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.

New reports have claimed that Activision are currently developing Warzone 2, with the stand-alone sequel to Call of Duty’s battle royale set to release in 2023.

Activision release brand-new Call of Duty titles every year, with 2022’s game reportedly set to be a sequel to Modern Warfare. Since Warzone’s release in 2020, the game has received seasonal updates to coincide with the launch of the latest mainline game in the franchise, but this may not be the case in 2023.

According to reports, Activision are currently working on a sequel to Warzone, that could release alongside Treyarch’s expected 2023 Call of Duty entry.

According to a report from Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, Activision are currently working on a “new iteration” of Warzone, which will be a stand-alone. This is a marked change from today’s Warzone, which is built into 2019’s Modern Warfare, and runs on the same engine.

The information was included as part of Schreier’s report that Call of Duty’s next three releases will be available on PlayStation, following Microsoft’s blockbuster acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

Industry insider Tom Henderson claims that Warzone 2 will only be available on “current-gen consoles and PC,” meaning you’ll need an Xbox Series X or PS5 to play. There will be “no past weapon integration” either, meaning all the guns you have now will be missing.

At the time of writing, nothing is known about what will be included in this new title. We could see some major updates to the gameplay mechanics, along with new weapons, events, and maps, but nothing has been confirmed.

The stand-alone sequel is set to be the biggest shift that Warzone has seen since its launch in 2020. More details about Warzone 2 will probably become available in the coming months.

Activision Blizzard have committed to releasing the next three Call of Duty games on PlayStation, according to a new report from Bloomberg.

The gaming world was rocked on January 18 when Microsoft announced it was set to acquire Activision Blizzard in a deal nearing $70 billion. While 54% of Call of Duty fans polled are happy at the news, there has been some concerns about whether Microsoft would make the franchise exclusive to Xbox consoles.

Now, a new report claims that Activision’s flagship FPS will stay on PlayStation for at least the next three releases.

Bloomberg‘s Jason Schreier claims that “Activision had already committed to making the next few CoD games available on Sony’s console,” before news of Microsoft’s purchases broke.

That means Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare sequel, which is set to release later this year, Treyarch’s next entry in 2023, and a planned “new iteration of Call of Duty: Warzone” will all be playable on PlayStation consoles.

While Activision haven’t confirmed this publicly, Schreier states that he spoke to “four people with knowledge of the deal,” who have asked to remain anonymous.

While this is good news for Sony fans. the future of CoD on PlayStation is still difficult to predict. Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer previously stated that they “intended to honor all existing agreements” after the Activision Blizzard deal is complete, but didn’t mention what would happen once those agreements have ended.

Taking away Call of Duty from PlayStation would mark a seismic shift in the gaming industry, and for the franchise. It seems Call of Duty could change forever under Microsoft’s ownership, with talks ongoing about ending the franchise’s annual release schedule.

The servers for Call of Duty: Warzone are currently having issues. These issues began late on January 25, carrying into the morning of January 27.

Players attempting to jump into matches are being placed in a server queue. Unfortunately, the timer at the bottom of the screen doesn’t appear to be working, leaving Warzone fans sitting in the hope that they get into the game.

For those who do get past this screen, many are being met with a “Whitelist Timeout” error which forces them to quit the game. We’re not sure how long this downtime will last, and Raven have yet to acknowledge the issuers.
