One of the toughest parts of making a competitive online game is keeping cheaters at bay. Developers are constantly battling against cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone, and so far, Raven Software has managed to catch and ban over 500,000 cheaters.
This follows on from a story in April, where the Call of Duty team confirmed that it has been issuing the ban hammer more frequently since February 2021, bringing the total number of banned accounts up to 475,000. Earlier this month, Raven Software, the studio responsible for maintaining Warzone, revealed that an additional 30,000 cheaters have been banned in May 2021.
This brings the total number of cheat accounts to over half a million, presumably across all active platforms that the game is available on. The vast majority of cheaters are likely using the PC platform, simply due to its more open nature compared to consoles, where security measures are harder to bypass.
Of course, anti-cheat and banning accounts is just one part of the battle. There are cheat developers that make a good living off of finding exploits and Activision’s legal team does make efforts to shut down these companies, which often sell high-priced subscriptions for updated cheats for multiple games.
