Activision Bans 60,000 Call of Duty: Warzone Cheaters Following Community Outrage
Recently, popular YouTuber and streamer Vikkstar posted a video explaining that Call of Duty was riddled with cheaters, which led him to quit the game for the time being. The video even showed another player cheating during their live stream, and though the cheater lost, it still added insult to injury.
To respond to these issues, Activision has since banned 60,000 Call of Duty accounts that were confirmed to be using cheats. Moreover, both Activision and Raven Software have fully committed to increased communication, better anti-cheat software, along with consistent and timely bans, which will hopefully make Call of Duty better overall. As the blog post explains, “There’s no place for cheating. We’re committed to this cause. We are listening and will not stop in our efforts.”

The fact players can livestream themselves blatantly hacking with zero repurcussions blows my mind. This guy is 2nd prestige & broadcasts hours of himself hacking.

Overall, it is great to see the Call of Duty team commit to changes, but they ultimately need to be implemented and work for the players to be effective. We will have to see if the game improves, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of cheaters in Call of Duty and the changes the development team is committed to make.
