Call of Duty: Warzone has seen several phases of bugs, cheaters, and exploits throughout its year of existence. For many fans, it seems that every patch that resolves a problem only seems to spark another one. Call of Duty: Warzone fans have stated their frustration at this cycle, but a new hack seems to have outdone previous exploits.
A new exploit is circulating that is allowing players to end a Call of Duty: Warzone round prematurely. Several clips have caught the results of the exploit, but so far, there are no solutions as to how players can avoid being affected. Call of Duty: Warzone may be looking at a new wave of cheaters who can bring down a server whenever they lose.
The main clip showcasing this problem comes from a Twitch user called BisaG10. This streamer was in a quads match with 6 teams and 19 players left. After switching to a kill cam, the game suddenly ends without any warning. To make this situation even stranger, a “1st Place” screen appears, apparently awarding everyone in the server a victory despite the game still having several players left. As far as Call of Duty: Warzone glitches go, this one is exceptionally frustrating as it could end a match at any time.
Hackers can now end a game of #Warzone by themselves… 🤯
They’re evolving… 😭

In the comments, players have shared their own experiences with this bug. While it does not seem to always be triggered by the kill cam, one fan believes that it has more to do with the network itself. There are several Call of Duty: Warzone rumors as to how this bug can be applied, and many fans are looking towards Exfiltration for the answer.
While Exfiltration offered a unique opportunity, players quickly discovered a bug in the game’s code. Players were able to trigger a match to end early by holding down the radio for a long time. While this bug disappeared with Exfiltration, some fans believe that it could be lingering code causing a similar problem for the Call of Duty: Warzone community.
No one is particularly sure exactly how this bug is being triggered, but many fans are blaming hackers for the entire mess. Until this Call of Duty: Warzone bug is solved, players are advised to turn off cross-play to lessen the chance of encountering a cheater. Ending a game early can be exceptionally frustrating, especially for those players who may have been having a good match thus far.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
