Call of Duty: Warzone has seen its' fair share of criticism over the handling of cheaters in the game, and rightly so. While there has been a full anti-cheat announced coming after Call of Duty: Vanguard launches, that is still a few months off. In the meantime, players are still being hounded by cheaters in many matches, but it seems Raven is doing its' best to combat what they can.

In order to prevent repeat offenders from cheating, Raven and the Warzone team have made a lot of changes to the way bans work. They have made it much harder to just recreate an account and play again which is what has been happening. So while Raven has not been able to combat the cheating issue at large they are doing what they can to curb it.

The problem is, however, that even though they are trying to curb the issue, without an anti-cheat any attempts to stop or slow down cheaters will not work long term. They will simply find ways to work around software without anti-cheat. While 50,000 sounds like a big number to be banned, this is a game with millions of players worldwide. The percentage of cheaters banned isn't actually that large, and many of the cheaters in that 50,000 will find some way back into Verdansk with aimbot anyways. Raven can ban cheaters they find over and over again as much as they wish, but until they have a working anti-cheat in the game, hackers will continue to find ways to run rampant in Verdansk.
