User Vision Pro was an aim assist and auto fire cheat that recently gained attention thanks to YouTube demos showing what it could achieve in Call of Duty: Warzone. These videos have now been taken offline, but you can see what was shown thanks to Twitter’s Anti-Cheat Police Department. The video claimed that User Vision Pro would work on “any game” and consoles as well as PC, would be “undetectable” and “unstoppable” and also “extremely [sic] quickly”.
Ars Technica explained how it works. Basically, software running on a second computer the game is streamed on to analyze what it sees, identifies enemies, and then through third-party hardware like the Cronus Zen, which was at the center of a recent Warzone cheating accusation involving a world record holder – takes the lead to make sure a cheating player gets the hang of it.
The fact that the script was running on a separate computer and not modifying any game files supposedly made it undetectable, although of course a player suddenly switching from no-hoper to no-scoper would still be noticeable. Whether User Vision Pro can truly deliver on its promises is academic, as its website has now been shut down. All that’s left is a statement from the creator of the cheat, User101.
This declaration was not required.
However, at the request of Activision Publishing, Inc. (“Activision”), I will no longer develop or provide access to any software that may be used to operate their games. My intention was never to do anything illegal. At the end of the video that brought so much attention to this project, he said “coming soon”. The software was never released.
This type of technology has other real assistive benefits, for example, by pointing a webcam at yourself, you can control movements without using limbs. Unfortunately, due to its potential negative impact, I will not develop it further.
User101 told Waypoint that he was motivated to create User Vision Pro because of the number of cheats already available. “Every time I get killed I wonder whether or not this was a professional gamer with excellent situational awareness and pinpoint accuracy or just a hack,” a- he declared. Which seems to explain why you’d want there to be fewer hacks, rather than more, but what the hell.
