Over 18 months from its original release, Call Of Duty: Warzone continues to soar to higher heights, yet it hasn't been smooth sailing. In this latest update, Raven Software has reiterated its commitment to ensuring the game is enjoyable and exciting for all legitimate players.
More than 50,000 accounts have been booted from the game for good over the course of the last week, and of this number, a proportion of these are repeat offenders. Winning a match of Warzone, whether on your ownsome or leaping into the fray with your squad, is such a satisfying feeling. I appreciate that a person might be drawn to software that would ensure they had the edge over their opponents but I think the adrenaline-pumping moments of Warzone are cheapened when you already know the outcome. Players who have really honed their skill with hours and hours of work are shamed as they are effectively playing against a machine, and lucky escapes feel like you've rolled a loaded die.
Settle in for a compilation of the most incredible wins and fails in Warzone right here.
Here's hoping that this most recent wave of bans is the sort of action that players want to see from Raven Software and Activision in order to safeguard their experience of the game. The community has suggested that there should be console-only crossplay to discourage unscrupulous players, even though that would leave PC players in the lurch.
"The game is literally unplayable at the moment. We've seen moments in Warzone where cheating was rampant, but this time it feels like we're just outnumbered," said one player. Hackers are always going to pop up in any online game, and there was a moment where these players were actually championing and congratulating themselves on tilting legitimate players on TikTok.
In fact, the problem is so prevalent that pro players are not safe from accusations of cheating. Charlie 'MuTeX' Sauoma has been in the hot seat after an application that may be used to alter controller inputs in PC titles was spotted on his desktop. He uninstalled the application, while stating that he hadn't used the software in years, and still his detractors weren't convinced. So, he did the only thing he could do in such a situation. He set up five cameras watching his every move in matches of Warzone to show that his skills really were his own.
