Activision has warned that the developers have started taking action against Ranked Play progression boosting players.

The official Call of Duty Updates account on Twitter posted that the team will have ramped up action against Rank Play progression boosting. The post stated that Ranked Play progression boosting will violate the Call of Duty Security and Enforcement policy, and the team has already started taking action against all detected accounts.

Ranked Play progression boosting is in violation of the Call of Duty Security and Enforcement Policy. Ahead of the launch for Season 3, we have taken action against all detected accounts that engaged in any form of boosting behavior within our competitive environment across Ranked Play modes for Modern Warfare III multiplayer and Call of Duty: Warzone. The accounts flagged for such activities will undergo a reset of their account SR progression, serving as an initial measure as we investigate the severity of their misconduct for potential further consequences.

Additionally, we have placed a high priority on the integrity of our Ranked Play leaderboards by clearing them of the accounts in question.

Fostering a fair and competitive environment for all of our players remains a top priority. We will continue to monitor leaderboards with new detections to identify boosted accounts and may fully reset SR on detected boosted accounts periodically to ensure our leaderboards reflect good, fair gameplay.

The initiative has received much positive feedback from fans, but most comments also requested more security precautions within the game. Many supporters expect additional anti-cheat measures and a resolution for shadow-ban problems.

This step from Activision is a positive development, and things are starting to look better for Call of Duty. In addition, it gained more traction after Call of Duty cheat provider Interwebz was shut down a few weeks ago. However, Interwebz revealed that a legal notice was the reason why it was shut down.
