Cheaters infest Warzone again as players claim providers are back with free hacks
Warzone players are frustrated with a recent increase in the number of cheaters running rampant in Season 4 of the battle royale.
Frustrated players are claiming that an uptick in cheaters during Warzone Season 4 is a direct effect of cheat providers offering free hacks.
Warzone Season 4 delivered a ton of new content to enjoy including the brand-new Fortune’s Keep map that players have praised for its exciting gameplay. Unfortunately, a recent increase in the number of cheaters is ruining the fun and leading to a frustrated community of players.
After RICOCHET anti-cheat made running into Warzone hacks less frequent, players claim that cheat providers are returning with new and improved software to bypass the anti-cheat. To make matters worse, it seems providers are offering their cheats free of charge.
Warzone has always had a major issue with cheaters ruining matches for legitimate players. Without a proper anti-cheat protecting Warzone players, cheat providers had nothing to worry about.
This all changed with the launch of RICOCHET during Warzone Pacific Season 1. Since then, RICOCHET has implemented several methods to prevent cheaters from running rampant.
For a while, it became less common for cheaters to appear in-game, as the anti-cheat successfully snuffed out hacks. However, it seems that cheat providers have finally caught up to RICOCHET in Season 4, with many players reporting an increase in cheaters.
A post from the Warzone subreddit has players discussing why the recent uptick in cheaters has occurred. For starters, most players claimed that cheat providers have been offering their hacks for free as of late: “Engineowning Hack company is giving out a free wall hack this weekend for the fourth!! that’s why.”
The fact that Warzone cheats are available for free is a major issue in itself, but the most pressing matter that players discussed was the fact that cheat providers have updated their services to counter RICOCHET in its current state.
After being relativity quiet for a long period of time, it seems cheat providers have returned with new products that are designed to bypass the current version of RICOCHET: “A streamer said that a company that makes the cheats put out a update to be able to cheat again.”
It looks like RICOCHET and cheat providers will continue to trade blows in a repetitive cycle. We already know that RICOCHET is a form of software that adapts to new cheats and improves its ability to pinpoint cheaters over time.
As cheat providers continue to develop new and improved cheats, RICOCHET will take some time to catch up before it can detect and eliminate hackers. However, once it does catch up, the number of hackers should drop significantly thus repeating the cycle once more.
