Warzone 2 hack allows players to knife you from across the map | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

You never know what’s coming your way in Warzone 2, as hackers have been knifing players from across Al Mazrah. 

It’s no secret that both Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 have faced their own fair share of bugs and glitches since launch, although there haven’t been as many cheating reports as some expected. 

Hacking in Call Of Duty games had became such a big issue that Activision was forced to carry out numerous ban waves, as part of its overall anti-cheat campaign. 

Not too long ago, over 500,000 accounts were flagged by the company’s Ricochet anti-cheat process and ended up getting banned for various reasons. 

Despite Activision’s efforts, Warzone 2 can’t seem to keep hackers away entirely and there are increasing reports of various cheats, some of which are positively bizarre.

One player shared a clip where he caught the moment his character started getting stabbed out of thin air, as no enemy was within his melee range. 

What’s more suprising is that the player was inside a building at Sawah Village in the Al Mazrah map, looting a duffel bag, so he wasn’t exactly standing out in the open. 

After he got eliminated, the camera shifted to the killer, who was standing on the roof of another building, seemingly miles away from his victim. 

Others were quick to point out that this isn’t the first time this hack has appeared in Call Of Duty, as console players had also found a way to knife people from a distance in the original Modern Warfare 2. 

Another player recognised the hack as ‘the classic OPK mod’ which stands for ‘one position kill’. 

In their words, it clones your hitbox and puts it directly in front of the person modding, so they can do anything to your operator. 

The same player claimed they haven’t seen this in video games since Combat Arms was all the rage back in the 2010s. 

Weird stabbings haven’t been the only problem that Warzone 2 has at the moment. Developers were also forced to remove Building 21 from the DMZ mode, although the exact reason why remains unclear.
