Members of the Call of Duty: Warzone community have been spotting extremely blatant hackers recently, as players are using unusual Operator skins when playing that point towards hackers creating their own custom skins.

The battle royale game of Warzone has had a great deal of success following its release in 2020. The popular Call of Duty title has provided a great deal of entertainment to the community thanks to its unique take on the battle royale genre.

However, despite all of the game’s success so far, one major issue that has caused frustration among players is the number of hackers that the game has seen and continues to see.

Despite a huge number of players having already been banned for cheating, players are continuing to run into hackers using various kinds of cheats to gain an unfair advantage over their opponents.

One recent hack that has caught the community’s attention is where hackers can drastically change an Operator’s skin to something that is not supposed to be available in the game, blatantly telling whoever sees them on Verdansk that they are hacking the game.

This Operator skin-changing hack became a recent topic of discussion on the official Warzone subreddit when community member jherbz87 posted an image of the Dr. Karlov Operator wearing a pink suit that is nowhere close to what the character is intended to look like in the game.

This image was accompanied by a warning from jherbz87 stating for players to watch out for players who have altered their Operators to look like this pink suit character, as they have encountered them twice and witnessed them hacking with the one above having gotten 46 kills in that particular match.

The majority of hacks that players will use to cheat and gain advantages over their opponents consist of aimbots and wall-hacks that allow them to lock on to players when aiming and see them through walls.

However, this cosmetic hack looks to be this hacker winking at other players and broadcasting their cheating intentions.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded’s Iron Trials ’84 mode has been received exceptionally well by the community, with the developers now teasing a custom lobby option for the future.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded didn’t just shift the weapon meta with buffs and nerfs. It also introduced arguably Warzone’s most successful limited-time mode, Iron Trials ’84.

Despite replacing Duos, Iron Trials has been received very well by players, with some even asking the developers to make the mode permanent.

As the mode has been enjoyed so much by players, it seems the devs are planning to provide players with an option for it in custom lobbies, as a new tweet suggests.

Iron Trials ’84 is Warzone Season 5’s new mode that players have loved as of recent. Boasting a higher time to kill, reimagined loot, and a lack of free loadouts, Iron Trials was introduced as Warzone’s toughest mode yet.

Some players have loved the mode so much that they have been asking the developers to keep it in the game permanently and possibly use it as the base of a new ranked mode that players have wanted for so long.

Although there is no confirmation about Iron Trials staying in the game, especially as it is still set to be removed on September 30, the devs have teased the mode coming to custom lobbies.

In a recent tweet, JGOD asked Raven Software, “Any chance Iron Trials can be added to the Customs options in tomorrow’s playlist Update?”

Raven then responded that there were no plans to add it in the upcoming playlist update but didn’t rule out its arrival in the future.

“As for customs… it’s not coming ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ is all we can say for now.”

At the end of this sentence, the winky face definitely points to future plans to bring this mode to custom lobbies, so the community can enjoy it whenever they want.

Hopefully, players will see more of Iron Trials for Warzone’s future, and perhaps they plan to carry it through to Call of Duty: Vanguard when the game integrates with Warzone.

How to slide cancel in CoD: Warzone Season 5

Slide canceling is an essential tool in any Warzone player’s armory, and we’ve got everything you need to master the slide cancel movement mechanic.

Running in Call of Duty Warzone

Warzone players are always looking for new ways to gain an upper hand on opponents, and if you’re looking to use movement to outwit your enemies, slide canceling is a must-have tool in your armory. 

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded introduced various new changes to the battle royale, including weapon buffs and nerfs, as well as a brand-new Iron Trials ’84 mode. However, the mechanics remain the same.

Great movement can often mean the difference between victory and defeat. Slide canceling is easily the most important trick you can use to improve your mobility in combat during a Warzone match.

Combat in Warzone

How to slide cancel on PC in Warzone

Anyone who played Modern Warfare will be well aware of slide canceling, and it’s still an incredibly useful trick to wield in Warzone. It lets you chain together Tactical Sprints to move much faster than usual.

To do it on PC, you’ll need to change some keybinds to make it possible, but the mechanic is helpful no matter which platform you play on. Just go into the key settings and Rebind your left CTRL-key to “Change Stance/Slide.”

This will let you go prone while pressing that key. Here’s how you can slide cancel in Warzone:

  1. Double-tap your left Shift button to start Tactical Sprinting
  2. Hold the left CTRL key to slide while you’re in the middle of your Tactical Sprint
  3. Immediately press CTRL again to crouch, so you return to a standing position.

How to slide cancel on consoles in Warzone

Slide canceling is much easier to do when playing Warzone with a controller. Here’s how you can get it done:

  1. Double-tap the left analogue stick to activate Tactical Sprint
  2. Hold Circle/B to start sliding
  3. As soon as the slide begins, tap Circle/B again to crouch
  4. Press X/A to return to a standing position

As soon as you hit the ground, tap it again to stand back up and repeat the process. Knowing how to Warzone slide cancel is easy in theory but will take some practice to master.

Sneaking up on your enemy in Warzone

Hopping into a private match in Warzone will help you learn how to control it without worrying about enemies trying to pick you off.

That covers everything you need to know about slide canceling in Warzone. Once you’ve got it down, you’ll be able to move much quicker around the map and use it to evade players while giving yourself a leg up in close-range gunfights.

Warzone September 23 update patch notes: Iron Trials ’84 changes, weapon buffs & nerfs, more

Raven Software has officially revealed the Warzone September 23 update patch notes, containing significant changes such as a Bullfrog nerf.

Warzone September 23 update patch notes

A new set of changes have arrived for Call of Duty: warzone with the September 23 update patch notes that have been revealed by Raven Software.

Season 5 Reloaded has brought major changes to the world of Warzone with The Numbers Event, Mobile Broadcast Stations, Iron Trials ’84, and various weapon buffs and nerfs.

However, Raven Software is still working on the Call of Duty battle royale to ensure it is the best it can be with the Warzone September 23 update patch notes set to bring game-changing alterations to the game.

Two of the most significant changes in the Warzone September 23 update patch notes are no doubt a nerf to the Bullfrog SMG and a slight buff for the Krig 6 Assault Rifle.

Here is everything you need to know about the Warzone September 23 update patch notes.

Modes

Iron Trials ’84

The following changes are exclusive to the Iron Trials ’84 mode:

  • Buy Stations
    • The Specialist Token has been added
    • Supply Run discounts are now 50% on every item except Team Redeploy (100%), Loadout Drop Marker (10%), and Specialist Token (10%)
    • The Hardline Perk now gives a 25% discount to every item except Self Revive (20%), Loadout Drop Marker (10%), and Specialist Token (20%)

We suspect very few people will be able to say theyโ€™ve purchased a Specialist Token. However, we do feel there is an opportunity to provide high tier Players with additional impactful outlets for their hard earned resources. Additionally, further enabling purchasing power with Hardline is something we would like to continue to explore.

  • Contracts
    • Contract Cash rewards (per Player) have been reduced. Multiplier values are unchanged.
      • Recon
        • $1,300 down to $1,100
      • Scavenger
        • $2,500 down to $1,600
      • Bounty
        • $3,800 down to $2,500
      • Supply Run
        • $1,300 down to $1,200

We recognize that this may be a polarizing change, but we feel it is a necessary one. When we gate access to Loadouts behind a large price tag, as is the case, we force players to continue moving around the map. This works to disincentivize camping. While we do not anticipate this change will have a large impact on the most skilled Players – those who stay put and avoid engagements will find themselves resource strained and quickly falling behind. This is part of how we subtly encourage map movement and fighting. Additionally, we feel scavenging, being resourceful, and barely scraping by is part of what adds to the charm and intensity of the Trials. This dynamic makes room for, and emphasizes other facets of skill like movement, teamwork, strategy, and map knowledge. By delaying Loadout acquisition, we are further smoothing out player power such that each increase to it is much more noticeable and allows more room for those secondary skillsets to shine. We will be monitoring the mode and Player feedback closely to ensure this change is having the intended effect.

  • Gulag
    • Light Machine Guns (except the RPD (BOCW)) and all Tactical Rifles have been removed from Gulag Loadouts.

We feel an emphasis on Submachine Guns and Assault Rifles better suits this version of the Gulag.

  • Melee
    • Weapons will no longer deal more than 120 damage per melee hit.
       
  • Loot
    • Armor Satchel, Gas Mask, and Self Revive drop rates have been reduced
    • Ground Loot XM4 (BOCW) attachments have been updated
    • Ground Loot Bullfrog (BOCW) attachments have been updated

The XM4 (BOCW) and Bullfrog (BOCW) Attachments are now more closely aligned with popular builds.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed additional collision issues with various elements on Rebirth Island allowing Players to exploit/peek/shoot through them.
  • Fixed an issue with the Bullfrog (BOCW) that reduced recoil while firing.

Weapons

Submachine Guns

  • Bullfrog (BOCW)
    • ADS Speed decreased by 9%
    • Movement Speed decreased by 1%
    • ADS Movement Speed decreased by 2%

The Bullfrog (BOCW) is a true jack of all trades. It has great Mobility, Effective Damage Range, Handling, and base Magazine Capacity – which would often act as a free Attachment. These changes, in conjunction with a Recoil bug fix, will bring the Bullfrog (BOCW) much closer to the competition. 

  • Shotgun Bravo (BOCW)
    • Maximum Damage Range decreased from 4.5 to 3.5 meters
    • Second Damage Range decreased from 8.1 to 5.5 meters
    • Third Damage Range decreased from 13.2 to 9.9 meters

The Shotgun Bravo (BOCW) has been incredibly dominant due to its Effective Damage Range, Magazine Capacity, Mobility, and Rate of Fire. By reducing its Effective Damage Ranges, the Shotgun Bravo (BOCW) will begin to feel more like a Shotgun and less like a Sniper.

Attachments

Barrels

  • Krig 6 (BOCW)
    • 19.7โ€ Takedown
      • Horizontal Recoil Control increased from 8% to 9%
    • 19.7โ€ Ranger
      • Vertical Recoil Control increased from 8% to 9%
    • 15.5โ€ Contour
      • Horizontal Recoil Control increased from 4% to 5%
      • Vertical Recoil Control increased from 4% to 5%
    • 15โ€ CMV Mil-Spec
      • Horizontal Recoil Control increased from 8% to 9%
      • Vertical Recoil Control increased from 8% to 9%

Given the Krig 6โ€™s (BOCW) most recent adjustments, we felt it was appropriate to increase the effectiveness of its Recoil Control Attachments slightly. 

  • AK-47 (BOCW)
    • 18.2โ€ Takedown
      • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 11.1% to 10%
    • 20โ€ Liberator
      • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 11.1% to 10%
    • 18.2โ€ VDV Reinforced
      • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 5.5% to 4%
      • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 5.5% to 4%
    • 20โ€ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
      • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 9% to 8%
      • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 9% to 8.5%
         
  • XM4 (BOCW)
    • 13.7โ€ Takedown
      • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 11.3% to 10%
         
    • 13.7โ€ Ranger
      • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 11.3% to 10%
         
    • 13.5โ€ Reinforced Heavy
      • Horizontal Recoil Recoil Control decreased from 5.5 to 4%
         
    • 13.5โ€ Task Force
      • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 9% to 8%
      • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 9% to 8%
