Activision has banned more than 100,000 accounts from Call of Duty: Warzone. The company targeted gamers who have committed multiple violations to use cheats and cheat providers.
It is not the first time that Activision has banned accounts from Call of Duty: Warzone in large numbers. In April, the company wrote that it had already removed a total of 475,000 accounts for individual errors or repeated violations. It then involved players who cheated through cheats or fraudulent accounts of cheaters sold on the black market. A month ago, the game publisher also deleted more than 50,000 accounts for the same reason.
To tackle cheating software, Activision uses proprietary anti-cheat software rather than better-known anti-cheat tools such as Easy Anti-Cheat or BattleEye. Weekly, the developer also makes security updates that should improve the in-game reporting mechanisms. In addition, unauthorized software providers will be disabled and two-factor authentication will be enabled for new PC players who play the battle royale component of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for free. The company has been putting players suspected of cheating in a separate lobby since 2020.
Last week announced Activision created a new map for Warzone. The company also announced that new anti-cheat software is in the works for the PC. When the map, and the accompanying new anti-cheat software will be released, is not yet known.
