The publisher told PC Gamer that its latest effort to combat cheaters has seen 30,000 accounts banned from the free-to-play battle royale game.
Warzone had attracted 85 million players as of December 2020, according to Activision. On February 2, 2021, the company said it had issued over 300,000 permabans worldwide since the game launched in March 2020.
“We know cheaters are constantly looking for vulnerabilities, and we continue to dedicate resources 24/7 to identify and combat cheats, including aimbots, wallhacks, trainers, stat hacks, texture hacks, leaderboard hacks, injectors, hex editors and any third party software that is used to manipulate game data or memory,” it said.
“Our ongoing security and enforcement efforts are franchise wide across Warzone, Modern Warfare and Black Ops.”
