Call of Duty: Warzone Banwave

In a blog post, Activision says they banned 60,000 accounts today for cheating in Call of Duty: Warzone, a topic that's inspired recent editorials and departures. They say this brings the total number of permabans to 300,000 since the launch of the free-to-play battle royale mode. Adding that they continue to track down those who provide the software to allow such cheating, they say they have additional measures coming to root out cheat purveyors and their customers. Word is: "We know cheaters are constantly looking for vulnerabilities, and we continue to dedicate resources 24/7 to identify and combat cheats, including aimbots, wallhacks, trainers, stat hacks, texture hacks, leaderboard hacks, injectors, hex editors and any third party software that is used to manipulate game data or memory." Here's a rundown of measures they've already taken:
Since launch we’ve taken a number of dedicated actions:

  • Weekly backend security updates
  • Improved in-game reporting mechanisms
  • Added 2-factor authentication, which has invalidated over 180,000 suspect accounts
  • Eliminated numerous unauthorized third party software providers
  • Increased dedicated teams and resources across software development, engineering, data science, legal and monitoring
  • In addition, we’re increasing our efforts and capabilities in these key areas.
  • Enhancements to our internal anti-cheat software
  • Additional detection technology
  • Adding new resources dedicated to monitoring and enforcement
  • Regular communication updates on progress; more two-way dialogue
  • Zero tolerance for cheat providers
  • Consistent and timely bans

Nornally, you can play without issues 8 out of 10 rounds.
Better than I would have expected...

It's pretty much the same engine ( modified year to year ) for over 10 + years ...with the same cheating issues everytime ..with the same promises of working on it game to game...

So, is there anyone who doesn't cheat who is playing this game? Seems like there would be no reason to. Of course, that is nothing new in the world of FPS.
I do. I've also reported suspicious kills and got a bunch of players banned.
Still, console users have the advantage of auto-aiming (and in some cases, auto-locking) that bother some. Disabling cross-play helps.

so i just watched a video today jgod posted to youtube they were able to get a video of someone admitting to cheating and this person used a rotation of 30 accounts you know the free ones they don't spend any money on the game itself soo bans mean nothing. Second they say and yeah one google search takes about 30sec and 10 bucks to get up and running with the cheats. So 60k out of the what 35 million players playing warzon is like what a spit in the buckets. What they don't tell you is if these are perment bans or the shadowbans. the reason for the 30 rotating accounts is you get shadow baned all the time and they only last 7 days. after the 7 days that banned account rotates back into circulation. soo makes you wonder if any real has changed. I betcha even if it was 60k bans those 60k people will have a new battle net account up and running in 5 min load in there cheats and be up and runing super fast. the crazy part too is the cheats they are using have not had to have been updated since the game first came out.
