Call of Duty: Warzone blocks 30,000 cheaters in the latest ban wave
Raven Software and Activision have taken a tough stand against the Call of Duty: Warzone hackers by making numerous updates along with massive waves of bans. As players debate the feasibility of these strategies, it appears that developers are making slow progress in curbing the hacker problem.
So far, Call of Duty: Warzone has banned thousands of hackers from its game. Every Blocked Account reassures the game community that actions are being taken to curb cheating within the game. As Call of Duty: Warzone grows more secure, players await further updates from specialist developers.
Raven Software announced on Twitter that another ban wave has been implemented inside Call of Duty: Warzone alongside an anti-cheat update. Activision later confirmed to PC Gamer that the ban had resulted in the removal of more than 30,000 player accounts from the game. This is the latest in many waves of ban cycling through the game since the start of the year. Although the community may not feel the direct impact yet, it is only a matter of time before the developer comes out ahead of all the cheaters within the game.
The estimated ban for this year so far has reached nearly 100,000 accounts, which is a large number of confirmed hackers removed from the game. Despite this, Call of Duty: Warzone has millions of players, which severely reduces the impact of blocked accounts. With the majority of hackers on the computer, the problem for many revolves around the capabilities of the crossover game.
Despite the ban, many Call of Duty: Warzone fans consider it common to fall for cheaters. With the game’s use of a skill-based matchmaking system, the number of hackers who show is directly related to the skill of the player. Accounts with higher degrees of K / d are more likely to fall victim to the hacker than those with lower levels. While this skews the odds, intruders can still appear at all skill levels within the game.
One of the main concerns in the community is the lack of detection software. Call of Duty: Warzone hackers can rotate accounts and bypass the ban, and this is only possible as long as the game does not detect background software. Despite the efforts of Call of Duty: Warzone, several cheat sites are announcing that their software has not been detected by Activision’s anti-cheat software.
