Call of Duty: War­zone has a seri­ous prob­lem with cheaters, as well as fraud and abuse. How­ev­er, Activi­sion is try­ing to stay vig­i­lant in enforc­ing pun­ish­ment to those who break the rule. In the com­pa­ny’s lat­est announce­ment, they banned an addi­tion­al 30,000 accounts, bring­ing the total up to 500,000.

Hacked accounts using exploits like aim bots and oth­er enhance­ments to aim, have been extreme through­out War­zone in recent weeks. This has result­ed in Activi­sion esca­lat­ing its effort to rid the game of these cheaters.

Just a few days ago, sev­er­al high-pro­file War­zone play­ers and influ­encers were worked to draw addi­tion­al atten­tion to the cheat­ing, going as far as to address the dev team direct­ly. This result­ed in sev­er­al hack­ers get­ting banned live on stream.

Cheat­ing has always been an issue with mul­ti­play­er, online titles, but it seems to have always been present in War­zone. Activi­sion has stat­ed they are work­ing on mit­i­gat­ing the prob­lem. Some solu­tions include issu­ing dai­ly bans and even rolling out hard­ware bans for ser­i­al offenders.
