The developers of Call of Duty: Warzone continue to take aim at cheaters in the battle royale game. After banning 60,000 accounts just last week, developer Raven Software has now confirmed yet another ban wave–and the studio is prepared to drop the banhammer again.
“Stepping up anti-cheat efforts on all fronts,” the developer said. “More to come. Let’s keep Warzone clean!”

With many millions of players, the developers of Warzone face a very difficult and ongoing task of weeding out bad actors from the battle royale game. With a game of that size and scale, some portion of the audience will be jerks who try to ruin the experience for others, and this has been and continues to be the case.
Just recently, Treyarch banned 60,000 accounts from Warzone for cheating, which increased the total number of bans since launch to more than 300,000.
Activision is keeping busy trying to weed out jerks from Warzone and the company will continue to do so by implementing the following measures in the future:
- Enhancements to 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
These anti-cheat announcements came after several high-profile streamers announced they would quit Warzone due to all the cheaters.
