Anti-cheat Update and Report
According to the team, over 475,000 permanent bans have gone out to Call of Duty Warzone accounts with cheats. In the update, Raven noted that its security enforcement teams constantly dish out bans every day of the week. A big focus to tackle the high amount of cheaters in Call of Duty is to remove cheat providers and sellers. Thus far, 45,000 black market accounts linked to cheat merchants and sellers have been banned, easing up the play space.
Raven Software points the anti-cheat improvements in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone to four areas. One of the easier options, enabling two-factor authentication deters cheaters and sellers from quickly creating new accounts. Constantly supporting security teams and improving more communication with the CoD community is important. Finally, banwaves go out more and more often in addition to the daily bannings.
Call of Duty and Warzone Cheaters
Though there is still much more work to do, this shows valuable progress. In fact, Raven Software banned 60,000 cheaters in a recent ban wave. On top of that, the company banned 45,000 cheating players over the last week.
