Activision is trying to squash cheaters from Call of Duty: Warzone. Raven Software recently announced that it brought down the ban hammer on more than 50,000 accounts over the last week in Warzone.
In the latest tweet from the developer, Raven stated the latest ban wave was “Targeting repeat offenders, and much more.” They also noted that it had “been a while” since the last anti-cheat update, which is true.
Before this update, the last know ban wave was back in May, when the total number of accounts banned reached 500,000.
Of course, cheating in a game the size and scale of Warzone will persistently be an issue. Activision has said it’s working to better mitigate the problem, but it just never seems to be enough. Some solutions include issuing daily bans and even pushing out hardware bans for serial offenders.
Call of Duty: Warzone just went through several big changes with the Season 4 Reloaded update, including an increased time-to-kill. This update also brought a few glitches, like players being able to go invisible again and spectators in the gulag being able to parachute down.
