As Season 5 of Warzone moves towards the halfway stage and the start of Season 5 Reloaded, players are still encountering hackers using all kinds of methods in order to gain an unfair advantage over the opposition, much to the annoyance of the community that has grown tired of cheaters ruining the battle royale. Thanks to ban waves taking place on a regular basis, the number of cheaters appearing in the Call of Duty battle royale is slowly beginning to drop.
While Activision and Raven Software may not be vocal about how they're tackling the problem, the Call of Duty Twitter account has posted a video of a hacker revealing the effectiveness of the hardware bans being enforced.
Warzone Hardware Ban Effectiveness
Cheaters often bypassed their bans by creating another account to continue playing the game but thanks to the hardware bans, cheaters are no longer able to play the game on their PC, much to the delight of the community. The video posted on Call of Duty's Twitter showcases how effective the bans are at preventing repeat offenders.
"I've been cheating for a little bit, it's been fun," the banned hacker explains. "Every one of my accounts are banned, every single one with even me playing it." While this video did poke fun at the expense of the cheater, it's certainly a great way of showing how effective their anti-cheat strategy is.
As Activision and Raven Software continues to increase their efforts to prevent cheaters from ruining Warzone, all eyes are on Call of Duty: Vanguard's release which will see the launch of an all-new Warzone map and dedicated anti-cheat in a bid to clamp down on the issue once and for all.
