You can annoy your friends. Don't actually do that. Just posting it for CA to see it.
It's time to fix this bug.

    Here's an idea; have a tiny amount of self control and don't use it. It's that simple.

    I don't know why this minor bug has so much attention.

    This is it.

    Tbh I don’t even thing it takes much self control to not use it. For example I wouldn’t say people who don’t use cheat mods exude self discipline, not cheating in a game you play on your own is the default

    Well why should anyone use it to completely destroy a campaign?

    If you play a Multiplayer campaign just make a rule to not use that exploit and if the other players uses it just end the campaign. It’s easy as that.

    If people want to use it in their SP campaigns, let them. It doesn’t affect your own game experience since it is not a competitive game.

    I personally couldn’t care less about that bug. Never even tried if it works and never will. I play the game for fun so why should I destroy that fun with cheating?

    CA should focus on gamebreaking bugs.

    This is ridiculous. It works in multiplayer and we're still saying it's nothing?

    It's a bug.

    Fix it.

    As to why someone would use it to completely destroy a campaign? Easy, cause they're losing, for a laugh, and because it's available and recently quite well known.

    Game breaking bugs should be fixed, no one is contesting that, but so does this.

    Just end the campaign if your opponent is cheating. It’s easy as that. Both of you play the game for fun and if one is cheating, just quit. It’s easy as that.

    It shouldn't be possible to cheat base game. Your argument is ridiculous, it shouldn't be an option in the first place.

    or yes, I imagine Activision saying: well, obviously Warzone players might cheat, but I'm sure nobody will. They will use their self control. after all, they are here to have fun.

    It’s not even a bug, it reeks of Dev tool. Keyword Dev, us players shouldn’t be able to use it.

    H2H MP campaigns always require house rules. If your partner is that weak just don't play with them.

    I'll at least take you're saying it should be fixed. My main issue is the amount of people who seem to be saying to pay no mind to this.

    Tbh I don’t even thing it takes much self control to not use it. For example I wouldn’t say people who don’t use cheat mods exude self discipline, not cheating in a game you play on your own is the default
    Downloading and using a cheat mod is easier than this. It's literally at that level.

    I'm seriously puzzled as to how this non issue has so much attention lately. It's easy; just don't ruin your or your friends campaigns on purpose.

    But of course you won't know if they don't do it to armies you can't see, eg. giving themselves a much easier early game to get ahead.

    The option to do so shouldn't exist in a base unmodded game. Come on, I get you don't hold it to any importance but surely you agree a game with competitive multiplayer settings shouldn't have built in cheats?

    Then they're d*cks for cheating and probably shouldn't be playing games with you if you care about some integrity.

    Just trust your friends or don't play with them.

    Yes sure but there are more important things that have a higher priority for obvious reasons.

    The fact that this bug exists for 3 years and the majority didn’t even realise it shows how unimportant that bug is compared to things that are really game breaking.

    It’s really a non issue and doesn’t effect your game experience at all.

    3 years and nobody even realised that bug...
