Alex Zedra, the actress behind Mara — Warcom operator character in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone — is a Twitch streamer herself. On March 12, after she finished her own stream , she proceeded to host another member of the community, IcyVixen, a known Call of Duty: Warzone streamer. It didn’t take long until “Mara” realized that IcyVixen was clearly hacking during a Warzone tournament.

During the stream in question, IcyVixen showed signs of suspicious accuracy when she was caught aiming at a hill, ready to pull an “impressive” shot towards the location of the enemy. We first see her gun beginning to move towards something, seemingly telegraphing the enemy’s location on the other side of the hill. Moments after her sneak peek behind the hill, she fired a spectacular shot at him. These incriminating clips clearly showed signs of hacking, leading Alex Zedra “Mara” to take the situation over to Twitter.

Alex was quick to report the situation to Twitch exposing both IcyVixen and her boyfriend, BeardedBanger, for hacking. At first, BeardedBanger rushed to defend his girlfriend against Alex’s allegations, but his involvement quickly backfired on him, as his streams immediately got under inspection. A clip of him trying to flaunt his 5.87 KD/R, was more than enough to receive a ban as well.

Both IcyVixen and BeardedBanger play on PC, which is very easy to hack, but due to the cross-play ability, Warzone cheaters can gain an unfair advantage and affect console players as well.
