While cheating has been a huge problem in Call of Duty: Warzone, co-developer Raven Software has revealed that it has officially banned over 500,000 “malicious accounts” since the battle royale was released last year.
Raven shared the news on Twitter, confirming that its latest banwave of 30,000 accounts has brought the total of banned accounts to over half a million.
This is another step in the efforts by the teams behind Call of Duty to curb this cheating epidemic. Last month, the team shared an update as to how it was planning on combating these cheaters, including issuing bans seven days a week, tackling the commercial market of cheat providers and resellers, and stopping cheaters from moving to alternate accounts.
Raven has also continued to fix exploits discovered in Warzone, including a map exploit in Verdansk ’84, one that had a Mini Gun spawning from Supply Boxes, and one that allowed players to use the Gas Mask indefinitely.
