Call of Duty: Warzone has a big problem with cheaters. For weeks now, some of the biggest content creators in the business have been complaining about the lack of anti-cheat in the game and many more have been killed by hackers. But as Infinity Ward steps up its anti-cheat efforts, the company wants you to know that it’s watching every step you take.
The company, who promised it would step up its anti-cheat efforts during the last ban wave, has confirmed that over 70,000 cheaters have been banned from the game already, and that more would be issued over the next few weeks.
“We’ve now issued over 70,000 bans worldwide to protect #Warzone from cheaters,” Infinity Ward says on Twitter. “We’re continuing to deploy dedicated security updates and work continues on improving in-game reporting. We’ll share more details soon. We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters.”
Infinity Ward is planning to streamline the in-game reporting system to make it easier for players to report suspicious behaviour. Until then, we just have to hope the developer notices players that ruin the fun for everyone else.
