The most irritating glitch in Call of Duty: Warzone is quitting the scene in the game's latest update, finally letting players properly compete in the battle royale and play the game as it was meant to be played.
It's been hanging over Warzone for the longest time, and the patience of players was running very thin, indeed. The glitch let players use unlimited stims to heal themselves infinitely, effectively negating the purpose of the poisonous gas. Those "blessed" with the exploit could camp out in the mist, waiting for their competitors to eliminate each other and walk away with the win. The stress and excitement of securing a real win is the cherry on top of the Warzone cake, and so it was extremely annoying to see that some were cruising along to a victory owing to a loophole in the game.
After appearing last October, Infinity Ward rolled out a patch which was intended to rid the game of the cheat. The glitch popped back up in November, and the developer smacked it down like they were playing Whack-A-Mole. Things were peaceful (relatively speaking, this is Warzone after all) and then the new year rang in the return of the ridiculous stim exploit. In the latest update, Treyarch has at long last booted the glitch for good, never to rear its pesky head again. The mid-season patch notes cover a number of other balance and bug fixes, like tweaking the kill XP reward of Kingslayer matches and doing away with tier skips, but the news about the stim glitch will be music to the community's ears.
Last week, Activision announced that another 60,000 cheaters had been permanently banned from Warzone, bringing the total number of bans to 300,000 since its launch. "We are committed to delivering a fair and fun experience for all players. This is a dedicated focus for our security, enforcement and technology teams," said the publisher.
"We know cheaters are constantly looking for vulnerabilities, and we continue to dedicate resources 24/7 to identify and combat cheats... We're committed to this cause. We are listening and will not stop in our efforts." Players are holding out hope for dedicated anti-cheat software to identify hackers before they even begin, and Activision has assured that "additional measures [are] coming - both preventative and enforcement - throughout this year to root out both cheaters and cheat providers."
