Call of Duty: Warzone is approaching its first anniversary (will the fateful new map also arrive?), but the battle royale of Activision and Infinity Ward has to deal with a new battle, once again caused by the cheaters that abound more and more. Some of the most popular streamers and youtubers have officially declared war on Warzone.
The mass protest arose above all from a video by Drift0rin which the popular youtuber says he is heartbroken by an ever-worsening situation and does not seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Drift0r is well known to the Call of Duty community, and we can say that much of his career as a content creator is based precisely on the Activision franchise. Once you understand the importance that the shooter series has for a youtuber like him, you will understand why his controversy has had such a great resonance: Drift0ras well as many other streamers, is ready to leave Warzone due to too many cheaters.
While Warzone has a long series of problems that we have also reported to you over the months (remember the devastating weapons of black ops cold warwhose nerf seems to have pleased the community), the entire community seems to agree that the game’s biggest problem is cheaters.
From day one, gamers who abuse cheats have ramped up the battle royale, in a wide range of rogue users using wallhacks or performance enhancing tricks. Even some streamers have even made use of it – and some of them, crime geniuses, have been exposed live.
Despite the actions of Activision and Infinity Ward, which have already banned tens of thousands of rogue players, the cheater phenomenon shows no sign of stopping, and the streamer denounces the inability of developers to adopt an anti-cheat system that is truly functional. In a video from last January 26, Drift0r he says he is extremely unhappy with the support of Warzone, a game he loves but in which cheaters now meet at a fixed rate, and which no longer has the right reasons to be played.
I really like Warzone, you can watch my videos, it’s my number one favorite CoD thing to play, but I’m going to drop ship. I got up this morning and made the decision: I’m going to go ahead and keep making videos, but I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t think it’s worth playing anymore.
As we have said, the protest was not limited only to Drift0rbut it has been welcomed by many other content creators and streamers who are ready to abandon Warzone if things don’t change soon.
