Since launching Call of Duty: Warzone, Raven Software has been in a nonstop battle against cheaters, banning tens of thousands of accounts on a regular basis. With Call of Duty: Vanguard coming soon, new anti-cheat technology will be implemented.
Back in August, Raven Software teased this move, stating that it is “listening and hard at work” on future anti-cheat protections. Other sources also confirmed that Activision is working on a new anti-cheat system for the next major release.
That brings us to this week, with Activision issuing a warning to cheaters:
“Cheating ruins the fun for everyone. No one likes a cheater. Our goal is to deliver a fun and fair gaming experience for our developers. For our fans. And most importantly, for Call of Duty players everywhere. Cheaters aren’t welcome. There’s no tolerance for cheaters, and soon you’ll know what we mean.”
With that ominous warning out of the way, it sounds like Activision is going to make a big show out of its new anti-cheat technology ahead of Vanguard's launch on the 5th of November. Typically, Call of Duty titles have been very prone to cheaters, and with over 100 million Warzone players to keep an eye on, it will need a particularly strong method, perhaps something akin to Riot Vanguard, which Riot Games uses for Valorant on PC.

KitGuru Says: While promises of strong anti-cheat are all well and good, we'll have to wait until launch to see just how effective it really is. Even then, eventually someone will find a workaround and developers will need to monitor and adjust swiftly to keep on top of it.
