There have been a lot of changes lately when it comes to the Warzone side of things in Call of Duty. One such thing that is not in place is anti-cheat software. However, a question needs to be asked: will there always be Warzone hackers?
The CDL Pro stance
Call of Duty League pros like Scump and Methodz, prolific Warzone players themselves, believe that there will never be a time when there will be no hackers in Warzone lobbies.
Former pros like Apathy and Zoomma believe this too, suggesting that active pros won’t even touch Warzone unless drastic changes are made. Changes like real anti-cheat software where hackers are instantly detected and blocked. Many professionals within the league find other games due to the lack of changes in the offseason.
The Call of Duty Warzone Pro stance
Warzone pundits like Aydan and Swagg all believe that Warzone could become extinct due to the lack of attention that hackers give Warzone. This is compared to other battle royale games like Fortnite and even Apex Legends with smaller budgets.
Some believe that there is hope where there are no hackers in lobbies. However, this remains to be seen. This means that this game mode has been without any real anti-cheat software for almost three years.
The Call of Duty Competitive Players
Many competitive players love the aspect of having many game modes in Warzone in order to compete at the highest level in the game mode. However, the need for anti-cheat is a problem as there are still plenty of hackers preventing a competitive atmosphere.
If you know and love Call of Duty the most, most likely you will play it anyway, but the retention will continue to decrease. This is the anti-cheat that is absent and will cause more hacking situations in the future.
The Call of Duty Casual
As mentioned earlier, if you love Call of Duty, you will be playing anyway. However, if you’re just getting into COD or just looking for another game to play. Are you sure you want to play a game where hacking is so prevalent? This is especially the case as it discourages many potential Call of Duty players. All in all, who knows if there will be a time when hackers won’t play a role anymore.
