Cold War Players To Be Unbanned Following Sail 630 Nuclear Bug

If you've had your Call of Duty account banned following the 'Sail 630 Nuclear Bug' warning message, then you may be in luck after Treyarch confirms it'll be reversing some of these enforcement measures.

The bug, which essentially relates to a disconnect that some players have been using as an exploit, triggered a mass wave of bans on PC. While Treyarch previously insisted that the issue and the bans were not linked, a new update suggests that this is the case.

Cold War Players To Be Unbanned Following Sail 630 Nuclear Bug

In a new Reddit response from the game's community manager, FoxhoundFPS, the following explanation was given:

The Sail 630 Nuclear Bug notice is indeed a disconnect message as previously shared and now noted by your peers. If you are disconnected mid-match, this error has the potential to show up.

We have an update to share: recent account enforcements have been reviewed and, where appropriate, accounts believed to be operating in good faith have been restored. Accounts that included additional flags for exploits will retain their enforcement.

As always, we encourage everyone to enjoy Zombies on PC within the terms of service.

When pressed on the reasons for suggestions that the bans were not linked to the bug, FoxhoundFPS explained:

We've always relayed the most recent information available at the time of postings. According to the data available to us, accounts that have retained their enforcement are verified to have broken the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Security and Enforcement Policy. Accounts believed to be operating in good faith have been restored.

If you've been hit by the bug, it's probably worth logging in to see if your account has been reactivated.

While that bug may have been squashed, Warzone has its own issues with players getting around its radiation zones.
