Just a year ago, it seemed Warzone kill records were being broken left and right, as the freshly new battle royale was inspiring content creators and competitive players alike to test their limits.

Nowadays, however, it seems the only in-game milestones being broken now are by shameless hackers.

On Sept. 2, Warzone content creator, IceManIsaac, took to Twitter to post a screenshot of an apparent Buy Backs Duos world record performance by a player with 108 kills.

Unfortunately, the feat was as unreal as it sounded as others in the community were quick to point out that the player was blatantly cheating.

The hacker was also cited by another content creator, JGOD, for using just about every trick in the Warzone cheat playbook. From aimbot to speed hacks, third-person POV, you name it.

Perhaps the most frustrating part about the situation is that the player also seems to be known for streaming themselves doing the deed, and is clearly confident they can get with away it being that they reportedly have a new account ready to go with each game queued.

At the time of writing, the hacker's Twitch has been said to be banned from the streaming platform.

For now, Raven Software and Activision continue to mass perma-ban Warzone accounts in waves. However, with no anti-cheat system in place, it's clear that this issue will continue to surface.

Thankfully, set to launch "later this year" according to Activision, a new PC anti-cheat system will be dropping along with a new battle royale map, in turn signaling the beginning of full integration between Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone.
