According to a recent video message from the creators, cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone should beware. Since its inception, Warzone has been plagued by hackers, but the creators have now begun to tackle the problem seriously.
Cheaters will find it difficult to stay unbanned in Call of Duty: Warzone, with continuing ban waves and a new anti-cheat system on the way. Hackers have turned off many gamers, and many unhappy players, including content creators, have abandoned the popular battle royale. Raven Software is now working to eliminate cheaters from the game permanently.
Despite a large ban wave in July that resulted in the suspension of over 50,000 Warzone accounts, the game continues to be plagued by cheats. Cheaters have made the battle royale rather unpleasant by exploiting flaws and utilizing compromised clients.
Raven Software has stated that it is working on a new anti-cheat system, similar to Riot’s Vanguard, that will make it more difficult for hackers to hack Call of Duty: Warzone. The anti-cheat mechanism isn’t expected to be launched until later this year, but that hasn’t prevented devs from attempting to eliminate cheats from the game.
“Banwaves are ongoing, and PC anti-cheat is arriving… later this year,” Warzone said in a video shared to the Call of Duty Twitter account. The spectacular film depicted the point of view of a recently banned Warzone cheater who claimed to be cheating on numerous accounts.
The voice informed the audience that they had been hardware banned from Call of Duty: Warzone, as well as all of their accounts, old and new. The gamer went on to say that Activision was finally doing the right thing and that content producers will return to the platform as a result. “We know what you’re doing, we’re coming for you,” the video said, threatening hackers.
Raven Software’s humorous movie is a great approach to keeping cheats at bay and showing gamers that the struggle is still ongoing. While anti-cheat software is still months away, engineers are continuing to target hackers and, if the crime is severe enough, will ban them with severe hardware restrictions. This is a huge step forward for Warzone gamers, especially considering how dissatisfied they are with the present status of the game.
However, like with past ban waves, cheats will find a method to damage the game for gamers if there isn’t a strong anti-cheat mechanism in place. Despite previous large ban waves, hackers, exploiters, and cheaters have made their way back into the battle royale. While it’s encouraging that Raven Software and Activision are working to repair the game, there’s still a long way to go until everything is addressed.
