Battlefield there is always a cheating problem, which seems Persevere to overcome crater And 2.0 despite active anti-fraud implementation from Activision. However, resilient cheating combined with status dissatisfaction Battlefield 2.0is leading some to suspect that hackers are being paid to kick top streamers out of crater. It’s an unlikely theory, but it still speaks to many people’s frustrations with the present Battlefield offer for sale.

In a March 29 tweet, content creator ModernWarzone allegations that “a company is paying cheaters to get ‘bounties’ for celebrities Battlefield streamers like @its_iron.” Reason? ModernWarzone suggests: “This particular company does it because they don’t want people Battlefield [Caldera] no more.” That’s a pretty lofty claim, and it’s all based on it_iron streamer’s repeated instances of being sniped (a form of fraud in which users watch a live stream). of enemy players to know where they are to jump on them) by a user with an Active Name Bellgaming13.

But while there seems to be proof that the aforementioned account has managed to get into the same lobby as the snipe target in question, as well as examples of a lingering cheating problem in Caldera, the evidence of some kind of widespread conspiracy simply doesn’t add up. What isn’t as easy to dismiss, however, is that opinions over Warzone 2.0 have definitely soured, leading to dissatisfaction and lower player counts overall.

Claims of paid hackers are paper-thin at best

The tweet speculating that a company is paying hackers contains a video featuring popular CoD streamer its_iron (who doesn’t want to talk to Kotaku on profile) see an interview between CoD broadcast Comrade Grisha and the “hacker” in question: Bellgaming13. In the video, Bellgaming13 says:

Basically, I signed an NDA, if that makes sense? So I can’t really reveal who it is […] it is not a specific person. That is…I can’t really say that much but basically […] all i can say is they basically don’t want you in this game anymore. It looks like. That’s basically all I can say.

You can find that video on its_iron’s Twitch channel, titled “Activision hires cheaters to [Stream Snipe] Caldera Player” and taken from another video by Comrade Grisha, titled “Calderagate!!! ‘Is someone paying hackers to get people out of Caldera???? You decide!!!!” The Twitch channel also has a number of Bellgaming13 videos that repeatedly appear during it_iron’s games, apparently killing him by stream sniping.

Talk to Kotaku, Comrade Grisha says that he has encountered snipers on this thread many times with his group of regular teammates. It was suspicious enough behavior for him and his team to contact Bellgaming13. That led to the interview in which Bellgaming13 stated that they “signed the NDA” and were acting on behalf of someone who wanted to evict streamers. Battlefield. No proof of NDA, or anything else, was provided.

It seems highly unlikely that an NDA to protect the identities of those hackers or streamers, both of which can be said violation of terms of service any Battlefield players will have to agree to play from the start, will have enough patience to silence someone. break out Johnathan Frakes denied memes for this one, folks.

Kotaku Contacted Activision for comment.

Repeat hacks and gameplay changes speak for themselves Battlefield 2.0 painful

While it is highly unlikely that there is a coordinated campaign, in this case specifically, paying hackers to deliberately target streamers through stream sniping in order to somehow chase they’re out of the game, but obviously Battlefield 2.0number of players of yes start to fall. Under 90,000 active Steam players recently, CoD are lagging behind other popular shooters like top legend, PUBGand even destiny 2.

The drop in the number of returning players could be due to a few factors marked by a wider range CoD community. Many dramatic destinations change in kill time (TTK) rate is the most immediate one. Others see BR competitors like fortress as capable of providing a brighter and more exciting future with Recently released Unreal Editor. There is also the fact that Battlefield first has matured considerably with a variety of skins and cosmetics, all of which have not transferred Battlefield 2.0.

Live service games have always had a natural ups and downs in popularity. But what is clear is Battlefield are starting to tire out the dedicated fan base, some of whom are reverting to previous versions of the game, while others are searching for answers and clinging to conspiracy theories as don’t have them.
