In a bout of unforeseen irony, notable Call of Duty: Warzone streamer – MrGolds – has been banned from Twitch after accidentally revealing an active cheating engine while livestreaming to his audience of a little over 1,800 viewers. To hammer in the irony, he was in the process of bragging about his skills and asking if his audience has seen anyone play like him.
“The first time you see someone good at the game – now I’m talking with you guys because you really – I play, and I look at the chat, and it’s like, what’s going on? You know what I’m saying? What’s going on, guys? Have you ever seen anyone play like me?”

The streamer didn’t catch on for a while that beneath Task Manager, EngineOwning – which offers “high-quality cheats” for games including Call of Duty: Warzone – was clearly visible. After he finished his tangent about being great at Warzone, he later took to Instagram to plead innocence.

It’s difficult to decipher what he’s trying to convey other than he wasn’t hacking that day despite the clear evidence that was more than enough for Twitch, which caught wind of his cheating and brought the ban-hammer down on him for cheating in an online game, which is against its TOS. “Any activity, such as cheating, hacking, botting, or tampering, that gives the account owner an unfair advantage in an online multiplayer game, is prohibited. This also includes exploiting another broadcaster’s live broadcast in order to harass them in-game, such as stream sniping.”
His channel is still currently banned and he’s ghosted social media, most likely waiting for this to blow over. MrGolds is far from an isolated incident, sadly. Cheating has remained a part of Call of Duty: Warzone’s character. From its mid-March launch to April, they had put the ban-hammer on 70K hackers. As punishment, they also pinned hackers against hackers in their own dedicated server. Even so, it’s still not stamped out the problem all that well.
