Why SideLogic's Warzone Gameplay Is Under Intense Scrutiny

The "Call of Duty" franchise is no stranger to players cheating in order to gain an unfair advantage over their opponents. Several problems have plagued games such as "Call of Duty: Vanguard," which was practically ruined by cheaters when it was still in its beta test. These issues have spread to other "Call of Duty" titles as well, including "Call of Duty: Warzone." The issue has become so prevalent that even more experienced players are getting caught up in the controversy.

SideLogic — a "Warzone" player who has risen to prominence through streaming and posting trick shots on TikTok — is the latest big-name player to be accused of cheating. In a lengthy Twitter thread, Vexilray — a content creator and SideLogic's ex-girlfriend — detailed several methods SideLogic allegedly used to artificially boost his stats and deceive his viewers. These included many gaming no-no's, like killing AFK enemies to boost his kill-death ratio (KD) while off-stream, personally blocking more talented players, and even fully fabricating trick shots to post online. SideLogic was also accused of using multiple accounts. 

The entire situation has gotten pretty messy and now, fans are combing through the popular "Warzone" player's content to spot such examples. Meanwhile, an entirely different scandal is brewing regarding a copyright claim from SideLogic.

SideLogic's alleged misdeeds

In the aftermath of Vexilray's allegations against SideLogic, YouTuber Rara posted a video in which he interviewed VexilRay. The video covered multiple points against SideLogic's content, including his alleged use of multiple accounts, but it was quickly taken down following a copyright claim from SideLogic himself. In response, Rara has threatened legal action against SideLogic, accusing the content creator of covering his tracks with a false claim.

SideLogic was quick to downplay the drama. "Just because someone used to be in my life, it doesn't mean whatever they claim is true," SideLogic said in a statement made to Twitter. "There isn't any evidence of me ever using cheats in all of these accusations that are being thrown at me. There's always two sides to a story and I will speak my side soon." As of the writing of this article, SideLogic has disabled replies to this tweet.
