One Call of Duty: Warzone cheater has been caught, live, complaining for over two minutes straight after his aimbot hack stops working mid-match.

It’s no secret that, despite the rollout of Ricochet anti-cheat, Call of Duty: Warzone continues to be inundated with cheaters and hackers. After all, it doesn’t take much effort to purchase and download a few quick scripts off a provider—certainly not the amount needed to actually play and/or learn the game. Unsurprisingly, most of the players who use cheats aren’t exactly “Aydan”-incarnate to begin with. In fact, as one streamer demonstrated, without their hacks, these players turn into sitting ducks.

Upset sitting ducks, that is.

Warzone Cheater Goes On a Whining-Spree

One cheat-using streamer was caught live, broadcasting his use of cheats to the Internet as well as the fallout after they “stopped working.” In a new tweet republished Sunday, Jan. 16 by New York Subliners’ Mavriq (@MavriqGG), the streamer can be seen losing a few gunfights before realizing what was going on.

He gets progressively more frustrated about the situation throughout the two-minute clip—which he demonstrates by yelling the question “How?” continually in what is likely a wonderful case of schadenfreude for many.

At first, he starts complaining about the game’s TTK, blaming the recent update for the amount of “bullets to kill somebody.” He assumes it’s just the weapon he’s using and continues. However, it appears that one of his cheats stopped working partway through the stream.

“The aimbot just f***ing broke again,” he said.

According to the streamer, the loss of the aimbot also disabled his ability to aim—essentially making him even more of a sitting duck than usual. He showed his controller to the audience to demonstrate the situation for added effect before ending the stream.

Mavriq went on to explain in a reply that it’s suspected this is how anti-cheat takes care of hackers and script-users. Those who have an unusually high accuracy are flagged by the system. Neither Raven Software nor Activision have come forward to confirm that’s what happened in this scenario at the time of writing.
