Activision permabans over 50,000 cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone

Publisher says it has "zero tolerance" policy on cheaters and will issue regular updates on number of bans handed out

Activision has permanently banned over 50,000 cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone since it was released last month.

In a blog post on the publisher's website, Activision said it takes a "zero tolerance" stance on cheating in its newly released free-to-play battle royale title.

Activision employs a 24/7 security team to investigate data and identify potential cheaters, such as aim bots, wallhacks, and more.

"We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities," said Activision.

"This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn't always something we discuss publicly."

However, going forward, the publisher said it aims to provides regular updates on the number of bans issued for cheating.

It would be very difficult to keep cheaters away from a free-to-play game but it is good to see that Activision is keeping an eye of such people and at least taking some kind of action against them. Even though it would not be a difficult thing for these people to make a new account and get straight back in but there is always good to do something than nothing. If you talk about the game itself then for me it is one of the best games I have ever played. It is easy to get wins when with your friends, the graphics are also great and the range of weapons is also awesome.
