We’ve all done it. It’s so easy to slip yourself a cheeky, extra hundred during the family Monopoly night. However, when there is real money involved, that’s when cheating is no longer a game.
One semi-professional Call Of Duty: Vanguard player, who had won almost $4,000 playing the shooter, came under suspicion as to the legitimacy of his play. Applying mods in order to cheat the game has long been a problem in the Call Of Duty franchise. Publisher Activision Blizzard implemented the RICOCHET anti-cheat system across the online modes of play for Vanguard and Warzone. While the system has recognised and banned almost 150,000 accounts that had implemented cheats to date, there are still many more which go undetected.
If you want to see action from Call Of Duty: Vanguard’s Dome multiplayer map, check out the video below.
As reported by Dexerto, regular CoD streamer Kenji was playing in a 2v2 Search And Destroy tournament when his opponents became suspicious. Kenji had been streaming with his camera pointed at both him and his monitor, presumably to show that it was genuinely him playing the game. Although Kenji was definitely playing, that wasn’t what was worrying about his footage.
When the opposing team, made up of iLuhvly and ImSasukee, reviewed the footage, something seemed a little strange. During some parts of the match it was clear that Kenji was implementing wallhacks. This is a cheat which indicates your opponent's position, even through walls, by displaying a yellow box. In the clip ImSasukee posted on Twitter, you can clearly see the yellow wallhacks outline several times on Kenji’s screen.
As the saying goes, cheaters never prosper. Kenji was reportedly immediately banned by Checkmate Gaming which hosted the tournament. If that wasn’t enough, as spotted by PC Gamer, Kenji and his team, Grand Canyon University, have also been banned from the College CoD League. So, all in all not a good day for him.
