Call Of Duty: Warzone Has Banned Over 500,000 Cheaters
There is no denying that cheating is fairly common in Call of Duty, especially when it comes to its free-to-play battle royale portion. Warzone has been evolving since it was released, but one thing has seemingly remained: cheaters. That said, following the latest round of bans, there are now over half of a million players who have been banned.
In a recent tweet from Raven Software, the developer revealed that a fresh wave of bans consisted of over 30,000 players being taken out of Call of Duty: Warzone. In addition to this, there have been a total of over 500,000 players removed from the popular title for malicious activities.

Considering Call of Duty: Warzone has over 100 million players, it is going to be rather difficult for the developers to catch every single cheater that rolls through. Of course, there aren’t exactly any serious consequences for those who cheat, especially in a free-to-play game. Hardware bans are used against serial cheaters, but those who wish to bring down the experience of others can often be more determined to cheat than they should be.
Call of Duty: Warzone is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and new-gen consoles. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as we learn when the number of players banned for cheating will surpass 1 million, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
