Gamebattles Player Banned After Streaming Own Wall Hacks

Gamebattles Player Banned After Streaming Own Wall Hacks

The Call of Duty franchise has recently flexed its biceps by bragging of the Ricochet anti-cheat being added to Vanguard, as well as Warzone. However, it appears the developers have been using blow-up muscles, as the cheats are piercing right through the software and still running riot on the multiplayer game.

Recently, cheating accusations and self-confessions have made a mockery of the ranked leaderboards, as the second-best player on the mode was found to be using hacks, and the top-ranked player was also de-ranked a whopping 1,300 SR (a fifth of his overall points) due to having teamed with the said cheater. 

Now, a Gamebattles competitor has also laughed in the face of the Vanguard developers, until he made the stupid mistake of allowing his cheats to show on-stream. I mean, if you're going to be a cheat, maybe try and do it a little more sneakily?

Another Cheating Call of Duty Player Caught Red-Boxed

Gamebattles player "BBluring" has made the blunder of showing off wall-hacks in an official staked game, as seen through his stream. Opposing player "2me" saw the hacks being used on his stream, and took the opportunity to snap the cheats to be publicised on social media.

As seen in the following clip, the player can see red boxes through the stone structures on Demyansk, and also gets notified of when a player is in proximity by a "one enemy nearby" pop-up.

Hilariously, the player choked the kill in the clip, missing easy shots with his pistol before getting turned on. Seems that at least he didn't have aimbot toggle activated.

 

Having seen the clip go viral on Twitter, Gamebattles have revealed the user has been permanently banned from their platform, although it is yet unclear as to whether the player has been banned on Vanguard itself. 

"The team has been forfeited in the tournament in question & the player has been permanently banned from GameBattles. Thanks for letting us know!", said the account on Twitter.

The clip also caught the attention of the wider Call of Duty community, with the likes of Douglas "DougisRaw" Wolf laughing at the player's cover-up of: "I didn’t expect him to be there".

Vanguard and Warzone's cheating problems have only been heightened by the professional scene moving to PC set-ups rather than console, leaving players to switch to computers to compete in tournaments, where hacks are much more accessible. With Ricochet clearly being penetrated, maybe reverting to a console-focused game is needed.
