Cheating in Call of Duty: Warzone has been an issue for quite some time (and continues to be), and now Activision has released another anti-cheating PSA to discourage this behavior. A video was posted to the official Call of Duty Twitter account shows what it claims is a real reaction of a player who a hardware and profile ban, locking him out the game on all available platforms–for cheating.
The video demonstrates that Activision will no longer tolerate cheating in Warzone and will be emphatically ban players going forward. Just recently, the company banned another 100,000 accounts from the game.
“We know what you’re doing,” Activision said. “We’re coming for you.” An ominous warning.
In the video, the banned player can be seen showing all their accounts, across all platforms–even ones they never played on–were banned. It’s meant to show others the reality of what will happen if you cheat in the game and get caught.
“Congratulations to Activision. Biiiiig congratulations. You guys finally got your sh** together and you finally have banned accounts. So I appreciate you doing that. I’m actually happy right now. You guys took matters into your own hands and fixed it so now content creators are coming back to the game,” the banned player can be heard saying in the video.
Activision’s efforts to eliminate cheaters is a continuous fight. When the new Warzone map launches later this year, it will include a new anti-cheat system to help with this ongoing challenge. Activision hasn’t announced specifics on the system.
