Michael Grzesiek, popularly known as Shroud in the gaming community, is considered to be one of the best professional esports players in the world today. He is a former CS: Go player and the other games he plays include PUBG, Valorant and Call of Duty: Warzone. During a Call of Duty: Warzone match Twitch stream on August 15, the popular streamer got taken out by a cheater with an RAM-7, as per a report by GameRant.
The report says that the streamer began observing the player through the kill cam and soon came to the conclusion that the player was using some kind of a hack as he quickly killed a string of opponents. The weapon being used by the player comes with a lot of recoil and the report adds that without using attachments in the weapon, the player couldn’t have taken quick, successive kills. Shroud left the game upon realising that there was something wrong with the way the kills were being made.
Hackers have been a headache to casual and competitive players alike in Call of Duty: Warzone. By April itself, Infinity Ward had slapped bans to a total of 70,000 accounts in the game. Call of Duty: Warzone is probably the hottest battle royale title currently in the world. And you don’t need to purchase Modern Warfare to play it as it can be played for free online. To stem cheating on its platform, the publisher employed 24/7 monitoring “to investigate data and identify potential infractions”, identifying the use of possible cheats and hacks, streamlining the game UI and improving ways to report cheating in the game etc. Efforts have been made, but instances like this show that it will take longer for the battle royale game to solve the cheating problem.
