The bans

Yesterday both the Raven Software and the official Call of Duty Twitter accounts announced that they had banned over 100,000 Call of Duty: Warzone accounts. According to the tweet from the developers, this recent wave of bans targeted “repeat offenders and cheat providers”.

Back in May of this year, they banned over 500,000 Call of Duty accounts across a number of different games in the franchise and only a couple of weeks ago they banned another 50,000. Cheating in Warzone on the PC is currently a huge issue and most of these bans do nothing to deal with the actual problem. They are a temporary stop gap that shuts down a single cheater for roughly the same amount of time it would take for them to sign up for a new account.

New anti-cheat measures

With the announcement of Call of Duty: Vanguard and all of the new content that it will be bringing to Warzone, we also got some interesting news about a potential for a completely new anti-cheat system:

“Warzone is set to make Call of Duty history with a brand-new main map launching later this year! With development led by Raven Software, Warzone will also feature a new PC anti-cheat system across the entire experience when it launches with the new map.

“Full integration between Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone will roll out when the new Warzone map launches later this year.

“With Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone sharing free post-launch content, a massive calendar of new maps, modes, playlists, limited time and seasonal events, as well as community celebrations integrated between the two games, expect the most connected Call of Duty experience ever seen.”

Activision have not elaborated on what the new anti-cheat software will look like, but I hope that it is effective in squashing the ongoing issue with cheaters on the game. I know that I have been less and less interested in the game after encountering so many cheaters that it ruined my experience.

The future of anti-cheat software

We have some circumstantial evidence that Activision are kicking their anti-cheat measures up a notch. Tik Tok user rushman360 went viral recently after he took to the site to show off exactly how people cheat on Call of Duty. After that post went up, he sent out another Tik Tok stating that he had been hardware banned. That means that it was not just his account that was banned but his entire console.

"Every one of my accounts are banned. Every single one, without even me playing it. Playing the new accounts, they're banned, so they hardware banned my shit.

“I want to say a big congratulations to Activision, you guys have finally got your shit together. And you have finally banned accounts, I appreciate you doing that.”

Some have claimed that it was issues with his own cheating software that resulted in the ban but the fact that they are targeting cheaters in a deeper and more meaningful way is fantastic to see.
