Call of Duty Warzone, players banned en masse

Call of Duty Warzone

One of the problems that has most plagued Call of Duty Warzone, which has reached Season 4 so far, since its release is precisely that of cheaters. The plague is so widespread that it is estimated that everyone at least once participated in games in which there were unfair players, which could only fuel the anger of honest users who just want to have fun. Today, Raven Software's official Twitter profile revealed that it has banned more than 50,000 players who have repeatedly offended others and "a lot of others".

It is not clear what the behaviors that led to the ban were to so many players, although it is highly plausible that Raven Software has mostly hunted cheaters. It is not even the first time that the software house has decided to ban so many users: we remember how in February of this year they managed to hunt 60 thousand users in a single day, while in May the ban of 350 thousand players was announced. in a year, with a total of 500 thousand accounts banned from the launch of Call of Duty Warzone.

We are talking about astronomical figures which, if on the one hand highlight the huge influx of users on Activision's battle royale, from another highlights weaknesses and a particularly difficult community to manage. The problems of cheating and hacking continue since the launch of the game and do not seem to diminish and indeed become increasingly difficult to find due to software that is equally difficult to detect.

Has been a while since our last anti-cheat update!

The phenomenon of cheating is a plague that affects everyone, both honest players and, paradoxically, even those who already use hacks. Activision proves to be firmly convinced that it wants to minimize this problem, but it is clear that the current measures can only limit the damage of a seemingly unstoppable phenomenon. The discontent of the players are many, one more reason why it is difficult to believe that you cannot really find a concrete solution to this problem.

Call of Duty Warzone devs Raven Software confirmed yesterday afternoon that more than 50,000 players were banned in the last week across two waves of bans hitting the popular online shooter.

In a tweet posted on July 16, Raven Software explained that most of the 50k players who got banned were repeat offenders. Raven said these ban waves were mainly focused on repeat offenders. The studio ominously said it also targeted “much more” than repeat offenders, whatever that means.

This is far from the first time Raven has banned thousands of players in a short amount of time. Back in February, Raven banned over 60,000 accounts in Warzone in one day. In May, Raven and Call of Duty publisher Activision reported that over 350k players had been banned in Warzone for racism and toxicity in just the past year. All of these add up to a lot. According to Raven, the studio has banned over 500k players in total. And that was back in May 2021! The number of banned players has surely grown since then.

Warzone has long had a problem with cheaters, basically since day one, when it launched in early 2020. Since then, Activision and Raven Software have continued to fight cheaters and hackers who keep causing problems for players across all platforms.

Things have got really bad recently, with popular Twitch streamers getting hacked while playing the game. And it’s not just on PC where players are dealing with cheaters. Thanks to crossplay cheaters can interact with console gamers during matches. Things aren’t going to get better anytime soon either, as hackers and cheaters create better, harder-to-detect software and hardware that allows for near-undetectable aimbots to be used on all platforms.

Cheating has become so prevalent that some Twitch streamers are even facing accusations of cheating. An entire community of Youtubers and players have formed around catching and exposing Twitch streamers who are believed to be cheating.

All of this is to say that while it’s nice to see Raven fighting the good fight and banning 50,000 more hackers, it’s likely just the tip of a large, ever-growing iceberg.
