Call of Duty: Warzone has a cool ping system similar to that of Apex Legends, which allows players to ping almost every thing in the map and alert teammates of possible items.
The map in Call of Duty: Warzone lets you zoom in as close as you want and then press Up on the D-Pad (on PlayStation 4) to then ping items, Buy Stations, vehicles, locations, and more.
The ping system is extremely useful especially when playing with teammates that don’t have microphones.
You can easily ping any thing you see for teammates to pick up — weapons that you spot while looting, Buy Stations, vehicles, and more to easily find items. When you walk near a weapon, pressing UP on the d-pad will ping it for anyone on your squad to see and get to.

When is the Twitch Rivals Warzone event?
The event’s Open Qualifiers will start at 2PM PT / 5PM ET on December 3. This is when the teams that move forward will be determined and while the Qualifiers are open, you can only join them if you’re a Twitch Partner or Twitch Affiliate.
Two days will then be spent trying to pick the absolute best players from the established teams. On both December 8 and December 16, the teams will compete against each other in the tournament starting 2PM PT | 5 PM ET onwards.
How to participate in the Twitch Rivals Warzone event
If you’re a Twitch streamer then just head over to the Twitch Rivals website to register yourself. The site will check if you’re a captain or a teammate and will confirm that you’re over 18. Then just put in your email address and select the right options to finish your registration.
If it’s successful then you’ll be notified of your progress. Unfortunately, not every Affiliate and Partner will be able to compete, so keep that in mind when applying.
Twitch Rivals Warzone format
Usually Warzone tournaments would have you compete in straightforward kill-races against other players, but they’re changing things up for this event. If you make it to the first Show Day, you will witness 49 trios competing against each other in five private lobbies.
Teams will get points for kills, and the 24 teams that have the highest amount of accumulated points will advance through to Round Two. Five other lobbies will be filled with teams competing against each other on the second Show Day.

Black Ops Cold War Nuke Event icon & Alcatraz calling card leaked
An icon for Warzone’s future Nuclear Event and a calling card depicting Cold War’s Alcatraz Island have been leaked.
An icon for the previously leaked ‘Nuke Event’ and a calling card for the upcoming Alcatraz game mode have been discovered in the Black Ops Cold War game files.
It was expected that a Nuke would go off in Warzone to mark the launch of Black Ops Cold War in November. Now, it’s more likely that this nuclear event will happen at some point in 2021, as no event has been listed on the road map for Cold War Season 1 on December 10.
A well-known leaker has posted an icon for this event, as well as a calling card teasing the much-anticipated ‘Rebirth’ mode for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Check them out here:
What does it mean?
A nuclear event in Warzone has been expected for a long time. Players expect the explosion to make major changes to the map in a similar fashion to Fortnite’s live events.
If you managed to gain access to Bunker 11 in Verdansk, you could discover a nuke under construction and players have also discovered a launch button item in Warzone.
The leaked icon for this event shows a rocket flying away from a flag with a Soviet-esque star in the background.
The roadmap for Cold War Season 1 teased a ‘Classified Warzone Experience.’ When translated from Russian, the redacted text which accompanies the teaser reads ‘Rebirth Island.’
Rebirth Island is the Soviet base from the original Black Ops where the Nova 6 gas was developed. This chemical weapon bears a strong resemblance to the gas in Warzone.
There have been several clues that Rebirth Island is coming to Warzone and Cold War. A ‘Rebirth’ leaderboard was added to Warzone on November 10, and data miner TheGamingRevolution discovered an upcoming event called Rebirth.
With the map Alcatraz being a massive hit in Blackout, it’s more than likely that Rebirth will feature it as a playable location with a Soviet theme. Now we have further clarification with a calling card picturing Alcatraz being leaked.
As it has been confirmed that Warzone will remain in Verdansk for some time, Alcatraz may be a separate experience using Warzone mechanics in the Black Ops Cold War engine.
It’s very likely that Rebirth and the nuke will be completely separate events, but we won’t know for sure until December 10 when Black Ops Cold War’s first season begins.
Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters further frustrate community by posting to TikTok
Call of Duty Warzone cheaters are blatantly posting videos of them hacking on TikTok, making the community furious.
Warzone cheaters have begun unashamedly posting their hacks to TikTok, much to the frustration of the Call of Duty player-base that’s active on social media.
Cheaters have been a problem in Warzone since day one. Almost every player has encountered one in their game, as they watch someone lock on to targets through walls and never miss a bullet.
Streamers, content creators, and the community as a whole have cried out for Activision to address the cheating problem, and the publisher has attempted to solve the issue by banning hundreds of thousands of hackers and shutting down the sites selling these cheats.
However, while there have certainly been dips in the number of cheaters over time, the problem still persists.
TikTok user Waldo41 uploads TikToks of them racking up dozens of kills while using hacks in Warzone. They have over 50,000 followers and almost a million ‘likes’ on their videos. They show what using a hack looks like, often to make fun of the enemy player’s reaction to getting killed in such a way.
Every player is outlined by a box that’s yellow when they’re behind cover and red when in sight. The cheater can also see what primary weapon opponents are running, and can monitor any dropped loot labeled in blue. As soon as the player comes into sight, the cheaters M4A1 snaps onto their head and melts their health away.
Waldo41 says players can message them for ‘info on the gaming chair,’ using the tired joke that players who cheat only play better because they bought an expensive gaming chair.
Reddit user ‘GoodRedditBoss‘ shared one of the TikToks to the Warzone subreddit to highlight the issue. The community was understandably frustrated at how blatant the cheats were being displayed.
“I don’t understand how you can get pleasure from playing like this,” said u/maciek9181. “Unless he takes pleasure from upsetting other players.”
With Waldo41 being only one example of many, hopefully posting cheats to TikTok will be the beginning of the end for Warzone hackers, although that trend seems to be going in the wrong direction for now.
