Cheating Not Tolerated In CoD: Warzone


According to Activision, cheating is not tolerated in CoD: Warzone and there is a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to cheating.

According to their blog post Activision is taking all forms of cheating very seriously.

They have had these policies since day one of Warzone but have kept it pretty quiet.

To quell the cheating, they have been enforcing account bans since day one. To date they have issued 50,000 permabans worldwide.

They employ a number of programs to combat both cheaters and cheat providers they are as follows:

  • Their security teams monitor 24/7 to investigate data and identify potential infractions.
  • The teams review all possible cheats and hacks, this includes identifying the use of aimbots, wallhacks and more.
  • They are working to improve their in-game system for reporting potential cheating. Plans are underway to streamline the UI for a more seamless reporting experience.
  • For all reports that are received in-game, they are both analyzed and filtered based on key data.
  • Once investigations are complete, they will continue to work as quickly as possible to ban perpetrators.

In short, they are dedicated to stopping this issue in its tracks. Though there is no foolproof solution they assure us they are working on this issue 24/7 and that they will provide us with updated numbers on bans if necessary and will continue to reinstate that cheating is not tolerated in CoD: Warzone.
