While the cheating problem within Call of Duty: Warzone has gotten a bit less noticeable in the past few months, there is no denying that it still exists. One Call of Duty: Warzone player proved this, though their failure to find success with the cheats quickly led to a clip going viral.
When Call of Duty: Warzone players cheat, it is often to make themselves look good on stream. While this seems to be backfiring a lot lately, as the situation between a cheater and the actor for Call of Duty Operator Mara has shown, there are still many looking to gain fame from using hacks and glitches to win. However, as shown by Reddit user AfnanMK, some players cheat without an audience, simply using the exploits for a cheap win. This specific cheater did have 12 of their victims spectating, though, something that may have pressured them enough to cause the to slip-up.
In the Redditor’s clip, a Call of Duty: Warzone cheater is depicted using an aim bot. Alongside wallhacks, which outline players through surfaces, these are the most common hacks used within the battle royale game. Right from the start, something seems unnatural about the players aim, as they can be seen locking onto several rooftops. Suspicions are confirmed when they turn the corner, as the player in the clip instantly locks onto an enemy firing from behind a car.
While the player behind the car should have had the advantage due to their solid cover, the cheater managed to down them from a distance with complete accuracy. While the other player’s unfair death can also be attributed to Call of Duty: Warzone’s fast TTK and the use of the MAC-10 to take them down, the cheater’s aimbot all-but-ensured that whoever their competition was stood no chance. However, the aimbotter’s fatal mistake comes after the down, as a grenade is thrown at the downed player.
While this is a fine finishing tactic most of the time, the player clearly did not take note of the form of cover being used. When going to loot their victim, the burning car exploded, and everyone spectating surely had a laugh watching this mistake play out. After the death, the theme music from the show Curb Your Enthusiasm played, turning the clip into a proper meme. Call of Duty: Warzone fans quickly ripped into the player in the comments, calling out their lack of situational awareness as something that cannot be bought online.
In this situation, karma ensured that this unskilled player got what was coming to them. Still, hopefully the next Call of Duty: Warzone ban wave will see their account removed permanently, ensuring that there is one less aimbotter for players to deal with online.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
