After being invited to Infinity Ward by Activision, streamer FIVEBYFIVEx has been permanently banned from Warzone after being accused of cheating.
Warzone streamer FIVEBYFIVEx was permanently banned recently, being accused of cheating shortly after being invited to Infinity Ward by Activision themselves.
FIVEBYFIVEx was shadow banned last week, and now the content creator’s account has officially been “perma banned.”
The streamer tried to reach out to Activision to solve the ban, but it seems the developers were not convinced as the “bans are final” and they have “never reversed a ban.”
The streamer claims that they “never cheated, VPN’d, unlock tool, camo glitch, (or) anything,” but clearly Activision have their reasons for banning FIVEBYFIVEx. The ban happened after the streamer had a “40 bomb, and then a couple of 30 bombs,” claiming that people had mass reported the account.
FIVEBYFIVEx claims that the ban is “for no reason,” and is actually a “mistake.” The Warzone streamer now has to “start back at 0,” and is open to anyone checking their PC and gameplay to see if they actually did anything wrong.
It’s unclear why the streamer was banned, but they won’t be getting their account back. It’s especially surprising as this streamer was also actually invited to Infinity Ward for a playtest of Modern Warfare 2.

DEADROP dev responds as fans accuse CoD of stealing skin from Dr Disrespect game
Dr Disrespect fans are convinced Activision copied a Variant his game for their latest Warzone skin, and a DEADROP dev has responded.
Activision dropped Warzone and Vanguard’s Tracer Pack Malware Ultra Skin but players immediately noticed a striking similarity with Dr Disrespect’s DEADROP, and it looks like it’s even prompted a response from a Midnight Society developer.
Not long after Activision had to apologize for copying artwork from an independent artist, plagiarism accusations are flying once again. This time concerning Vanguard and Warzone’s new Doomslayer skin which Dr Disrespect fans immediately recognized.
Dr Disrespect’s ‘vertical extraction shooter’ DEADROP is currently in development, and there have already been plenty of comparisons with Call of Duty — mostly from Doc himself. He’s previously said that Modern Warfare 2 can’t “match” DEADROP.
Those who have bought a DEADROP Founders Pass have received one of 10,000 “Variants,” which are unique in-game characters. Senior developers have shown off their Variants, and many think they are the inspiration for Call of Duty’s latest bundle.
The Tracer Pack Malware Ultra skin dropped in Warzone and Vanguard on August 15, featuring a hooded sci-fi character with a skull-faced digital visor. Those words could also be used to describe DEADROP founder Robert Bowling’s Variant, and players were quick to make the comparison.
“Damn, they had to scrap the Dog they ripped off then went straight for a DEADROP variant,” replied one Twitter user. “Looks like whoever created this skin TRIED to copy the Variant of one of the leaders of [Midnight Society],” commented another.
While not a direct response, Bowling, who’s an ex-Infinity Ward dev, tweeted: “At least name it after me.”
Not everyone was convinced that the skin was a straight copy though, as some said that it’s a classic sci-fi design that’s been around longer than DEADROP.
We’ll need to wait and see whether Activision respond to the accusations, but Doc fans are convinced. In the meantime, check out how NICKMERCS will be “brutally honest” if he thinks DEADROP is trash.

Warzone players claim lag is making game “unplayable” after Season 4 Reloaded patch
Warzone Pacific players are frustrated with the severe lag that is making the game “unplayable” in Season 4 Reloaded.
Numerous Warzone Pacific players have reported experiencing severe lag which has made the game unplayable after the Season 4 Reloaded update went live.
However, the seasonal update also brought a frustrating problem to the popular Call of Duty title, as reports are coming in of players experiencing lag which makes it impossible to enjoy the game.
When the Season 4 Reloaded update first went live, there were numerous reports of a strange glitch that would cause frame skips and ping spikes. Now players are experiencing another issue in the game.
Reddit user ‘Clip_It_’ claimed that the game has been “unplayable” for a few days and shared a short clip of them experiencing massive lag spikes when playing in the Warzone Pacific subreddit.
In the clip, lag spikes would occur which would cause both the player and his opponents to repeatedly freeze for a few seconds before moving again. The Redditor added that this has been happening in almost every game.
This is a problem that’s also being faced by other players, as a few commenters shared their own recent experiences with the lag spikes. It seems that some Warzone maps are more affected by this than others.
One of the commenters claimed that this issue is more prominent when playing on Caldera, as matches there are “much laggier” compared to those held on the Rebirth Island or Fortune’s Keep maps.
This claim was corroborated by a few other players in the thread, as one of them reported having smooth games on Fortune’s Keep and Rebirth Island while experiencing terrible lag on Caldera.
The player added: “It’s the same thing for me. I can’t play [Caldera] without it skipping. [I] have never gotten below 90 ping, but can have smooth games on Rebirth and FK.”
The developers have yet to address the lag issues that have popped up in Season 4 Reloaded Hopefully, a fix will be implemented for them in a brand-new Warzone Pacific update patch soon.

CoD fans reveal necessary change that could save Warzone 2
As players look forward to Warzone 2, they have revealed one of the issues with the current Warzone that needs to change.
With Warzone 2.0 on the horizon, Call of Duty fans have revealed one of the most important changes that are needed for it to succeed.
Warzone is coming to the end of its lifespan, and while the upcoming Season 5 update is looking to give the incredibly successful BR a great send-off, players are hungry for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
While not a lot is actually known about Warzone 2, players, of course, have their recommendations and suggestions for the game. Most of these Warzone 2 wants are based on the player’s experiences with the first installment.
Lag and performance issues have been a dominant topic of player frustrations when it comes to problems with Warzone. Just recently, players had found a glitch with the ping system, which was causing very poor performance.
Now, Reddit user juicemtl has highlighted the latency issue in Warzone, saying that it “needs to stop if WZ2 wants to be successful.”
The user expands on his opinion in the comments, saying “I don’t care how good of a game WZ2 will be, if they can’t figure out a way to have the game run smoothly and if packet burst and bad servers are going to be the norm, the game will fail.”
Players in the comments of the Reddit post share similar experiences when it comes to lag and this error symbol in Warzone, with one Redditor saying “everytime that s*** pops up I lag lmao.”
While many seem to have experienced the problem, some feel that Warzone 2 will be successful regardless of server issues, as Warzone has done well even with them: “You’re joking right? If that was the case WZ would’ve failed a long time ago.”
We’ll have to wait and see how people receive Warzone 2 when it officially launches. With Modern Warfare 2 on the way and the Call of Duty Next event soon to come, it may not be long until we get our first look at the sequel to Warzone.
