Game news Call of Duty: Warzone – Activision continues its fight against scammers
Since the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Activision has never stopped facing armies of scammers. Just a few days ago, the American publisher was proud to announce that almost 15,000 accounts had been blocked. Today there are almost 30,000 additional accounts that are blocked for the successful Battle Royale.
In just one week, therefore, more than 30,000 additional accounts were blocked for the game Call of Duty: Warzone. The news was re-shared by Raven Software on their official Twitter account.
This means that since launching a year ago, more than 475,000 scammers have been kicked out of Battle Royale and more than 175,000 accounts have been banned since February 1st. In fact, on February 3, 2021, Activision announced that it was increasingly fighting fraud, counting more than 300,000 accounts that have been permanently banned since it was launched.
For Activision, this new fallout marked the seventh wave of high-volume bans since February. Here, too, the American giant does not want to stop and wants to strengthen the protection of its game again, for example by removing repeat offenders directly. Until recently, more than 45,000 repeat offenders have tried to regain a foothold in Battle Royale, but to no avail thanks to the new anti-cheat measures.

To prevent the latter from returning to spoil honest gamers’ games, Activision has been working on brand new technology to ban repeat offenders by recording the ID of the various components that make up their machine.
Providing a fair and fun experience for all players is our number one priority. We will not rest and thank you for your patience. activation
