50,000 Call Of Duty: Warzone players have been banned permanently by Infinity Ward for cheating.
The game is free-to-play in a battle royale game mode to all gamers, and even though it has been out for a month now, Infinity Ward should be questioned.
Not just on uncovering those cheaters, but on how many they have found in the first place.
Being banned on a free-to-play game isn’t as bad as first thought unless Call Of Duty did the same as the original game and charge near about £50.
Still, cheaters will never come out on top, and if you’re winning Warzone with less-than-legitimate methods, you best stop or Infinity Ward will do it for you.
Hearing this news shows that Infinity Ward and Activision are dedicated to squashing out Warzone cheaters.
Also, in a new post over on the official Activision Games Blog, the company detailed some of the anti-cheating measures that they have drawn up to ensure that Verdansk remains a stable and wholesome place.
“We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities,” the company wrote.
“This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn’t always something we discuss publicly.”
The publisher added that Warzone has diligent security teams that work around the clock surveying game data and assessing any potential issues or anomalies.
Security teams welcome the prospect of working with the Warzone community, and will always review cheat reports in their fight against cheaters. In addition, Activision reiterated that reporting another player for cheating can now be efficient and easy to do.
Furthermore, not all hackers can be spotted because they have the edge on you, they are just far better than you.
