New Warzone hackers have started to use a third-person camera cheat to exploit FOV settings. Here’s everything we know about the new hack that has taken over Warzone servers.
Call of Duty: Warzone was officially released on March 10, 2020. It was Activision’s take on the battle royale genre built on the brand new Modern Warfare engine. This game has since risen to the top among the popular BR titles.
However, as the game garnered mass appreciation from the community, a rampant issue started to surface with the game’s rising popularity. Due to the absence of a solid kernel-level anti-cheat, the game became littered with hackers. The hacker pandemic led to Warzone’s loss of streamers, content creators, and a massive chunk of Warzone’s player base.
With this in mind, Activision introduced its own anti-cheat system, RICOCHET. It has been effective so far and has reportedly countered over half of the cheats out there. As it counters old cheats, hackers find their ways to disrupt the game with new types of malicious applications. This time, they found a new cheat that can change player FOV to third person.
Warzone’s Third Person FOV Hacks
Hackers have been the worst part of the overall Warzone experience. Aimbot, wallhacks (ESP), unlock tools and speed hacks are some of the notorious cheats seen in the game. But most of them have become useless since RICOCHET started shadowbanning them and created separate lobbies for hackers.
Even though hackers have started to decrease in numbers, a new cheat has surfaced. It allows players to unlock their FOV cap and switch to a third-person view making it easier for them to spot enemies.
The clip above shows how the player uses the third-person view to manipulate his FOV drastically. After the clip had surfaced, the creator received hate comments and was severely mocked for openly boasting about his malicious efforts.
However, this is not a game-breaking cheat; rather, it’s more of an annoyance for players. Nonetheless, any sort of third-party interference should not be there in the game. So, it is still unclear how Activision plans to counter these trivial hacks.
