Suspected cheaters in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be matched together in Warzone following a new anti-cheat update. Infinity Ward has introduced several new measures in the latest update that should, in theory, reduce the number of cheaters you play against.
In addition to pairing suspected cheaters up with each other, players will now receive confirmation when one of their reports is converted into a ban. The security of the game has also been improved and Infinity Ward has increased its resources across backend tech to support this.
The more intuitive UI and report-a-player functionality that the studio promised us still isn’t here yet, but will be “soon” according to its latest tweet. This functionality will also allow us to report suspected cheaters through killcams and spectator modes – just in case you weren’t sure the first time around.
We know that Infinity Ward has so far banned 70,000 accounts from Warzone, so it’s clear that it is taking the problem seriously.

And while pairing suspected cheaters up in lobbies together is amusing, the reporting functionality needs to be added quickly if the developer really wants to get to the heart of the problem. Hopefully we’ll see that in the next update.
