With Call of Duty: Warzone being a free-to-play game that offers crossplay on platforms that include PC, the inevitable cheating issue is bound to happen, Infinity Ward anticipated it. According to the studio they have permabanned more than 50,000 Call of Duty Warzone cheaters.
Infinity Ward says they have “zero tolerance” for cheating, and since day one of Warzone, they’ve been actively going through data with their security teams to ensure Warzone is free of hackers and whatnot. Here are some of the counter-measures the studio is doing round the clock to combat Call of Duty Warzone cheaters.
Our security teams monitor 24/7 to investigate data and identify potential infractions.
· The teams review all possible cheats and hacks, this includes identifying use of aimbots, wallhacks and more.
· We’re working to improve our in-game system for reporting potential cheating. Plans are underway to streamline the UI for a more seamless reporting experience.
· For all reports that are received in-game, they are both analyzed and filtered based on key data.
· Once investigations are complete, we will continue to work as quickly as possible to ban.
In addition to that, Infinity Ward states that they will aim to provide a regular count on the latest numbers of bans issued as needed.
While there’s no single solution and sure-fire way to combat cheaters and cheating, what Infinity Ward is doing is definitely a step in the right direction.
