Game company Activision has revealed that it has blocked an undetectable Call of Duty Warzone cheat after it recently gained popularity.
Activision has been active lately to prevent cheats from invading their games, especially in Warzone where multiplayer is always active. The developer of the Userviz software has had to shut down its own exploit because of this and with the help of a vigilant anti-cheat group.
The Anti-Cheat Police Department recently published their discovery of the exploit in his personal capacity Twitter account. It called the exploit a “next-generation of cheating” and was also available on consoles. It offered automatic aiming, automatic locking and the ability to reduce recoil by determining the weapon the player chose. This reduces the chances of winning for their opponents, which is totally unfair.
“Team, this statement was not required,” wrote the anonymous user101, developer of the software. “However, at the request of Activision Publishing, Inc (“Activision”), I will no longer develop software or provide access to software that can be used to exploit their games. It was never my intention to do anything illegal. At the end of the video that drew so much attention to this project, it said ‘coming soon’. The software has never been published.
“This type of technology has other real supportive benefits, for example by pointing a webcam at yourself you can control movements without the use of limbs. Unfortunately, due to the possible negative impact, I will not develop it further.”
Call of Duty Warzone is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
