fighta’ Ferguson and Amer ‘Pred’ Zulbeari, making a fully Australian roster. The nationalities of all players means they will likely compete in the APAC region of the Challengers Series.

While Shockz and Louqa come off the back of mixed fortunes in the CDL, Fighta and Pred both joined Renegades in January of 2020. In the somewhat weaker field of APAC competition, their Renegades roster dominated the region’s Challenger tournaments during the Modern Warfare season.

Replacing half the team with CDL standard pros means it’s likely we’ll see similar domination this year, barring any shock performances from the other APAC teams.
