After a recent unannounced ban wave that resulted in innocents being caught in the crossfire, Warzone cheating is once again a hot topic within the Call of Duty culture. Warzone cheats and hacks software are commonly used in the Battle royale hit, leaving the group of millions of players dissatisfied.
Cheaters have been running wild in Warzone Season 1. So, here are some of the best tips for detecting cheaters and don’t forget to report them! Also, the best Warzone players can be outplayed at times, but that death can be a little suspicious.
You’ll be pre-aimed when running Dead Silence and Ghost, or the whole team will be wiped out in a matter of seconds by a single player.
So, how can one say if they’ve been duped by a cheater? Below are 6 working tips on how you can make sure that the player is a cheater!
1. Spectate the rest of their Warzone match
Hackers have different degrees of power; often they can connect to targets thousands of miles away, at other times they can track people behind walls. Since you can’t rely on killcams to reliably base accusations, you should watch the rest of their match.
Is this player aware that someone is in the room, and does their target appear natural? All of these are the questions you should ask yourself while observing a suspected cheater.
2. Look at their Warzone level
If a highly skilled player is racking up kills while wearing default skins and calling cards, this player is most likely cheating. This player is either ‘smurfing’ by creating a new account to prevent skill-based matchmaking, or this new account has cheats installed on it.
If you’re persuaded that the player is cheating, simply click the ‘report’ button, block them so that you don’t see them again, and hope Activision takes care of them.
3. Check their Warzone stats
This is one of the ways which can help you in judging whether the player is a cheater or not! You can check to see if everything looks normal only if they have their stats shown. Most Hackers have extremely high stats, with kill/death ratios of four or higher. If you look back at their previous games and see that they are consistently performing admirably, you should be suspicious.
A cheater would most likely do extremely well in every game, with average kills far exceeding the norm. If their results seem to be too good to be true, this player is most likely cheating.
Well, this method is not foolproof because there are some players who have amazing skills and reflexes.
4. Cheaters Use Aimbots
Aimbots come in various forms, but they’ve gotten more advanced over time. Some aimbots are so well-designed that they necessitate a monthly subscription model to keep them running. These cheats allow unscrupulous players to imprecisely target their opponents, allowing the Aimbot to do the rest.
Keep an eye out for an unusually high percentage of headshots, as most Aimbots give a perfect headshot!
5. Standing still
The majority of cheaters do not want to be caught. It’s still possible to see a cheater openly aim botting the entire lobby and racking up 50 kills. Cheaters nowadays try to conceal their behaviour.
After watching a player snap at you or monitor you through a wall in the killcam, they will stand still for 10-20 seconds as you spectate them. If you observe them for a long period of time, you will notice that their ability is either significantly lower than when they killed you, or that they freeze again after doing something impressive, it is fairly reasonable to conclude that this player is cheating.
Many cheaters would openly boast about their exploits in chat in order to troll and enrage other players. Great gamers can be arrogant at times, but cheaters also look for an excuse to rile up other players, which should be looked upon.
So, If you find a cheater in a Warzone game, don’t wait until the end to scream at them; you’re just giving them what they want. Instead, simply report, block, and proceed.
