Despite the best efforts of Raven Software and Activision, Warzone is full of cheaters using a variety of software in order to gain an unfair advantage over opponents on the streets of Verdansk and Rebirth Island. Since its release, the battle royale has become one of the most popular in the genre, with millions playing on a regular basis. In July, Raven Software revealed that another 50,000 cheaters had been banned, much to the delight of the community that has been demanding some kind of intervention for several months.
Even though the ban waves are dealing with tens of thousands of cheaters, there are many that continue to run rampant within Warzone, so much so that players have requested changes to the game's player reporting system.
Warzone Player Reporting Changes
Even though players do have the ability to report players that they suspect of cheating, many of the reports often go overlooked. In order to improve player reporting, Reddit user 'WavingBuddy' started a discussion surrounding the improvements that players want to be made.
A number of users communicated their thoughts on Warzone's ongoing battle with cheaters, with one wondering why Raven Software and Activision don't utilise the shadowban feature more. "You can't even get cheaters shadowbanned from pure reports anymore though that used to work when 10+ people reported them in 'x' minutes," they claimed.
Even though Raven and Activision have provided more transparency as to how they are combatting the issue of cheating, many players are convinced that not enough work is being done in order to address the problem. As more players address their concerns, a lack of intervention could well cause a decline in the Warzone player base.
