100,000 More CoD: Warzone Accounts Have Been Banned

Raven Software announces a huge ban wave has removed more cheaters from Warzone.


Activision continues to purge cheaters from Call of Duty: Warzone. Developer Raven Software announced that a ban wave hit Warzone on August 24, axing more than 100,000 accounts.

Raven's tweet reveals this ban wave targeted repeat offenders and cheat providers at the source. Warzone's last ban wave was back in July, and more than half a million accounts have now been banned for cheating and other offenses.

While these ban waves seem to just be applying a Band-Aid to the problem, leaving cheaters to eventually resurface, Activision has officially announced that Call of Duty: Warzone will get a brand-new map and new PC anti-cheat system with the integration of Call of Duty: Vanguard. This major update doesn't have an official date, but the new map is announced to be arriving later this year, presumably sometime after the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard this November.

In other news, Call of Duty: Warzone's August 25 update added a new "Looking for Party" feature to help players find new teammates based on several different preferences such as game modes and playstyles.
