Warzone cheaters take to Facebook Gaming, see no bans

Facebook Gaming has become a safe haven for people who stream them cheating in online games, and players are starting to take notice.

Facebook Gaming has an issue with players streaming live footage of them cheating in Warzone, without punishment.

Streaming is a hobby enjoyed by millions, and these days, it’s easier than ever to start your own stream with consoles supporting live streaming to various platforms. All of these platforms focused on video game streaming, strictly forbid the use of cheats in online games while live.

For Twitch, this rule seems to be enforced strictly, resulting in bans of any users who stream cheats to the website. However, it appears Warzone cheaters have flocked to Facebook Gaming as a safe haven, considering their community guidelines do not include rules against players who cheat live, much like Twitch’s guidelines.

Twitch’s guidelines specifically out players who cheat or hack in any multiplayer game, and even go as far as to ban stream sniping. Facebook, however, does not expressly have this clause in their community guidelines.

A simple search of “Warzone cheats” revealed live streams and Facebook Gaming pages that have been up for months, hosting dedicated cheating streams.

A Safe Haven for cheaters

Since players are not breaking the terms of service, they are also able to reap the rewards of any regular Facebook Gaming streamer, including the ability to monetize their streams. Facebook allows donations much like Twitch, and since these streamers can pull in hundreds of curious viewers, they can make some money if they choose to donate.

After an outcry of comments on a Facebook Gaming stream with players accusing the streamer of breaking the rules, the streamer posted proof Facebook still had their page monetized.

As you can see from the above image, it seems Facebook’s Moderation team hasn’t yet taken notice of the damage players who cheat in online games can cause. These streams can be advertisements for other players to cheat, since they set the precident that players won’t be punished for their actions on the platform.

Players who stream cheats still get banned in game, but will not see the same repercussions on Facebook Gaming, so they can simply make a new account and continue streaming, where on Twitch their account would eventually be banned via the report system.

If you’d like to learn more about how or why these players cheat live on Facebook Gaming, YouTuber Rara has recently posted an interview with one of the streamers.

As of now, Facebook Gaming streamers who cheat still run rampant, with plenty of stream replays to view. We hope Facebook changes its streaming policies in order to ensure streamers can’t advertise or glorify cheats.

With Warzone Season 3 on the horizon, Call of Duty veteran and streamer Jack “CouRage” Dunlop offered devs his wish list of changes that he believes would majorly benefit the game.

Warzone certainly isn’t free from bugs and issues, with the dreaded Stim Glitch, almost invisible Roze skins, and overpowered weapons dominating every engagement.

While Raven Software has confirmed they are fixing some of the more annoying issues, such as the RC-XD being at the bottom of the Buy Station list and Sniper Scopes having no glint, there are several other issues players are desperate to have fixed.

Streamer and Call of Duty veteran CouRage has summed up the community’s feelings in a list of changes he feels the devs should make to improve Warzone.

Tweeting the Call of Duty and Raven Software accounts, CouRage said, “Hey! Just wanted to send over changes that I think would add a better quality of life to the game.”

His list is extensive, but here are some of the changes CouRage wants for Warzone:

  • Removal/refund of the Roze skin
  • Less Dead Silence and Stopping Power
  • No more fists Gulag ever again (current Gulag is best)
  • Adjust rocks on the map to be easier to traverse
  • Add FOV slider for console players
  • Make it easier to distinguish if enemy footsteps are above or below you

He also added that the new Sykov Pistol that has just been added to Modern Warfare and Warzone should be adjusted, as, with the right attachments, it’s unstoppable at close range.

“Really love Warzone!” he explained. “As someone who plays the game almost daily, I just want to see it thrive and be as successful as possible!”

CouRage concluding by saying that he is “More than happy to hop on a call with developers and provide clips to help improve the game! Really looking forward to more map/meta changes!”

It’s all but confirmed that Verdansk will undergo a 1980s overhaul once the season-ending nuke event has concluded, but as for bug fixes and weapon balance changes, we’ll need to wait until the official Season 3 patch notes drop to see what has changed.

When does Warzone & Cold War Season 3 start? Season 2 end date

Warzone & Black Ops Cold War Season 2 has finally dropped, but when will they end, and when will Season 3 commence?

Published

We’re fast approaching the end of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 2, so when does Season 3 begin and what does it have in store?

Ever since the integration of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone, we’ve seen a vast number of additions and changes to both games. The subsequent updates have allowed Verdansk to expand with Rebirth Island, and even incorporate Zombies into Warzone.

Warzone Season 2 has also introduced some other pretty hefty changes to the games including some pretty interesting map changes to freshen things up, and also two new weapons from Black Ops Cold War, the FARA 83 Assault Rifle and the LC10 SMG, that could shift the meta.

We’re already hearing mumblings and murmurs of potential new content for the future though, with Warzone Season 3 spying a huge revamp in April. So we begin to wonder, how long will Season 2 actually last for, and when can we expect CoD to drop Season 3 of both Black Ops Cold War & Warzone?

Warzone & Cold War Season 3 start date

Previous seasons of Modern Warfare and Warzone, before its numbered season reboot, usually lasted around 10 weeks, and this has proven to be the case for Warzone & Black Ops Cold War.

Season One officially began on December 16, 2020, with the newest season beginning on February 25, 2021. This is approximately a 10-week gap between both which is in keeping with type.

The current Battle Pass has presented a set date it’s expected to end, and a new season usually starts shortly after last season’s Battle Pass has expired. With the information we currently have, we can expect Season 3 to begin on April 22, 2021.

This lines up with the confirmed season end date of April 21, given in the first Warzone nuke event teaser. It says the event will go live at 12 PM, as Verdansk will be completely overtaken by the undead.

Cold War Season 3 weapons

Call of Duty leakers have discovered some upcoming weapons in Warzone’s game files. Since these files are usually only added when weapons are in the final stage before release, we might see them arrive in Season 3.

Among them was a fast-firing burst Assault Rifle that could potentially be a Tactical Rifle like the M16 and AUG. Another weapon in the files seemed to be an SMG described with ‘spray,’ which probably means that it boasts a high fire rate.

The classic Ballistic Knife from the original Black Ops will also be arriving in Warzone and Cold War in the upcoming season. This projectile melee weapon has become a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, so it’s an exciting addition.

The data miners also stated that a new full-auto pistol and a Baseball Bat melee weapon might be joining the game in the Season 3 Reloaded update or in Season 4.

New Cold War Season 3 Trailer hints at Warzone Verdansk crossover

On April 15, Treyarch’s Official Twitter account posted an interesting new teaser trailer that suggested where Season 3 could be heading next.

Here is the full Tweet accompanied by the trailer.

After unsuccessfully extracting Adler from Laos, the team has now been able to track down his, and Stitch’s, whereabouts to Verdansk. Given that Verdansk is facing the possibility of being nuked, it remains to be seen how the two games could potentially crossover.

Warzone & Cold War mid-Season 2 update

While we waited for Black Ops Cold x Warzone Season 3, Activision released a mid-Season update with a ton of new content on March 29 at 9PM PT.

This brought three new maps to the game’s multiplayer, with Golova for Fireteam, Mansion for Gunfight, and Miami Strike for 6v6. Also, for the Zombies fans out there, Sanatorium will be joining the roster of Ural Mountains maps available in the Outbreak game mode.

The ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle has also arrived, along with a load of weapon balancing in Cold War.

1980s revamp leaked for Warzone Season 3

We got a first look at what the next evolution of Verdansk will be in a celebrity commercial that was posted to Twitter. It showed the map getting a 1980s makeover with a specific focus on a few key areas.

Stadium, Dam, Airport, and the surrounding forestry were the highlighted locations in the video, along with some changes in Downtown. Later, another possible teaser was discovered in Verdansk’s Superstore in the form of a poster for the 1980s Moscow Summer Olympics.

We expect more teasers for Season 3 to pop up around Verdansk and Cold War’s multiplayer, and the ones that have been found make Warzone’s 1980s overhaul seem all the more likely.

We’ve still a bit of time to go until Season 3 and Activision will be busy concentrating on making Season Two the best it can be. They have already rolled out large-scale ban waves to accounts that are found to be guilty of cheating.

Speculation will already be ongoing as to what we’ll see in Warzone Season 3, including a massive event that could change Warzone forever.

How to turn into a Zombie in Warzone Season 2’s Nuke Event

Find out how you can come back from the dead to become a killer Zombie in Warzone Season 2’s Nuke Event week.

Published

Warzone Season 2 is drawing to a close, and Activision has certainly spiced things up by allowing players to turn into a Zombie mid-game.

It’s official, destruction is on the way. The Zombie Containment Protocol has failed, with the situation reaching critical mass. As a result, Verdansk now has special areas that have become so contaminated with the Zombie presence that they can have severely adverse effects on players.

We imagine this will be for one week only to conclude the exciting twists and turns of Season 2, but for the time being, this is a full guide on how you can turn the tables on the enemy by becoming a Zombie during Warzone’s Nuke Event.

Where do you go to turn into a Zombie in Warzone?

The original Zombie invasion started when a large cargo ship docked on the shores of Verdansk. The Shipwreck POI was where it all began, and it seems we’re literally coming full-circle.

Shipwreck and Prison currently have two of the new infected Radiation Zones, which are also housing a new Stim Glitch. These Radiation Zones are the key to morphing you into one of the undead.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to become a Zombie in Warzone:

  1. Enter either a Duos, Trios, or Quads match – NOT a Solo game
  2. Land into one of the Radiation Zones
  3. You now need to die inside of the gas
  4. Once you’ve done that, your character will now deploy into Verdansk as a Zombie
  5. Go and get as many kills as you can!

Your controls and attacks are the same as what players received during the special Halloween Event of Warzone.

Players can use a Charged Jump, a Gas Grenade, and EMP Blast to inflict pain and punishment on any remaining players.

Be warned, even though you’ll become a Zombie, you’ll still only get one chance to be one, otherwise, it’s off to another lobby for you.

Whether you’re a fan of the Zombie invasion of Verdansk or not, it’s a bit of fun and is offering something a little bit different as we count down the days to the launch of Season 3.

Also, make sure you don’t miss out on Warzone’s Nuke Event, we have all the details here.
