Call of Duty: Warzone’s Flying Car Hacks Have Invaded Rebirth Island

To the dismay of players, the infamous ‘Flying Vehicle Hack’ appears to have expanded to Call of Duty: Warzone’s Rebirth Island.

Call of Duty: Warzone is dealing with a new wave of sophisticated hacks, as cheaters quickly realized Activision’s Ricochet anti-hack system would not slow them down. While not necessarily the most frustrating hack, the most notable has certainly been the return of flying vehicles. Call of Duty: Warzone hackers are able to fly vehicles into the air and then use auto-aim hacks to target individuals with deadly precision. These flying vehicle hacks have only grown more widespread, with Warzone players now seeing them on Rebirth Island.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

A viral clip from Twitch streamer FaZe Scp captured a flying vehicle hack in motion this past week. Scp is playing a match on Rebirth Island and is watching a helicopter from a nearby rooftop. Then, all of a sudden, a vehicle flies into the air from out of nowhere targeting the helicopter. With precision, the vehicle charges into the helicopter, causing it to explode. As Scp is shaken by what he’s just seen, the flying vehicle then turns toward him. Scp running through a nearby doorway does nothing to slow the hacker’s attack, and he’s quickly killed.


The clip doesn’t just capture a hack in motion. It’s also a perfect example of just how audacious the hack is, and how broken Call of Duty: Warzone is to allow such a hack in the first place. The vehicle is breaking every rule of physics that should exist in Call of Duty: Warzone. It isn’t just flying, and it isn’t just near-invincible, as it also manipulates the game’s hit detection so that the area in front of the vehicle is constantly doing damage – to players, helicopters, or whatever may be there.

Given the ridiculousness of the situation and the popularity of Scp’s Twitch stream, it’s no surprise that the clip became a meme. Fans of both Call of Duty: Warzone and Scp shared the clip with various audio edits across social media. As funny as the edits are, they still don’t capture the audacity of what the clip shows in the first place.


Regarding whether this hack will be fixed in the near future, it’s anyone’s guess. It’s possible the hacker was banned almost immediately after this clip, and with anti-cheat in place, Raven Software may not consider it a priority to fix the underlying issue. That’s likely not an answer Call of Duty: Warzone players would be happy with, but this hack is undeniably lingering longer than it should.

All Call of Duty: Warzone players can do is hope Raven Software is able to move forward and make some progression on these big issues. The Raven QA team recently returned from striking and is attempting to unionize, but Raven management rejected their unionization and appears to be trying to prevent it from going forward. It’s a frustrating situation for Raven’s developers and Call of Duty: Warzone players alike.


Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
