Warzone Cheaters find way to end games

It appears a new bug in Warzone allows cheaters to automatically end games for all 150 players in a Warzone match.

UPDATE – March 15: Raven Software has confirmed on Twitter that they have already fixed this issue in Call of Duty: Warzone.

A game settings update went live on March 14 to prevent matches being ended early, per the studio’s tweet.

Original Story:

Warzone is no stranger to abnormal and re-occurring bugs like the stim and invisibility glitch, but today we’ve probably found one of the weirdest exploit we’ve seen yet.

In a clip from Twitch user “BisaG10”, we can see a game of Warzone was ended pre-maturely by an apparent cheater. Please note the following clip does include a highly offensive username in the killfeed, which is the suspected cheater in question.

During the course of a normal Warzone game, the streamer managed to kill the suspected cheater, which then resulted in the cheater apparently ending the entire thing. We then see an odd transition to a final killcam, similar to what would be seen in traditional multiplayer matches.

It seems when this happens the game does reward all players with a Warzone victory, as we’ve seen this same exploit happen to other players, all resulting in free wins.

While the streamer immediately pointed out that this could be the work of a cheater in-game, we’re a bit hesitant to say for certain this is the work of hackers in Verdansk. This very well could be related to a rare bug that occurs seemingly at random in games, that has recently been occurring more often.

If there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s that players should be on the lookout for this exploit. We don’t quite understand how this occurs, so we’ll update players with a warning if this becomes widespread.

Of course, since this issue does hand out free wins, we’re sure to see this either become a huge issue or something quickly patched by developer Raven.

We’ll keep our fingers crossed that this is addressed soon.
