Warzone players have had enough, with many users reporting that they’re quitting the game due to cheaters in every match.
There’s no game quite like Warzone, which makes its decline all the more concerning. Activision’s battle royale title has attracted over 100 million players since its launch in March 2020.
However, it feels like Warzone cheaters are getting worse with each passing month. And with the publisher doing little to fight back against the rising tides of hacking players, it’s certainly putting more than a few people off the game for good.
Thankfully, there’s a way for PlayStation fans to avoid cheaters in Warzone, but other players aren’t so lucky. On both PC and Xbox, gamers have to put up with aimbotting, wallhacking, and more in the game.
And now that players can now download Warzone cheats on console, turning off crossplay doesn’t guarantee a hacker-free lobby anymore.
In the past, we’ve even seen players brag about cheating in Warzone while streaming… It’s a wonder that it’s taken players this long to start quitting.
Warzone Players Quitting Because of Cheaters
According to new posts on the CODWarzone subreddit, players are quitting the battle royale due to the ongoing cheater issues.
In one recent submission, user Agk3los reports that they’ve run into 7 hackers in the last 7 games. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard stories like this, with the Warzone fan claiming that they were killed by blatant cheaters in each game – none of whom were trying to hide their hacking.
“This game is just done. It’s been taken over and is just unplayable at this point. The occasional hacker is one thing. The 1 hacker in 5 games thing was one thing. Hackers in every single game is a completely other thing.”
The user goes on to confirm that they’re done with Warzone, having uninstalled the title for good. It’s a shame to see more players begin to drop off Activision’s battle royale, but it’s hard to blame them.
Even top streamers are leaving Warzone’s battle royale modes, which is almost certainly concerning higher-ups at Activision.
However, new reports indicate that a new WW2 Warzone map is coming very soon. Could this be the turnaround that the game needs?
Truthfully, we’re sure that Warzone will keep a huge player base for quite some time. But with a new Battlefield 2042 trailer looking better than any shooter in years, Activision’s time could be running out.
