The Call of Duty team has finally come out with a new update on their anti-cheat progress. Posted to the official Call of Duty blog, this update details what steps their teams are taking in order to root out cheaters and repeat offenders across Call of Duty and Call of Duty Warzone.
If you want to read the entire update, it’s posted on their website. For a brief summary, continue reading.
The report begins by reassuring fans of the series that their efforts have not wavered – in fact, alongside their daily bans to individual offenses or repeat offenders, they’ve also continued to issue large banwaves, with this week’s marking the seventh large banwave since February alone.
They also assure that removing cheaters and taking away their ability to move to alternate accounts is a key focus for their security teams, and in doing so, they’ve increased their efforts in the following ways:
- Utilizing 2-factor authentication to make it harder to access new accounts simply to cheat
- Ramping-up additional resources to support our security and enforcement teams
- Increased frequency of high-volume banwaves in addition to our daily banning of repeat offending accounts
- Improving regular communications and updates
On top of all that, they also continue issuing hardware bans against both repeat and serial cheaters, and their research team is hard at work to find ways to prevent matters from continuing.
Lastly, the team had this to say:
“Again, there is no place for cheating. Delivering a fair and fun experience for all players is our top priority. On behalf of all the teams across our Call of Duty® security and enforcement groups covering Warzone, Modern Warfare and Black Ops, we will not rest, and we appreciate your patience.”
Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come as cheaters continue to rampage the games.
