Call Of Duty Cheat-Makers Sorry "For Any Pain Caused" To Gamers Amid Lawsuit

What's worse than getting killed in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Warzone when you're on a hot streak? Being killed while you're on a hot streak when the killcam shows the other player very clearly using cheats in order to get the edge against others in online games. Absolute wastemen.

I'd just like to start this by making it very clear that if you use cheats in online games you are the lowest of the low, and even the makers of these cheats have been forced to apologise for the fact they've enabled you to be the human form of a floater in a public swimming pool.

The apology comes after Call Of Duty's publisher Activision initiated legal action against one of the most prominent cheat makers for their games. CxCheats.net issued a statement on its Discord server saying it would cease creation and support of all COD cheats sold on its website after being approached with a lawsuit by Activision.

As reported by Eurogamer, it appears the Discord is now offline, but the statement was captured and posted to Reddit by user MrTheRevertz. It reads "As some of you may know, Activision Publishing, Inc has filed a lawsuit against CxCheats.net and has made it clear to us that our services violate their Terms of Use. As a result of our lawsuit with Activision, we have agreed to cease development and support for all Call Of Duty related products or services sold through the site. These products will not be returning to CxCheats in any form. You also should be aware that using third-party tools in Call Of Duty may result in the suspension or banning of your account by Activision Publishing, Inc or the game's developers. We apologize for any pain we've caused to players of Call Of Duty."

The cheats available ranged widely from UI plug-ins to game-breaking aimbots, and seem to have all been removed from the maker's website already, though other cheats for games like Apex Legends and PUBG are still available.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone have always suffered with cheaters, despite near-constant anti-cheating messages and warnings by developers Infinity Ward. It seems now Activision have had to step in to take the legal-bull by the horns, but many players will be rightly arguing that this is too little, too late. Modern Warfare's life-cycle is already on a downward trajectory, with Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War recently being announced to come out later this year on November 13th.
