Hacking in Warzone has been plaguing the game since its release in March of 2020. Some players have been using cheats, such as wallhacks and aimbots, to gain an unfair advantage. Although it seems that Activision is placing hackers in lobbies with other cheaters, Warzone matches will occasionally contain these dishonest players.
Although the presence of a hacker can certainly frustrate players who play the game fairly, there have also been reports of bugs that can be exploited. One example is the Juggernaut glitch, which allowed players to duplicate their Juggernaut drops. Activision has taken some steps to deal with cheaters, but as long as exploitative bugs slip through the cracks, some players will have to face unfair competition.
Warzone Glitch Allows Players to See Through Walls
A recently discovered Warzone glitch, which seems to be occurring in the Gulag, is allowing players to see through walls. Reddit user, "chinitotuchman", uploaded a clip on Reddit which showcases the bug. The player provided some context, stating that "I went to the gulag, and as soon as I loaded into the fight (but before it started) it flashed gulag victory and I redeployed."
The events in the clip take place shortly after the player faced the Gulag glitch. In the video, we see that their enemies are highlighted in red and can be seen behind walls. The player goes on to lock in some easy kills as their opponents, not knowing that they have already been spotted, approach them. The wallhack bug gives a massive advantage to players that encounter it, as it makes it easy to locate and ambush enemies.
The Warzone community, which is already frustrated by the presence of hacking, must surely be disappointed with the newly discovered bug. One can only hope that Activision introduces a patch to fix the bug as soon as possible.
