Activision also claims to ban cheat providers and resellers. This means the suspicious accounts that are sold to repeating offenders were recently banned by them.

“We also are tackling the commercial market of cheat providers and resellers. This includes suspicious accounts, which are farmed and often sold to repeat offenders. We recently banned 45,000 fraudulent, black market accounts used by repeat offenders.”

Removing cheaters and taking away the opportunity for them to use alternate accounts is their key focus right now. They also claim to increase their efforts in these key areas:   

  • Utilizing 2-factor authentication to make it harder to access new accounts simply to cheat
  • Ramping up additional resources to support our security and enforcement teams
  • Increased frequency of high-volume banwaves in addition to our daily banning of repeat offending accounts
  • Improving regular communications and updates

Activision also stated that they are hardware banning repeat or serial cheaters in the game. This means that the particular machine’s hardware specifications are recorded when the ban is issued to the cheater. Hence, no matter how many new alternate accounts are created to use in the game, playing on that machine will not be possible.
