Call of Duty: Warzone is swarmed with cheaters, but Infinity Ward plans to combat them

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released on October 25, 2019. Call of Duty: Warzone was released 5 months later. On April 10th, it was announced that Call of Duty: Warzone has reached 50 Million players worldwide. You’re bound to bump into bad apples, who cheat by aimbot, lagswitch, wallhack, and other game-breaking mechanism to disrupt your gameplay just so they can win consistently. This is not disputed, it’s well known that players can and will hack in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Warzone. I will share two videos with proof of this…

I’m posting my own video where I catch the lagswitch in action… (Keep in mind, this was recorded days before Warzone was even announced.)

Infinity Ward is aware of the cheating that goes on, and even posted a blog post on March 31st. It was posted on Activision’s official blog. Shortly thereafter, Infinity Ward announced on April 13th that they banned 70,000 people from Modern Warfare and Warzone. Today, Infinity Ward sent out a new tweet with the following image…

As you can see, Infinity Ward is thinking of new ways to combat cheaters, hackers, and they’re doing it in ways we hadn’t thought of or seen before.

Starting this week:

Players in Warzone and Modern Warfare who report suspected cheaters will receive confirmation in-game when a player is banned.

Additional Measures:

  • Deployed additional dedicated security updates
  • Updated matchmaking to match suspected cheaters together
  • Increased resources across backend tech, studio, and enforcement teams

Coming Soon:

  • Report-a-player functionality to killcam and spectate modes
