The Anti-Cheat laid out by Activision prevents hackers from playing on new accounts after being hit with the ban hammer on Call of Duty: Warzone.

Ever since Call of Duty: Warzone was released in March of 2020, the devs have been constantly dealing with cheaters. In an effort to deal with repeat offenders, Activision had confirmed that it would be launching an Anti-cheat system that is essentially a hardware ban.

Now, a Warzone Hacker has confirmed being hit with the said hardware ban. After being banned from his old account, his new account was also imminently banned after being created. The hacker took to TikTok to explain his situation. He stated:

“I’ve been cheating for a little bit, I’ve been posting TikToks and it’s been fun. Every one of my accounts is banned. Every single one. Without even me playing it. They hardware banned my sh*t.”

Raven Software has been dealing with cheaters for a while now. The hackers have been terrorizing other players’ Warzone experience by crashing their games. Moreover, they had also found ways to reach Level 1000 and unlock all camos.

In an effort to tackle this, Raven software has banned over 50,000 accounts this month. Furthermore, their new anti-cheat system bans hackers’ new accounts before they can even play a single match with it. With this, the current tally of Warzone Bans has reached 650,000 accounts.

However, despite being banned, the hacker applauded Activision for its efforts in improving the game’s anti-cheat systems. He commented that this positive change will draw players back into the game, who frustratingly left due to losing at the hands of cheaters. Most notably, YouTuber NICKMERCS was also one of the players who quit playing Call of Duty: Warzone due to the uprising of hackers in the game. With Raven Software’s efforts, Warzone may be free of cheats soon enough.
