Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl: Metzy found cheating

Canadian streamer and popular Call of Duty: Warzone player METZY_B and his teammates were suspended from the tournament after Call of Duty esports player Thomas "Tommey" Trewren accused Metzy of using an aimbot to gain kills. The pro streamer for 100 Thieves explained that Metzy was able to lock onto an enemy immediately after he got into his line of sight.
The stream came to a halt following the complaints, post which the event officials investigated the issue. The officials later stated that the gameplay video was unnatural beyond a reasonable doubt, suggesting that Metzy had been using some cheat software to secure kills.
