Over half a million Call of Duty: Warzone accounts have now been banned for cheating.
After banning a further 30,000 unscrupulous players yesterday, Warzone co-developer Raven Software confirmed that that brings the total of banned accounts to a staggering 500,000.
Raven didn’t elaborate on whether or not this was on a single platform or shared across all of them, nor what the cheaters were actually doing to warrant the ban hammer – but at least it shows that the studio takes cheating seriously, and is holding cheaters to account.
The replies, however, are full of players positing that their bans were unfair, as their accounts had been hacked by cheaters at the time, so make of that what you will.
Banned over 30,000 malicious accounts across Call of Duty yesterday… bringing us to over half a million accounts banned in #Warzone. ?

ICYMI, Raven recently already issued a fix for an exploit that allowed players to create unbreakable gas masks, which should now hopefully prevent people from camping out in the gas.
It’s not such good news for the Stadium glitch, which has been a known problem for several weeks and allows players to sink unnoticed under the map to snipe unsuspecting players without retaliation.
