Call of Duty: Warzone has a rampant cheating problem, so much so, that stories of popular streamers and YouTube personalities quitting the game in protest have hit mainstream media outlets. Now, Activision has announced that it’s banned 60,000 cheaters from the battle royale game in a vast ban wave.
Days after popular YouTuber Vikkstar announced that he was quitting Warzone, the Call of Duty team uploaded a statement saying they have a “zero tolerance for cheaters across Call of Duty and Call of Duty: Warzone” and that 60,000 accounts were banned for using cheat software. This latest ban wave now means that more than 300,000 permabans have been issued since the game’s launch in March 2020.
“We are also continuing our efforts to identify and address cheat providers at the source, who distribute unauthorized third party software for modding or hacking,” the statement reads. The Call of Duty team also notes they will enhance their internal anti-cheat software, add more detection technology, and provide more resources dedicated to monitoring and enforcement.
Additionally, developer Raven Software will be providing the Warzone community with monthly updates on the game going forward.
