There are many things that are annoying when someone is hacking. However, sometimes people use the power of hacking for a laugh. A joke. A ha-ha. That seems to be the case, at least so far, with the arrival of flying boats in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
In recent days, videos like the one above have surfaced of cheaters, hackers, what have you, floating around in the latest version of Warzone. While it’s annoying that people cheat, this is actually extremely funny. My favorite video, embedded above and also on YouTube (opens in new tab)depicts a jankily floating boat sailing through the air before exploding, all set to a gruesome recorder rendition of the theme from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
Because these are basically the worst pirates you’ve ever seen.
Other videos, such as a six minutes one (opens in new tab) posted to YouTube by cheaters themselves show extended scenes of flying boats as players get in and out and generally laugh really hard at what’s going on. I have yet to see one of these videos where almost everyone is not entertained.
What’s important here is that flying vehicle cheats showed up in the old versions of Warzone before they got squashed, and that Warzone 2 is protected by the same internal Ricochet anti-cheat that Warzone 1, Vanguard, and Modern Warfare 2 use. There’s not yet a large-scale cheating epidemic like there was at the kickoff and early days of the original Warzone, but this is a great way to cheat and hack to show their heads.
I mean honestly, get in the boat, brother.
Get in the boat.
