Legendary YouTube streamer Tim "TimTheTatman" Betar recently discovered a hacked Warzone Pacific lobby that unlocked max level guns after landing only one kill in Caldera with his Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle. The YouTube star was streaming with fellow streamers Zack "ZLaner" Lane and Guy "Dr Disrespect" Beahm at the time, leaving the trio stunned by what they had experienced.

TimTheTatman finds hacked Warzone lobby with fully unlocked weapons

On 21st December, Modern Warzone noted on Twitter that the hacked lobby discovered by TimTheTatman was not an isolated incident, with several other accounts of hacked lobbies beginning to crop up in Warzone Pacific.

TimTheTatman posted a video on Twitter, saying, "I think we have a problem," before tagging the Call of Duty official Twitter account. In the video, TimTheTatman proceeds to show how his gun went up to level 70 after landing one kill.

"It just said my gun went up to level 70 with one kill. Homie, my gun is level 70. I just shot one guy, and my gun went from level 8 to level 70; I swear to god [...] I have everything unlocked with one kill," the YouTube megastar said.

ZLaner was convinced that someone might have hacked the entire lobby, although some players speculate that the trio might have encountered a bug in their match. This is not entirely unlikely either, given the slew of game-breaking issues being reported by Warzone Pacific players recently.

Interestingly, the lobbies also don't have timers, which further fuels suspicion that the hacked lobbies result from an exploit, not an in-game glitch, as some players have speculated. There also seems to be a higher chance of finding hacked lobbies in Plunder.

Raven Software has not addressed the issue at the time of writing. However, we will endeavour to provide further updates regarding this developing issue.
