People who are playing the free Warzone client must now use two-factor authentication to get into the battle royale game.

Call of Duty: Warzone is trying to rid itself of cheaters on PC, as developer Infinity Ward has implemented mandatory two-factor authentication (2FA) for the battle royale game. New security updates require Warzone PC players to enable two-factor authentication before they can use their account. It aims to keep cheaters from entering games and ruining everyone else's fun.

According to Infinity Ward, this is "another step to provide an additional layer of security for players." Note that 2FA is only required for people who are playing the free-to-play client, not those who are accessing Warzone through Modern Warfare. This new 2FA update only applies to PC.

With more than 60 million players, there were always going to be some bad eggs in Warzone. For what it's worth, other popular battle royale games such as PUBG and Fortnite have also acknowledged cheating issues.

Warzone players who have been identified as cheaters are being placed in matches together as a way to combat the issue. Looking ahead, Infinity Ward is planning to add a player-reporting feature to the Warzone kill cams and spectator modes. Not including Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward has already banned more than 70,000 cheaters from Warzone.
