CoD Warzone’s Anti-Cheat Is Hated By Cheaters


Infinity Ward’s Call Of Duty: Warzone anti-cheat efforts are making a massive impact in the free-to-download battle royale.

Just this week the developers have initiated a two-step SMS authentication for new Users who log-in as Free-To-Play.

This action comes after the developers were clearly getting fed up with players misusing the free-to-play action.

Cheaters would merely create a new account, download the free-to-play Warzone and jump back into the action after being banned.

If you have reported a cheater to Infinity Ward, they will give you an in-game confirmation of that cheater’s ban from the game.

Another anti-cheat measure has made it so that cheaters who are caught have to play against one another and not in normal lobbies.

It seems Cheaters are hitting Reddit to complain about these new anti-cheat measures that are being implemented, with one Reddit user saying:

“Now I can never play Warzone because the account that had my phone number on it is shadow banned!” the person said. “and you HAVE to have a valid phone number to play the game!”

Call Of Duty; Warzone's Anti-Cheat Is Hated By Cheaters And Here Is Why

Even cheaters who claim that their cheats are ban-proof are getting caught out by the new measures being implemented, and them and their future accounts are being banned anyway.

One cheater claimed that they had made over 20 Modern Warfare accounts and more than half of them were banned before the player could even get to play the game.

In some well-known cheat sites, Warzone cheaters are asking for help on how to combat new shadowbans believed to be linked to PC hardware.

Some cheaters are even asking if this game is worth the hassle and if it is that much fun to play, having to go through all that trouble.

Infinity Ward appears to be fully committed to its anti-cheating policies and these changes seem to be working as far as a deterrent at least. No anti-cheat is fully fool-proof but due to their continued commitment they are one step closer in the fight against cheating.
