Warzone streamer shadow banned after using “exploit” to reach level 1000

Warzone streamer Tasty has been shadowed by Raven Software after reaching level 1,000 just two days into Season 5.

On August 24, Warzone started its fifth and possibly final season before the release of Modern Warfare 2. And Warzone content creator TastyFPS quickly released a video showing how he managed to reach level 1000 in just two days.

A video released on August 27 shows how Tasty was able to create a loop on Fortune’s Keep that allowed him to open chests continuously for almost the entire match. And thanks to an XP buff, each chest gives the player 400 XP.

He also stated that the guaranteed fire sale after the first circle allowed him to earn even more XP per match, as he would earn thousands of dollars opening chests. But Raven Software wasn’t so kind to the inadvertent XP farm they’d created.

Nice shade banned for too much XP

On September 2 – six days after Tasty’s video went live – he posted on Twitter showing that Raven Software Shadow was banning his account.

He stated that he realized something had happened before Raven sent the report when he encountered lobbies full of cheaters.

This sparked a debate among Warzone players, as many began calling Tasty’s XP farm an exploit. Others claimed he hadn’t exploited anything, but rather misused an improved XP system.

While this probably wasn’t Raven Software’s intent when they made chest XP higher than usual, many players didn’t consider Tasty opening a larger number of chests as an exploit.

On August 3, Tasty decided to use his alt account called “im not cheatin” because he wouldn’t be able to play on his main until the review was over.

However, Raven reportedly shadow-forbidden his alt in less than an hour after he posted it on Twitter.

Anyway, Tasty didn’t pretend this was a big deal as he said multiple times on Twitter that he had been banned in the shadows in the past. He stated that the ban was probably caused by a large number of players reporting his account after seeing how high his level was in such a short time.
