Call of Duty players are claiming that Warzone is full of hackers yet again, despite Activision’s latest efforts to target the popular third-party cheating sites.
Warzone has seen incredible success since it was introduced on March 10, attracting plenty of top personalities from other titles to start creating content around the new Call of Duty battle royale.
However, as with many online multiplayer titles, one of the biggest challenges facing Warzone is the number of cheaters that have been plaguing matches, which has even led to Activision taking legal action against some of the supplying sites.
Hackers back in droves in Warzone
After the Call of Duty publishers initially shut down some of the cheats that had been plaguing the game, there appeared to be a big drop-off in the number of hackers in Warzone lobbies.
Unfortunately, this did not last for too long, with many players now reporting that cheaters have returned in the latter half of Season 6 and are ruining lobbies for players yet again.
Over the last few days, there have been multiple posts on the Warzone subreddit, similar to the one from u/CivChris, claiming that there has been an increased number of cheaters in their lobby.
“I can’t count the number of times in the last week where I’ve had a game ruined by a hacker,” they explained, suggesting that there were many different cheats being used, “A lot of the time it’s not even obvious hacking like aimbot, it’s red boxing.”
PS4 Warzone player u/rolandassassin added that he had encountered hackers in back-to-back games after enabling crossplay and claimed that the PC servers had become “aimbot heaven.”
While it is unclear what could be causing this apparent rise in cheaters, it was rumored that one of the well-known cheating sites has made a return after it was previously affected by a ban wave.
The Modern Warfare devs have issued multiple ban waves during the year and provided fans with updates on their progress, however, with the problem arising once again, players are calling for the issue to be addressed once again.
