Despite Call of Duty’s popularity and reputation, the franchise has experienced considerable cheating issues in recent years in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. And among all these cheats, some players have asked questions about the famous Cronus Zens and how they work.
Warzone, despite its success, popularity and recognition, has had major cheating issues since its first day. And when Warzone 2 launched, players reported a significant increase in cheaters completely ruining their gaming experience.
While some of the more flashy (and obvious) cheats, like aimbot or wallhack, are widely known, devices like Cronus Zen can go unnoticed while still being just as unfair.
But then what is a Cronus Zen and how does it work in Call of Duty and Warzone?
How does a Cronus Zen work in Call of Duty?
Cronus Zen allows players to freely cheat in Warzone.
The Cronus Zen is a device used by some Call of Duty and Warzone players to cheat using custom scripts and macros. It’s basically a USB adapter that allows you to connect a game controller to a console or PC. Players can then program scripts that automate certain actions, such as weapon recoil, burst fire, or auto-reload.
Cronus Zen is often used to bypass restrictions imposed by video game developers, such as response time or shooting limitations. Cronus Zen users can also configure macros that allow them to shoot faster or more accurately than other players. This can give an unfair advantage to users of this device and make the game less fair for other players.
The video below, directed by John Glasscock, shows Cronus Zen in action, explaining how easy it is to use and how it can be considered in-game cheating. Be careful, this video may annoy you.
It should be noted that using cheat devices such as Cronus Zen is considered a violation of the rules of the game and may result in sanctions such as suspension or ban from playing online.
Call of Duty developers have notably taken recent steps to detect and prohibit the use of these devices in their games.
