Activision's biggest problem right now, aside from the piling lawsuits, is cheaters. The developer's properties are riddled with hackers which have made many fans of the Call of Duty series drop the game and wait for Battlefield 2042, or at least wait to see if Activision makes any improvements. And it seems that one of the ways to try and keep Call of Duty Vanguard from being swarmed with hackers, cheaters, and general toxic jerks, they've confirmed that bans acquired in Warzone will apply to Vanguard too.
CharlieIntel has confirmed that the bans are carrying over which may come as a relief to many. CharlieIntel tweeted out: "If you are currently banned in Call of Duty: Warzone - including hardware or account banned - you are banned from playing Call of Duty: Vanguard. For those in the cheats Discords/forums etc. asking why, I think it's pretty obvious why. But thought I'd let you know."

This follows up from the reports we've been seeing that Call of Duty players are experiencing hardware bans. Hardware bans mean that it's not just the account that you've been playing on that will no longer be able to access the software but your entire PC will also be disqualified. It's a good, although not perfect, way to stop cheaters from making new accounts every time they're caught and now many of those cheaters have been banned for life it seems.

However, Eurogamer points out a tweet that might be an issue for Activision. Someone on Twitter who had been banned in Warzone bought Vanguard before realising they realised they were banned in both. Though, yes, they deserve the ban, paying for the game first before realising that they couldn't play it is also a problem Activision is going to need to solve.
