Call of Duty: Warzone - Devs crack down on cheaters

Call of Duty

Since the release of Call of Duty: Warzone in March 2020, Activision has diligently tracked down cheaters in their battle royale. An initiative that is confirmed week after week, with waves of weekly banns.

Last February, Activision Blizzard declared that it was not giving cheaters any respite in their Call of Duty and Call of Duty: Warzone games, mentioning in particular the permanent suspension of 60,000 accounts for using cheating software. A desire that can still be observed in March: after the wave of 30,000 banns last week, Raven Software has just announced on its Twitter account the suspension of 13,000 new accounts. And they're not going to stop there.

- Raven Software (@RavenSoftware) March 23, 2021 In a press release published at the beginning of February, Blizzard Activision returned to the different methods used to stop the cheats within its games. He mentions for example the integration of a two-factor authentication, weekly updates, the improvement of their anti-cheat software as well as the detection of third-party software allowing to shoot through walls (wallhack) or to automatically target players, regardless of their presence in their field of vision (aimbot). Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play battle royale available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series. It shares its content with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold, the last installment of the license to also be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.

New Call of Duty: Warzone Anti-Cheat Update Bans Even More Players

Developer Raven Software has announced a new wave of bans in its ongoing war with Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters. According to the company, this latest round includes the banning of over 13,000 accounts. This round of bans is just the latest in an ongoing initiative to be more transparent about its anti-cheat efforts with thousands upon thousands of bans having come down since the company announced it would be more communicative about them in early February.

If you add up all of the numbers that the developer has released thus far, it would appear that around 400,000 Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters have been banned since it first launched around this time last year. And given that Call of Duty: Warzone looks to be supported for the long haul, there is every indication that the number of banned accounts will only grow and grow. For now, it remains to be seen long-term what the effect of the bans might be, but one less cheater is one less cheater, right?

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2 is currently ongoing. Both titles are currently available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, but Warzone is notably free to play.
