At the focus of all this criticism is the game’s lack of an anti-cheat. However, the game found its loudest criticism recently on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

Max Holloway feels Call of Duty Warzone needs an anti-cheat

Joe Rogan was talking about Max’s love for Warzone. The host pulled up a clip of his guest playing the game he loves. Upon the first look, Joe felt that the game seemed really fun, and Max naturally agreed. However, the UFC star felt the need to point out how his favorite game has a tiny problem.

They need an anti-cheat, though. Come on, come on, Raven Software, get your anti-cheat up. Bro people fu**ing Jackie Chans and Bruce Lees.”

Max feels that Raven Software needs to implement measures really soon to prevent hackers and cheaters from ruining the game. Taking the floor and talking about this on one of the most popular podcasts on the internet might catch Activision’s attention. Hopefully, Holloway’s words might be the final nail in the cheaters’ coffin.

Max calls Tim the ‘FatMan’

Joe Rogan asked Max about all the streamers and professional gamers he plays with. The UFC star name-dropped some of the popular Call of Duty Warzone streamers, including 100 Thieves Tommey, ZLaner, Nickmercs, and TimTheFatman.

The last name has left the gaming community in splits as Max wanted to name TimTheTatman. Instead, he ended up roasting the popular streamer and his good friend by calling him Fat. The UFC star instantly apologized to Tim on the podcast for his slip-up. Moreover, he even followed it up on Twitter.
