Recently, there has been a surge in complaints about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Warzone and the issue of cheaters. Many console owners playing via cross-play have spoken out about the number of cheaters entering the matchmaking pool. Since then, Infinity Ward has responded, detailing a few measures to help alleviate the problem.
In a tweet earlier this week, the studio announced that players in Warzone and other Modern Warfare multiplayer modes will receive an in-game confirmation when a reported player is banned. The game has also had new security updates and additional resources dedicated to backend tech and enforcement teams.

Importantly, suspected cheaters will also be placed into their own matchmaking pool. Similarly to Apex Legends, reported cheaters should be matched against each other, keeping them out of the main matchmaking pool.
In the weeks to come, players will also be able to report players based on killcam and spectator mode footage.
KitGuru Says: With Warzone being so successful, Infinity Ward will want to contain any cheating issues as quickly as possible. Hopefully, the new updates rolled out this week will begin to fix the issue. Have many of you run into cheaters in Modern Warfare?
