10,000 Banned as Cheaters Continue to Infiltrate Call of Duty: Warzone

Activision is cracking down the Warzone cheating epidemic.

One of the biggest issues that Call of Duty: Warzone has been faced with lately is the sheer amount of developing cheating scandals being found across servers. There is no doubt at the amount of popularity the game has generated, especially at a time where so many people are inside more than usual. Unfortunately, that surging number of players comes with even more possible cheaters.

Breaking the rules can ruin any game. But Warzone is particularly vulnerable with its battle royale format because you might be able to play 95% of a game normally, but all it takes is a single-player to break the rules. They making their way into a 150 person lobby ready to steal a win away in the final seconds of the game. Indeed, you might not even know they were there for the rest of the time.

It really is confusing that at a time where Call of Duty: Warzone is finally doing what Activision/Blizzard had hoped for, keeping fans and critics alike pleased, that this wave of cheating happens.

Ban the Cheaters

Just when everything seemed to be going great, a new issue takes flight. Call of Duty has proudly announced they’ve banned tens of thousands of Warzone cheaters, but at the same time, fans are not happy and feel that is not enough.

The game itself is losing some traction online and with Twitch viewership since their launch, now consistently behind Valorant, League, Dota, Fortnite and CS:GO when it was leading the pack for a little while. So while there are still a lot of people playing the game itself, these things slow down the entire community, and cheating doesn’t make anyone winner at the end of the day. It only ruins the fun for the rest of us just trying their best to win a round.
