CoD: Warzone cheaters hit with another ban wave

Raven has banned more Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters, after recently banning over 60,000 players in February 2021.



Raven has one-upped on their promise to ban cheaters in CoD: Warzone by hitting them with yet another ban wave.

Recently, Raven has started communicating more with the Call of Duty community after the recent banning of over 60,000 Warzone cheaters.

This comes after months of community backlash regarding Warzone’s anti-cheat and the game’s overall state and competitive integrity. Cheaters in-game have seemingly gone unpunished for months, and high-tier play has been infested with obvious aimbotters and wallhackers.

The issue has compounded so harshly, it has led to content creators and streamers reaching breaking points. Streamers like NICKMERCS and Symfuhny quit competitive Warzone entirely, and frustrated players like Bobbypoff had meltdowns on stream.

This, however, all changed on February 3, 2021, when Raven finally announced the first major ban wave in months, resulting in the bans of over 60,000 accounts. Since then, the community has requested more regular communication regarding cheating, and just six days later, it seems Raven is holding onto that promise.

In a Tweet, Raven has announced that another ban wave has hit Verdansk, but has not opted to disclose the number of players. They have also stated that anti-cheat efforts are to be stepped up, with “more to come.”

We’re unsure of what “more to come” actually means, but for anti-cheat measures, this could be in the form of more blockades and measures taken to ensure new players have a tougher time making duplicate accounts to cheat on.

Thus far we have forced phone authentication for PC, so we could be looking at more systems that involve player authentication.

Hopefully, we get word from Raven in the coming weeks on what’s ahead in the fight against cheaters in our beloved battle royale.

Crazy Warzone glitch sends player to the Gulag without dying

A crazy glitch in Call of Duty Warzone is sending players to the Gulag randomly without the player even dying.



CoD: Warzone Gulag bug

A bizarre glitch in CoD: Warzone has sent a player to the Gulag in the middle of his game, without even dying.

Warzone Season 2 seems to be the home of odd-ball glitches, with players’ heads disappearing, and even another glitch just straight up adding an additional player to the 1v1 Gulag.

Now, it seems like another bug has been added to the list of bugs to look out for, and this one is about as random and annoying as they get.

Apparently, in the new Exfiltration game mode, things can get a bit out of control for players out of seemingly nowhere, and you may get sent to the Gulag along with your entire squad for no reason.

In a video posted to Twitter by user @The7thSleeper, we see a highlight of the user’s stream where he is simply flying a helicopter by Airport in-game.

While attempting to land to give his fellow squadmates support, the game instantly cuts off, releasing the player into the gulag without a death.

Dazed and confused, the streamer states “Why am I in the Gulag right now?” before the video cuts off. We can assume this situation must’ve been both confusing and frustrating, as the streamer didn’t even die in-game to be put in this situation.

What we do know is that as the streamer was flying, his two teammates died in a gunfight nearly at the same time.

Perhaps, these two downs somehow confused the game into thinking there was a squad wipe, and the game took the whole squad into the Gulag at the same time.

As far as we’re aware, we’ve only seen this bug occur in the new Exfiltration mode. Since we aren’t aware of the exact conditions that trigger this issue, there is no way to steer clear of this bug happening to you.

Luckily, the odds of this happening seem to be low, so we’d like to bet you won’t run into this often.

If you do run into this bug, be sure to tweet us a clip on Twitter @charlieINTEL so we can take a look.

Best Oden loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 2

The Oden deals significant damage at range, so here are the best attachments and perks to dominate with it in Warzone Season 2.



Warzone Oden

With a low fire rate but high damage, the Oden is an extremely strong choice of weapon to use in Warzone Season 2. Here are the best attachments and perks to maximize its potential.

As Warzone has developed, fights are often decided at range. Long-range guns such as the AUG, Kar98k, and AMAX have shot up in popularity, and, if built right, the Oden can contend with any of these weapons. Modern Warfare’s Assault Rifles are usually fast firing with low recoil, but the Oden prioritizes damage per bullet over fire rate, allowing it to blast away enemies’ armor at any range.

We’ve put together the attachments and perks you should run to dominate Verdansk with the Oden.

Oden Warzone Season 2 class

  • Muzzle: Colossus Suppressor
  • Barrel: Oden Factory 730mm
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 30 Round Mags

The Oden dominates in the long lines of sight that Warzone offers. With a slow fire rate but a powerful punch, the Oden is devastating in the hands of an accurate player. We’ve built this Oden to maximize its accuracy and damage at range, making it a great choice for any player.

To increase the weapon’s effective damage range and recoil control, we’ve added the Colossus Suppressor. While large and heavy, this silencer improves the Oden’s recoil control, bullet velocity, and damage range. For an extra bonus, you’ll be hidden from the mini map when firing.

To further improve its damage range, the Oden Factory 730mm barrel is a perfect choice. Your damage over range will be improved further, but you won’t be slowed down as much as if you use the 810mm option. It’s worth using the popular Commando Foregrip for extra recoil control, too.

For optics, there’s no better scope than the VLK 3.0x Optic. This magnified scope offers great visibility at all ranges, which will make aiming for the head and chest much easier when using the Oden at distance. And finally, to make sure you can drop several enemies before reloading, the 30 Round Mags will be necessary.

Best perks to use with Warzone Oden

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

The Oden is one of the heaviest Assault Rifles Warzone has to offer, so if you want some extra mobility while navigating the map, Double Time is the perk for you. You’ll be able to Tactical Sprint for longer, and crouch walk faster to help strafe in engagements.

As this Oden is built for long-range, it’s worth running an SMG or Shotgun for fighting up close, and Overkill will allow you to carry two primary weapons. Once you have your guns, you should try to get Ghost from your next loadout to also be hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

And finally, with the weight of the Oden, weapon swapping will be agonizingly slow, so Amped will remove that delay, allowing you to switch guns instantly.

Try out the Oden with these attachments and perks in Warzone Season 2, and you’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

If you’re looking to overhaul your Call of Duty: Warzone loadouts, you can check out our guides on some of the weapons dominating the meta right now.

Dr Disrespect explains why Warzone is the best battle royale

Streamer Dr Disrespect has explained why he believes Warzone is the best battle royale experience out there.



Dr Disrespect Warzone

Streamer Dr Disrespect has explained why he believes Call of Duty: Warzone is the “funnest battle royale out there,” comparing it to another BR giant, Apex Legends.

Streamer Dr Disrespect is no stranger to the battle royale genre, having been playing and streaming the wildly-popular mode since its infancy. Now, in 2021, Warzone, Respawn’s Apex Legends, and Fortnite lead the pack, and Dr Disrespect has explained why he believes Warzone is the best there is.

Doc has been switching between Valorant and Warzone for his YouTube streams, as they offer wildly different shooter experiences. After a viewer claimed that “Warzone is dead and CoD players are hurting,” Dr Disrespect hit back, explaining why Warzone is his favorite battle royale.

“When I go to Warzone I know what I’m going to get,” he explained. “I’m going to get a fix of, probably, the funnest BR out there.”

Dr Disrespect admitted that “Apex is cool,” but “you get everything with Warzone – it’s fast-paced, you know what you’re getting, you’re landing hot, you’re constantly getting engaged. It’s that fix, it’s that experience.”

For a chaotic, “fast-paced” shooter experience, Doc thinks there’s nothing better than Warzone. Then, for a more tactical experience, “Valorant is just a good contrast,” he explained. “I love where we’re at, going back and forth, it’s good getting the full spectrum.”

With Warzone lobbies’ holding more players than other battle royales such as Apex Legends, games are faster-paced than the traditional BR experience. Kill-races have become the popular competitive format, as the game’s action-packed nature allows for it. While playing in a wager match, Aydan and the rest of his squad shattered the World Record for kills, eliminating 162 players in a single match.

With Warzone gearing for a Zombie outbreak in Verdansk, Season 2 is set to get all the more chaotic.
