A Warzone streamer unknowingly confessed to cheating after falling victim to Splat, one of Team Ricochet's new anti-cheat mitigations, in a new hilarious clip.
It is no secret that Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 have a serious cheating problem. Both multiplayer and the Battle Royale are overrun with hackers aimbotting or walling, ruining the gameplay experience for countless of other fans. Fortunately, new anti-cheat measures are in place to catch cheaters and eliminate them from lobbies in unique ways.
The most recent victim went viral on X after he outed himself by asking a simple question.
Warzone Streamer Unknowingly Confesses to Cheating in Hilarious Splat Clip
Warzone streamer, destowed, posted a clip of his parachute immediately being cut as soon as he deployed into a match on Urzikstan. The player repeatedly asks, "What happened?" as he remains knocked. In fact, he was so bewildered by the occurrence that he posted the clip to X, unknowingly outing himself as a cheater.
He titled the clip, "why they victimising me?" Very quickly, Warzone players from across the world, and even an X Community Note, taught him about the new anti-cheat method in Warzone, called Splat.
The developers warned the community about Splat back in November 2023, stating, "With Splat, if a cheater is discovered, we may randomly, and for fun, disable their parachute sending them careening into the ground after they deploy."
"Like all mitigations," they continued, "Splat won’t randomly turn on for a player that isn’t verified to be cheating." So, despite the streamer's apparent confusion, it seems Call of Duty's RICOCHET team confirmed that he is indeed cheating in Warzone.
Warzone Splat Anti-Cheat Explained
The Warzone Splat anti-cheat is not limited to just a faulty parachute. If you are caught cheating mid-match, after you have already deployed, you just might find your movement tampered with, resulting in an immediate death.
The developers explained, "Splat can also adjust player velocity, which transforms a bunny hop into a 10,000-foot drop taking them out instantly."
There are now more anti-cheat measures in Warzone than ever before, and there will likely be more coming in the future.
