A possible new hack in Call of Duty: Warzone appears to be letting cheaters end matches instantly.
Matches of Warzone usually end when only one squad of players is left alive, triggering a ‘Warzone Victory’ title card and a cinematic of the victorious squad evacuating Verdansk in a helicopter.
Interestingly, when this match ends, a ‘Final Kill’ replay shows the last seconds of his teammates perspective. The ‘Final Kill’ end screen is usually reserved for multiplayer matches and never appears in the Warzone game mode normally.
It’s possible that this alternate premature ending could be the result of a bug.
However, the player that BisaG10 downed right before the match ended had a username containing a racial slur. Activision usually doesn’t allow offensive language to be used in usernames which indicates that this player knows their way around Activision’s rulebooks.
It is possible that the player BisaG10 knocked down was the one to initiate the hack out of frustration.
So far, only one other case of this happening has surfaced. A reply to BisaG10’s original clip on Twitter shows a similar thing happening where the match ends while over 60 players are still left alive. In both cases, the end of the round screen tells the players that they placed 1st.

Cheaters and hackers have been a prominent issue for Warzone since it launched almost a year ago. A wave of bans last month wiped out over 60,000 cheaters from Warzone in one go, though it appears that several are still slipping through the cracks.
Activision is yet to comment on whether this bizarre ending is the result of a bug or a new hack.
