Despite having anti-cheat software installed for the longest time, Call of Duty had been harboring a lot of cheaters for quite some time now. But after backlash from pro players, YouTubers, and Twitch streamers, Activision finally decided to take things seriously – improving their system and dropping a ban hammer equivalent to a Thanos snap.
Activision confirmed to the BBC that its anti-cheat has been in place in the game’s launch but that it will be making significant investment to improve the software.
Activision also emphasised other preventative measures in place on Warzone, including:
- weekly security updates
- improved in-game reporting
- two-factor authentication
“There’s no place for cheating,” the statement added.
“We are listening and will not stop in our efforts.”
