Warzone devs respond to calls for “broken” Streamer Mode to be fixed

Raven Software has finally responded to top streamers’ requests to fix Warzone Season 3’s “broken” Streamer Mode.

Top streamers have been reporting for months that Warzone’s Streamer Mode is ineffective, and Raven Software has finally responded.

It’s well-known that Warzone streamers don’t play the same game as the rest of us. Broadcasting their gameplay live only invites players to try and join their sessions, which coined the term ‘stream sniping.’

Streamers often delay their streams and hide their screens to avoid snipers, but most games also offer a Streamer Mode to help. Top Warzone streamers have repeatedly asked the devs to fix their “broken” streamer mode, and Raven Software has responded.

Sometimes stream snipers are friendly and will bring the streamer loot and vehicles, but more often than not, they watch the streamer’s screen to pinpoint their location and attack them for a few seconds of fame.

The majority of Warzone tournaments take place in public matches, often in 2v2 kill races or timed events. A stream sniper, especially when they’re hacking, can often disrupt a whole event, and because of this, top streamers and pro players have been badgering Raven Software to implement a more effective Streamer Mode.

After NRG player Joseph “JoeWo” Wohala tweeted Raven Software on May 13, asking for a fix to the “broken” streamer mode, Raven responded.

“We’re listening,” they said, before asking “What kind of improvements would you ideally like to see to the current “Streamer Mode” setting?” They also asked Thomas “Tommey” Trewren, a Warzone pro for 100 Thieves, who has been particularly vocal about the streamer mode in the past.

Both JoeWo and Tommey suggested that when Streamer Mode is activated, it should hide the streamer’s name, rather than the current system of it hiding their opponent’s names. The majority of stream sniping happens when a player is killed by a recognizable name and pulls up the stream, so this would prevent this.

Some suggested that this would make it harder to report hackers during tournaments, but Tommey argued that the good would outweigh the bad, and you “gotta give and take.”

Raven Software has considerably upped their community engagement the past couple of months and even banned a player live on TimTheTatMan and CouRage’s stream.
