It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Warzone hackers. Yes, it's another day and another Warzone hack, as the Call of Duty battle royale experience is once again invaded by cheaters. While Warzone has always struggled with hackers, a viral video shows just how bad things have become. 

The RICOCHET anti-cheat is supposed to send Warzone cheaters straight to the Gulag, however, the average player knows this isn't the case. Even when 1v1 in that last chance saloon, chances are you'll come across some sneaky cheater in a teleporting helicopter.

Call of Duty: Warzone's 'Superman' hack goes viral

We recently covered how speed hackers were ruining the Warzone experience, and now, a viral 'Superman' clip has proved just how knowing cheaters are making the most of buyable exploits. Twitter account ModernWarzone has shared the clip of one cheater flying across the map like they're the Man of Steel.

More than just being able to traverse the Warzone map at ridiculous speed, it puts them firmly out of harm's way - presumably leaving them safe until the final circle, where they'll earn an easy win. The replies were filled with similar complaints, as well as a rise of TikTok accounts selling cheats. 

One critic complained, "First we got flying boats, now we have flying bots," while another added, "Been saying it for years the existence of Ricochet is a myth." A third said, "This my last time buying the game. Between the cheating & them not taking care of their customers; it’s a wrap."

Someone else complained about the continuing problems with riot shields and joked, "Soon all quality games will switch to kernel-level anticheat and these types of exploits will be a thing of the past. That won't get rid of riot shielders, though."

Warzone players convinced RICOCHET has been turned off

While complaints about RICOCHET continue, some have it one step further and claim that Activision has turned its anti-cheat off. As reported by Dexerto, Charlie Intel has shared a clip of streamer Lenun being picked off by cheaters using aimbot on a grenade launcher.

As Lenun is in a top 250 ranked lobby, there are concerns that the cheater has been able to get this far without being caught in RICOCHET's net. An unverified screenshot from Discord claims that Activision has actually disabled RICOCHET, although we're not sure why this would ever happen.

If RICOCHET is down, it might be best to avoid Warzone for now. As the Discord chat encourages people to go and actively exploit a lack of anti-cheat, it's a bit of a warzone out in Warzone at the moment. As we wait for the devs to confirm what's next with RICOCHET, we'll keep our eyes on the skies for flying Supermen.
