Call of Duty: Warzone streamers have been getting banned on Twitch for actively showcasing cheats and hacks. As thousands of players enjoy streams daily, Twitch seemingly wants to ensure its streamers are following the guidelines of each title. This has caused a shift in population as many Call of Duty: Warzone hackers are now moving to Facebook Gaming.
Due to Facebook Gaming have a less strict streaming policy, Call of Duty: Warzone hackers are showcasing their cheats. The current community guidelines of Facebook Gaming do not include rules against players cheating on a live stream, unlike Twitch's extensive policy.
These players are not breaking the terms of service, so Call of Duty: Warzone streamers are free to cheat on Facebook apparently without penalty. This has created a safe haven for cheaters, and Facebook Gaming is even allowing them to monetize their streams and accept donations just like Twitch. As each stream pulls in hundreds of curious viewers, the cheaters are not only breaking game policy but are being paid by the community to do so.
Searching "Warzone Cheats" reveals that the streamers have been going live for months with the purpose of advertising and showcasing dedicated cheating environments. While Facebook can not ban them, many wonder why Activision is allowing it to occur despite the Activision ID being clearly visible.
It was not until Facebook Gaming streamers begin to complain that the extent of the issue was brought to light. Call of Duty: Warzone hackers posted proof to their pages that not only are the streams completely allowed, but Facebook has still monetized their accounts after months of cheating, according to Charlie Intel.
Many fans believe that Facebook's Moderation team is unaware of the damage that cheating players may have on the online community. The Call of Duty: Warzone cheater streams act as advertisements for cheats, and without penalty from either Facebook or Activision, many viewers could justify buying and using the same cheats.
It is important to note that Activision does still maintain a hard ban on Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters. Once a cheater has been reported enough, they can be removed from the game by Activision. Still, to have cheaters blatantly showcase their hacks on Facebook Gaming without penalty is a larger issue. While many believe Facebook Gaming should be banning the streams, others argue that Activision needs a more efficient anti-cheat system to prevent the problem at its source.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
