Cheating is an issue that has plagued Call of Duty: Warzone since its launch. Just last month players were banned from a over cheating accusations that were later recanted. Now, the issue has gotten so bad that several prominent players are calling it quits.
YouTuber Vikkstar (aka Vikram Singh Barn) was one of these content creators. In a on his channel–which boasts over seven million followers–posted at the end of January, Vikkstar explained that while he still occasionally streams Warzone, he won’t be making or posting videos about it anymore because the game is in “the worst state it has ever been” due to hackers.
“Activision isn’t addressing how many hackers there are in the game,” Vikkstar said in his video. According to the YouTuber, when he was playing before filing this video he ran into a hacker who was live-streaming themselves hacking on Facebook Gaming, and apparently had been for hours with hundreds of viewers. “The playerbase of the game is now so saturated with hackers, you tend to find them in every single lobby.”
