Warzone Cheater Appears In Anti-Cheat Ad - But Won't Stop Cheating

It's been a long time coming, but with cheaters ravaging Call of Duty: Warzone, Activision and Raven Software are finally clamping down on those who are turning Verdansk into a cheating paradise. Now, one player has featured in an anti-cheat ad and faced the wrath from above.

The latest debacle comes from TikTok user rushman360, who recently claimed he'd been hardware banned from the popular battle royale shooter.

Obviously, being hardware banned means you can't do the usual and controversial workaround of just setting up a new account. However, it seems there's more to the story.

Who is the latest Warzone cheater?

Posting on Twitter, the official Call of Duty account was laughing it up at rushman360's expense. Saying that over 100,000 cheaters have been given the boot, the account laughed that it's "p*ssed off" some cheaters. The video then played rushman360's reaction to having all of his accounts hardware banned - sorry 'bout it.

Rushman has also posted a video claiming he's been banned from Battle.net, which suggests Activision is taking this one seriously. What's most interesting is that Activision said it would "evolve" it's anti-cheat, but only after Rushman's original ban video. It's thought that something went wrong in rushman360's cheating software. Normally, there are techniques in place to hide your hardware ID, but by the looks of it, rushman360 has become the tool of his own demise.

There is a final twist, though. Since being "banned" rushman360 has posted numerous clips to his channels, where he still seems to be in Warzone and still cheating. His most recent video (below) comes from August 30 and shows him happily cheating his way through the game. Is this some sort of elaborate hoax on his behalf, on Activision's, or both? We're just as confused as you are, but either way, someone is telling porky pies.

What's next for Warzone cheaters?

During the recent Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal, Sledgehammer Games Studio Head Aaron Halen spoke about the new WWII-inspired version of Warzone, that will include a brand-new anti-cheat. Still, is it a case of too little too late? There have been swathes of prominent players who've turned tail and gone full Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 on Warzone to join the likes of Apex Legends

Things had reached an almost ludicrous level of cheating inside of Warzone, and while Activision has done its bit to try and shut down popular cheat sites, there were still glitches galore that let you do everything from clip inside walls to turning invisible. Also, who could forget the dreaded stim glitch?

We'd say we're at a turning point for Warzone, but to be honest, we aren't that sure. The title has made a small fortune for its publisher and developer in its first year, and with a Vanguard overhaul set to revamp things even more than Black Ops Cold War's '80s makeover, it's doubtful Call of Duty: Warzone is on its way out any time soon. Hey though, anti-cheat, that's good, right?
