Update: Tommey has recanted his accusations and apologised to METZY after the 100 Thieves star got remote access to the accused's PC and found no evidence.

Tommey hopes to make things right by covering lost earnings and buying METZY a new PC.

Original story:

Cheating is rampant in Call of Duty: Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale, and that's probably true of major competitions, with the Twitch Rivals: Doritos Bowl event organizers moving to disqualify streamer METZY_B after suspect clips emerged that showed he may have been using an aimbot.

"During the Twitch Rivals: Doritos Bowl ft. Call of Duty Warzone Final, Metzy_B was ruled to be cheating," stated Twitch Rivals via Twitter.

"As a result his team was removed from the event."

According to clips floating around social media and YouTube, it seems Metzy was using some kind of aimbot, with this clip below being the most incriminating evidence.

The tournament, a trios event, boasted a hefty prize pool of $250,000, which makes these accusations and decisions that much more important, as allowing a cheater to run rampant would be extremely damaging. On the other hand, if Metzy does end up proving his innocence, it could hurt the content creator in the long run. 

Streamer Liteshott shared clips on Twitter from a previous encounter with Metzy, alleging that he "had caught Metzy first a few weeks ago."

After being disqualifed from the tournament Metzy went quiet for over an hour before then attempting to show evidence of why he hasn't cheated.

His main tactic appears to be playing dumb as his teammates and chat ask him to do things like opening his browser history, which Metzy seems to not know how to do.

This recent drama has prompted Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff to comment on the current situation of competitive Warzone, and how cheating has ruined any potential desire to help the community grow.

"Unfortunately without anti-cheat, authentic Warzone tournaments just aren’t possible anymore. We learned a lot from those Gauntlets & I’ve been tellin’ y’all.. There’s too much cheese & way too many rats. Bob & weave baby," he tweeted out.

If Metzy is guilty or not will be hard to determine, as no proper anti-cheat system exists in Call of Duty titles, even though players big and small have been calling for Activision to do more.

It may be that Metzy is a victim of the times, another player Pacesetter was outed by 100 Thieves' Thomas "Tommey" Trewren as a cheater earlier this week as both were competing in the Mainland Gaming Warzone Invitational.

With no concrete evidence bar a couple of suspect videos it will be hard to know for sure if Metzy has cheated.
