CoD Warzone is Seeing a Serious Resurgence of Hackers in Season 6
For a brief period of time in Season 6 of CoD Warzone, hackers seemed to be a bit less prevalent. This, unfortunately, was not meant to last. EngineOwning, the website that developed cheats and hacks for Call of Duty is apparently back to their old antics, and the amount of cheaters has skyrocketed. It seems like they are the reason for the sudden increase in hackers, though it could be them in conjunction with other hack developers.
Why Bother With Hacks?
We’ve got quite a few players now pointing out they’ve encountered hackers throughout Warzone season 6. Even bigger names like FaZe Pamaj, who claims to be in a lobby that was hacked. His proof was that there were only 37 people in the second circle, which is admittedly quite suspicious.
Joe “MerK” DeLuca, a former pro player in his own right and analyst for the CDL says that EngineOwning’s site was back up. He’s not the only big name to speak up. Symfuhny and SypherPK have also said that hackers are back, though, for a while, we had a bit of a respite from them.
Symfuhny says “it was good for a week or 2 but today was rough”, so it sounds like those sad, sad hackers are back in a major way. According to Redrxk on Twitter, EngineOwning is back. Apparently, they released a new cheat and showed someone running walls live on a stream.
There are some on the Warzone forums saying that players using even this new cheat are getting automatic bans in-game, so we’re curious to know if that is actually true. EngineOwning’s website reportedly has downloads for that cheat disabled. They’ve listed the cheats as “detected”, meaning Warzone has caught them and it’s not advisable to use it.
If EngineOwning’s latest endeavor has already been found, it sounds like there are other major hackers producing results for Warzone Season 6 players. It’s really disappointing that the community has to deal with this kind of cheating at such a rampant level. There’s no need for people to cheat in competitive online games. Why not play a game and get good at it? The worst offenders are people that use these in their livestreamers or for content creation. That’s the absolute lowest of the low. Making money off of gameplay that isn’t even your own? That’s sad.
