Infinity Ward reiterates on cheating

It has been a while since Infinity Ward discussed anything about the rampant cheating that goes on in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Call of Duty: Warzone. On April 21st, Infinity Ward implemented new measures to combat the cheating, hacking, and other game-breaking mechanisms. Since then, the hacking, the cheating that goes on in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone has somewhat subsided, but it’s noticeable.

On July 24th, about 3-4 months after the initial message, Infinity Ward posted a new tweet to reiterate that hacking, cheating, or modifying your console, modifying your device, or your files to alter the gameplay of Modern Warfare or Warzone, you’ll be banned from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Warzone.

The message reads as follows “1. Cheating will not be tolerated. More banwaves are coming. If you receive a ban it is for unauthorized manipulation of game data. Don’t fall for unscrupulous services offering cheats and modifications, these are fraudulent.

2. Please do not use unauthorized 3rd party software mod or hack. This includes fools such as hex editors, that equip items you have not acquired properly. We define this as cheating and there is no place for that in our game. This is a bannable offense and you risk losing your account.

3. Unauthorized 3rd party software includes, but is not limited to aimbots, wallhacks, trainers, stats hacks, texture hacks, leaderboard hacks, injectors, hex editors or any software used to deliberately modify game data or memory. Don’t do it. This may result in being banned.

4. Avoid tutorials and services that offer ways to modify your camo. Anything that support altering the memory on your console or PC in order to acquire new gear, items or loadouts beyond what is offered in-game is a hack, and is considered cheating. We will enforce accordingly, which result in being banned.”

If I may suggest something, Infinity Ward, look into lagswitches. Because, before Warzone came out, Modern Warfare lagged. Just a few days ago, we had another one of those lag spikes, but this time, instead of lagging inconsistently, it only lags when you’re being killed by one of those players who lags.
