Some Warzone hackers have decided to wreak havoc in Rebirth Island by creating artificial chopper guns.

Hackers are still running rampant in Warzone despite the arrival of Vanguard and Activision's new Ricochet anti-cheat system right around the corner. Now, they appear to be taking things to a whole new level by combining some of the most common—and frustrating—hacks with legitimate gameplay. This has illuminated another layer of illicit behavior in-game and sparked what may be the destruction of the last hacker-less bastion Warzone players have.

Warzone Cheaters Have Combined Hacks to Create Chopper Guns

Essentially, the hackers are using Aim and Wall hacks to artificially create helicopter gunners in Warzone's Rebirth Island.

The strategy first appeared on Tik Tok but has since circulated through multiple social media platforms. It is typically performed in pairs with one player piloting the helicopter while the other points their weapon out the side opening and uses aiming hacks to efficiently take down those on the ground.

This isn't the first time hackers have decided to get clever with how they break the game. In fact, this appears to be a trend—though DBLTAP cannot confirm if this is a response to the anti-cheat announcement or a natural progression.

Rebirth Island has been known to have fewer—although still relatively plagued by—cheaters in Warzone. That may not be the case anymore, however, so we recommend players keep their eyes peeled for any suspicious shots from above.

Ricochet anti-cheat is set to rollout into Warzone in December 2021.
