Call of Duty Warzone bans over half a million (500K) users for cheating in the game since the game launch, says the COD warzone’s co-developer Raven Software. Developer Raven Software disclosed this estimate after the new outbreak of bans has completely prohibited 30,000 cheaters due to hacking.
Raven didn’t explain if it was on a single platform or shared all over them, or what basically the hackers were doing to warrant the prohibition hammer. However, it looks like at least that the production company takes cheating seriously and keeps scammers accountable.
Recently, Raven has teased on Twitter that after banning over 30,000 “malicious accounts” their overall number of bans goes to 500K – “over half a million accounts”
However, the answers are filled with players saying their bans were unreasonable because their accounts were hacked by hackers.
Call of Duty Warzone bans 500K users
Call of Duty Warzone has been launched in the year 2020. Since then, they have been updating the anti-cheat software and measures continuously, the cheaters and their producers are getting difficult to identify. COD Warzone have severe cheater problems that all COD players are aware of. Since its release, the COD warzone has banned vast numbers of cheaters across different ban waves and is still keeps on going with the same intentions.
In October 2020, Activision imposed bans over more than 200,000 cheaters after an anti-cheat update detecting notorious ‘engineowing’ cheats and approached 300,000 by February 2021.
Over 200,000 accounts have now got banned in the game in a very less span of three months. The overall number of prohibited accounts is thus over 500,000 (on every platform). Raven previously announced this year that they will always keep Warzone ‘clean’ and hacker free.
Raven intends to deal with the cheating problem by imposing bans seven days a week, combating the market for cheat providers and stop cheaters from changing into alternative accounts.
