The arrival of Warzone 2 Season 2 brought a ton of long-awaited elements to the battle royale, such as the oft-requested leaderboard feature. Instead of stat tracking, however, players have now found a completely different use for this latest introduction.

According to a post on Reddit, one observant user noted that they “can clearly see how rampant some cheaters have been” by simply looking at the BR leaderboard. The post creator then goes on to attach an image of the top players in the popular game mode based on Critical Damage dealt and the stats they’ve accumulated are indeed something to behold.

For instance, those currently ranked in the top two have unbelievable headshot percentages and headshots per game. Both of them have nearly 65% or more in the former category while they average 16+ during each match in the latter. Consistently getting these stats within the unpredictability of Warzone 2 lobbies is an incredible and unsustainable feat, which makes the hacking accusations even more credible.

Because of the prevalent cheating found within battle royale matches, casual players have now decided to poke fun at the Ricochet Anti-Cheat system, which is supposed to prevent this sort of thing from happening. One commenter even went so far as to say that Activision loves hackers because they won’t do anything to fix the problem. Another user alleged that this issue won’t be resolved because “they want to pretend Ricochet works.”

Unfortunately, Activision and Infinity Ward are still yet to actually provide a definitive service that will get rid of this annoying issue, which means innocent players will continue to suffer for the foreseeable future.
