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.
