Call of Duty Warzone hackers use night vision goggles which are not included in the game.
Hackers in Call of Duty: Warzone already have advantages like instant accuracy. The battle royale title has been plagued by various exploits, hackers and balancing problems for some time. Two clips, one posted on Twitter and the other on Reddit, show hackers pulling out night vision goggles while shooting other players through walls.
In the first clip, a hacker uses some rare tools to cheat himself to multiple kills. He has activated a cheat that automatically pings the opponents around him and tells the cheater his exact position at any time. This is actually just an added insult as they also use an auto aim bot. Towards the end of the clip, the cheater pulls out a night vision device even though the sun is shining.
Hackers keep evolving
We need to talk … @ RavenSoftware

The second clip shows more of the behavior that every Warzone player is used to at this point in time. The person being watched here actually tries to hide their aimbot and missed a couple of sniper shots. However, she aims multiple targets with the assault rifle and then shoots a player through a wall, which clearly shows that she can at least see through walls. Towards the end of the clip, our hacker puts on night vision goggles even though it is daytime.
These glasses appear to be the same as those used by players in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. That at least explains where the hackers got the glasses from, since Modern Warfare and Warzone use the same engine. However, the night vision goggles were never part of Warzone, which means the hackers somehow plucked the items out of the game files. It’s unclear if this could result in other items that are supposed to be inaccessible in Warzone finding their way into the hands of hackers.
