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.

How to level up Warzone weapons fast in Vanguard Zombies Shi No Numa
Here’s how you can use the Shi No Numa Zombies map to level up Warzone and Vanguard weapons extremely fast.
Vanguard’s guns have a whopping 70 levels to grind through, but luckily, there’s a way to use the Shi No Numa Zombies map to level up weapons incredibly fast. Here’s everything you need to do.
Both Vanguard and Warzone players have been extremely critical of how long it takes to level up a weapon, especially with how often the meta changes. Vanguard’s Zombies mode is a care-free way to level up your weapons, and Season 4’s Shi No Numa has made this process even faster.
Thanks to a cheeky spot found in Shi No Numa, players can level up their Vanguard and Warzone guns extremely quickly, and here’s how.
Level up Vanguard & Warzone weapons fast in Shi No Numa
Vanguard Zombies players can find their way to a glitch spot that allows them to quickly kill Zombies and achieve high rounds without taking any damage, leveling up their chosen weapon extremely fast.
Thanks to YouTuber DWAE, here’s how to level up your guns fast in Vanguard Zombies Shi No Numa:
- Save up 2,000 points in Shi No Numa’s spawn room
- Go down the stairs and past the Flogger Trap to the Fishing Hut
- Head to the bridge
- Jump on top of the railing
- Go prone and crawl inside one of the posts
- Zombies will surround you but won’t attack, so you can keep meleeing them to rack up kill after kill
To ensure that you’re dealing as much melee damage as possible, you should try to get your hands on the Bloodlust Covenant. This will increase your melee damage, allowing you to quickly batter your way through wave after wave of the undead, leveling up your weapon as you go.
This strategy can bring you to incredibly high rounds of Shi No Numa, but beware of Boomshreiers, as they can still damage you when you’re in this spot.
This is clearly unintended, so it’s highly likely that Treyarch will patch it out in a future Vanguard update. Season 4 Reloaded is scheduled for late July, but there should be some smaller updates over the next few weeks.

Warzone players beg Raven to reverse “stupidest” Loadout change ever
Warzone Pacific players are calling for Raven Software to reverse the “stupidest” change ever to weapon Loadouts.
Warzone Pacific players are frustrated by the Loadout selection changes in the game and are calling for Raven Software to reverse them in a future update.
Before Warzone Pacific Season 4 arrived, the Loadout Drop selection would hover over your previously selected choice and this would allow you to select your ideal Loadout in the pre-game lobby right away.
However, Raven Software felt that too many players were accidentally selecting the wrong loadouts so they made a major change to Loadout picking in the Season 4 update. Now, players are begging the devs to reverse this change.
In Warzone Pacific Season 4, when you open the Loadout Drop selection, the cursor always starts at the top of the Loadout Drop selection list, so you might end up picking your first Loadout rather than your preferred one.
Reddit user ‘Putridzzz’ expressed their frustration with this in the Warzone Pacific subreddit, claiming that it’s making them pick the wrong Loadouts and describing the change as extremely “stupid.”
The Redditor stated: “It’s ridiculous that even setting a Loadout to your “Favorite Loadout” still makes you pick your first Loadout. I have to scroll through all the Loadouts to pick the right one.”
Many of the commenters agreed that this change is irritating as it causes players to accidentally pick the wrong Loadout or spend time scrolling through the list looking for their favorite one in every game.
One user claimed that the biggest problem is that you’re unable to select your preferred weapon loadout quickly because you need to go down to the middle of the list. They then added that this change makes picking your guns in the pre-game lobby feel pointless.
A few users suggested that the developers make a change that allows them to rearrange their Loadouts without having to build them from scratch. This would make it easier to quickly pick your favorite loadouts in the game.
According to one commenter, the addition of a “Switch spots” option instead of “copy and replace” would be beneficial since it would let you move your desired Loadout to the top instead of having to remake one.
After players first slammed this change, Raven Software’s Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins responded to these complaints on Twitter, reassuring the community that they would get used to it.
Despite this, discontent continues over this change, and it remains to be seen whether or not the developers will implement another major tweak that will allow players to immediately select their favorite weapon Loadouts.
