Activision is constantly improving its anti-cheat system, banning more than 475,000 cheaters on Call of Duty: Warzone.
Yesterday’s ban wave had more than 30,000 accounts banned, making it the seventh set of large ban waves to the game since February. Activision also claims to ban individuals and repeat offenders daily.
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.
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.
According to them, delivering a fair and fun experience for all players is their top priority. So they will relentlessly try their best to eradicate the cheaters and exploits from the game permanently.
