Symfuhny Warzone cheaters

Top Warzone content creators such as Symfuhny, JGOD, and BobbyPoff have said they have encountered no cheaters following Activision’s massive ban wave.

While Warzone cheaters have been plaguing the game since its launch in March 2020, Activision’s recent move against cheaters appears to have made a huge difference.

In Warzone Season 1, the cheating problem culminated in a perfect storm with top players quitting competitive, a streamer being disqualified from the Twitch Rivals tournament, and internet celebrity Vikkstar making headline news by quitting Warzone.

Following Vikkstar’s announcement, Activision gave the community an update on the cheating situation. They revealed they have banned 60,000 cheaters and have promised updates to their internal anti-cheat system.

This recent ban wave appears to have deterred cheaters, with top streamers and content creators reporting that they haven’t encountered any cheaters since.

Symfuhny said that after playing for nine and a half hours over the past two days, “I haven’t died to a cheater once I don’t think.”

Warzone content creator JGOD, tweeted out that he “ran into Zero Suspected Hackers/Cheaters/Stimmers” in his Warzone session after the ban wave.

And streamer BobbyPoffGaming, who has been exceptionally vocal in his hatred of Warzone cheaters, has said much the same as Symfuhny and JGOD.

“Two days ago I ran into nine hackers,” he described. “Yesterday I ran into three hackers. Today, I’ve run into zero hackers. With the last update, it basically reset all the coding for all these cheating companies, so they’re scrambling right now to try and get all their software up and running.”

BobbyPoff explained that websites selling hacks can usually get back up and running in a few hours, but this ban wave seems to have stumped them.

“I just hope that if they do get back up again Activision does something quicker,” he concluded.

Warzone players were unconvinced this ban wave would actually do anything, as Warzone cheaters could just make completely new accounts and start cheating again. However, it appears this ban wave has had an immediate effect.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone is set to being on April 22, with an initial event teased for April 21 starting at 12PM PT. Exact launch times for the new content will be announced soon.
