Call of Duty: Warzone – 60000 accounts banned by Activision
Cheaters have been making life difficult in Call of Duty: Warzone since its launch on March 10, 2020, but Activision is returning the favor.
On the night of Tuesday, February 2 to Wednesday 3 of the same month, Activision decided to dot the i’s by banning a total of 60,000 accounts for using cheat software while playing Call of Duty: Warzone. A severe fallout increases the total number of accounts banned since the launch of the game to 300,000.
“We have zero-tolerance for cheaters in Call of Duty and Call of Duty: Warzone. Our goal is to fight both cheaters and cheat providers. Today, we have banned 60,000 accounts for confirmed cheating software use in Warzone, bringing our total to date to over 300,000 accounts permanently banned since its launch”.
But Activision does not intend to stop there. On their official website, it declares that they want to continue their efforts to identify the source, namely the providers of unauthorized third-party software for modding and pirating.
“We are committed to providing a fair and fun experience for all players. This is a dedicated goal for our security, enforcement, and technology teams”.
Activision takes advantage of this situation to recall the various actions that the publisher has taken to counter cheating methods, starting with the establishment of weekly security updates, an improvement in the mechanisms of in-game reports, and especially the addition of 2-factor authentication, a method that has already invalidated more than 180,000 suspicious accounts.
“We know that cheaters are constantly looking for vulnerabilities. We continue to dedicate resources 24/7 to identify and combat cheaters, including aimbots, wallhacks, and third-party software used to manipulate data. Or the memory of the game”.
As a reminder, Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and is compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S. Stay tuned for the next update.
