Whether it’s being able to see players through walls or being able to lock onto opponents without having to move, cheating in Warzone has been a problematic issue despite the best efforts of Raven Software which is attempting to crack down on the issue with regular ban waves.

An illegal unlock tool that has yet to be shut down is continuing to plague the game, and is enabling players to reach Level 1000, unlock all weapons, camos and gives them access to unreleased blueprints and Operator skins.

The player also went on to say that Warzone is in desperate need of a dedicated piece of anti-cheat software in order to prevent players from gaining unfair advantages.

VALORANT’s Vanguard software was met with its fair share of controversy when the game first released. Despite the controversy, Vanguard has done an exceptional job in cracking down on anyone attempting to gain an unfair advantage.

What Can Be Done?

Activision isn’t afraid to take legal action against the companies creating and selling third-party cheats for Warzone, Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War.

While shutting down the companies creating the cheats is a step in the right direction, the lack of a dedicated anti-cheat is the real issue.

A piece of background software that detects any kind of cheating running at all times is the best way to combat cheating, and while Raven Software is doing its best, the ban waves are always going to miss tens of thousands of players that are continuing to use these cheats.

As the demand for an anti-cheat continues to increase, surely Activision and Raven Software have to implement some kind of software before the ban waves prove ineffective?
