Call of Duty Warzone player pings do not disappear due to glitch

100T Tommey was streaming Call of Duty Warzone recently, and he noticed a player ping wouldn’t go away. The ping followed the player all around and even on the map until Tommey killed him. The streamer had to pull up his task manager to show that he was not hacking.

Fans replied to his tweet, informing him that the glitch has existed in the game for a long time now. However, this was the first time Tommey came across the infinite ping glitch. Fans revealed instances when they could see a ping on the enemy player on the opposite end of the maps, and it lasted until the enemy died.

In another instance, a player shared that once they pinged an enemy after being downed and it stuck with them even after returning from the Gulag. The glitch is indeed breaking the game, as players are unaware of the fact that their live location is accessible to an opponent team.

Tommey become the very thing he swore to protect

Fans joked how the hacker “cop” himself turned out to be the hacker after Tommey came across the glitch. Tommey is credited to have single-handedly exposed tons Call of Duty Warzone hackers live on Twitch. Fans have given him the title of ‘Human Anti-cheat‘ following his efforts at keeping the game clean.

Regardless, Tommey can only do so much. Until Activision and Raven don’t put efforts into removing hackers and glitches from the game, they will only push players farther and farther away from the Battle Royale game.
