YouTubers discover new method to avoid Warzone SBMM with reverse boost

A YouTuber has revealed the secret to reverse boost in Warzone and get into bot lobbies, bringing the competitive integrity of the game into question.

YouTuber Rara has revealed how to reverse boost and avoid SBMM in Call of Duty: Warzone, a secret kept among a few players across the Call of Duty community.

Skill based matchmaking, or SBMM is a system implemented in many modern first person shooters to match players against opponents of similar skill. This system can be adjusted to be strict or lax, depending on how the matchmaking algorithm is adjusted by the developers.

A vast majority of content creators and top-level players do not attempt to game this system, instead opting to roll with the punches and play in their assigned games. Due to their above-average skill level, they often make other “top” players look like low skilled players.

Due to the small amount of players abusing a “secret” reverse boosting method to get into easier games, the competitive integrity of Warzone is in question for tournaments, and many honest top-level players are getting the brunt of the backlash, being accused of playing in “bot lobbies”.

YouTuber Drift0r issued a warning to the community earlier this week once he discovered players were abusing this strategy, and now the beans have been spilled by YouTuber Rara.

Update: Drift0r has confirmed via Twitter that this reverse boost method is not the one he discovered earlier this week.

In Rara’s video, he exposes fellow YouTuber Hydro for using the reverse boosting method for his videos, accusing him of deceiving his audience into thinking he’s “the next big thing” for Warzone while breaking records playing against drastically lower-skilled players.

He calls for Hydro to add disclaimers in his content that he is reverse boosting, in order to be more transparent with his audience. Rara backs up his claims by using an online Warzone tracking tool to prove Hydros games are regularly against the bottom percentile of players, then proceeds to reveal exactly how players are getting easier Warzone lobbies.

How To Get Into Easier Warzone Games

You’ll have to watch Rara’s video to find out. We do not wish to detail the method, as it brings harm to the overall competitive integrity of Warzone into question.

Do we recommend abusing this? No. Do your favorite creators/pros abuse this? A large majority don’t. Most COD streamers have the integrity to not abuse this. It seems only a select few in the community abuse this on a regular basis. You can refer to Rara’s video to potentially identify players abusing this.

Warzone cheat provider CrazyAim taken down by Activision

Activision has taken aim at a cheater provider for Warzone as their site and discord have been shut down.

Warzone August 2 update patch notes

A popular Warzone cheat provider website has been taken down by Activision on August 4. The site was providing aim bot and other hacks for Warzone as a paid service.


The site, called CrazyAim.io, was providing a variety of cheats for Call of Duty players, with focus on Warzone hacks.

Their site now no longer exists, as it appears Activision has taken it down. Visiting their site sends a site error.

In addition, we’ve confirmed the site’s Discord server, where the users and owners would discuss the cheats and hacks, has also been shut down.

This is a small, but good step from Activision in the fight against the dramatic increase in hackers and cheaters in Warzone.

Some big content creators have been upset over the hacks and switched to Apex Legends instead.

It’s still not clear if Activision plans to launch a proper anti-cheat for Warzone.

The company’s executives have said in the past that they have “invested” a lot into fixing the hacking problem.

The last update from Raven on ban waves was in mid July, where they said 50,000 accounts were banned.

Modern Warfare players disappointed with Soap Operator after long wait

The new Soap Operator is officially out for Modern Warfare and Warzone, but some players aren’t satisfied with the way he looks.

Modern Warfare and Warzone players have finally been gifted the long-awaited Soap Operator, but some believe it doesn’t quite look right.

As well as the new CX-9 SMG and Mace, players have been enjoying Warzone and Modern Warfare in 2021.

For those who like the cosmetics, you may have been waiting for the new Modern Warfare Soap operator to drop. However, players don’t seem to be satisfied with it.

modern warfare soap operator

Reddit user oBeruno put a post up showing the issue with the new Modern Warfare Soap operator, stating, “Insert shampoo/detergent joke here.”

Ultimately many think that the new Modern Warfare Soap operator looks nothing like the original Soap from the original Modern Warfare series and wished he had a more similar look from the past.

The developers have either reworked the character and decided to change his appearance, or they have genuinely tried to recreate the classic Modern Warfare character and it just has not sit well with a large portion of the Call of Duty community.

When compared to the original Soap, they do genuinely look nothing alike, and you can see why people are jokingly calling this new Soap operator “shampoo/detergent.”

Players in the comments carried on the joke as well, with some saying: “That ain’t soap that’s deodorant.” Some were genuinely confused, asking: “That’s actually supposed to be soap?…”

Ultimately we think players are just dissatisfied with the detail in the character model, as the original Modern Warfare Soap has way more detail and depth, with a scar on his eye and a more recognizable face.

It’s a shame players aren’t happy with the new Modern Warfare Soap model. Hopefully, the developers can do something about it and give players more of a reason to buy the new operator.

For more on Modern Warfare and Warzone, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out how you can unlock the new CX-9 SMG and how players are calling for the White Phosphorus killstreak to be removed or buffed.
