Players using hacks to gain an unfair advantage and ruin the games of non-cheating players has been a major topic in Call of Duty: Warzone, and a recent video show off insanely powerful silent aim hacks players are afraid of becoming widespread among hackers.
Call of Duty: Warzone has seen a great deal of success following its official release in 2020, as the battle royale game has become one of the most popular multiplayer video games in the world, evident by its impressive player count.
Unfortunately, this success has also been accompanied by a major problem regarding hackers being a frustrating presence for players who play the game legitimately.
This significant hacking problem has caused the developers to state how hackers are ruining the best work of their lives and has led them to utilize stronger measures when it comes to banning, resulting in many players having been banned.
Now, concern in the community has risen over a recent video showing off a display of incredibly powerful hacks that has caused a great deal of concern among community members.
The video at the focus of this recent discussion focused on hacking in Warzone came by way of community member GigaSnake who posted the footage on the official Call of Duty: Warzone subreddit.
This clip shows GigaSnake being sniped out of the air when falling to the ground. Now, you might at first think it was a well-placed shot by an enemy player. However, the killcam shows a player using the SPR Marksmen Rifle with no scope hip-firing randomly in the air. One of these random hip-fire shots lands perfectly on GigaSnake in the air and downs him.
Other players soon began to discuss what kind of hack this particular player was using to achieve a result where they could hit enemies precisely without even needing to aim, considering aimbots still require players to aim somewhat manually.
The consensus by the community was that this player was using silent aim hacks, which according to community member Ditdr, intercept and modify the server packets.
This allows hackers not to have to be looking at you to have their shots land, and all it requires from them is to shoot around in the air randomly.
Considering how these Warzone silent aim hacks defeat the entire purpose of playing a first-person shooter game like Warzone, players could not wrap their heads around what satisfaction a player could get from using these silent aim hacks.
There is no doubt that this is something no one wants to see become widespread across servers and is hopefully something that can be combated against in the future.
