Another 15,000 Call of Duty: Warzone accounts have been banned
Raven Software and Activision are continuing their banning spree against cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone. The developer took to Twitter to reveal that another 15,000 accounts have been banned, and that there’s “more to come”, which I believe is becoming their sign-off line for these tweets.
We’ve seen a few ban waves over the past few months. In March, we saw two ban waves with one catching 13,000 accounts though a number wasn’t given on the other tweet. We also got three ban waves in February, so it appears that Raven isn’t letting up anytime soon.
This all follows a blog post from the developer in February that spells out its “zero tolerance” approach towards “cheaters across Call of Duty and Call of Duty: Warzone”. The developer says it’s focusing on combating “both cheaters and cheat providers”, with weekly backend security updates occurring since launch. There have also been an improvement on in-game reporting mechanisms and the introduction of two-factor authentication, which immediately “invalidated over 180,000 suspect accounts”.
