Infinity Ward has shared an update on the Activision Blog about what they are doing in regards to cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Users have been complaining about hackers and cheaters in the game since it launched on March 10, with many users encountering these almost every game.

The studio says they have banned over 50,000 cheaters worldwide since the games launch and are doing more to ensure that cheaters are removed.

Here’s what they are doing:

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. 

We have been enforcing account bans since Day 1 of Warzone’s release. To date, we issued more than 50,000 permabans worldwide.

We employ a number of programs in place to combat both cheaters and cheat providers.  

  • Our security teams monitor 24/7 to investigate data and identify potential infractions. 
  • The teams review all possible cheats and hacks, this includes identifying use of aimbots, wallhacks and more.
  • We’re working to improve our in-game system for reporting potential cheating. Plans are underway to streamline the UI for a more seamless reporting experience.
  • For all reports that are received in-game, they are both analyzed and filtered based on key data.
  • Once investigations are complete, we will continue to work as quickly as possible to ban.

Moving forward, we will aim to provide a regular count on the latest number of bans issued, as needed.

Simply put there’s no place for cheating. We recognize that there’s no single solution for combating cheaters, it’s a constant enforcement every day, 24/7. Rest assured, we’re committed to ensuring a fun and fair experience for everyone.

Modern Warfare®

This week the Shoot the Ship-tember playlist is breaking off into 24/7 Shoot House and 24/7 Shipment, players can battle in a trio in Gunfight 3v3 Snipers, experience an objective moshpit in Deathmatch Domination + Drop Zone, and play in the weekend only Warzone mode – Mini Royale Trios.

A double dose of objective fun is available in the Deathmatch Domination + Drop Zone mosh pit. In Deathmatch Domination, earn points for capturing objective and eliminating enemy players so OBJ and slayers can earn score. In Drop Zone, hold the objective to receive the gift of Care Packages and a flurry of Killstreaks that keeps the match interesting. All Care Packages are up for grabs, it just takes longer to capture enemy packages, but good things are worth the wait.

Get with your squad and battle in Gunfight 3v3 Snipers. Map knowledge is key to success in this sniper shoot-out as is teammate communication. Make callouts and watch the flag during Overtime.

Get a new look for Ghost in the ‘Beyond the Pale’ bundle with his ‘Dreadwood’ skin. The bundle also includes two Legendary blueprints – the Spanish Moss and Old Road – a watch, calling card, emblem, spray, quip, weapon charm, and gesture. 

Put the enemy on notice with the ‘Notice Me: IV’ bundle. It’s included blueprint, Showcase, deals high damage and has extra oomph in both the range in accuracy category making this a sniper rifle worth noticing. In addition to the Epic Showcase sniper blueprint, players will also get a weapon charm, calling card, and emblem when they pick up the bundle in Store.

This weekend only, battle in Warzone Mini Royale Trios. A short, sweet, and intense variant, Mini Royale likens the experience to the first and final minutes of a standard Battle Royale match.

Published

on

A new Activision job listing on the company’s site is stating that Call of Duty: Warzone is coming to mobile devices in the future.

The job listing – called Executive Producer, Features – says that the job is for “WZM,” which appears to be the codename for Warzone Mobile.

It also says that this job is for a “new mobile FPS in the Call of Duty Franchise.” “As Executive Producer, Features you will own product framing and player experience of a new AAA mobile FPS in the Call of Duty franchise.

The listing states that this person has to “harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.”

Further, the listing states that this person needs to learn how to adapt Warzone into a mobile experience and understand what aspects of the mode need to carry over. The console experience can be somewhat replicated on mobile thanks to advancements in mobile development over the years.

Improve upon the Warzone formula by proposing and producing mobile-specific additions and changes to features to ensure a best-in-class mobile experience that players will love.”

Serve as primary point of contact on Warzone Mobile leadership team for clarity and decisions on user-facing features, UX and overall quality.”

Call of Duty: Warzone released on March 10 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as a free to play game part of the Modern Warfare world. It will be expanded to connect with Black Ops Cold War this fall.

Call of Duty: Warzone has seen incredible success the last several months, with the game getting over 75 million players. A release on mobile would help expand the title to more regions worldwide where consoles and PCs are not as accessible.

Activision already has a mobile Call of Duty game, that is free to play and features its own Battle Royale mode. The BR mode in Call of Duty: Mobile has locations from the Modern Warfare and Black Ops mode combined into a singular experience.

This appears to be a different FPS mobile Call of Duty game that will bring Warzone’s experience to players on the go. It’s not clear who is developing this new Warzone mobile experience.

Stay tuned for any updates on this.
