A number of top Warzone streamers came up against some friendly hackers in Verdansk who maximized them and gave them all available weapon locks. Now Raven has apparently released a silent update to end this.
Warzone players have been asking for anti-cheat software to stop hackers driving violently over Verdansk for over two years now, but so far there has been nothing but the occasional wave of bans.
Apparently, they have managed to find a quick solution to this hacking problem, where players used cheating to give other players the maximum level, all the weapon camos and attachments that should match.
Some great streamers experienced this, such as NICKMERCS and DiazBiffle, but no one was quite sure how or why it happened in the beginning.
The hack just happened with @NICKMERCS too, and the guys lose it 😭

It soon became clear that this was the work of hackers who wanted to use their powers for something else, leaving wallhacks and aimbot to try to give something back to society.
Although it can not be confirmed with 100% certainty yet, Call of Duty leakers report that Raven released a silent update to fix the hack, and prevented it from happening again.
On July 13, CallofDutyHope tweeted: “Modern Warfare / Warzone had a quiet update today, patching both level 1000 and max level of Cold War weapon hacks.”

Of course, without confirmation, it is impossible to say how accurate this is, although it is definitely something Activision and Raven Software want to get on top of sooner rather than later.
CallofDutyHope also tweeted that the hackers “leaked their own source code”, which is why the solution came so quickly. We have to wait for words from devs to find out if they really patched this hack.
