Once again, Call of Duty: Warzone is being bogged down by cheaters, and this time, they're tooting their own horn on TikTok.
You'd would think that if you were employing underhanded tactics in an online video game where every element is continually tracked and tuned by the developer and publisher, you might be less vocal about that fact. But I don't cheat, and so I don't actually know what goes through a cheater's when they show off those sweet, sweet "skills".
Also, they're absolutely on Activision's radar. We all know it. In April, it banned 50,000 players from Warzone, which was only one month after its launch. It didn't discourage people from trying, though, and Activision ominously assured that "more banwaves are coming" to those breaking the rules.
In this TikTok, you see a player decimate the competition in Warzone, but it's all down to the cheat software they've installed. This player sees exactly where other players are and what weapon they're using, giving them a very unfair advantage over the people who are playing properly.
"I haven't won a warzone game and I don't [think] I will ever win (unless I get [a] good team player), but never it came to my mind to use cheats," responded Reddit user Devilhaert_dg. "What do these people gain, other than a bland game? It's like eating pizza with no spices and cheese on it."
Amen. The most that the Call of Duty community is able to do to help stamp out cheating is report the offending player to Activision, and maintain the conversation around cheating and how it isn't acceptable. Unfortunately, there will always be cheaters in games like these, because some get their thrills from being very annoying. Now, that's not to disregard the fact that all of us underwent a similar stage when we were about 11 years old. But, these people only went and made it a part of their personality, and paid actual money to be "skilled" in a free-to-play game.
In other news, it's looking likely that we'll be heading off to Rebirth Island in a new map for the incredibly popular battle royale. It actually may be Alcatraz, which made its debut in the Blackout mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
