YouTuber Noel Miller dominates CoD: Warzone – using a steering wheel

Popular YouTuber Noel Miller has recently branched out into playing some Call of Duty: Warzone, but with a twist – he’s ditched a normal controller in favor of a steering wheel. 

Noel Miller is perhaps best known for his popular YouTube channel which, at the time of writing, sits at nearly 1.9 million subscribers. He regularly makes a variety of content for his fans to enjoy, including collaborating with his long-time friend and fellow YouTuber Cody Ko. 

However, over on his Twitch stream, the popular ex-Viner has been entertaining his followers with some Warzone, Call of Duty’s sophomore battle royale effort. On April 10, he took this entertainment to another level, plugging a steering wheel into his setup in order to control his player.  

Warzone recently hit 50 million players.

The biggest problem with this setup, aside from the obvious lack of precision, is that basic controllers have two joysticks – one for movement and one for aiming. Ditching these for a steering wheel meant Miller was completely reliant on movement, and couldn’t alter his FOV in any direction. 

This didn’t stop him from racking up some hilarious plays, however. After dying in a match, Miller was transported to the infamous Gulag, where he proceeded to win his 1v1 while using a steering wheel. 

“Oh f**k, I can literally only strafe,” he laughed, in an utterly hilarious clip. Despite being stunned and pinned into a corner, the 30-year-old managed to eliminate his enemy as he was pushed.

“I won! I f**king won,” he creased, much to the surprise of his teammates, who then joined him in fits of laughter. 

Even though he was severely limited in terms of movement, the steering wheel came into its own when driving vehicles, allowing Miller to put on quite a good Uber impression as he picked up his teammates. 

It’s fair to say that, while we’re not sure anyone asked for Warzone gameplay while using a steering wheel, it made for a number of hilarious moments for Miller’s watching audience.

It’s unlikely he’ll be pulling off any high-kill wins with this strategy though, but if you want that kind of action, check out this insane 100 kill world record from a squad of pro players.

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.
