Call Of Duty: Warzone Bans Over 70,000 Cheaters
It hasn’t been long since Infinity Ward and Activision released Call of Duty: Warzone, their free-to-play 150-player battle royale title that is sort of attached to Modern Warfare, but doesn’t require the game to be played. However, one major problem that popped up shortly after launch was cheating, and it has seemingly only gotten worse. Thankfully, the devs have finally stepped in to rectify the situation.
Infinity Ward recently took to Twitter to let players know that over 70,000 players have been banned from Call of Duty: Warzone for cheating. “We’re continuing to deploy dedicated security updates and work continues on improving in-game reporting,” they said. “We’ll share more details soon. We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters.”
We’ve now issued over 70,000 bans worldwide to protect #Warzone from cheaters. We’re continuing to deploy dedicated security updates and work continues on improving in-game reporting. We’ll share more details soon. We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters.

Two weeks ago, Activision shared a blog post that roughly outlined what they plan to do about cheaters. Information isn’t fully out there as they are likely trying not to let everyone know what exactly they are working with, which will hopefully only result in cheaters being banned and not able to find workarounds. In any case, the Call of Duty: Warzone devs are doing something about cheating, so here is to hoping for more pleasant and fair experiences in the popular title.
Call of Duty: Warzone is currently free-to-play on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
