As with all multiplayer games, Call of Duty: Warzone has a bit of a cheating problem. While Activision and Infinity Ward are hard at work trying to curb the number of cheaters playing the game, the players themselves have found a way to make things a little easier for those looking to play the legitimate way.
By turning off Warzone’s cross-play feature, games are able to take part in CoD matches without having to worry about PC cheaters crossing their path. It seems as though the majority of cheaters are playing on PC, and this is a nice and easy to way to stop them from entering your matches.
Of course, it’s far from ideal – especially if you want to play with your friends on PC – but if you’re a console player it might be worth giving it a shot…
Activision and Infinity Ward recently commented on the free-to-play game’s cheating problem, admitting that over 70,000 cheaters have already been banned from Warzone.
“We’ve now issued over 70,000 bans worldwide to protect #Warzone from cheaters,” said the developer. “We’re continuing to deploy dedicated security updates and work continues on improving in-game reporting. We’ll share more details soon. We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters.”
Activision also issued a statement: “There’s no place for cheating in games. Warzone has zero tolerance for cheaters. Here is what we’re doing about it,
“We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities. This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn’t always something we discuss publicly.”
Hopefully we’ll start to see some anti-cheating measures put in place via the next game update. Until then, you might want to disable cross-play.
