Warzone infinite ammo glitch found with akimbo weapons

A new glitch has been found in Call of Duty: Warzone, allowing players to have infinite ammo while using the Akimbo perk on their weapons.

Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode, Warzone, has had its fair share of puzzling issues since its launch on March 10.

The latest game-breaking exploit that was found is one of the most bizarre, however, as it allows players to have infinite ammo when making use of the Akimbo weapon perk.

A glitch with the akimbo perk has given players infinite ammo in Warzone.

While Akimbo weapons are not often seen as a go-to pick in Warzone loadouts, due to their inaccuracy outside of short-range gunfights, a new exploit allows players to never run out of ammo when using the perk.

YouTuber Acez Gaming highlighted the glitch on April 18, explaining that although it was situational, it could still provide players with an unfair advantage during certain fights.

He showed that players could fire all but one round out of their left or right akimbo gun before swapping it with a weapon on the floor, then picking it back up to find that the clip’s ammo had completely replenished.

“When you’re shooting with that left pistol and picking up a weapon, it reloads it automatically and works for any Akimbo pistol,” he explained.

Acez also highlighted that the glitch was particularly strong with weapons such as the 357 Snakeshot and later called for Warzone devs to patch the exploit.

“You essentially don’t have to reload your weapon. You can just sit here and spam, you can kinda see how this would be broken right?” he added, “the goal is for the glitch/exploit to be fixed and removed from the game.”

Although it requires players to be near a weapon when abusing the exploit, it has the potential to give players an unfair advantage in gunfights, particularly at some of Verdansk’s power positions that are often scattered with loot. Thankfully, most of the time the glitch will be too situational for players to use, but a fix would still be best.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
