Warzone streamers may need ‘foot cams’ to debunk new cheating techniques

The latest hacking drama of the Call of Duty: Warzone world has led to a new development below the belt. People are starting to think that foot cams might be necessary to ensure that foot pedals are not used for cheats.

There is no shortage of cheating controversy in Warzone (or, since the advent of PC crossplay in Call of Duty in general). The recent scandal involving allegations against Shifty is spurring some new countermeasures.

In the shifty situation, many suspected that the pro player was cheating by toggling the silent aimbot on and off. This claim was made during a recent $100,000 tournament and then again on March 20th after a series of videos of “Jutedd” on Twitter were analyzed.

While some defense attorneys have noted Shifty’s use of a monitor camera as proof of innocence, another theory has been put forward. Someone on Twitter, “ZsAR11,” showed how easy it is to toggle cheats with a foot pedal.

ZsAR’s video was intended to “replicate” Shifty’s unique aim, showing how to subtly use a foot pedal to lock onto targets your crosshairs are close to. Seeing this in action was shocking to much of the community, who quickly realized how easy a foot pedal makes cheating.

Comparing the video with the current shifty material, it’s easy to see why many think there are similarities. It’s also easy to see why the subtle foot pedal tech is worrying and leading streamers to consider using “foot cams”.

Should Warzone Streamers Use Foot Cams?

Joking or not, JoeWo tweeted that “all Warzone streamers must come barefoot on their feet, I don’t make the rules”. It’s likely he’s fooling around, but it remains a measure some are seriously considering.

MuTeX, who just debunked his own hacking allegations alongside Joe by winning a console tournament, also discussed the “footcam” situation.

As MuTex tweeted“Thank god we see my foot pedal 24/7.” The streamer has used five different cameras in the past to prove its legitimacy, so it’s no surprise that it still has one keeping an eye on its foot pedal keeps.

It remains to be seen how many Warzone streamers will join MuTeX to show off their foot pedals. Now that the community knows how easy it is to toggle cheats with them, there’s a good chance that more “footcam” requests will come in.
