Every game has its fair share of cheaters and hackers. While regular players let it slide, professionals have always voiced out their concerns about it. In one such case, Jack “Courage” Dunlop has taken to Twitter to call all the cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone out.
The Battle Royale game is one with a massive user base. However, we have seen constant outrage, even in the past, due to the sheer volume of cheaters present in the game.
The hackers/cheaters use a number of techniques to turn the game into their favor; wallhacks and aimbots being some of many. Just recently, a Twitch streamer was permanently banned from the title for using wall-hacks during a live stream.
Many other players and streamers shared Courage’s opinion about the game. You can read some of the tweets below.
In a subsequent tweet, Courage explained how he has played a massive tally of Fortnite games and come across only a handful of cheaters. With Warzone, the cheaters doubled within a very short span of time.
Fortnite, another BR game, enjoys an even bigger following than Call of Duty Warzone. The vast difference in the number of cheaters and hackers in the two games could lead many to jump ship. When Riot Games launched Valorant, that did happen, for a lot of reasons. If things do not shape around as per the players’ wishes, they’re always going to consider dumping the game.
TimTheTatman had a mocking reply to that very tweet. Given the fact that both Tim and Courage have previously reported cheaters in the game, the tweet is rather friendly.
In April, Infinity Ward issued over 70,000 bans to protect Warzone from cheaters and termed they have a zero-tolerance policy for them. Unfortunately, the problem not only still persists, but the number of hackers only seems to be growing.
Courage has been vocal about cheaters in the game for a very long time. Over time, he has reported his frustration and has called out Infinity Ward and Activision to fix things. While the developers have promised changes, players continue to encounter such cheaters.
