Developers block more than 60,000 cheaters, high-profile player gives up


from Michael Miskulin
The online first person shooter Call of Duty: Warzone is back in the headlines thanks to cheaters. The cheater problem is now so big that even high-profile players throw in the towel and withdraw from the game.

As reported by the BBC, Youtuber Vikkstar has made the decision to hang up his hat and withdraw from the free-to-play battle royal title Warzone. Vikkstar has more than seven million subscribers. He previously posted a video claiming Warzone was “in the worst shape ever”. He also accuses Activision of not addressing the in-game hacking problem. He was even able to watch a hacker live stream his cheating work on Facebook Gaming. The Warzone player base is full of hackers who can be found in almost every lobby.

Call of Duty: Warzone According to the fan community on the PC has ineffective cheat protection, which means that some players even question how safe professional tournaments with several hundred thousand US dollars really are. FaZe member Nicholas “Nickmercs” Kolcheff recently agreed on Twitter: “Without Anti-Cheat, authentic Warzone tournaments are simply no longer possible.”

CoD: Warzone – Stim bug still possible despite several patches

Activision has meanwhile carried out another anti-cheat measure. On Tuesday, the developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfore and Warzone blocked more than 60,000 cheater accounts from these titles. The developers announced this on the same day via the official Twitter account. A total of 300,000 Permabans have been issued worldwide since the launch. In the same breath Activision repeats its efforts to address the cheat provider as a source. Whether these current efforts can really improve the mood in the community is more than questionable.
